This morning President Bush met with Jose Manuel Barroso, President of the Commission of the European Communities in the Oval Office at the White House.

This afternoon, the President met with Secretary of Homeland Security Michael Chertoff, Cabinet Members and Legislators in the East Room of the White House to sign the Homeland Security Appropriations Act for 2006, which increases border security, and provides more detention facilities and speedier removal of illegal immigrants.

The White House website has provided a Fact Sheet with the details of the Appropriations Act.

Enjoy your trip to Sanity Island on the Daily Dose!!!

Quote of the Day: To defend this country, we've got to enforce our borders. When our borders are not secure, terrorists and drug dealers and criminals find it easier to come to America. This administration is going to work with Congress to make sure we do our job, and that starts with having a clear strategy. And here's how the strategy has got to be: We've got to strengthen security along our borders to stop people from entering illegally. In other words, we've got to stop people from coming here in the first place. Secondly -- (applause) -- secondly, we must improve our ability to find and apprehend illegal immigrants who have made it across the border. If somebody is here illegally, we've got to do everything we can to find them. And thirdly, we've got to work to ensure that those who are caught are returned to their home countries as soon as possible. The bill I sign today will provide critical resources for all these efforts.

For the past four years, we've worked with Congress to implement the strategy. To stop illegal immigrants from coming into the country, we've increased manpower, we've upgraded technology, and we've improved the physical barriers along our border. In other words, we've worked together to implement the strategy.

Since I've been in office, we've increased funding for border security by 60 percent, and we've hired more than 1,900 new Border Patrol agents. We've employed new technology to help our agents do their job -- from unmanned aircraft, to ground censors, to infrared cameras. We've made better use of physical structures to help our agents do their job. We've taken steps to complete a 14-mile fence running along the San Diego border with Mexico.

Stopping people from crossing our borders illegally is only part of the strategy. The other part of our strategy is enforcing our immigration laws. Since 2001, we've increased funding for immigration enforcement by 35 percent. We've added nearly 1,000 new agents and criminal investigators to help us find and return illegal immigrants. We've targeted violent criminal gangs, whose members are here illegally

And our busy First Parents, checking out their new locomotive.......

Former President George H.W. Bush and his wife, Barbara, tour a new locomotive numbered 4141 in honor of the 41st president Tuesday, Oct. 18, 2005, at Texas A&M in College Station, Texas. The design replicates Air Force One and the unveiling precedes the opening of 'Trains: Tracks of the Iron Horse' Nov. 7th at the Bush Library.

It is a good day for the President when he promises to send the illegals back. Now, do it Mr. President and don't worry about your SCOTUS nominee. I and many others are just waiting to descend on the first Republican who doesn't support you and your nominee.

You look confident Mr. President and you deserve that look. Where are the pictures of Laura?

Guess what you got today? First place by nine seconds. Congratulations!

Beating me by those nine seconds. But what is first place stolen, among friends? ;-) I have no animosity on losing by nine seconds. If I did, I would probably go on and on about how hurtful it was to miss first place by several seconds. I would probably keep bringing it up and describing the bitter agony of being nine seconds off the mark. I would most certainly find it impossible to congratulate someone who beat me by nine seconds, no matter how many times he/she had tried to get first place. But hey, since I'm not going on and on and on about it, since I don't keep bringing it up, it is infinitely clear how much it doesn't bother me, eh?

When I saw these 2 photos earlier the first thing I thought of was with all the boo ha ha about the staged interview with the soldiers rubbish the media keep harping about whether there would be some snide comment on how these men were standing with blue, red, blue red ties. Knowing how petty the media can be I would not have been surprised.
