White House Dodge

Two weeks ago, when Human Events Political Editor John Gizzi asked White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan whether President Bush would veto an immigration bill that does not include a guest-worker plan, McClellan evaded answering.

Last week, when Gizzi asked McClellan whether the President would sign an immigration bill without a guest-worker plan, McClellan was again evasive.

"What I emphasized was what the President emphasized, too, that we want a comprehensive bill," said McClellan. "We believe that if you’re going to fix the immigration system, you have to do so in a comprehensive way. And that’s what the President is continuing to urge members [of Congress] to move forward on."
