Get a load of Mexico's President Calderon:
Mexico's President Calderon to speak on immigration in Dallas | Dallas Morning News | News for Dallas, Texas | Mexico News (http://www.dallasnews.com/sharedcontent/dws/news/world/mexico/stories/041708dnmetcalderon.317260a.html - broken link)

This man thinks he can storm into Texas like he is the president ofthe US, and give briefings as if he has any authority.

And he refers to the people who live in Texas (hispanics) as 'his' Mexican citizens. They left his country, why the heck are they "his" citizens? And is it his place to criticize cities like Farmers Branch who have made life more difficult for illegals? No, its not his country, and he has no right to tell us how to run our country. He needs to take his illegal citizens back, and not force them upon us. Would he feel the same way if a mass of illegal immigrants went to Mexico from here and failed to pay taxes, burned the Mexican flag, showed blatant disregard for Mexican laws and citizens, and leeched off residents there? I doubt it.

This is getting ridiculous when other governments think they have ANY authority over how we run this country becuase they dont. I dont see Bush parading through Mexico, so Calderon needs to stay in Mexico where he belongs.

And why does he exactly think Americans are becoming extremely hostile of the Hispanic race? That is just a downright lie. We are hostile of leeching illegal aliens. He needs to get over himself and realize that this isnt HIS country, and if we arent willing to accept illegal aliens, then that is our perogative. He doesnt pay taxes to the American government, nor do his citizens......we do, and we have all the say on how this government will be run.

I think he's got it backwards.

Mexico is running scared IMHO; that country is petrified of being flooded by their citizens as they self deport from the USA due to our toughening laws.

So why the hell would we listen to a man who is running one of the most backwards countries in the world? It is beyond me, but unfortunately our government does.

The problem is -- Calderon doesn't want these people ever returning to Mexico. I don't think we've ever seen a government so intent on ridding itself of it's people. Even Castro saw the need in keeping his citizens -- even against their wills, and the Berlin wall was built to keep people in because their government knew it's citizens were important to keep but the Mexican government is very overly involved in emigration as it's best solution for everything.

They could make life better for these people in their own country but that's the last thing they want to do because then they wouldn't be leaving.

That country has so many possibilities, it really is a shame. It has a lot of citizsens willing to do hard labor....something most countries dont have. They need to capitalize on what they can do.....farm, manufacturing, anything. They just cant stay behind and expect other countries to take their citizens in.

Calderon has this incredible arrogance because it is allowed, and more than likely encouraged, by his good amigo buddy and our traitorous El Presidente Jorge.

You know why does this? Because our fearless leader Bush lays on his back like a dog and piddles whenever Mexico comes a callin'.
Sadly, the top three contenders of the presidency will likely do the same thing. Its ridiculous, and infuriating

But I do agree with malamute, he is scared to death of Mexicos 'undesirables' coming home with the new found expectations of food stamps, health care, education, and housing all paid for by the rich of Mexico. Imagine the Revolution that would cause

All Democrats do the same thing. Its almost like they dont know who they are representing, Mexico or America.

That's because they are his friends and 3 generations of Bush family members owe them and its time to Senor Boosh to pay up :

El Andar: Los Amigos de Bush

Now compare those players to these:

MATT Corp - Board of Directors
