MONTERREY, Mexico (AP) -- The U.S. Congress' new immigration plan was bad news for tens of thousands of poor Mexicans who depend on a U.S. guest worker program for temporary jobs in agriculture and other seasonal work, such as landscaping and construction.

Millions of would-be migrants have been holding tight to President Bush's promise that they could one day apply for temporary visas to get a glimpse of the American dream.

At the U.S. Consulate in Monterrey, which hands out more temporary visas than any other consulate or embassy in the world, Edmundo Bermudez, a 36-year-old from the northern city of Durango, said the plan rewards those who have already entered the United States illegally, while shutting out those who stayed home hoping to gain legal passage. (Watch how immigrants cheer, fear the new plan )

In the end, it doesn't matter if the proposal actually becomes law or not. More illegals will come. Millions of them. No matter what.
