What was GW Bush's record on immigration reform?
Did his role as a previous Gov of Texas influence his decisions made or actions taken?
Compare how the borders were protected under GWB vs Obama? Is there any major difference? If so, please share.
IMO, if any President would have the working knowledge on immigration issues, it would be one who actually lived and led a border state.
We certainly didn't get to where we are today overnight. Was Bush attempting to secure votes too? What other tangibles are these folks providing that entice politicianS to turn their backs? Or make the decisions that they make?

No Keet, I just was wondering if his experience as the Gov and longtime citizen of a border state affected his decisions in this particular area. Perhaps, the shooting of ranchers, drug issues, police issues and all the other associated problems that those in AZ have faced (and are facing) just didn't happen in TX- or at least to Bush's knowledge did not happen. Or maybe, he just didn't care-the votes and other "Things" these folks provided outweighed all the negatives.
Strange..... Guess politicians are a special breed- they all seem to have the same weaknesses. Absolute power corrupts absolutely.
