President Bush speaks at the dedication of the Victims of Communism Memorial in Washington, D.C., today ahead of meeting with Senate Republicans on the stalled immigration bill. Behind Bush is a statue of the goddess of democracy.

From staff and wire reports

WASHINGTON ­ President Bush, following a rare Capitol Hill meeting on Tuesday to lobby Senate Republicans for support of an immigration bill, acknowledged that it will take a "lot of hard work" to get the controversial measure through Congress.

He said the closed-door meeting underscored the sharp divisions within his party over the issue.

"Some in there believe that we need to move a comprehensive bill, some don't. I understand that," Bush told reporters in brief remark at the U.S. Capitol after the meeting. "Without the bill it's going to be harder to enforce the border. The status quo is unacceptable."

He said it was "going to take a lot of hard work, a lot of effort" to get it passed, but that "now's the time to get it done."

The complicated measure, largely supported by Democrats, would legalize up to 12 million unlawful immigrants and tighten border security.

Before lunch with the Senate GOP membership, Bush met with top Senate Republican leaders. He was joined by Vice President Cheney, presidential adviser Karl Rove and White House chief of staff Josh Bolten.

It's unclear, though, how much influence Bush has among Republicans on immigration, given that it has sparked a backlash among some of the party's core supporters, who see it as amnesty for people who sneaked into the country.

But the White House is hopeful that if opponents get a chance to voice their objections for the record, and introduce amendments, they will eventually allow the bill to pass.

"We seem to be getting some signals out of the majority leader that he'll go ahead and make that debate possible, and therefore we feel pretty confident we're going to get passage," said White House spokesman Tony Snow said.
