WASHINGTON - President Bush plans to address the nation Monday night on the immigration debate, trying to build momentum for legislation that could provide millions of illegal immigrants a chance to become American citizens.
The White House said it was seeking time from television networks for the president's remarks.
"This is crunch time," Tony Snow, the new White House press secretary said Friday at his first off-camera, or informal, briefing.
On Thursday, Senate leaders reached a deal to revive a broad immigration bill that had appeared doomed just several weeks ago.
Key to the agreement is who will be negotiating a compromise with the House, which last December passed an enforcement-only bill that would subject the estimated 11 million to 12 million illegal immigrants in the United States to felony charges as well as deportation.
Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, R-Tenn., said the Senate will send 14 Republicans and 12 Democrats to negotiate with the House, with seven of the Republicans and five Democrats coming from the Judiciary Committee. The remaining seven Republicans will be chosen by Frist and remaining seven Democrats chosen by Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev.

Waste of time, we are not buying it. He still doesn't get it.
Will it be in English?
Unfortunately, that is an excellent question.
>>Will it be in English?<<
And which flag will they be waving?
What part of this doesn't he understand?!
If the government doesn't care about this law, why should we care about obeying any law?
Chaos is coming ......and then dictatorship.....
It happens in every empire.....it is inevitable!!

I'm sure the president believes what he is doing is reasonable, but Americans are fed up.
Can't we just negotiate with Iran-let them keep any nukes they may aready have in the country? It'd be too much to expect them to get rid of them if they're already there.
And he never will!
The handlers of the illegals get it loud and clear!
Thiey are America! This is their country because it's connected to Mexico.
That's what kills me...do people honestly think that the militant Mexican-flag-waving mobs we saw recently will soften their militancy once legalized?
They will see it as a victory for Aztlan. Give 'em an inch, they'll take the whole country.
He is going to try and covert 80% of americans with his vaulted communication skills.
He's violating his oath and I can no longer support him.
What's there to discuss? Enforce the laws already on the books!
Bush is/has already lost many of his die hard supporters. All he needs to do is look at FNC to see what the views are voting to see more of and read FR posts. He is not the man I voted for.
He's sticking to House Republicans, trying to pressure them into caving once the Senate bill passes.
He's quite a Republican.
And then they wonder why nobody listens to them...
The Aztlanazi's have it coming to them however, because there are more than enough ordinary Americans who will more than welcome an opportunity to rid these militants of there "habits".
Gives a whole new meaning to the term "TEX MEX" doesn't it?
Bush could turn everything around---and I mean to the point of double-digit GOP victories in the fall---if he said six words.
"I was wrong" and "No, su puede."
