AG: No immigration bill by election

Here is an update on immigration reform;

"Gonzales says border security must be 1st step of any plan, August 22, 2006, Gromer Jeffers, Jr., The Dallas Morning News

Attorney General Al Gonzales said Monday that it was unlikely Congress would
settle on an immigration overhaul bill by November, leaving the matter to be
decided by a lame-duck president and a new Congress.

"It's really going to be a challenge to get something done before the
election," Mr. Gonzales told The Dallas Morning News' editorial board. "But it's got
to get done. The problem is only going to be worse."

Overhauling national immigration policy has become one of the most
challenging issues facing Congress and President Bush.

And the collage of proposals – ranging from walls to keep out illegal
immigrants to guest-worker programs that create paths to citizenship – could have an impact on the November midterm elections".
