Pretty much what I predicted

Derb sums up Dear Jorge’s speech:

Total blather, and insincere and dishonest to boot. Tried to give impression the govt. has been struggling with the issue for years. In fact they have done next to nothing. Elaborate schemes for new kinds of immigration categories (there are a dozen or more already!) and employee-verification schemes, when we all know the federal govt. couldn’t find its rear end with both hands. Complete gas. Nothing will come of this.

Well, nothing except Democratic victories in 2006 and 2008. Not exactly massive votes of confidence from many former Three Monkey Republicans here at National Review. As David Frum pointed out, this may be one of the few presidential speeches that result in lower poll ratings.

According to the Good Fraters, even Hugh Hewitt’s Three Monkey heart is breaking.
