The subject is immigration.
WASHINGTON (CNN) — President Bush will speak from the Oval Office Monday about immigration and border security, hot-button issues that have inspired massive demonstrations and a growing political divide.
Starting at 8 p.m., the president is expected to talk for about 20 minutes, and might also address the National Guard’s role in securing the borders.
White House spokesman Tony Snow announced the address earlier Friday. It will be the president’s 21st nationwide address since he took office.
I disagree with President Bush on immigration. He has the sequencing all wrong, as Newt Gingrich outlined earlier in a piece in NRO. He wants to create a guest worker program without closing off the border.
Even so, I’m interested in what he has to say. Will it be the same old song and dance? The folks at Polipundit think they know.
