President George W. Bush told a group of Texas reporters Friday that he regretted immigration policies were not reformed while he was in office.
"I'm very disappointed that it didn't pass," he said in an interview with correspondents from his home state. "I'm very worried about the message that said, 'Republicans are anti-immigrant.'"

The people are glad Bush is gone.
Ten more days until we don’t have to put up with this crap anymore.
I can hardly wait.
Such a promising start. Such a pathetic finish.
You would think he would get the message that there is a difference between IMMIGRATION and ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION.
The second one is what conservatives are against.
Don’t worry, everybody. You’ll get immigration reform soon enough.
“Ten more days until we dont have to put up with this crap anymore.
I can hardly wait.”
Yeah. Just think. If “reform” had been passed, unemployment could be at a “historical” 25% or maybe even higher. The people living in the country are really into making “history” these days.
You'll get worse crap then. At least you won't have people here pretending that it is good for the country because of the "R" next to the name.
Exactly President Bush.
Illegal Aliens are the same thing as Legal Immigrants who did it the right way.
No Mr President, Republicans are anti-amnesty
Perfectly stated - your 8 words are a spot-on description!
Yeah, Bush has no clue.
Go join McCain south of the border, Pres. Bush.... the people you seem to identify with. It’s certainly not the people of the USA who are being destroyed by this incursion you pushed.
Life on the Border
[snip]IMPERTINENT AND ILLEGAL
To add insult to injury, the Johnsons say the attitude of many illegals they have encountered on their property leaves much to be desired. For example, after a vehicle barrier was constructed about a mile long on the north side of their fence in 2005, Teresa says that in a matter of days the people on the other side of the border rolled up that mile of their fence, apparently thinking they had abandoned it. So she and her husband had to rebuild that stretch of fence to keep their cattle in.
“It was very expensive to replace that fence, and while my husband and I were building it, busload after busload of people were coming out of Palomas, which is the village south of Columbus, “ Teresa explains. “They were crossing right in front of us. They had no fear. There would be 80 or 90 people get off this bus, urinate right in front of us, say all kinds of obscene things to us, give us the finger.”
“I’m sorry, but I think if you want to come over here, we’re definitely not welcoming you with open arms with that kind of attitude,” she says. “Used to, when they came through, they were half-starved, and you would feed them. That’s just what you did. And then you would call the Border Patrol.”
“But now,” Teresa says, “they are demanding, and they want a ridewhich we would never do. It’s a totally different type of person coming across. It’s so dangerous, not just for us but for them, too.
Thanks, for keeping us safe, other than that you were the GOP version of Jimmy Carter. Farewell, Jorge.
The Senate is filled with spineless RINO's.
I feel like a German that under the circumstances supported Hitler.
I was hoping for the best, even though I knew he was a Bush( East Coast libtard Republicrat ), and he started with his ‘Commpasionate Conservative’ crap. I sort of hoped it was a tough love thing, but turned, as I in my heart new it would, into a Ted Kennedy love fest. GW will probably attend the Hero of Chappaquiddick spring funeral and give a eulogy and cry.
Anyways, Bush was less worse, less punk’d the country then AlGore, or Yon Kerry the Duke de Ketchup.
So, Algore/Kerry or GW? I’d vote again for GW, even now.
The pressure from Republicans that stopped president Bush’s amnesty plan.
I am sure that you remember that, when talk radio lead the charge?
The rino is a fool as most democrats and republicrats are and are neo liberals and prove once again that there is none so blind as those who will not see.
The men of the RNC who now control the dead GOP are as liberal and as stupid as the left wing communist democrats are.
They kill the golden goose and are too stupid to know it.
