Border Hawk?

Signing the Homeland Security appropriations bill this week, President Bush often sounded like Rep. Tom Tancredo (R.-Colo.), chairman of the House Immigration Reform Caucus.

?¢â??¬???[Homeland] Secretary [Michael] Cherthoff told the Senate earlier this morning our goal is clear: to return every single illegal entrant with no exception,?¢â??¬  Bush said. Then he outlined the immigration-enforcement measures put into the bill at the insistence of border-security hawks in Congress: new Border Patrol and Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents, and new detention beds to hold illegal immigrants awaiting deportation. Finally, he pitched his plan for converting illegal aliens into ?¢â??¬???guest workers?¢â??¬  by ?¢â??¬???matching willing employers with willing workers from foreign countries on a temporary legal basis.?¢â??¬  Bottom line: Bush?¢â??¬â??¢s next major domestic policy initiative is likely to be a push for an illegal-alien amnesty.
