Immigration reform unlikely soon, Bush tells Fox

On July 17, 2006;

“Mexico City (Reuters) - President Bush told Mexican President Vicente Fox the U.S. Congress is unlikely to pass immigration reforms before November congressional elections, Fox said on Monday.
The Mexican president asked Bush about Congress' negotiations on immigration when the two leaders met at the Group of Eight summit in Russia during the weekend.

Bush cautioned that time was running out.
"He pointed out that this period is very short, there are only two or three weeks before Congress members go on the election campaign," Fox told Mexican radio on a flight from St. Petersburg, Russia, to Madrid.

"So the chance of the immigration issue reaching approval in the House of Representatives and reaching joint approval isn't very high," Fox said”.
