Maybe Pres. Bush's decision to visit Georgia to push the need for comprehensive immigration reform should not come as a surprise.
Nor should the site of his visit surprise us -- the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center in Brunswick. This Federal Law Enforcement Training Center facility trains agents who protect the nation's borders and who deal with illegal immigrants (other than the one in Brunswick, two others do the same thing, one in Artesia, N.M. and a third in Charleston, S.C.).
Although our Congressman Rep. Jack Kingston won't accompany the President to Brunswick, he said last week about the President and the legislation: "I'm glad that he is moving immigration along. I think it's important legislation and I appreciate his leadership on it."
Kingston, as did Sen. Johnny Isakson, said he had another commitment and would not attend. Only Sen. Saxby Chambliss will accompany the President to Brunswick.
Both Isakson and Chambliss participated with a bipartisan group that shaped a compromise on the immigration bill being considered in the U.S. Senate.
