America Runs on Immigrants
Okay, so hereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s the deal. North Korea has fired seven test missiles, Iran is still trying to start its own nuclear program, Israel and Palestine are at each others throatsÃ¢â‚¬Â¦and President Bush is hanging out in a DunkinÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ Donuts in Alexandria, Virginia. Why? Because of the American Dream, thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s why.
The two owners of this very special DunkinÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ Donuts are Iranian-American brothers, their district manager is a Guatemalan-American woman and the store manager is Salvadorian-American.
ThatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s rightÃ¢â‚¬â€weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re talking immigration. Bush makes an example of the foursome mentioned above because they are living the American Dream. Apparently the Ã¢â‚¬ËœAmerican DreamÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ has morphed from an abstract vision of a white picket fence into something more realistic--$5.15 an hour at a chain breakfast joint.
At the end of the clip, you see the introduction to the next segmentÃ¢â‚¬â€Condoleeza Rice holding a press conference with Turkish foreign minister Abdullah Gul to discuss the unrest in the Middle East.
Well at least someone in the Bush administration is holding down the fort.
