President Obama met with Mexican President-elect Enrique Peña Nieto at the White House on Tuesday; looks like the sit-down amounted to pretty much what you’d expect:
In his first meeting in the Oval Office with Peña Nieto, which comes on the heels of the election in Mexico, Obama said he would be “sharing” ideas with his Mexican counterpart. Peña Nieto signaled that he would be in support of such a plan.
“We fully support your proposal,” Peña Nieto said, speaking through a translator. “We want to contribute. We want to be part of this.”
Obama, who was joined in the Oval Office by Vice President Biden and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, signaled a strong bond with Mexico, saying that what happens in the neighboring country “has an impact on our society.” He commended outgoing Mexican President Felipe Calderón, for establishing an “excellent working relationship” with the U.S., and said he wanted to continue the “close personal and professional relationship” with Mexico.
One needn’t pause to wonder why Mexico would indeed care to be involved in the immigration-reform process, especially now that a wider immigration discussion is increasingly likely to go down in the wake of the GOP’s election defeat and all of the subsequent ‘soul-searching’ going on. Obama said ahead of the election that the “biggest failure” of his first term was not doing more on immigration reform when he had the unfettered opportunity during his first two years, but now that a few Republicans are making moves, he’ll have his big chance to demonstrate that he’s the great uniter he’s always told us he is — and as much as I think some Democrats won’t want to give credence to Republicans’ proposals, the chance to maybe accomplish something big on a more bipartisan basis has its appeal, too.
Anyhow, Nieto is our new neighbor to the south; here he is on CNN breaking down immigration, Fast & Furious, drug legalization, and etcetera, via the WFB:
So is the new presidente of Mexico going to tear down its border fence with Guatemala or not . . . ?
When is the treatment of American citizens in Mexico and their rights vs US treatment of Mexicans going to be an issue when we discuss amnesty ?
Ever hear of reciprocal aggrements ? These are arranged to protect the rights of American citizens working or living in other countries.
Why is it when it comes to citizens of other countries we are required to offer them the same privledges as we do to US citizens? But when it comes to US citizens who get in trouble or attempt to do business in other countries they do not get the same treatment their citizens get.
Americans cant own coast land in Mexico. And get no title to it elsewhere. If they run out of cash theyll get unceremoniously sent back or put in jail untill some relative comes up with the fresh. Thats just for starters as for granting them voting privledges yea lets give Mexican citizens that right when American citizens vote in their elections .
Isn't that special?
We will give you our poor, our tired our hungry. You take care of them. Suckers.
Of course you do Enrique. Dump your Fluken poverty on America. What a clown this Ahole is. We definitely need another War between Mexico and America and we need it now. How ‘bout a little payback for the Alamo?
What immigration plan would that be? I’ve never heard Obama explain any such plan.
Even Chuckie Schumer indicated last week that any such plans had to first secure the border.
Please, just go away and take care of your own. The border should be closed/enforced, so no more welcomes. Call your people back home, okay!

Mexicos president-elect has given the thumbs-up to President Barack Obamas plans to reform immigration laws.
We fully support your proposal, Enrique Peña Nieto said during a Tuesday meeting with Obama at the White House.
Peña Nieto is due to be inaugurated in Mexico City on Saturday. Vice President Joe Biden will attend.
We only send the vice president to inaugurations if your county is at the very top of the list, Obama told Peña Nieto. Obama said he would visit the country next year for the North American Leaders Summit. Any excuse to go to Mexico, he said. Im always game.
Mexico supports anything that will keep the borders.Mexico demands this country accommodate their illegals and at the same time, nothing chances in Mexico,the illegals will continue coming.
