Republican Party Officially Endorses Guest Worker Program

In late January, the Republican Party officially endorsed a Guest Worker Program to provide a means for a higher amount of foreigners to temporarily work legally in the U.S. This is good news for advocates of the Guest Worker Program; if the Republican National Committee had not supported this legislative measure backed by President Bush, the program would not have any chance for success.

Republican representatives, responding to an LA Times interview, stated that taking any hard-lined positional against immigrants would largely alienate the Latino vote, which was quite supportive of Bush and Republican candidates in the 2004 election.

Hopefully, the Republicans’ interest in promoting strong relationships and ties with the U.S.-based Latino population will ensure the Guest Worker Program becomes law in the near future.
