YUMA, Ariz. - President Bush visited the U.S.-Mexico border Monday to tout a guest-worker program for immigrants, pursuing a key domestic policy goal despite chilly relations with Congress.

The trip, a bookend to the visit that Bush made to the same Southwest desert city last May, comes as tension rises over a new immigration proposal tied to the White House. Bush's team is privately working hard to rally votes for what the president calls comprehensive reform - a mix of get-tough security with promises of fair treatment for undocumented residents.
