Bush to Speak in Irvine on Monday(Heads Up Orange County,CA)
Orange County Register ^ | April 21, 2006 | staff

Posted on 04/21/2006 2:32:38 PM PDT by kellynla

President Bush is extending his weekend trip to California to speak Monday in Irvine on the volatile issue of immigration reform.

Bush will speak to the Orange County Business Council between 8 and 9 a.m. at the Hyatt Regency Irvine, according to Myal Greene, spokesman for Rep. John Campbell, R-Irvine.

The president has repeatedly said he favors a comprehensive approach to immigration reform, one that strengthens borders and includes a guest-worker program that matches "willing workers with jobs that Americans won't do." That position puts him at odds with many Republicans in Orange County, including Campbell, who plans to attend the event in his district.

The majority of GOP House members oppose a guest-worker plan.

"The congressman sees this as an opportunity to share his concerns with the president," Greene said.

Legislation to bolster border security, institute a temporary guest-worker program and provide a path to legalization for many of the estimated 12million illegal immigrants in the country stalled in the Senate two weeks ago.

It is slated for further debate when the Senate reconvenes next week.

Two things Bush will never change, ever:

1. Our terrible border security
2. Our terrible tax system

" jobs that Americans won't do."

I've been living in Japan for 20 years ...Japan is the 2nd richest country in the world ...By and large Japanese pick their own vegetables and fruits ...Most Japanese don't have lawns , but if they did they would mow them by themselves ...Etc, etc...The minimum wage over here is around $ 4 an hour , and there is no shortage of Japanese people to take these jobs ...Very , very few people getting freebies from the government ...

Irvine is a tough place to talk about guest worker programs. That's one of the places that has far more Hispanics than they need/want/can support.

He should be talking about guest workers in places where immigrant labor is needed. Irvine ain't it.

I live in Irvine, and I don't think there are far more Hispanics than we need/want/can support.

Time to break out the "Viva la Reagan Revolution" T Shirts and practice chanting, "We didn't leave The Party, The Party Left us!"

I don't think this one "deserves" it now. My point is that FReepers should not be joining in with DUmmies REGARDLESS of how you feel - I would go to the border with the Minutemen before I joined anti-war Bush bashers.

County Before Party. The conservatives need to get the party back.

I put my country (and county) before party too - that's why I will not support Bush bashers when the country is so closely divided and that support could realistically lead to another conservative President not being elected for decades.

My fear is that if we do not close the border, we will never have a conservative president, or any other president because we will no longer live in a United States they way we know it.

No kidding.

When the Reagan amnesty was argued for, they said it was for one million illegals. Three million took advantage of it.

This time, they're pushing amnesty for 11 million.

If they succeed, God forbid, no one should be shocked too much if 33 million line up to sign up.

And, if as is likely, the vast majority of them follow the ANSWER communists they marched with politically, it could spell the end of the republic.

That's not hyperbole.

No matter how you cut it, it's going to be ugly. I'd just as soon the ugliness was visited on the politicians, politically, now...instead of on the American people later in ways we don't even want to contemplate.
