Mel Martinez tells the Washington Times that he wants "Congress to pass an immigration bill this year that will include a guest-worker program with 'earned citizenship' requirements for illegal aliens… Asked what he would consider the ideal immigration bill, Mr. Martinez said he was working with Sen.
