George W. Bush, United States President between 20 January 2001 and 20 January 2009, hailed US immigrant history and urged lawmakers to see to the delivery of an immigration reform that is comprehensive. This he said while receiving dozens of latest US citizens at Texas ceremony.
During the welcome event held at the George W. Bush Presidential Center in Dallas, Mr. Bush said US representatives have the responsibility of regulating entry into and exit from the country. He pointed out that it is in meeting these responsibilities that America is identified; hence he urged Americans never to lose sight of the blessing and strength that immigration brings despite policy complications that may arise.
With him in the welcome event was his wife, Laura Bush. The former first lady revealed that Texas is a much richer state because of the diversity of cultures that are represented.
Bush is Anti-Trump
The present administration is well known for its hard stance regarding immigration policies. Constitutional concept of birthright citizenship has been threatened, there is the issue of family separation, and asylum seekers are grossly refused, just to mention a few. Bush's position about immigration is in contrast to these policies.
The ex-president said he sees immigration policies eventually becoming fair and just but warned that the reform must begin with taking responsibilities at the border.
In contrast to many Democrats, Bush said there is the need to respect immigration services and Border Patrol workers as well as the country borders. He emphasized the need to maintain or expand future flows of legal immigration as well as create pathways for undocumented immigrants to become citizens.
In January, a naturalization ceremony was also held in the Oval office by president Trump.
