US President George W. Bush is ordering as many as 6,000 National Guard troops to increase law enforcement at the Mexican border, part of a $1.9 billion (€1.4 billion) drive to tighten security and win conservative backing in Congress for a broad election-year overhaul of the tattered US immigration laws. Senate has begun recently to work on legislation to strengthen border security, authorize new guest worker programs and give an eventual chance at citizenship to most of the estimated 12 million people already living illegally in the United States. On citizenship, the White House told congressional officials the president planned to say in a prime-time speech from the Oval office, that illegal immigrants, required to stand in line behind legal immigrants applying to become citizens, are not being granted amnesty.
