Do you trust George W. Bush - do you?
Some progressives are saying that when it comes to immigration, they're willing to cast aside all the past lies, suspicion, and betrayals and have faith that Bush's deal will help immigrants and help workers.
"I don't usually have nice things to say about President Bush, but this deal tends to separate people who have courage of their convictions and political opportunists," said Frank Sharry of the National Immigration Forum in a teleconference Thursday. "This is one time where President Bush deserves a real salute for having the courage of his convictions."

My name is Bill Winter and I'm running for Congress against Tom Tancredo in Colorado's Congressional District Six.
I am a Colorado Native, a Littleton High School graduate, and a veteran of the Navy and the Marine Corps. I'm a lawyer, a teacher, a high school football coach, an orphan, and a kidney donor.
Forty two years ago I was born in Greeley, Colorado. My biological mother was single. She had six children already, but she only had custody of three of them. My biological father never even knew she was pregnant, or that I was even born. I was given up for adoption at birth and became an orphan.
I was born with a hole in my heart that required surgery. I didn't have that surgery until I was five or six years old. I say five or six because no one that I know really knows exactly how old I was. I wasn't adopted until after my surgery and I was lucky to be adopted at all. The vast majority of orphans with serious medical problems don't get adopted.
