Mexico treats Central Americans like they are animals and this idiot of a President wants to come to MY country and tell me how it should be? I have one American phrase for this idiot....****!
I wonder if the Mexicans treat Americans and Canadians there illegally differently than they treat Central Americans there illegally? I've heard that the military will spray Central Americans with tear gas and chase them down - do they do the same with illegals from the USA or Canada?

I wonder if they might be doing some racial profiling of their own.

Calderon's piece of crap country is just that . . . AND they have an extremely strict set of immigration guidelines.

Therefore, he is a hypocrite in expecting America to not enforce its own (albeit weak) policies, when HIS country would never do such a thing.

As the leader of Mexico, he actively encourages his citizens to cross the border and violate the law.

What if Obama went to Mexico and admonished them for their immigration laws and demanded that they change?

Calderon should NEVER have been allowed to speak before Congress. His appearance there was a disgrace, but the REAL disgrace was in OUR government not only allowing it, but giving him a standing ovation.

Mexico is a cesspool . . . and the scum from that cesspool is leaking into America minute by minute, day by day, year by year, and there will come a time when America is barely recognizable anymore . . .

This will be an even filthier nation of taco stands and dilapidated buildings with peeling purple and pink paint and uncontrollable rates of heinous crimes and diseases. And all the bleeding heart liberals who have aided and abetted will be thrown under the bus AFTER they've served their purpose of being the "useful fools".

Calderon needs to stay the hell out of America and America's business.
Thank you for the perfect summary.

Not sure on Canadians. Americans for the most part, no, but you can face stiff jail time if caught. They will usually work something out (or you can pay your way out) with the American Embassy. Yes, there is racial profiling and anyone who tells you differently has not been to the southern border area of Mexico. The news rarely reports these murders and beatings that Central Americans are handed, as a result of them crossing illegally into Mexico.

The first option is not really valid . . . foreign leaders can address other nations, they just need to use diplomacy and logic.

Otherwise, you should add the option of: "ALL OF THE ABOVE" because it appears that most who oppose illegal immigration disagree with Calderon for a number of reasons, not just one.

It's rather obvious from the hispandering standing ovation from the radical marxist democrats that obama knew exactly what calderon was going to say maybe to the point of helping calderon write the speech. You know, to coincide with obama's hispandering agenda Calderon was coached or even told what to say. (case in point obama's scripted staged press conferences)
