Now as I understand it what the temporary worker visa will accomplish is as follows.
1) make it easier to crack down on companes hiring illegal workers
2) force those with temp visa to pay taxes thus creating a source of revenue for the gov while at the same time helping to plug the drain in our economy.
3) reduce the need for those comming to america for legitimate reasons to sneak across the border thus reducing the workload of the border cops thereby makng it easier for them to catch those who do try to enter illegally.
4) removes sympathy for the illegal immigrants who do sneak across thereby making it easier to seek and recieve heavier penalties for those who do
5) reduce the wage gap between citizens and illegals thereby motivating companies to hire more americans (afterall if you have to pay both the same and give both the same benefits then most companies would choose to hire americans)
6) with less illegal traffic across the borders it makes it easier to secure the borders therby reducing the chances of a terrorist to slip through
At least thats my interpertation.

In the state of the union address, Bush talked about a guest worker program for Mexicans to take jobs that Americans dont want to do. Therefore as much as you'd like to blame your government, this is probably your own collective fault.
Eight Steps To Destroy America
We all know Dick Lamm as the former Governor of Colorado. In that context, his thoughts are particularly poignant.
Last week there was an immigration-overpopulation conference in Washington, DC, filled to capacity by many of American's finest minds and leaders. A brilliant college professor named Victor Hansen Davis talked about his latest book, Mexifornia, explaining how immigration - both legal and illegal - was destroying the entire state of California. He said it would march across the country until it destroyed all vestiges of The American Dream.
Moments later, former Colorado Governor Richard D. Lamm stood up and gave a stunning speech on how to destroy America. The audience sat spellbound as he described eight methods for the destruction of the United States. He said, "If you believe that America is too smug, too self-satisfied, too rich, then let's destroy America. It is not that hard to do. No nation in history has survived the ravages of time.
Arnold Toynbee observed that all great civilizations rise and fall and that 'An autopsy of history would show that all great nations commit suicide.'"
The Coming Break Up
Of America - Part 1
By Frosty Wooldridge
America faces the most critical juncture in its 229 year history. Indolent Americans sit on their Lazy Boy recliners wielding a remote while their country fractures before their eyes. It's been slow for the past 30 years, but it's quickening in every sector of our country. Have you noticed more and more people speaking different languages at the supermarket? Schools? Movies? At your local bank? Have you noticed radio stations and TV crackling with Spanish or other languages in our English speaking America? Have you seen more people disrespecting the singing of our national anthem? Have you noticed our laws being broken such as red lights being run or people fleeing accident scenes where they were the cause? Have you noticed more trash in your state and national parks, especially in California, Arizona, Texas and Georgia? Have you noticed more flags being flown from other countries instead of Old Glory? Did you know that more Mexican flags fly from houses, cars and establishments in California more than the Stars and Stripes? Have you noticed what has happened to the Golden State? Texas? Arizona? How about Georgia or Miami, Florida? Have you ever been incredulous about hearing something that sounded so preposterous that it "couldn't be true?"
Take a second look. You are watching the "Coming Breakup of America." That's right. Your country. It is moving methodically, perversely, steadily and provocatively across our land. Our Congress and president aid it at the highest levels. It is a nation-destroying experiment being forced on Americans that will prove more disastrous than 9/11.
America's Destruction By Design
Why Bush And Congress Dismantle America By Arrangement
By Frosty Wooldridge
With 80 percent of the American public screaming for our president and Congress to secure our borders and stop illegal migration, why do you think President Bush and this Congress aren't listening?
Short answer: They promote a different agenda against the wishes of American citizens. Since we voted the SAME Congress and president back into office, they carry out their mission: destruction of our Constitution by arrangement.
A Progressive Indictment: Immigration Policy and Corporate Welfare
[Recently by Randall Burns: The Jobs Crunch: A Progressive Indictment Of Immigration—And Both Parties]
[Vdare.com note: Randall Burns is a self-described “progressive,” which proves once again that Vdare.com values diversity—or, more importantly, it proves that immigration affects everyone. The case against it is as good from the political left, as from the right.]
By Randall Burns
There is a fundamental contradiction between advocating open borders and claiming to favor containment of corporate power and the defense of New Deal reforms. It is high time American progressives examined this issue seriously.
Conservatives often point out the fundamental contradiction between the existence of a Social Welfare State and mass immigration.
But the reality is much more serious: United States immigration policy is a key part of a Corporate Welfare State. Immigration policy helps protect established interests from democratic control—and from market competition.
Each of us follows in the footsteps of Thomas Jefferson, Lincoln, Madison, Franklin, Washington, Susan B. Anthony, Ike, Dr. Martin Luther King, Eleanor Roosevelt or any American who cared about the future of our country. The hour is late, however, the hour is not up. The time to take action is now. I urge you to declare yourself an American citizen who inherited the same responsibilities that Jefferson or any foot soldier from Valley Forge all the way to the jungles of Vietnam and Iraq. Most people don't realize it, however, it's growing into a huge crisis for our country. We've got over 15 million illegal aliens in this country with around another 3 million pouring over our borders each year in addition to the 1.3 million who come in legally. We're headed for an added 250 million Americans in 50 years which will leave us struggling with an unsustainable society. Our kids are going to inherit a mess.
At the same time, we must be compassionate, yet, we must ensure our nation's viability so we can help the Third World out of its population crisis.
