President Bush is calling on Congress to develop legislation that will offer temporary worker status to undocumented men and women now employed in the United States and to those in foreign countries who have been offered employment here. The legal status would expire after 3 years (with the ability to be renewed). Temporary workers then must return home or apply for a green card under existing law, unlike the blanket amnesty that was enacted in 1986. It would discourage future illegal entry by providing incentives such as the ability to go home to visit family without concern, and enhanced workplace enforcement against those who violate the immigration laws. The President is also committed to working with other nations to allow foreign workers to receive credit in their nations’ retirement systems for time worked in the U.S., and supports the creation of tax-preferred savings accounts they can collect when they return to their native countries.
If you don't believe that this isn't amnesty then you must be Karl Rove. (If you are Karl Rove then don't ever darken the doorsteps of my blog again.) See quote
