Immigration reform will get another high-profile backer Wednesday: George W. Bush is expected to talk about how good it will be for America, the Dallas Morning News reports. The former president is giving the opening remarks at a citizenship ceremony at his presidential center in Dallas, followed by a panel discussion called "What Immigrants Contribute." It's not clear whether he'll discuss the actual immigration bill Congress is debating, but W's institute has already backed other measures for immigration overhauls. (More George W. Bush stories.)
