The article addresses the debate over illegal immigration and plans of U.S. President George W. Bush to secure the U.S.-Mexico border with National Guard troops. Citizens of Tucson, Arizona, 71 miles north of the border, say the troops will make no difference to the influx of Mexican immigrants. Even in a city which is 40 percent Hispanic, the same debates which are heard nation-wide, are heated issues.
