MIAMI (AP) -- Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush is outlining a six-point strategy to bolster security at the nation's border and overhaul its immigration laws.

The former Florida governor said Monday that finding a solution to the status of people in the country illegally "is a nonstarter if our borders are not secure against future illegal immigration."

Bush is proposing the estimated 11 million people living in the country illegally could earn legal status "over time," after they pass a criminal background check, pay a fine and learn English, among other requirements.

Bush outlined his proposal Monday morning, before traveling to New Hampshire to speak at an evening forum. Bush posted details of his plan to medium.com, a social media website.
