From President Clinton's stern 1995 call to stop "the large numbers of illegal aliens" taking American jobs to President Obama's plea last year for legalizing "responsible young people" to work in the U.S. economy, the politics of immigration can be traced through State of the Union addresses.
"It's a little bit just stunning how tone-deaf they are to the lessons of the election just three weeks ago," said Angela Maria Kelley, vice president for immigration policy at the Center for American Progress, a liberal think tank. "This bill is frankly disrespectful to the notion that we want to have people become citizens, and become full members of the American family. They’re creating a second tier for them to belong in, indefinitely."
Ms. Kelley said Mr. Bush had other domestic matters, such as reforming Social Security, that took precedence over immigration, in 2004 and 2005.
