Immigrants rush to beat deadline
NEW YORK (AP) — Illegal immigrants across the country turned out in extraordinary numbers and stood in line for hours, trying to beat Monday’s deadline for applying for legal residency under a new federal law.

Nation could face energy woes
TORONTO (AP) —Vice President Dick Cheney warned on Monday that the whole nation could face California-style blackouts as he outlined a national energy strategy relying heavily on oil, natural gas and nuclear power development — but not conservation.
In his first extensive remarks about the energy recommendations his Cabinet-level task force will make, Cheney
blamed current shortages on shortsighted decisions in the past. Saving the specifics for Bush to review and announce, Cheney promised “a mix of new legislation, some executive action as well as private initiatives” to cope with rising energy prices and growing demand.
Bush favors cuts in nuclear arms
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Bush favors deep cuts in U.S. nuclear weapons to persuade Russia and others that missile defense, not
offense, is the way to deal with the most dangerous threats of the 21st century.
Bush is scheduled to outline his approach to nuclear offense and defense in a speech Tuesday at the National Defense University, exactly eight months after then-President Clinton announced he would not move ahead with deploying a national missile defense. Bush has often said he would like to reduce the nuclear arsenal to the lowest level possible while still maintaining enough weaponry to deter an aggressor.
