MIAMI (AP) — The Bush family is returning from the margins of American politics, reasserting itself in a series of ways. That includes making the case for a broad immigration overhaul that has divided the Republican Party.

Former President George W. Bush has surfaced from a self-imposed political exile to promote the issue. He's also has been talking about his work on AIDS and cancer in Africa.

His brother, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, has written a book on immigration reform and is keeping the door open to a presidential run in 2016. And George P. Bush, Jeb's oldest son, is running for statewide office in Texas.
