The White House, President George W. Bush

For Immediate Release
Office of the Press Secretary
March 5, 2004

Press Gaggle by Scott Mcclellan

[ ... ]

Q Scott, on this weekend, immigration is something that the President sort of made a big deal out of this new policy before we went down to Mexico, but we haven't heard a lot about it since. What are you saying -- what is the President going to say to President Fox about the prospects for that proposal?

MR. McCLELLAN: Well, you're going to hear from them afterwards, and I imagine that's an issue they will address at their press availability. But the President is strongly committed to moving forward on a temporary worker program that meets our economic needs in this country, and also, at the same time, provides for more humane treatment of those who are here now, working in this country. They did not have the protections that other workers do at this point. But this is talking about providing for jobs to be filled when there are not -- there are no Americans to fill those jobs.

Q Scott, given that both the House and the Senate say they will not take this up, what is the President going to do to move forward on that --

MR. McCLELLAN: Well, he's going to continue to talk about the importance of acting on it. We are continuing to work with Congress to work on legislation that meets the principles that the President outlined.
