Here President Bushs speech on the temporary worker program. Some comments on the plan, from many perspectives: John Podhoretz, James Pinkerton, Ruben Navarrette, Washington Times editorial, and Washington Post editorial. I have not had time to focus on this, but I will. For now let me just say that as a serious substantive matter (ignoring its political effects) it is not crazy and my immediate opinion (without deep thinking) is favorable. This proposal is not off the wall, or crazy. And it most certainly will lead to some good conversations about this very big issue of illegal immigration, one in which I am perfectly willing to participate, but later. For the moment Im trying to figure out the Emancipation Proclamation and its effects; another interesting problem having to do with citizenship.
