This article focuses on U.S. President George W. Bush's plans for immigration reform. Bush went to El Paso, Texas in November to reintroduce his immigration reform policy, which involves giving immigrants temporary guest-worker status for six years, after which they'd have to return home. Bush's new spin is in response to the growing anti-immigration sentiment in the U.S. His plans do not respond to the realities of immigration because the U.S. economy has an overwhelming need for low-skilled, low-wage jobs that only immigrant workers can provide.
