Hmm.

So he's the head of a society that's such a nightmare that millions of people want to leave it. What's his solution? To create a society that isn't so screwed up?

Nah.

His solution is to whine that his neighbors don't want millions of his non-English speaking, poorly educated, law breaking low skilled, job stealing countrymen here.

Suck it, Calderon. If your fellow countrymen don't like America the feeling is quite mutual among many Americans. We're not your hospital, old age home, employment safety valve or school. Stop breaking into our country without permission and whining that we have the nerve to ask you to leave.

If you want our respect then create a society worthy of one.

I would hope that Mr. Calderon in the future chooses
his words more carefully

After decades of sending billions for economic and drug
related efforts the Mexican accountability and results
are far from anything to brag about

And Mr. Calderon, No country in the world can allow unlimited immigration. If America opened its borders to all those who wish to live here, hundreds of millions of people would come here. That would, of course, mean the end of the United States economically and culturally.

Americans have been very generous, but you can't be generous with people who hate this country and want to milk the system by entering illegally.

Any U.S. politician that falls for Calderon's words should be ashamed. He is obviously using his words to try to convince some moving forward with immigration reform to benefit "his people." We (the USA) have the upper-hand here, we do not need to worry too much about Mexican national's anti-American feeling. Mexico is a serious trade-partner for us, that's for sure, so the relationship SHOULD always try to be stabilized, but this illegal immigration issue should not be bundled up into our trade relations.

We are not trading PEOPLE with Mexico ... the slave trade ended a long time ago.

The U.S. government continues to entertain Mexican politicians and Calderon. It's very insulting to the U.S. people to keep letting someone such as himself into our politician chambers while he continues to basically make threats and outwardly and boldly make negative statements about how we are handling things.

I MEAN ... has anyone EVER heard him take RESPONSIBILITY for what is causing his own natives and citizens to come here? Have we EVER heard him say anything that would suggest Mexico assisting in the removal of illegal Mexican immigrants from the U.S.? How can U.S. politicians not see this?

Ive just about had it with this arrogant prick. He does nothing but lie to our faces and then stab us in the back as soon as we turn around. I can't wait to see him and Mexico get whats coming to them.

If he wants a war, than I say we give him one. One that will make his entire country a puppet state of the United States.

Too bad but for some reason the anti-American feelings of the Mexicans never stops them from coming over to give birth here and accept their welfare handouts here or even to work here.

I wish they'd get so anti-American that they'd all get in a huff and leave and get some real Mexican pride and go back and build their country up.

That would require effort and integrity. Fat chance in Mexico.

It's not the latino way to take responsibility for your country's problems. Using Americans as a scapegoat for their problems is a popular past-time in Latin American politics
