We could say we "hired him on to do the Chief-Executiizin' that AMERICANS won't do...at least, not at the goin' wage"....
That's almost tragically funny in a twisted kind of way........

It's a way one street and America gets screwed again.

I have been to Mexico and can tell you they dont want Americans there, they expect you to speak their langauge and you had better walk the line or you will be locked up.
All they want from us is our tourist money and for us to feed and take care of their low lifers.

I would like to see one of the candidates step up and ask him NOT to come to our country, that person would rise to the top real quick for taking the stand that we are all looking for.

Illegal aliens should have rights.

They should have the right to be deported. They should have the right to have their assets seized. They should have the right to go to jail for stealing an ID or committing social security fraud.....

We have state legislators from Mexico coming to OUR country challenging laws that are passed here, next we have the president of Mexico coming with a proposed strategy to defend the mexicans in OUR country. We do not hear one peep out of Washington about this....what the hell is up with that? Does anybody besides me smell a snake in the wood pile here?

This is telling the tax paying people of this country," we want what's best for our mexicans in your country... illegals and all, if you don't like it ********* ". How much longer are we going to put up with BS like this from Mexico and our gov't as well.

I did write a letter to the Mexican Embassy, and let me tell you folks...what I said to these people wasn't nice. There should be a national protest over crap like this happening.

You perfectly fit the criteria for someone who would make this statement.

Last insult and threat Calderon made I heard was of the failed amnesty bill, "You are making a grave error", and he was speaking to our government, not to our citizens.

The lack of character and lack of respect coming from Mexican officials there and even in our own government shows what they are made of from the top all the way down, and so does Mexico's long record.

We'd better be aware that this type of thinking cannot be changed.

Many of the good Mexicans are still in Mexico and don't expect anything of the U.S., whether rich or poor.
