Bush's speech on immigration

My take of Bush's speech on immigration tonight: The word border used over and over again. Americans the problem here is the border and we will solve the problem the usual way; by declaring war on it, building more prisons, sending troops and training cops. I haven't counted how many times he used the word border but I will. The first part of the speech had the word in every sentence. So now that we have the borders secured did anyone pay attention to the rest of the speech. How can people who are here illegally and therefore have no social security number prove that they are tax paying citizens. How can they ask employers to vouch for them thereby setting themselves up for legal action for hiring illegal immigrants with full knowledge of their status. How does one establish proof of established roots. Literacy in english? Children born here? Network of relatives?
Again the only real message of this speech was that the National guard is headed for the border. How is this going to play in the Hispanic community, by far the biggest minority in the country? Will LA hispanics understand that the rest of the country beats to a different drummer and limit their radicalism?
Just a few questions...
