Bush pledges to work with states to address illegal immigration
: "EL MIRAGE, Ariz. - President Bush said Monday he will work with Gov. Janet Napolitano and other border governors to secure the U.S.-Mexico border, where political leaders have been calling for help to deal with waves of illegal immigrants.
Bush told a crowd in a retirement community that he understands the federal government's obligation to enforce the border.
'It's important for the people of this state to understand, your voices are being heard in Washington, D.C.,' Bush said.
Making reference to U.S. Sen. Jon Kyl, who introduced Bush, the president said 'this senator and this Congress are going to work closely with the administration to make sure we have the resources necessary to do our responsibility, which is to enforce this border. And we'll do so.'
He said he spoke to Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff on Monday about the issue. 'I said, 'Are you working with the governor? You bet we are,' ' Bush said. 'That's the most effective way to do things, to work with the state and local authorities.'
Bush's remarks came in a state that has borne the brunt of the illegal immigration problem for years. Arizona is the most popular crossing point for illegal immigrants on the U.S.-Mexico border."
