Déjà Vu All Over Again

National Journal;5/20/2006, Vol. 38 Issue 20, p53
The article looks at the stand of U.S. President George W. Bush on immigration and his campaign to use biometrics to guard U.S. borders safely. In an immigration speech, Bush spoke evocatively of America's immigrant heritage and outlined a wide-ranging legislative approach that would temporarily install the National Guard on the Mexican border, boost spending for the Border Patrol, re-establish a temporary-worker program, require forgery-proof identify cards using biometric technology, and eventually legalize an estimated 12 million immigrants who have crossed the border without permission in the last dozen years.
