President George W. Bush's immigration plan is a "public relations campaign, with no long-term solutions," Mike Honda, a Democratic congressman from California and vice-chairman of the Democratic National Committee, said.
In a nationally televised speech Monday, Bush said he will send 6,000 National Guard troops to the U.S.-Mexican border and endorsed creating a temporary worker program to ease the strain caused by the flood of illegal immigration. Bush would boost the number of Border Patrol officers to about 18,000 by the end of 2008, which would more than double the size of the force since he took office.
"At a time when our country needed a detailed, long-term solution, we instead received short-term window dressing fixes," said Honda Saturday in the Democrats' weekly radio address.
