WASHINGTON - Mexican President Felipe Calderon embarks Sunday on his first U.S. visit since the 2006 election, as some longtime observers here question the timing of his trip during the U.S. presidential campaign, which may only serve to make the issue of illegal immigration that much more prominent.
Arizona Republic article (broken link)

Be careful there; Calderon, any false move on your part will make things that much worse for your countrymen here-------in particular, the illegals from Mexico.

Yeah, I think he's going to be surprised at the amount of "resistance" to his presence he'll find along the way...

Every head-of-state has the perfect right to visit his constituents, wherever they live. Ten percent of Calderon's constituents live here. and he's coming by for a "chat". There may be a few legal issues here and there, but it's important for a President not to lose touch with the voters.....

I am sure he will be better received than President Bush anywhere else in the world.

Enlightenment on the scale of hatred. Hey we illegally start wars, they illegally work here, what's worse? I guess for the people here, it is them illegally working here.
