Calderon criticizes AZ law on the White House Lawn along with Obama

The hypocrisy here is that Calderon's own country's laws require the same kind of "profiling" and law enforcement of illegal immigrants as in Arizona to a severe degree. As quoted from another thread, Article 67 in Mexican Population law states: ""Authorities, whether federal, state or municipal ... are required to demand that foreigners prove their legal presence in the country, before attending to any issues."

The hypocrisy is astounding.

Obama, Calderon Blast Arizona Immigration Law During White House Visit

President Obama and Mexican President Felipe Calderon joined hands Wednesday in blasting Arizona's controversial immigration law, with Obama calling the legislation a "misdirected effort" after Calderon slammed it as discriminatory.

Obama, speaking next to Calderon during Wednesday's state visit, called the tough immigration law a "misdirected expression of frustration over our broken immigration system."

"We're examining any implications especially for civil rights because in the United States of America, no law abiding person -- be they an American citizen, illegal immigrant, or a visitor or tourist from Mexico -- should ever be subject to suspicion simply because of what they look like."

Obama said he has directed the Justice Department to review the law and said he expects to receive a final report soon.

Arizona's law, which takes effect in July, will make it a crime under state law to be in the U.S. illegally

At the start of Wednesday's White House visit, Calderon said the law discriminated against Mexicans and called for the two countries to work together to develop an immigration policy that did not force people to live in the shadows "with such laws as the Arizona law, which is forcing our people to face discrimination."

Calderon, whose remarks were translated from Spanish, said "We can do so if we create a safer border -- a border that will unite us instead of dividing us.

"We are and will continue to be respectful of the internal policies of the United States and its legitimate right to establish, in accordance to its Constitution, whatever laws it approves," he said, "But we will retain our firm rejection to criminalized migration so that people that work and provide things to this nation would be treated as criminals."

Obama also stressed that he and Calderon had directed their governments to make the U.S.-Mexican border more secure and efficient.

"Illegal immigration is down, not up," Obama said, "And we will continue to do whatever is necessary to secure our shared border."

"Today I want every American to know my administration has devoted unprecedented resources in personnel and technology to securing our border," he added.

Almost twice as many people support the Arizona law as those who oppose it, according to an Associated Press-GfK poll this month. It found that 42 percent favored it, 24 percent opposed it and another 29 percent said they were neutral.

Obama has promised to start work on an immigration overhaul, but he's also warned that Congress may not have the appetite to take on the sensitive issue this year. He pointed out Wednesday that he can't get the 60 votes he would need in the Senate to pass an immigration bill unless some Republicans step forward. That Republican support could be hard to come by for Obama in an election year.

The two leaders spoke during a joint news conference in the White House Rose Garden following a private meeting. Obama will host Calderon at a state dinner Wednesday night.

Calderon needs to shut up.

He said today that the Arizona bill causes "our people to face discrimination."

Well if his people were in Mexico where they belonged and not here illegally...

Mr. Calderon,

How about we apply Mexican immigration laws to illegal immigrants in the USA. Yeah. Didn't think so.... so STFU!

--------------

“In brief, the Mexican Constitution states that:

* Immigrants and foreign visitors are banned from public political discourse.

* Immigrants and foreigners are denied certain basic property rights.

* Immigrants are denied equal employment rights.

* Immigrants and naturalized citizens will never be treated as real Mexican citizens.

* Immigrants and naturalized citizens are not to be trusted in public service.

* Immigrants and naturalized citizens may never become members of the clergy.

* Private citizens may make citizens arrests of lawbreakers (i.e., illegal immigrants) and hand them to the authorities.

* Immigrants may be expelled from Mexico for any reason and without due process."


"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies."

Arizona should repepal their STUPID, WORTHLESS law tomorrow.

Then, also tomorrow, they should pass a law imposing a $500,000 TAX on any business which exploits illegals by hiring them in violation of US labor laws. I am sure Obama and Calderon and LA would then be happy that the AZ legislature has done something to protect illegal aliens from being exploited for profit.

Why on earth do grown adults pass such stupid laws which only serve to rile up both sides with no result?

Pass a law shich completely eliminates any economic reason to hire illegals, for the protection of the illegals and to assure compliance with our labor, wage and hour, and workplace safety laws. Who can complain about that? Will LA boycott because AZ requires employers to pay minimum wage to everyone? Will Calderon complain because now Coyotes won't be smuggling his citizens into the US as human cargo to be sold to the lowest bidder? Will Obama complain that AZ is prtectng workers by making sure safety laws are enforced on worksites?

Stop this STUPID posturing and pass ONE law that will solve the problem.

Not a bad idea. How about both of them part of the same law? Kill two birds with one stone?

Well if his people were in Mexico where they belonged and not here illegally...

Then maybe he should suggest that his people should return to their homeland. If they are citizens, then they are our people and should be treated with the utmost regard for doing it the right way.

:thumbs:

You're awfully naive if you believe that there is one law that would solve this problem.

No, one law won't do it, but punishing those who employ illegal immigrants severely and requiring everify for all employment in the U.S. is a good start.

The law must also seize property used to hire illegals,IE your vehicle if transporting and your home if you are employing illegals. Just like drug runners!!
