President Bush delivers a speech tonight to prod Congress to pass an immigration plan that deals with national security as well as providing a path to legal status for millions of illegal immigrants in the country.

Bush is talking to the nation in his address–but his real target audience are the members of the House and Senate. The Senate is negotiating a bipartisan compromise that may stick–but the real hurdle is finding common ground with the House.

President Bush To Address The Nation On Comprehensive Immigration Reform.

DAN BARTLETT: “What the President will talk about is a dramatic expansion of Border Patrol agents. We’ve already increased funding for the border under his Presidency by 66 percent, but as we build up the capacity of the Border Patrol Agency, and that takes time, in a more immediate function, the President will ask a number of our National Guard units to help in a supporting role. Now, I know a lot of people have questions about this, but this is something the Guard is already doing on a much more limited basis right now, but in this capacity, they will be in a supportive role. They will not have law enforcement powers in and of itself, but they will help building infrastructure, surveillance, and those things. So it’s not necessarily a militarization of the border, but what it is is filling an immediate need to free up more Border Patrol agents so they can do the arresting and detention there on the spot.” (FOX News’ “FOX And Friends,” 5/15/06)
