Yesterday, in Guatemala City, Guatemala
Does Not Know What “Dispense With” Means, Part I
The American people would have been incredibly proud of watching our military folks dispense with basic health care needs to people who needed help.
Does Not Know What “Dispense With” Means, Part II
And I was sharing with the President a little earlier that we’re going to set up a health care training mission in Panama, so that we can train trainers, so that people in Guatemala can come and get the basic skills necessary to take back to their towns and villages to be able to dispense with basic health care.
When I Grow Up, I Want To Be A Principal Or A Caterpillar
As a matter of fact, I got to pack some lettuce. The President and I were hauling boxes of lettuce, we were putting them in the truck.
He Organized an Organization
I met Mariano Canú. I talked about this man, Mariano Canú, in my speech in Washington, D.C. I never met him, but I was intrigued by his story about how a fellow had gone from being a subsistence farmer, just scratching out a living, barely making it, the father of six kids wondering whether or not they would have a future, and then he organized an organization of small farmers call Labradores Mayas.
The Word Of The Day Is “About”
You should have seen the look on his face, about how proud he was to show to the President of this country and the President of the United States about progress being made.
Mind Your Own Beeswax
As the President mentioned, I’m working with the United States Congress on comprehensive immigration reform. He asked me about an incident that took place up in Massachusetts the other day. I said, yes, we’re going to enforce the laws in our country, just like you should you enforce the laws in yours.
Law Enforcement Enforcing The Law
It is against the law for somebody to hire somebody who is in our country illegally to work. And, therefore, the deportations took place as a result of law enforcement enforcing the law.
One Nation, One Law
It’s against the law to hire somebody who is in our country illegally, and we are a nation of law.
That’s The Instructions
And I think you’ll find that — let me say, I certainly hope you’ll find that people who are in the — that are interfacing with our government are treated with respect and decency. That’s certainly the instructions.
Began To Emerge
He’s referring to the process at this point in time, about why hadn’t a consensus bill in the Senate began to emerge, and it’s because this is a complicated issue that requires both parties learning to work together on this issue.
And then, as I understand it, Senator Kennedy will be carrying the bill on the Democrat side, and then once we can get a coherent Republican position, one that most Republicans are comfortable with, then we’ll start working with the Senator.
As You Know Full Well That
As you know full well that if we don’t have enough consensus, nothing is going to move out of the Senate.
I Ate The Blue Ones … They Taste Like Burning
It will mean somebody, first of all, doesn’t have to sneak in the country in the first place and pay a coyote, or buy forged documents, or sleep in some sleazy place hiding from authorities until you’re able to make destination.
That’s What Time Limits Are For
You won’t be able to — there will be a time limit on the amount of time, and that’s part of the negotiations.
But Not In The City
And that’s a difficult issue, and it’s one that’s got a lot of politics in the country.
Full Of… Hope
And therefore, my hope is — my hope is — it’s certainly not a promise, but my hope would be that we’d be able to get something out of the Senate and then into the House, and something — then they can work the conference in the fall. That would be the hope.
The Doctor Said I Wouldn’t Have So Many Nose Bleeds If I Kept My Finger Outta There
This is — in my judgment, the best way to deal with this problem, and to convince others throughout our country that it makes a lot of sense to commit assets is to think regionally.
Be Able To Affect!
And sometimes our DEA folks can trace back movements of drugs, which might then be able to help the region be able to disrupt and affect.
Offer Not Valid For Members Of The Bush Assministration
Look, I am a “if they break the law, arrest them” person.
Every Country Does
And so we’ve got to have a border.
They Were! Maybe.
In other words, people in Congress were saying, let us do something about border enforcement, and then let’s go comprehensive — I hope that’s what they’re saying.
