This article deals with the immigration debate in the U.S. Congress which could affect apparel manufacturers and retailers. President George W. Bush, during a speech on April 24, 2006 in Irvine, California, urged the Senate to overcome the impasse and pass a bill quickly. He again called for a temporary guest-worker program and stronger border patrol enforcement, but left it to Congress to determine what steps to take to deal with the illegal immigrants.
