Quote of the Day:

President Bush: The people of the United States are proud to celebrate Cinco de Mayo with our Mexican neighbors. Our two countries continue to stand for the principles that the Mexico army defended at Puebla. We believe that democracy represents the true will of people. We believe that freedom is God's gift to every man, woman and child on the face of this Earth. (Applause.)

Good evening, jonny, and thanks for passing along snugs' very good news about her Dad. I know he will be glad to be home and out of the hospital. How long was he there?

Any Queen Elizabeth II tonight?

I do hope that it does not rain for her Kentucky Derby experience. She has never been but has sent her horses here for it.

She looks very good...especially for 81 yrs....I hope she takes after her Mum and lives for many more years.

President George W. Bush welcomes guests to the Rose Garden at the White House Friday, May 4, 2007, to celebrate Cinco de Mayo and recognize the contributions of Mexican Americans. Members of the band Los Hermanos Mora Arriaga, who performed at the ceremony, are seen in background.

President Bush: In Washington, we're now in the midst of an important discussion about immigration. Our current immigration system is in need of reform. It is not working. We need a system where our laws are respected. We need a system that meets the needs of our economy. And we need a system that treats people with dignity and helps newcomers assimilate into our society. (Applause.)

We must address all elements of this problem together, or none of them will be solved at all. We must do it in a way that learns from the mistakes that caused previous reforms to fail. I support comprehensive immigration reform that will allow us to secure our borders and enforce our laws, to keep us competitive in the global economy, and to resolve the status of those already here, without amnesty and without animosity.

Queen Elizabeth II and Vice President Dick Cheney arrive with other dignitaries at the historical Jamestown settlement near Williamsburg, Virginia, May 4, 2007. It is the Queen's first visit to the United States in 16 years.


Vice President Cheney: This is indeed an historic day for Virginia and for the United States. And it's certainly a privilege for Lynne and me to join all of you in greeting Her Majesty the Queen, and His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh. Your Majesty, 50 years ago, on your first visit to America as a sovereign, you were given a very warm welcome. A half-century has done nothing to diminish the respect and affection which this country holds you. And we receive you again today in that same spirit. You honor us by returning for this anniversary of Jamestown Settlement, and we deeply appreciate your presence this morning.

Vice President Dick Cheney delivers remarks welcoming Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II during the 400th anniversary celebrations at Jamestown Settlement in Williamsburg, Virginia, Friday, May 4, 2007.

Vice President Cheney: Four centuries ago, more than a hundred colonists aboard three small ships were just days from reaching this shore. They'd been at sea nearly five months, and great hardships awaited them on the banks of the James River. Yet from the time of their arrival here, the world would never again be as it was. Inside a little three-sided fort in this corner of Virginia, large events were set in motion, and great and noble traditions were introduced in America. So we pay homage to the first English settlement on the North American shore, and we mark the 14th of May, 1607 as a providential moment in the life of this nation.

Jamestown began as a commercial venture, yet within a generation, Virginia was a colony of the Crown. In time, those colonies would be 13 in number, and together they would become the United States of America. The beliefs and ways of life observed here were vital in shaping the character of the nation we know today. And these traditions -- liberty and law; private property; the spirit of enterprise; and commerce among peoples -- all came from the island nation that the colonists of Jamestown had called home.

Here at this first settlement, named in honor of the English King, we are joined today by the sovereign who now occupies that throne. She and Prince Philip are held in the highest regard throughout this nation, and their visit today only affirms the ties of trust and warm friendship between our two countries. Your Majesty and Your Royal Highness: All of us feel very privileged, and we'll certainly remember this day that we shared your company. So, on behalf of President Bush and the people of this land, I'm proud to say thank you for joining us, and welcome to the United States of America. (Applause.)
