A Bump In The Amnesty Road?

Poor, Poor Mr. Bush. After selling out his party, his principles and his country it appears that ramming another amnesty down the American people's throats may not be quite as easy as he'd hoped...
Democrats' ties to labor could complicate immigration reform

WASHINGTON - President Bush's hopes of securing a comprehensive immigration overhaul have brightened considerably in the new Democratic-controlled Congress, but resistance from organized labor - one of the Democratic Party's most loyal constituencies - could complicate those efforts.

The AFL-CIO, which represents 53 unions with more than 9 million members, is ratcheting up opposition to a temporary guest worker program, a key element of Bush's immigration plan. At the same time, two powerful unions in a breakaway labor coalition, Change to Win, have tended to support the provision.

The divisions within labor were evident during the contentious debate over immigration in the previous Republican-controlled Congress. But they take on heightened significance as Democrats assume control of the 110th Congress and begin shaping the legislative agenda.

Organized labor is a bedrock of the Democratic coalition and helped drive Democrats' takeover of Congress in November's elections.
No matter what, this will not be a cakewalk. That's what we in the business a 'psy-ops' program. In other words they want you to believe it's already in the bag so you don't bother to fight.

Here's a hot tip...FIGHT!!
