    WASHINGTON - The nation's top immigration official says registering 8 million illegal residents for temporary permits, as proposed by President Bush last week, would be a "tall challenge" but doable. Eduardo Aguirre, director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, conceded in an interview that his agency is still struggling with a huge backlog that has recently grown to nearly 6.2 million pending applications.
