THE REAGAN METHOD:

Bush plans anti-illegals campaign (Bill Sammon, November 28, 2005, THE WASHINGTON TIMES)

President Bush today will call for a crackdown on illegal immigration, a move aimed at further rallying conservatives who recently cheered Mr. Bush's tough talk on Iraq and the Supreme Court.

But the president will also renew his call for a program to allow Mexicans who have already entered the U.S. illegally to remain here for up to six years. That initiative has long angered conservatives who equate it with amnesty.

"This is going to be about comprehensive immigration reform," a senior White House official said of today's Arizona speech. "He's going to talk about the three elements that comprise such reform -- border security, interior enforcement and a temporary worker program."

As the Gipper did, you trade the illusion of enforcement for the reality of amnesty and legalization--makes everybody happy.
