The Bush administration wants to grant amnesty to hundreds of thousands of Mexican illegal aliens now in the United States, according to the new U.S. ambassador to Mexico.
Tony Garza, sworn in this week at the White House, told reporters in Mexico City that reaching an accord legalizing the status of Mexican immigrants

Very predictable, totally disastrous. Bush is going to push this assault on Americas sovereignty through come hell or high water. In the meantime I'm going to check into what laws I can safely break and get an Amnesty for it. Im not hopeful Ill find much.
All about the so-called cheap labor.
Our borders are not secure and American citizens are being treated like criminals while illegal aliens are rewarded and catered to. Meanwhile, Grandma and Grandpa are being frisked at the airport by an illegal alien who stole a social security number after sneaking over the border.
If fedgov secured the borders and President Bush would quit acting like the Pander-in-Chief, then us Americans would not have to give up our privacy and safety. As long as we tolerate illegal aliens flooding over our borders, Americans are not safe from another terrorist attack.
HELL NO!!! RIGHT ON, TANCREDO!!!
I'm not going to let these people jerk my chain all the time. I'm going to wait until the President actually does something, and judge him on the act, not the rumor, because there are going to be plenty of rumors.
So far, I've sent money to the NRA to finance lobbying for arming pilots and for fighting CFR, and we have a Homeland Security bill now waiting signature that allows arming pilots (and I have a nice letter from my Congressman informing me that we were going to get it) and we have the Supreme Court recently deciding to take the case against the CFR law (Bush strategery to get the parts he didn't like declared unconstitutional and keeping the parts he did like that raised individual contribution limits).
PLUS, and a HUGE plus, we now have a Republican Senate again! Mostly due to the hard work and strategery of President Bush.
So, I'm not going to let these articles yank my chain every few days with rumors.
"If we don't do something about their status, we will be admitting that our country has a permanent underclass," Mr. Garza said.
Mr. Garza told Mexico's Reforma and El Universal newspapers that the United States could offer legalized residency to as many as 15 percent of the undocumented aliens who have been here for more than 10 years.
"What I would like to see is us have a debate to establish some criteria to legalize these people who have been part of our community," Mr. Garza told Reforma. "I believe we should recognize them, giving them some sort of status."
Our new Ambassador to Mexico, Tonly Garza is not a nobody, he's been tight with GWB since the earliest Texas gubernatorial days. He's being fast-tracked in the GOP farm system for future national aspirations.
He is hardly a loose cannon, shooting his mouth off right after being confirmed. He's speaking with the full knowledge and approval of Karl Rove and President Bush.
A senior State Department official said he was unaware of any pending immigration proposal involving Mexico, and questioned whether it was wise to make recommendations that Congress might not approve...
But the senior official noted that Mr. Garza "came directly from the White House, so maybe he knows something we don't."
Ambassador Tony Garza's comments are rumors?
Amnesty? Like hell!
Okay, go ahead and gripe. It's the American Way, and probably does get them to back off some stuff. ;-)
