‘One of Our Duties’:

For a moment, the politician speaking in Grapevine, Tex., on August 3 sounded like Rep. Tom Tancredo (R.-Colo.), the chairman of the 82-member Congressional Immigration Reform Caucus, who has been barn-storming the country threatening to run for President if the Republican establishment does not get serious about enforcing the nation?¢â??¬â??¢s immigration laws.

?¢â??¬???We?¢â??¬â??¢ve got to do something about our immigration laws,?¢â??¬  the speaker told a cheering crowd. ?¢â??¬???Our obligation is to secure the borders. We?¢â??¬â??¢ve got to make sure that we have the resources and technologies available for our Border Patrol agents. We?¢â??¬â??¢ve got to make sure we have a focused strategy to prevent people, goods, drugs, whatever, being smuggled into this country. That?¢â??¬â??¢s one of our duties.?¢â??¬  The speaker wasn?¢â??¬â??¢t Trancedo but President Bush, who immediately followed up on this passage in his speech by claiming that one way to secure the borders is to enact his guest-worker plan, which he again argued, unconvincingly, is not an amnesty.
