Bush's plan

Well, based on all the talking heads on the news yesterday, it does not seem like Bush has convinced any of the conservatives to change their positions on "border control before anything else." He probably doesn't have the troops or the $'s - but I wonder what would have happened if he had been bold and said he was going to send 20,000 or 25,000 troops - would that have broken the stalemate?

The other thing that was interesting was they said he had originally consider 10,000 troops - then talked to Vincente Fox - and settled on 6,000. Was he really concerned that Fox would say "you are militarizing the border"? Now, I can believe he was concerned that Latino voters would feel that way.

After the speech, Larry King had a group of people - including Edward James Olmos and the guy who founded the Minute Men - and BOTH said "this immigration won't stop until these people have jobs in Mexico."
