President Bush's address on immigration reform Monday night has sparked debate around the country and here in Eastern Carolina. We spoke to Maria Gachuz, a Washington woman, who just obtained citizenship in the U.S. last year. Gachuz says even with a work visa it took her about 10 years to become a legal citizen.

She opposes Bush's plan to put National Guard troops on the Mexican border. Bush's proposal calls for 6000 National Guard troops.
