President Bush speaks on Immigration 

Border enforcement (especially the border with Mexico) through more border patrol agents, technology, National Guard deployments, involvement by state and local law enforcement, and larger detention facilities; a Temporary Worker program with background checks; better enforcement of laws against hiring illegal immigrants and a new immigrant identity card; a "middle ground" policy to those illegal immigrants who have been in the U.S. long enough to establish roots; and re-embracing the Melting Pot and the English language. These are the themes I heard in President Bush's national address on policy on illegal immigration last night. What did you hear?
