The White House, President George W. Bush

For Immediate Release
Office of the Press Secretary
January 10, 2004

President's Radio Address

[... ]

To serve the economic needs of our country, we must also reform our immigration laws. Reform must begin by confronting a basic fact of life and economics: Some of the jobs being generated in America's growing economy are jobs American citizens are not filling. This past week, I proposed a new temporary worker program that would match willing foreign workers with willing American employers, when no Americans can be found to fill the jobs. If an American employer is offering a job that American citizens are not willing to take, we ought to welcome into our country a person who will fill that job.

The program I've outlined is not an amnesty program, an automatic path to citizenship. It is a program that recognizes the contributions that many undocumented workers are now making to our economy. This temporary worker program represents the best tradition of our society. It will help strengthen our economy, return order to our immigration system, and secure our homeland.

Thank you for listening.
