Immigration Speech Tonight

President Bush addresses the nation on immigration tonight at 8 pm EST. Here is some background reading by Tyler Cowen and Daniel Rothschild from today's LA Times.

Update: My favorite lines from the speech:
Our new immigrants are just what they have always been--people willing to risk everything for the dream of freedom. And America remains what she has always been--the great hope on the horizon, an open door to the future, a blessed and promised land. We honor the heritage of all who come here, no matter where they are from, because we trust in our country's genius for making us all Americans.
