Presidential Book Ends of Amnesty and Immigration for George W. Bush!

President Bush with Presidente Vicente Fox:
It's a great honor to come to Mexico as this important nation enjoys a new birth of freedom, signaled by President Fox's election. Our meetings today have been a really good opportunity to renew our personal friendship and the friendship between Mexico and the United States.
Mexico is the first foreign country I have visited as President, and I intended it to be that way. Our nations are bound together by ties of history, family, values, commerce and culture. Today, these ties give us an unprecedented opportunity. We have a chance to build a partnership that will improve the lives of citizens in both countries.
If I understood correctly, we're going to take questions in Spanish for the Mexican press, and some questions in English for the American press. So we'll go first to the women first, and here we'll take the Spanish question first.
Q I have two questions, one for the President of Mexico. We've spoken about new agreements and a new path on migration issues. What has been the advancements on the two topics as you -- you're campaign to open the border for the free transit of people and to have the free trade agreement in the same way that the European Community has done it?
You talked to President Bush about the amnesty, about the illegal aliens in the United States. I have a question for President Bush. What is the message that you want to send right now, what does the United States want to send to the world as a message with the new bombing of Iraq? And, above all, why, Mr. Bush, at this point, when you are establishing a dialogue with the President of Mexico? Why? Is this a beginning of a new war?
PRESIDENT FOX: Actually, we discussed amply the migration issues that we have. But this is not a meeting in which decisions or details are going to be reached, because they do not belong in the power of -- the executive power, as such, because they have to have the participation of other groups.
We have spoken on migration from the viewpoint of our countrymen that are in the United States, and we have spoken about the possibilities of working on agreements of temporary legal work and employment. We have spoken on the firm idea that we have of fighting violence against immigrants, and to work based on the law, and to see how the coyotes and all the people that will be taking these people -- or the polleros taking our illegal workers into U.S. territory.
We have spoken of a long-term vision and approach and constructive approach on this topic. And perhaps here, the most important thing will be presented by President Bush later on. But certainly there is a new attitude, there is a new way of approaching things, much more positive approach to things on this issue of migration.
The conclusion has been to create a commission at the highest level, as it was read in the Guanajuato Proposal, to begin and to discuss and to advance on this topic on very concrete steps. I believe this is a great advancement on what we had before.
The President's Nephew, George P. Bush "likened the soon-to-be Republican presidential nominee and Uncle to Cesar Chavez," the Los Angeles Times reported in 2000.
  • "This is a President who represents the diversity of our society, who we can count on to change the Republican Party to represent our views.'" … He told the rally his mother had instilled him the values of Cesar Chavez, the Chicano activist who fought for the rights of migrant farmworkers in the United States. 'She told me we have to fight for our race, we have to find the leaders who represent us," he said in fluent Spanish.'

Then President George W. Bush delivered a major address in Miami on Aug. 25, 2000 a major address on U.S.-Latin American relations, in which he unveiled his a view of America.  You could say a "New World Order"
From World Net Daily 
We are now one of the largest Spanish-speaking nations in the world. We're a major source of Latin music, journalism and culture.
Just go to Miami, or San Antonio, Los Angeles, Chicago or West New York, New Jersey ... and close your eyes and listen. You could just as easily be in Santo Domingo or Santiago, or San Miguel de Allende.
For years our nation has debated this change -- some have praised it and others have resented it. By nominating me(Dubya), my party has made a choice to welcome the new America.
From USA Today 2004: 
George P. Bush is the grandson of migrant worker Jose Maria Garnica, who separated from his wife and still lives in Mexico.
Bush nephew campaigns in Mexico
MEXICO CITY (AP) — President Bush's young, Hispanic nephew and his bride are on the campaign trail — in Mexico, where they are joining the increasingly vigorous battle for the votes of 1 million U.S. citizens living south of the border.
President Bush's nephew George P. Bush, the son of Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, speaks Friday at a Mexico City Press Conference by Jaime Puebla, AP
MEXICO CITY (AP) - President Bush's nephew, campaigning for overseas votes in Mexico on Saturday, called the federal policy of arming U.S. Border Patrol agents with plastic pellet guns ``reprehensible.''
Speaking in a mix of English and sometimes-halting Spanish, George P. Bush said his uncle was not to blame for the gun policy, which has angered Mexicans. He instead blamed it on ``some local INS (Immigration and Naturalization Service) guy who's trying to be tough, act macho.''
``If there has been American approval for this policy, that is reprehensible,'' Bush said of the guns, essentially paintball projectiles filled with chile powder. ``It's kind of barbarous.''
These pellet guns were approved at the federal level and had been used on a trial basis since 2002. Our U.S. Border Patrol fired the pepper-balls in 81 instances in 2002-03 and reported no deaths or severe injuries...
The problem is that George P. Bush's mother's family, is originally from Mexico.  The Politician to be be is no longer working as a Lawyer, but like his Father is hoping to make his millions in real estate.  He left the prominent law firm in Dallas and now works for the real estate investment firm Charter Holdings(see "The Heir Apparent").  Additionally young George said in Mexico that the war in Iraq is not popular in Mexico but defended the military action, saying "we're almost done with it.''
He also acknowledged that "there are some people in our (Republican) party who don't see the benefits of immigration," then promised that "President Bush was a proponent of immigration reform!"
 Here is a nice article on what I believe is another factor in President Dubya's big immigration push which stated by the Brits in their Guardian in 04 "He's young, good looking, and Hispanic - could he be the next George Bush in the White House?"
  • "My wife came here legally, but it hurts her just as it hurts me when people give the perception that all immigrants are bad," the Florida governor wrote in an e-mail exchange with The Times.
  • Accusing politicians of "pounding their chests" on immigration for short-term political gain, Florida Gov. Jeb Bush said Tuesday that the tone of the debate had been "hurtful" to him and his Mexican-born wife, Columba.
  • "The cumulative effect of some politicians pounding their chests about immigration is hurtful to both of us," he wrote, referring to himself and his brother. "I fear they do so for current political gain at the expense of thoughtful policy over the long term."
  • "Columba and I watch the news early in the morning and in the evenings," Bush wrote in the late-night e-mail exchange. "The cumulative effect of the coverage is that immigrants are bad and hurting our country. The coverage is black and white, good and bad, without the nuances that the coverage deserves."
  • In his e-mail, Gov. Bush endorsed the idea of a broad guest-worker program encompassing the kinds of low-wage workers sought by farms and factories as well as high-tech professionals from places such as India.
  • Like his brother, he offered no specificity on how to treat current immigrants and whether they should be granted a path to citizenship.
  • "The focus should be on protecting our borders rather than these piling on provisions that are punitive to many who have made a great contribution to our country," he wrote. "Along with that, the focus should be on a guest worker program and a means to deal with the millions of long term undocumented workers….

Then Jeb and Mehlman write this Op-Ed in May 2007:

A Good Immigration Bill WSJ

Immigration reform is very tough. It's an issue that divides both political parties and, on the right, has led many close personal and ideological friends -- people we respect and whose criticism we take seriously -- to oppose new rules governing how people enter this country and how we handle those who are here illegally. But we hope our friends reconsider.

We support the immigration reform compromise worked out in the Senate for a few simple reasons. It strengthens our national defense. It makes our economy more competitive and flexible. It enhances the rule of law and promotes national unity. ...
Our current President Bush position on immigration is outlined in the
Mr. Bush said the plan would require all of the estimated 12 million to 20 million illegal aliens to come forward and register with the government, pay a "meaningful fine," and pay any back taxes, before applying for a Z visa.
    "Amnesty is forgiveness for being here without any penalties. ... This bill is not an amnesty bill. If you want to scare the American people, what you say is, 'The bill's an amnesty bill,' " Mr. Bush said. "That's empty political rhetoric trying to frighten our fellow citizens."
    Mr. Bush denounced those who are "out there hollerin' and saying, 'Kick 'em out,' " saying such an approach "is simply unrealistic. It won't work."
    Mr. Bush said that in a non-election year, "Congress has a historic window to act" on the immigration issue. He repeatedly framed the debate as a battle between courage and fear.
    "It takes a lot of courage in the face of some of the criticism in the political world to do what's right, not what's comfortable. And what's right is to fix this system now before it's too late," the president said.

The Immigration issue is the way President Bush brought to his Administration with Vicente Fox in 2001 and it is the issue he wants to end his Administration 8 years later.  Nice book ends to his Presidency as Commander in Chief Bush.  Mr. President I am not impressed...indeed I am disappointed Sir.  I guess Family before country.  If a Jihadists comes across our Southern Border your beloved nephew will never have a chance at the Oval.  If you want your boy to be Presidente some day BUILT a Wall, Sir!
