Immigration In President Bush's Address

President Bush had this to say on immigration in his 2007 State of the Union address.

"Extending hope and opportunity in our country requires an immigration system worthy of America -- with laws that are fair and borders that are secure. When laws and borders are routinely violated, this harms the interests of our country. To secure our border, we're doubling the size of the Border Patrol, and funding new infrastructure and technology.

"Yet even with all these steps, we cannot fully secure the border unless we take pressure off the border -- and that requires a temporary worker program. We should establish a legal and orderly path for foreign workers to enter our country to work on a temporary basis. As a result, they won't have to try to sneak in, and that will leave Border Agents free to chase down drug smugglers and criminals and terrorists. We'll enforce our immigration laws at the work site and give employers the tools to verify the legal status of their workers, so there's no excuse left for violating the law.

"We need to uphold the great tradition of the melting pot that welcomes and assimilates new arrivals. (Applause.) We need to resolve the status of the illegal immigrants who are already in our country without animosity and without amnesty. Convictions run deep in this Capitol when it comes to immigration. Let us have a serious, civil, and conclusive debate, so that you can pass, and I can sign, comprehensive immigration reform into law."

Dear Weekly Editor:
The comment (IW 01/22/07) asks if Representative Tom Tancredo has "changed his mind on immigration" since he claims to be a "common sense Reagan conservative". To support this rhetorical question you publish part of the 2nd. paragraph of the comments by President Reagan when he signed IRCA (the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986) wherein he said, in part, that "we have consistently supported a legalization program". In so doing you ignored the rest of the paragraph. The comments can be found at and the 2nd. paragraph actually reads as follows:

"In 1981, this administration asked the Congress to pass a comprehensive legislative package, including employer sanctions, other measures to increase enforcement of the immigration laws, and legalization. The act provides these three essential components. The employer sanctions program is the keystone and major element. (Emphasis added.) It will remove the incentive for illegal immigration by eliminating the job opportunities which draw illegal aliens here. We have consistently supported a legalization program which is both generous to the alien and fair to the countless thousands of people throughout the world who seek legally to come to America. The legalization provisions in this act will go far to improve the lives of a class of individuals who now must hide in the shadows, without access to many of the benefits of a free and open society. Very soon many of these men and women will be able to step into the sunlight and, ultimately, if they choose, they may become Americans".

I have heard Congressman Tancredo speak on numerous occasions and find his views in keeping with Reagan's comments. Your selective quotes are misleading.
