TRANSLATED FROM:

The president of Mexico will visit United States and he will present to the Mexican communities an active strategy for the defense of their rights.

Finally, after more than one year in office, the president of Mexico Felipe Calderon will travel for the first time to United States. He will come with a strategy that is proposed to actively defend the rights of the Mexicans in the United States.

From February 13 to the 15 he will visit New York, Los Angeles, Boston and Chicago. The agenda will be focused on meetings with immigrant leaders, to whom the president will present his strategy. Also it is expected that he will have meetings with U.S. legislators to analyze the possibilities of launching a new initiative for migratory reform. The visit of Calderon will occur four months after he canceled a tour to the U.S.. Back then, the suspension of the tour was decided after diverse nonconformities among common leaders regarding the insufficient activity of Mexico in the matters of migrants in U.S..

Exact location of his appearances will come later.

Calderon needs to stay in his own country and mind his own business. Calderon coming here advocating rights for criminals is disgusting and I hope America wakes up and sees it for what it is.

I just think, and hope, his deliberate and obvious attempt to make a splash here during an election year will bite him in the rear end.

Most Americans are sick of Mexico meddling in our affairs. I think this, in conjunction with the ad campaigns; will be more than enough to thoroughly inflame.
