Bush Heads for Montebello
Seeks Merger With the Mexican Mess

Flags at Montebello High

Red Dot As I See It -- by Glenn Spencer
Houston Chronicle -- August 20
Bush seeks to boost Canada, Mexico ties
...Bush and Calderon will have their own one- on- one session later Monday.
    With them, the messy issue of immigration looms large. The last time these two leaders met, in March in Mexico, Bush was optimistic about getting a new immigration law.
    Since then, his plan died in Congress.
    So Bush recently issued an executive order meant to tighten border security, streamline guest-worker programs and pressure employers to fire illegal immigrant workers.
    The U.S. government has been working on a major aid package to help Calderon fight drug trafficking in Mexico. The deal may be announced in part or in whole at the summit.
    The three leaders will join at day's end for dinner, then resume talks Tuesday.
