Bush and Mexican President Discuss Immigration Issues
This week, U.S. President George Bush and Mexican President Vicente Fox spoke to each other about how the two countries could collectively improve border security and minimize the level of violence that occurs along the U.S.-Mexico border.
"Primarily, they talked about the increased border violence, and the two leaders talked about the importance of working together to improve our border security and stop the violence," said Bush spokesman Scott McClellan.
Bush also gave an update to Fox on the Guest Worker Program and, according to McClellan, informed the Mexican president that he would continue to push for the nonimmigrant visa program.
In addition, according to McClellan, "they also talked about the security and prosperity partnership that was developed by Canada, Mexico and the United States, and talked about the possibility of meeting soon on that initiative.”
