In his radio address for the week, President Bush renews his public push for passage of the Senate immigration bill. Again attempts to differentiate the current bill from the 1986 Immigration Reform and Control Act--says that it will solve the problems of that bill. He continues to claim that it is not "amnesty" and stresses the value of the "guest worker program"--though the Dorgan amendment would end this bill's guest worker program after five years. Urges Majority Leader Reid to bring bill back to Senate floor quickly.
