Fortunately, the President stood up for us and defended our right to control the borders.

Didn't he?

Anyone who hasn’t gone back and listened to the internet broadcast (free, of course) of the first two hours of Mark Levin’s show Wednesday is really missing something. He sounds like he is about to erupt out of his chair over this very thing.

If we are divided? Did Mexico become a state recently?

God, this is truly sickening. A president from another country slams one of our states and our president stands beside him and agrees with him.

When is some reporter going to ask Felipe about his nation’s southern border?

I hate this country more and more each day. It’s time for a new one that starts at the Mason Dixon line and ends at the current southern (used to be) border.

I wonder if Mexican President Felipe Calderon has read the Arizona law? Does he know the difference between legal immigration and illegal immigration? Does he want the USA to institute the more stringent and less forgiving immigration laws of Mexico?

Dear President Calderon: if illegal immigration is such a positive thing, why is it only a misdemeanor in the US, but a FELONY in Mexico??

Obama, Calderon Blast Arizona Immigration Law During White House Visit Mexican President Felipe Calderon can hardly contain his revulsion and rage against Arizona’s SB 1070. He’s "deeply troubled" over a law he denounces as "discriminatory and racist," not to mention “a dire threat to the whole Hispanic-American population." This new Arizona law "opens the door to intolerance, hate, discrimination and abuse in law enforcement," sputters the Mexican President.

=====================================

Indeed, this “threat to Hispanics” and these “abuses in law enforcement," have been ongoing for years.

The Associated Press carried a story where a Maria Elena Gonzalez, reported how female migrants were “forced to strip by abusive Mexican police officers, supposedly to search them, but the purpose is to sexually abuse them." Jose Ramos, 18, reported “that extortion by Mexican border police occurs at every stop on their migratory route. Until migrants are left penniless and begging for food.”

According to AP: “Others said they had seen migrants beaten to death by Mexican police, their bodies left near the railway tracks to make it look as if they had fallen from a train.

"If you're carrying any money, the Mexican police take it from you," said Carlos Lopez. "Federal, state, local Mexican police--all of them shake you down. If you're on a bus, Mexican police pull you off and search your pockets, and if you have any money, the Mexican police keep it all and say, get out of here.” Mexican Police shake down motorists on bogus traffic stops so regularly it is like going through a toll - money paid right there on the spot or your car gets impounded.

All of the above “hate” and “abuses in law enforcement” as reported by the Associated Press, befell Central American migrants who enter Mexico. (Excerpt) Read more at townhall.com

============================================

Get outta my country, Calderon----we spit on you, your countrymen, and your ambitions to undermine US national security bu grabbing US Territory via Azatlan.

This man, Barack Hussein Obama, must be removed from office. He is like a plague upon our society. His unmitigated hatred for this country and the true Americans who love this country is very apparent. And for him to side with an outsider against AZ, a state who is part of the "UNITED STATES Of America", this is contemptible.

ENOUGH! Congress first in NoDEMber, and kick Hussein out in 2012.

Right. Just like we are also forcing them to come to Arizona.

There was an article a couple of days ago that quoted a Mexican gubmint official complaining about how many Mexicans are returning to Mexico since the economy has slowed here. They don't want their own citizens to return!

The southern border stays open because the drug money bribes are so lucrative to US politicians at all levels. Politicians say they will support securing the border but none actually do....and they won't until we get rid of them.

Evil politicians have been very effective in shifting "border security" into a Latino immigration issue. That cannot be resoved until the borders are secured. The public is being fooled. The Latinos are playing right into the trap, too.

Coming across those borders are Mexican hoardes who are sending one billion dollars a year back to Mexico. Mr. Calderone wants that piggy bank to continue. Without it, his nation falls apart. Heard that statistic last night on FOX.

“Obama’s not a President, he’s a Communist Punk, and the twerp from Mexico is no statesman.”

Either way, what has our country come to, where there is a large portion of the population that doesn’t even blink when the president trashes their next door neighbors, their parents, their wealthy uncles, or their son in Iraq? This list can go on forever it seems. Then this “president” invites foriegn leaders over to do more of the same. What right does he have? Where is the proof of his wisdom? I find it so sickening.

American politicians "cooperating" with the Mexican government on the "US-Mexican immigration issue" are either idiots or Quislings - and time is running out for the idiot excuse!

How can anyone claim "Calderon took the unusual step... of criticizing an American law while visiting the White House." The public record of Mexico's & Mexicans' attacks on American sovereignty has been obvious to anyone paying attention. In fact, the Mexican government has been waging a non-military war against the U.S., with territory as its aim and illegals as its army. Calderon is only the most recent of Mexico's leaders who's words prove this:

In 2007, Felipe Calderon, president of Mexico, denounced "unilateral measures taken by the U.S. Congress and government " against Mexicans illegally in the U.S. and declared: "Where there is a Mexican, there is Mexico."

In 2004, Vicente Fox, then president of Mexico, stated: "We are Mexicans that live in our territories and we are Mexicans that live in other territories. In reality, we are 120 million people that live together and are working together to construct a nation."

In 1998, Jose Pescador Osuna, then-consul general of Mexico, admitted: "We are practicing La Reconquista in California."

In 1997, Ernesto Zedillo, then president of Mexico, proclaimed: "I have proudly affirmed that the Mexican nation extends beyond the territory enclosed by its borders and that Mexican migrants are an important – a very important – part of it."

And the Mexican elites have indoctrinated the army of illegals it launches into our country with their "Reconquista" claims. (They have even provided with maps for their border infiltration.) According to a Zogby poll of Mexican citizens (LINK):

Do you agree or disagree that the territory of the U.S. Southwest rightfully belongs to Mexico? Agree: 58 percent Disagree: 28 percent <= * Not sure: 14 percent

Do you agree or disagree that Mexicans should have the right to enter the United States without U.S. permission? Agree: 57 percent Disagree: 35 percent <= * Not sure: 7 percent

*This means only 1/3 of Mexicans do NOT believe that the Mexican government should rule the U.S. Southwest and that Mexican should NOT enter as they please.

The only real question is how will Americans respond? Amnesty - no matter how it is dressed - is surrender!

Since the link shows it was part of a Zogby poll that included questions to American citizens, it was almost certainly taken in the U.S.. While, it does not say the particular city and neighborhood, or if by telephone, it does say “in Spanish.” That could locate it in countless places in the US were Spanish is their official language. And judging by how Mexicans in the US act at soccer games - anywhere in the US -with Mexican teams against American, that attitude has spread pretty widely.

"“If we are divided, we cannot overcome these problems.” Umm dude. You’re one country,we’re another. We are already divided."

NOTE TO CALDERON: WE'LL STILL BE DIVIDED IF YOUR FANTASY OF AZTLAN COMES TRUE.

Be glad we let you keep half the country 150 years ago. Be glad we cancelled your cash debt to America 150 years ago. Be glad we PAID you for the American land in millions of dollars (mid-1800's dollars) and then overpaid for the almost worthless land in southern Arizona. ¿WHAT? They didn't teach you that at the LaRaza/Mecha/Communist/Marxist/Chomsky class?

If there is any "reconqistadoring" to be done, it may be the US taking back the rest of Mexico that we won in the war.....the only thing is, we don't want it!

Aside from the obvious hypocrisy of Calderon's "do as I say, not as I do" philosophy on immigration I find it hard to believe that no one is picking up on the fact that Mexico is encouraging their citizens to leave Mexico....
