Posted on 06/15/2007 1:47:56 PM PDT by Baladas
WASHINGTON At a gathering of Hispanic Christian and community leaders on Friday, President Bush pushed for support for an immigration bill that would legalize millions of unlawful immigrants, highlighting the compassion behind the bill.
Hispanic men and women were praised by Bush for making the United States more vibrant in fields ranging from art to business to religion, and for helping to change America for the better.
The president gave as example success stories of immigrants in the White House and government. He pointed to Sen. Mel Martinez (R-Fla.) who is originally from the communist island of Cuba but is now a member of the United States Senate. He also spoke about a Hispanic American coast guard he recently met who graduated at the top of his class who shared in his speech about his migrant grandfather.
Isnt it a fabulous country where a migrant grandfather can come and have a dream and work hard, and theres his grandson talking about the promise of America in front of the president of the Untied States and his classmates, Bush said. Thats the beauty of America.
However, Bush did not neglect to mention the countrys responsibility to enforce the border, create a lawful way for foreign workers to fill vacant jobs, and resolve the status of illegal immigrants in the country without amnesty and without animosity.

It is becoming obivous that only heathens can be President and be well liked. Christian presidents who do Chirstian things are hated by the left and the right.
Compassion by backside! Lawlessness is more like it!
It is not “compassion”.
It is pusillanimity.
compassion BS behind the bill. There, I fixed it.
I don’t consider what Bush is doing to be “Christian”.
Spanish leaders need no compassion! They are COMMUNISTS!
I’m starting to think the dems are right, Bush is an idiot.
Ever wonder what he says about us behind closed doors? LOL
What is Christian about rewarding lawlessness and rebellion, AngieGOP? We've been more than hospitable to our guests. And now, it's time to help them on their journey home.
I do not any longer support Bush, he is a POS!
Helping the sick is Christian whether you like it or not.
He is an idiot.
Too bad he can’t show such “compassion” to the voters who elected him to be president(of America) twice.
Bush has turned out to be a patriot’s horror story. What kind of warped arrogance and elitism lets this happen???
Mel Martinez is sick?????
I didn’t realize that encouraging the breaking of just laws was “Christian”?
Didn't he mention his buddy Alberto?
When I look out my window and see my neighbor housing 9 cars and 11 illegals I find that my compassion tank is empty.
Compassion, like Charity should begin at home and be voluntariy not usurped...
Who's sick, AngieGOP? John McCain and his cute little posse of veep wannabes?
