And the point of Bush’s immigration speech was?
Amnesty, that is Bush’s POINT! Bush simply asked for amnesty (guest worker) first, and enforcement as a tertiary afterthought. Other than announcing 6,000 National Guard over the next to years to assist the Border Patrol, it was the Senate Plan through and through.
Bush & the Senate are not representing those who voted him in, nor are they representing the vast majority of Americans. Just who Bush & the Senate are representing is anyones guess at this point.
I prefer comprehensive enforcement now, no amnesty latter.
Amnesties are all too common legislative efforts to forgive the breaking of immigration laws and to make it possible for illegal aliens to live permanently in the United States. Amnesties represent a system of federal rewards and assistance for illegal migrants, and they entice an even greater number of illegal migrants.
