April 13, 2007, President Bush Speaks at the National Catholic Prayer Breakfast

“Of the 56 men who signed our Declaration of Independence, only one was a Catholic— Charles Carroll. In 1776, Carroll was one of the wealthiest men in America. But because he was a Catholic, he could not vote or hold public office in his native Maryland. John Adams noted that Carroll's wealth and patriotism marked him for special vengeance if the Revolution were to fail.”

Near the end of his speech, he said:
“Finally, to realize the promise of America, we must have comprehensive immigration reform that enforces our laws and upholds the dignity of every single person in the United States. And now is the time for the United States Congress to get a bill to my desk that I can sign.”
