PKG SCRIPT
v/o#1: with herald trumpeters playing a salute, Vicente Fox began the

first state visit of the Bush presidency.

SOT BUSH (arrival ceremony) 021 this is a recognitiion that US has no

more important relationship in the world than the one we have with mexico 07

v/o#2: it had been the president's hope to present Fox with a new U.S.

policy on immigration - one that would address the issue of the millions of undocumented Mexican workers in the U.S.
but the problem proved too complex and politically sensitive.
yet pres. fox made clear he wants to keep trying - and he wants it done by the end of the year.

SOT PRES. VICENTE FOX OF MEXICO (lay interpretor over fox) . to make

sure that there are no Mexicans who have not entered this country legally in the united states - and that those Mexicans who have come into the country do so with the proper documents.

v/o#3: it took some at the white house by surprise - though one top

official said it should not have.

SOT CONDOLEEZA RICE, NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISOR: 023 did we clear our

remarks and did he clear his - no. But I'm telling you that we knew that this was an objective of president fox's. 08

v/o#4: Rice says it would be terrific if an agreement could be reached

by year's end - but the administration believes it needs to be done right - not just quickly.

SOT RICE 010 (in response to 4th question): The very thought that you

have a Mexican president and a president of the united states sitting down to systematically talk about migration and how to deal with this issue is a breakthrough in and of itself. 10

v/o#5: at the state dinner last night - the leaders spoke with

confidence that their two nations can overcome any problems.

SOT BUSH 011 a long border lies between us, but does not divide us.



SOT FOX (state dinner)(speaks English) that we are going to build a

future, that we are going to come up with answers to migration
v/o close: later today the two leaders will renew their commitment to reaching an agreement on immigration. then mr. bush will take his guest to Toledo, Ohio - to visit there with some Hispanic-Americans - a group with whom mr. bush has been trying to enhance his political standing. mk, cbsn, the wht hs.

Meanwhile, the state's most experienced shark expert speaks out about the attack that killed 10-year-old David Peltier at Virginia Beach last weekend.
Jack A- Musick, who is a marine biologist at the Virginia Institute of Marine Science, says the shark was a bull shark that probably meant to eat the boy. Musick says he bases his conclusion on autopsy photos and detailed interviews with the boy's father and brothers, who witnessed the attack. Officials initially said Peltier was probably attacked by a sandbar shark that was looking for fish.
