Bush eyes Democrats for help on amnesty
President Bush yesterday said he will team up with Democrats to pass an immigration bill with a guest-worker program that his own party blocked this year, and his Republican opponents predicted a bloody intraparty fight but said they cannot stop such a bill from passing.
“We will fight it, we will lose. It will go to the Senate, it will pass. The president will sign it. And it will happen quickly because that’s one thing they know they can pass,” said Rep. Tom Tancredo, Colorado Republican and chairman of the House Immigration Reform Caucus, who had led the opposition to a guest-worker plan. “I am absolutely horrified by this prospect, but I have to face reality.”
Mr. Bush supported a bipartisan majority in the Senate this year that passed a broad immigration bill including a new worker program and citizenship rights for millions of illegal aliens. But House Republicans blocked those efforts, calling them an amnesty, and instead forced through a bill to erect nearly 700 miles of fencing along the U.S.-Mexico border.
Tuesday’s elections removed that obstacle by turning control of the House over to Democrats.
Yesterday, in an afternoon press conference, the president said he shares Democrats’ vision on immigration and will try again for a broad bill.
“There’s an issue where I believe we can find some common ground with the Democrats,” he said.
According to Reuters news agency, a spokesman for Mexican President Vicente Fox cheered Democrats’ success, saying it improves chances for getting a bill done. And Democrats said the issue’s time has come.
“With alignment now in Congress and the White House, this is a unique opportunity,” said Rep. Howard L. Berman, California Democrat, a senior member of the House Judiciary Committee and a leader on the issue.
The first step in combining Mexico, United States, and Canada is to give illegal immigrants amnesty. The American government does not plan to build the 700 mile fence between Mexico and the United States. They figure that they do not need the fence if all illegal immigrants will get amnesty.
Instead of dealing with the problem of illegal immigration, the American government plans on looking the other way. First the American government allowed companies to move overseas and leave millions without a job. The only ones that make the money are the companies, politicians, and the President.
The American government should be looking at how to bring businesses back to America and start putting American’s best interests first above all else.
