Chiding Arizona while Mexico's Laws are More Strict!
Mexico President Felipe Calderons chastisement of Arizona immigration laws during his White House visit was the pinnacle of hypocrisy. So reported CleanTV News today. Why? Because Mexicos immigration laws are far stricter than those adopted by Arizona, with up to 10 year prison sentences for undocumented Americans living in Mexico!
And as for uniting, CleanTV opines that we are two separate nations and the citizens of the United States clearly dont want to unite with Mexico.
The CleanTV news anchor indignantly declared, Calderons call from The White House lawn for the US to unite with Mexico, and the ridiculous statement made by Calderon that, We are not defined by borders, shows he doesnt really get it. U.S. citizens do NOT want to merge with Mexico. Of course we are defined by borders. That is what makes us a sovereign nation!...

We send back them!
We don need no stinkin Mexicans.
Kyl or someone from a border state should bring a bill to the Senate or House that is word for word Mexico’s immigration policy. This point is critical to the debate.
GO HOME NUMBNUTS!....
Didn't nObama offer Calderon asylum? Or at least, a "path to citizenship".
AMEN!! How I wish someone, anyone on our side had the gonads to do just that.
Mexico’s own citizens are required to carry proof of citizenship.
He doesn’t consider the US a soveriegn country, just territory to colonize.
I’d like to see someone in congress propose a bill immediately that exactly mirrors mexican immigration laws and expose calderon and all the liberals for the hypocritical pigs they are.
Instead of coming here and slandering our nation, go back home and figure out what is causing millions of your citizens to flee it.
Calderon has a lot of gall to come up here and tell us what we should do in OUR COUNTRY!
The interpreter stated that he used the work “migration” from Mexico versus immigration. I not sure if that’s true, but I do wonder if he looks at crossing our border as simply migration from Mexico - likes it’s a natural thing to do, sort like birds.
It’s jerks like you that give FR and conservatives a bad name.
Your racist comment is totally out of line.
This debate is about controlling our borders, ending illegal immigration, and the hypocrisy of the Mexican government.
The Mexican people are oppressed by corruption and criminals. I can only hope that the Mexican people arm themselves and take on the crooks when they have had enough.
The only Mexican immigrants I know came here legally and are some of the BEST American citizens I know.
Good for you and your Mexican friends.
In my state over 22 hospitals have been forced into bankruptcy due to too much “charity” work. Guess who those “charity” cases are?
So, since you seem to be so generous, why don’t you place a big “Welcome Illegals” on your front door?
And by the way, most Freepers do not want them here. Maybe you’re a librobot spy.
According to the Border Patrol the public is being mislead as to WHO is coming into the US from Mexico.
This is the truth as reported by WSBTV in Atlanta today.
I have been on FR since ‘95 or ‘96; it’s been so long I cannot remember. During that period I have contributed what I can to The Conservative Cause. See my extensive posting history.
You are confusing illegal immigrants with Mexican-American citizens who followed our laws.
As for charity, I will be happy to contribute arms and ammo to any Mexican citizen who wants to fight for their freedom and overthrow their corrupt government.
Maybe I am a little sensitive about racism. When I was young I was targeted for death by Democrats in Texas because I spoke up for the civil rights of black people.
Are you sure that YOU are not a DU infiltraitor sent here to discredit FR?
First off, the remark was not racist. It’s a classic line from an old movie most of us know about. I just changed it a bit, so chill out, or maybe you don’t have a sense of humor.
I’m an American taxpayer since 1964, and I’ve paid a pile of money to help support this country, among other sacrifices.
When I hear of illegal’s coming into this country and demanding benefits and rights, and education off of the American taxpayers back, it really pisses me off.
I don’t have anything against Mexicans personally, just don’t try and claim my country, come here legally, and pay your fair share.
If you’ve never seen illegals, you must live in some place they haven’t found yet. Not too many of them left.
Of course, I recognized the Bogart reference. However, I think we have a duty to NEVER give the commies a reason to scream “Racism”.
I DO have a soft spot in my heart for Mexicans.
ALL of my employees at my manufacturing company are Mexicans with green cards or Mexican Americans. My company could not run without them. I have tried hiring Anglos and struck out every time. Apparently, most Anglos think they are too good for hard, dirty factory work while such work is considered manly in the Mexican culture.
You and I agree on the issue at hand: Close the borders, enforce the laws, and deport those who are here illegally.
You and I will also probably agree that Calderon is a hypocrite, MECHA and the other Aztlan groups are racist commies, and immigrants from other countries have just as much right to compete for legal immigration slots as Mexicans.
