Con to the question "Should the Government Allow Immigrants Who Are Here Illegally to Become US Citizens?"
"Conservatives should reject this 'guest-worker' program, even if it is Bush's price tag for border protection. Far from solving the crisis, this Chamber of Commerce-LULAC scheme will mean final defeat, after decades of struggle to protect the borders. For though Bush may say, 'I oppose amnesty,' his guest-worker program is amnesty. Amnesty means no punishment and a reward for law-breaking. And that is exactly what Bush is proposing. In his guest-worker program, those who broke our laws and broke into our country get to stay and work for six years, then go home on sabbatical, then return to work permanently. What is that, if not rewarding law-breaking?"
