STATE OF THE UNION ADDRESS BY THE PRESIDENT
United States Capitol
Washington, D.C.
9:12 P.M. EST

[ ... ]

We hear claims that immigrants are somehow bad for the economy -- even though this economy could not function without them. (Applause.) All these are forms of economic retreat, and they lead in the same direction -- toward a stagnant and second-rate economy. [ added 01/1/06 Ed. ]

[ ... ]

Keeping America competitive requires an immigration system that upholds our laws, reflects our values, and serves the interests of our economy.  Our nation needs orderly and secure borders.  (Applause.)  To meet this goal, we must have stronger immigration enforcement and border protection.  (Applause.)  And we must have a rational, humane guest worker program that rejects amnesty, allows temporary jobs for people who seek them legally, and reduces smuggling and crime at the border.  (Applause.) 

[ ... ]
