As it turns out, the Reagan Amnesty wasn't self-described as an Amnesty either, nor was it different in any significant way from what President Bush is proposing.

The Bush proposal, as was the Reagan proposal, is amnesty on the installment plan. The politicos believe that most people are too stupid to discern this truth if the proposal is camouflaged with words such as "temporary" or "guest worker."

Well, to be fair, with the Reagan plan we weren't being kidded into thinking that they'd go home. Eveyone undestood it was Amnesty.

Also, with the Reagan plan, we didn't have the historical failure of a previous Illegal Immigration Amnesty, as we do with the Bush Amnesty.
