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.

As I recall, under the Reagan plan we were promised the border would be tightened up. The Reagan "not an amnesty" was supposed to fix the problem. There's no such pretense this time. Bush actually proposes a legalized way of importing millions more Mexican citizens into our nation, even after the "not an amnesty II".
