    Former President George W. Bush today cheered on the “progress” in pushing comprehensive immigration reform through Congress. “The legislative process can be ugly,” Bush said with a chuckle in an interview aired today on ABC’s “This Week.” “But it looks like they're making some progress.”

  • Jay Ambrose: The Bush plan on immigration - Those Furious Orcs Are Talking

    Jay Ambrose: The Bush plan on immigrationThose opposed to President Bush's illegal immigration initiatives need to share their answer with us.By JAY AMBROSE, ambrosej@shns.comJanuary 15, 2004 Certain opponents of President Bush's illegal-immigration initiatives seem as furious and combative as Orcs in the "Lord of the Rings" movies, and I have to say some of their points are as excellent as their rhetoric is frightening. Yes, the Bush plan for granting illegals with jobs a three-year extension of their stay can be understood as a subterfuge for amnesty. The plan is indeed unfair to those who have played by the rules,...

    Immigration reform advocates predict that President Bush's immigration plan will not succeed in Congress this year. "It's not going anywhere," said Rep. Tom Tancredo (R.-Colo.), chairman of the Congressional Immigration Reform Caucus. Although some Republican leaders have made vague statements of support for the plan, conservative Republicans and liberal Democrats, together with pro-immigration groups, have all attacked the plan, the latter because it does not ensure a path to citizenship for illegal aliens and new foreign workers. House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Sensenbrenner (R.-Wis.) and House Immigration Subcommittee Chairman John Hostettler (R.-Ind.) are immigration hawks who have remained noticeably silent...

    Just Enforce the Immigration Law by Terence P. Jeffrey Posted Jan 14, 2004 If Congress enacts President Bush's immigration reform plan, liberals immediately will begin pushing to convert it into an unambiguous amnesty by asking questions the plan's Republican defenders will have a hard time answering: Can it be squared with our national ideals of meritocracy and equality before the law? Or will it create an unsustainable caste system in the American work force? As President Bush explained it, the plan would transform "the millions of undocumented men and women now employed in the United States" and "those in foreign...

    City Journal The Illegal-Alien Crime Wave Heather Mac Donald Winter 2004 Some of the most violent criminals at large today are illegal aliens. Yet in cities where the crime these aliens commit is highest, the police cannot use the most obvious tool to apprehend them: their immigration status. In Los Angeles, for example, dozens of members of a ruthless Salvadoran prison gang have sneaked back into town after having been deported for such crimes as murder, assault with a deadly weapon, and drug trafficking. Police officers know who they are and know that their mere presence in the country is...

    The National Border Patrol Council is the labor organization that represents all 10,000 non-supervisory U.S. Border Patrol employees... On January 7, 2004, President George Bush outlined his proposals for immigration law reform. The National Border Patrol Council finds his proposal to be a slap in the face to each and every man and woman who has ever worn the Border Patrol uniform. Border Patrol Agents risk their lives on a daily basis protecting the citizens of the United States, and many have lost their lives doing so. The President has apparently decided that cheap labor and votes outweigh obedience to...
  • Immigration reform: It didn't work in Europe, and it won't in the U.S.

    PRINCETON, New Jersey President George W. Bush's immigration reform proposal, unveiled on Wednesday, is a classic guest worker program on the European model. As such, it may be doomed from the start: Europe's guest worker programs created as many problems as they solved, and to this day they remain unpopular. Guest worker programs were widely used in Europe from the 1950's through the 1970's, a period of labor shortages. Germany's guest worker program was ended more than two decades ago. Yet Germans still have not resolved the question of what to do with the millions of Turks and Yugoslavs still...
  • Bush immigration "principles" mirror Cornyn bill (Tom Delay Has "Severe Reservations" About Plan)

    WASHINGTON - President Bush effectively threw support behind much of an immigration bill filed by Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, when he laid out his immigration reform proposals in a White House speech Wednesday. Although many believed Bush would model his proposals on a bill filed by Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., and other Arizona lawmakers, the president's immigration principles were more in line with Cornyn's. Like Bush's proposal, Cornyn's bill would create a temporary worker program open to foreigners in their native country and illegal immigrants already in the United States. But it does not give the workers a fast track...
