Comments: President Bush's speech on immigration

Nice round-up.

Don't forget, though, that those who earned their citizenship by serving in the military were LEGAL immigrants. Seems a little presumptuous -- and maybe in bad taste -- to invoke their heroism in a speech about illegal immigration.

You're absolutely right, TS, it was inappropriate (as well as inapplicable.) I think the president was attempting to counter the blowback from the demonstrations -- the carrying of Mexican flags and the statements by the "reconquistas" pretty much destroyed the credibility of the illegal immigrants and their cause.
