Schneider: Could Bush 'triangulate' on immigration?
President Bush favors a path to citizenship. "People who meet a reasonable number of conditions and pay a penalty of time and money should be able to apply for citizenship," he said.
The Democrats running for president tend to agree with Bush. "Everybody who lives within those borders has a right to a life that is full of opportunity," Sen. Barack Obama said.
But Republican candidates are split down the middle. Mitt Romney, Rep. Duncan Hunter, Rep. Ron Paul, Jim Gilmore and Rep. Tom Tancredo all oppose a path to citizenship.
