Bush Lobbies G.O.P. Senators on Immigration
By CARL HULSE and JEFF ZELENY

"We've got to convince the American people that this bill is the best way to enforce our border," Mr. Bush said...

Bush said, adding "the time is now to move a comprehensive piece of legislation."

Senator Mel Martinez, chairman of the RNC, said the new focus on security measures was intended as "a confidence-building measure" to shore up support among Republicans....

"I don't think he changed any minds...," Mr. Martinez said.
