Bush's Immigration Speech: Send 6,000 National Guard to the Borders
Bush is speaking now on immigration. What do you think?
News analysis here.
Update: He supports a 5 part program.
1. Must secure borders. It must be open to trade and lawful immigration and shut to illegals, drug dealers and terrorists. By the end of 2008, border patrol officers will increase by 6,000. Will install high tech fences, motion censors, etc. along the borders.
Immediate steps: Use the National Guard, up to 6,000 guard members will be deployed to the southern borders. They will not be involved in direct law enforcement activities. For one year. We will not militarize our borders.
Comment: Did Bush just make the second most unpopular proposal of his presidency, after the War in Iraq? I think so. This will cause outrage among many different groups, including those who have previously supported him.
