A Conversation with Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger

April 18, 2021

In this special edition of Engage at the Bush Center, presented by Highland Capital Management, President George W. Bush and Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger discuss the need for comprehensive immigration reform in our country. This conversation complements the publication of President Bush’s new book, Out of Many, One: Portraits of America’s Immigrants.

Governor Schwarzenegger, whose own immigrant story is included in the book and like President Bush was governor of a border state, participated via video. In part two of the program, a panel of immigrants featured in the book shared their thoughts on what it means to be an American. Both conversations were moderated by NBC DFW anchor Meredith Land.
