Asked about Trump, Pena Nieto complained to the Excelsior newspaper about "these strident expressions that seek to propose very simple solutions" and said that sort of language has led to "very fateful scenes in the history of humanity." "That's the way Mussolini arrived and the way Hitler arrived," Pena Nieto sai

    Texas Gov. Rick Perry's deployment of National Guard troops on the U.S.-Mexican border is "reprehensible" and puts neighborly relations at risk, Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto said in an interview published on Friday. "Not only is it displeasing, but I think it's reprehensible," Pena Nieto told Mexican daily El Universal in an interview published on Friday. "It is an attack on good relations and neighborliness." Pena Nieto said Perry's decision contrasts starkly with other U.S. states, like California, which have embraced more immigrant-friendly policies. "The policy is completely unacceptable and it does not embody the spirit of cordiality and friendship...

According to the Los Angeles Times, while introducing Mexican President Enrique Peńa Nieto, who said America is "the other Mexico," Brown "spoke about the interwoven histories of Mexico and California."

    October 12 marks the 12th anniversary of the bombing of the USS Cole. The grim milestone comes as President Obama faces mounting questions about his administration's dereliction of duty during the murderous attack on our consulate in Benghazi, Libya. And it comes just a day after resurgent al-Qaida thugs pulled off the drive-by assassination of a top Yemeni security official who worked at the U.S. embassy in Sanaa. These are not "bumps in the road." These are gravesites on the blood-spattered path to surrender. Seventeen U.S. sailors died in the brutal suicide attack on the guided Navy missile destroyer as...

    ARLINGTON, Va. — After his son was killed in the attack on the USS Cole, Jesse Nieto put decals on his car that included “Islam=Terrorism” and “We Died, They Rejoiced.” But the Marine Corps deemed the decals offensive and told them he had to remove them or he could not park on federal installations. So he went to court, and won. Nieto works at North Carolina’s Camp Lejeune, which bans “extremist, indecent, sexist and racist” decals, court records say. But a federal judge ruled Wednesday that the base cannot ban anti-Islamic decals while allowing decals that say “Islam is Love”...
