YUMA -- President GW Bush today visited Arizona, focused on border and immigration issues. The visit comes just two days after migrants protested him in Los Angeles.
Thanks, Mr. President, for avoiding Tucson.
Bush and Congress may be getting closer to trying something on immigration, but it still seems like it will include too much border militarization.
Rep. Grijalva, my rep who covers SW Tucson to Yuma, was not there. He is very busy, and sometimes you are more powerful in absence.
Gov. Napolitano was there with Bush.
The President will continue to struggle most with his own GOP about reforming failed US border policy.
Bush should spend the political capital to lead with Congress for a border solution this year.
