Here's a video of the Mexican President, Felipe Calderon, addressing the U.S. Congress and condemning the Arizona immigration law (which, btw, is the same as federal immigration law). Take notice of the reaction of our Congresspersons. See who gives Calderon a standing ovation and who doesn't.
Yes, that was the Democrats applauding and giving Calderon a standing ovation, in support of illegality. Unbelievable.
Let's be clear. The problem of illegal immigrants flooding across the border from Mexico into the United States is MEXICO'S PROBLEM. The illegals are jumping our borders to escape MEXICO'S PROBLEMS. The escalating drug wars along the Mexican border is a crime problem IN MEXICO. It is spilling over into our country. 90% of the illegal drugs coming into our country are coming from MEXICO.
Yet, here is the Mexican President blaming the United States for attempting to deal with result of MEXICO'S PROBLEMS. I repeat, unbelievable. Calderon should look at the beam in his own eye before he complains about the mote in ours.
And the Blame America First crowd, aka, the Democrats, buy right into this misdirection. Even the President of the United States, Barack Jose Obama, agrees. Our own President offers no pushback, no defense of his own country. The President also offers no direction and no leadership to counter the divisive Boycott Arizona movement taking place in California. You don't hear Obama calling the Boycott Arizona movement "misguided," as he has called the Arizona immigration law. No sir.
If we are going to boycott anyone, how about we boycott Mexico until that country steps up to deal with it's own problems, instead of Mexico exporting it's problems to the USA in the form of illegal immigrants and gang turf wars over illegal drugs ? Have we become so immersed in simple-minded political correctness that we can't even speak the truth any longer ? It seems so.
To further illustrate the hypocrisy of the Mexican President, let's take a look at Mexico's immigration laws. From Fox News:
Mexico repeatedly has been cited by human rights groups for abusing or turning a blind eye to the abuse of migrants from Central America. Until recently, Mexican law made illegal immigration a criminal offense -- anyone arrested for the violation could be fined, imprisoned for up to two years and deported. Mexican lawmakers changed that in 2008 to make illegal immigration a civil violation like it is in the United States, but their law still reads an awful lot like Arizona's.
[Calderon's] comments [to Congress] came just weeks after Amnesty International issued a report claiming illegal immigrants in Mexico -- typically from Central America -- face abuse, rape and kidnappings, and that Mexican police do little to stop it. When illegal immigration was a criminal offense in Mexico, officials were known to seek bribes from suspects to keep them out of jail.
And Mexico is lecturing us ???? I don't think so, even if our Apologizer-In-Chief and his fellow Congressional weaklings see fit to applaud it.
Viva le Estados Unidos.
