The White House, President George W. Bush

[ ... ]

Q Is the President going to move forward on his immigration plan that he proposed almost at the beginning of the year and didn't go anywhere, the three-year plan of legal work and then extend it for another period?

MR. McCLELLAN: He remains committed to that proposal. It's something we started discussions with members of Congress on previously. And it's something that he intends to work with members on to get moving again in the second term. It's something he believes very strongly in. America has always been a welcoming society, and this is a program that will match willing workers with willing employers. It will promote compassion for workers who right now have no protection, and it will protect the homeland by helping to control our borders better. And it also provides incentives for those temporary workers to eventually return home to their country of origin.

Q Is there any special plan being worked out with the government of Mexico? There seems to be rumblings or noises coming from south of the border, in the sense that they expect a special relationship on immigration.

MR. McCLELLAN: Well, it's something that we always are in close contact with our friends in Mexico on. Secretary Powell is there now. In fact, I think he's having a press availability here shortly from Mexico. So he might be able to talk to you more about some of the latest discussions that are going on there -- that will go on there while he's there.
