President Bush seems to be seeking a compromise proposal that would make possible legalization of millions of undocumented workers, while still being acceptable to some Republicans who oppose increased immigration. Whatever proposal the administration presents to Congress, there is sure to be plenty of horse-trading that will go on in that body before the country gets a new statute. It is quite likely that no legislation on these legalization provisions will result this year since Congress has only about 20 business days before its target adjournment date for the year (however, the bills for the extension of 245i are likely to be acted on by Congress next month). In remarks quoted by Reuters, the President said that "so long as there is somebody who wants to hire somebody and somebody willing to work, it seems like to me it's in our nation's interest to make sure the two go together." Clearly, this President has identified the linkage between economics and immigration, a linkage which many of the usual voices in the immigration debate fail to make.
