Sidelined By War, Bush Also Sought For Immigration Reform
There is growing momentum for some sort of an immigration reform to be passed this year; the last time there was a big push in 2006 and 2007. President George W. Bush made the issue a priority when he took office and advocated something very similar to what is being considered today. But then Sept. 11 happened and pushed the issue to the backburner. By the time it did come up, Republicans derailed the president's proposals.
