CNN interview:

May 19, 2010 Quote:

"WOFF BLITZER: So if people want to come from Guatemala or Honduras or El Salvador or Nicaragua, they want to just come into Mexico, they can just walk in?

CALDERON: No. They need to fulfill a form. They need to establish their right name. We analyze if they have not a criminal precedent. And they coming into Mexico. Actually...

BLITZER: Do Mexican police go around asking for papers of people they suspect are illegal immigrants?

CALDERON: Of course. Of course, in the border, we are asking the people, who are you?

And if they explain...

BLITZER: At the border, I understand, when they come in.

CALDERON: Yes.

BLITZER: But once they're in...

CALDERON: But not -- but not in -- if -- once they are inside the -- inside the country, what the Mexican police do is, of course, enforce the law. But by any means, immigration is a crime anymore in Mexico.

BLITZER: Immigration is not a crime, you're saying?

CALDERON: It's not a crime.

BLITZER: So in other words, if somebody sneaks in from Nicaragua or some other country in Central America, through the southern border of Mexico, they wind up in Mexico, they can go get a job...

CALDERON: No, no.

BLITZER: They can work.

CALDERON: If -- if somebody do that without permission, we send back -- we send back them.

BLITZER: You find them and you send them back?

CALDERON: Yes."

On the other hand, Calderon actually lets the press ask him questions. If Obama let our press ask him questions we might get to see more examples of grossly hypocritical farce like this.

Why didn't Wolf ask him if he thought it was wrong that we send back illegals we find here.

Stupid conversation. Totally stupid.

The American public isn't standing for this garbage anymore. The primaries are coming up soon in California and I know we're all voting to make sure we get strong representation this time around.

And in the eternal words of President George Bush.

"Fool me one, shame you...

Fool me twice, won't get fooled again"...

Exclamation Illegals are breaking the law, period!

Allowing illegals to stay in this country is a slap in the face to the immigrants who are here legally from europe, far east, etc.
