BAD REVIEWS FOR BUSH’S IMMIGRATION SPEECH: Neal Boortz: “There was nothing in his speech we haven’t heard before, and his new immigration policy is just as contradictory as the old one. . . . I’m sure representatives of Al-Qaeda are preparing to apply for their guest-worker permits as we speak.”

Michelle Malkin is unhappy, too. And Joe Gandelman has a roundup of reactions.

UPDATE: Bush is charged with rewriting history on the Reagan Amnesty.

ANOTHER UPDATE: Prawfsblawg weighs in: “Yet liberal principles require a drastic reduction of immigration controls. Foreigners flock to our shores because there is demand for their labor. The same principle that supports free trade of goods and services — the law of comparative advantages — applies with equal force to freedom of movement.”

Responses here and here.
