Mexican President Assails U.S. Measures on Migrants


www.nytimes.com

In his speech, Mr. Calderón, who has acknowledged that he has relatives who migrated to the United States, suggested that the deportation of undocumented immigrants bordered on a violation of human rights, and he vowed to help illegal migrants.

“I have said that Mexico does not stop at its border, that wherever there is a Mexican, there is Mexico,” he said. “And, for this reason, the government action on behalf of our countrymen is guided by principles, for the defense and protection of their rights.”

Where is this guy getting this stuff from?

Why is it a violation of human rights for the US to deport illegal immigrants?

Mexico's own laws say that illegal immigration into Mexico is a felony, and the penalty is prison for up to 2 years, a fine up to 3,000 pesos, or deportation!

There is no reason for him to try to help curb his citizens that are illegally immigrating to the US, these immigrants are his poorest people and they annually send $20 billion home to Mexico!

It's hard to believe he is always spewing this stuff when his laws for illegal immigration are the same as the US laws, you enter the country illegally, you get deported!
