Comments of President Bush's Recent Public Address About Immigration
Monday night, at 8:00 pm, President Bush addressed the nation in what was considered a rare broadcast concerning the issue of illegal immigration that has been a hot topic in the news lately. In this twenty minute presentation, there were important points which were made by the president as to what he would do about the situation along the United States/Mexico border and the issue of the employment of illegals by desperate employers. Suggestions made by the president included a deploy of the US National Guard to the border to help out the border patrol until new technology is implemented, a new version of identification for immigrants that would give employers precise information as to whether or not they are in good status to work, and what to do to with those illegal immigrants already in the country making a living.
First off, I just want to say congrats to George W. Bush for actually doing something right. From what I heard in this speech, this sounds like something that is feasible and there is no reason to me why it would be wrong. He addresses every facet of the current immigration issue. I like the fact that he still wants to keep the image of the great big melting pot in America, for it was this that got my parents and other relatives over here. He is going about this whole situation in a totally rational and strategic way that satisfies the law and at the same time can satisfy many Mexicans especially those that are already in the country hiding as illegals. Kudos to the president to making probably the first good decision of his whole tenure as our president. Though late, it is really good. The only thing that can ruin all of this for our head of state is how he goes about this, and right now that means the issue of legislation and most importantly the stretching of our supplies which are the mighty men and women of the national guard.
