ROME (Reuters) - Italy declared a nationwide state of emergency over the arrival of immigrants on Friday as Silvio Berlusconi's right-wing government pushes forward with its crackdown on illegal immigration.

Parliament said in a statement that the state of emergency which gives police and local authorities additional powers to tackle the influx, was extended to the entire country to combat the "persistent and exceptional" arrival of illegal immigrants. It did not give further details.

How in the hell did Obama get all of those Mexicans on the plane with him?

Hispanic Spain is coming down hard on illegals as well---------to the point that Madrid is asking France, Germany, etc. for additional help in dealing with the invasion.

What do you mean by Hispanic Spain is coming down on illegals? Shouldn't countries like France be asking for help themselves?
