Editor's Comments of the Day
In his recent letter to Congress, President Bush stated unequivocally that he supports an extension of 245(i). According to The Stein Report, Congressional Quaterly reports that a senior administration official said a 6 to 12 month time frame was discussed when Bush met with Mexican President Vicente Fox. Representative Lamar Smith said of the proposed extension, "Additional time beyond what was already established only rewards aliens who have broken our immigration laws and is unfair to those aliens who do respect our immigration laws by waiting in their home countries." One of candidate Bush's promises was to change the tone of the debate in Washington. What about Texas?
