Schwarzenegger says GOP is party to protect diversity, families
NEW YORK (CNN) -- First lady Laura Bush and Austrian-immigrant-cum-American-politician Arnold Schwarzenegger ended the second night of the Republican convention Tuesday with a litany of anecdotes designed to highlight family issues and portray the party as a "people of compassion."

"Everything I have -- my career, my success, my family -- I owe to America," said Schwarzenegger, who was elected California governor this year. "America gave me opportunities, and my immigrant dreams came true."

Sharing tales of meeting injured soldiers and eager schoolchildren, the two most-anticipated speakers of the night addressed issues they described as critical on the home front.
