Battle lines are being drawn over this measure, and I stand four square behind my state in their right to COPY FEDERAL LAW INTO OUR OWN STATUTES.

For the Mexican president to stand on the lawn of the White House and effectively call a US state racist is beyond disgusting, even our current self-hating administration must have winced at that.

Hey bub, you are from the UK. My parents passed through Ellis Island, and had a rough go of it,as did the relatives of most people you refer to.

What you suggest is like saying our parentage had a party here, and never decided to leave.

People who are a couple of generations away, did not have relatives that snuck over the border.

The Mexican President SHOULD have criticized the law, it's almost his duty to do so as it directly affects the financial interests of his country.

You folks can bad mouth him all you want, but I'd be surprised if he didn't criticize it.

I'd suggest you might do the same thing if you were him.

Additionally, corruption is hard to fight when the pockets of the drug cartels is so very deep with US dollars. It isn't Mexico that has terribly immigration policy. They actually have pretty good immigration laws, tough ones too.

Most of what I've read in this thread is outrage that amounts to nothing and has little to no worth. Feel free to get all hot and bothered at the wrong things some more, though. It's just what they want.

Peace
KJ

I was seriously thinking about all the things Calderon has said and done with respect to Illegal Immigration / Immigration. After hearing of this story today and just sitting here with my mouth open...pondering the COJONES on this guy...I'm now fully aware that this guy is an AUTHENTIC enemy of our nation.

He has all but declared war on us. And we have troops somewhere in "Dontknowistan" guarding poppy fields and chasing ghosts , while this C$(&@*&$@)$@$ TELLS US HOW TO RUN OUR IMMIGRATION LAWS and slowly subverts us from the inside?

Screw the "terrorists"...send our guys after THIS one. I can't believe it. Do we even have a President anymore that will stand up for America? And the fact that Obama lets him run his mouth like that....it's almost comical.

Go Mr. President!!!

More leaders need to speak up like this and more Americans need to see how vile and disgusting this Arizona law is.

Ah the good ol days. In those days it took the money to buy a boat ticket, 29 questions, sometimes a cursory but free medical inspection, and a 98% chance of making it in legally.

The rough go was from domestic discrimination against your kind. Most of those dirty Irish or Italians lived in abject poverty like animals.

It's surprising there isn't more commiseration between recent immigrants and the slightly earlier ones.

I agree.

Since many of us came from England, how about we all move back there and let you blokes pay for our welfare for the rest of our lives. Sounds golly good to me 'ol chap. Now send my plane tickets please.

The Arizona crowd needs to stand their ground and if need be seceed from the union and declare war on those who would invade them, IMO.

What, exactly, is disgusting about the law?

I'm pretty sure the "racism" debate has been entirely debunked, even though it might happen anyway, so that can't be it.

While I think the political move is wrong, most of the opposition really has no clue what they are opposed to and don't have any opinions on solutions either.

That's more vile in my book.

While I agree that Calderon is a hypocritical, self-absorbed @#$%stain in standing on the White House lawn and criticizing our attempts to deal with his mess, let's reserve judgement on Obama's lack of reaction here... it was a press conference in front of God knows how much media. He couldn't very well snap at him and start kicking him in the nards.

Whether Obama secretly loves or hates ole' Felipe, the fact is he is soon approaching the time when he has to deal with this situation. He can stall for time talking about mid-term elections all he wants, but this is a problem that AZ has brought to the forefront and isn't going away. Either his administration gets of its arse and tries to take charge or the rest of the SW makes him look even more impotent than Calderon by doing it themselves - and no President wants to be shown up by individual states.

Well, isn't that his problem? LOL, you have got to be kidding!


You folks can bad mouth him all you want, but I'd be surprised if he didn't criticize it.


I don't really think anybody is criticizing him........but we are bad mouthing Obama, for standing there like a dumb@$$!


I'd suggest you might do the same thing if you were him.


Really, do you insult folks in their own homes when you go to visit, often?


Additionally, corruption is hard to fight when the pockets of the drug cartels is so very deep with US dollars. It isn't Mexico that has terribly immigration policy. They actually have pretty good immigration laws, tough ones too.


And, we shouldn't have the same?

He shouldn't even be on the White House lawn at this time. Really, it's a slap in the face to America.


Peace


Yeah, right!

I have a question.

Why is the Mexican El Presidente all fired up because Arizona wants to prevent his countrymen from entering their state illegally?

Does he want the citizens of his country to leave their home for another country? In an illegal fashion at that?

Yeah well, my family had their named changed when the moved from Germany because it was too hard to spell and proununciate by the Ellis Island officials.

I did have a relative, that added on an O' (apostrophe), to his name when he moved from England, because he heard the Irish got a better shake in America.

Really, none of my heritage kept their original names from the old country.

So, it is quite interesting how my parentage, has had to adjust to being American citizens.

They all were legal citizens by the way they entered the country.

That is the difference between where some of us came from, versus illegals.

Here's a good one from the net:


"DEAR MR. PRESIDENT, I AM PLANNING TO MOVE MY FAMILY AND MY EXTENDED FAMILY INTO MEXICO FOR MY HEALTH, AND I WOULD LIKE TO ASK
Posted 2 days 15 hours ago by Skye Rivers

Dear Mr. President: I'm planning to move my family and extended family into Mexico for my health, and I would like to ask you to assist me. We're planning to simply walk across the border from the U.S. Into Mexico, and we'll need your help to make a few arrangements. We plan to skip all the legal stuff like visas, passports, immigration quotas and laws. I'm sure they handle those things the same way you do here. So, would you mind telling your buddy, President Calderon, that I'm on my way over? Please let him know that I will be expecting the following:

(please be advised this was taken from onlinechoice.com via the Oklahoma City News and I thought this would be of some interest to the lot of you, and yes you too Gary... you too)

1. Free medical care for my entire family.

2. English-speaking government bureaucrats for all services I might need, whether I use them or not.

3. All Mexican government forms printed in English.

4. English-speaking (bi-lingual) teachers to teach Spanish to my grandkids.

5. Classes on American culture and history taught in their schools.

6. The American flag flying on one of the flag poles at their school, to make my grandkids feel welcome.

7. Both breakfast and lunch served at school for my grandkids.

8. A local Mexican driver's lcense so I can get easy access to government services.

9. I do plan to get a car and drive in Mexico, but I don't plan to purchase car insurance, and I probably won't make any special effort to learn local traffic laws.

10. In case one of the Mexican police officers does not get the memo from their president to leave me alone, please be sure that every patrol car has at least one English-speaking officer.

11. I plan to fly the U.S. flag from my house top, put U. S. Flag decals on my car, and have a gigantic celebration on July 4th. I do not want any complaints or negative comments from the locals.

12. I would also like to have a nice job without paying any taxes, or have any labor or tax laws enforced on any business I may start.

13. Please have the president tell all the Mexican people to be extremely nice and never say critical things about me or my family, or about the strain we might place on their economy.

14. I want to receive free food stamps.

15. Naturally, I'll expect free rent subsidies.

16. I'll need Income tax credits, so, although I don't pay Mexican Taxes, I'll receive money from the government.

17. Please arrange it so that the Mexican Government pays $4,500 to help me buy a new car.

18. Oh yes, I almost forgot, please enroll me free into the Mexican Social Security program so that I'll get a monthly income in retirement. I know this is an easy request because you already do all these things for all his people who come to the U.S. From Mexico.

I am sure that President Calderon of Mexico won't mind returning the favor if you ask him nicely. Thank you so much for your kind help. You da man!

Additional note: We've seen this letter posted in other places online, but have been unable to determine its origin. If this material is your original work, or you know to whom it should be attributed, please let us know, so we can give credit where credit is due.

United We Stand and Divided We Fall!

it is time "We The People" of the United States join together with the State of Arizona and Stop this Boycott Crap that California and other States came up with to Punish Arizona trying to get Arizona to do away with their New Immigration Law!

I said it once, and I will now say it again:
Try to get into or out of another country without a passport and see what happens.

I don't care what a Mexican Presidents or people from another country say, the immigration issue has been here for decades, and still we let them "just come on in" and have our REGISTERED CITIZENS TAXES to pay for all their welfare, their education, their housing and their deportation. (I like that one) and still nothing is ever done.

No wonder American do not have any money to spend, we shell it out for all the programs the government creates and then pockets the money, or give it to the WAR MACHINE instead of putting it to some great or better use.


Listen, The Chinese Build a wall for crying out loud! END OF ISSUE!!!!

Sounds to me like the greater purpose is to create one country NORTH AMERICA, and then connect it to a World UNION and a WORLD BANKING SYSTEM. That's why they never do anything about the immigration issues.

They are pulling the wool over our eyes and we see them doing it, but do nothing but bitch. We are asleep (including me) and they continue to do what they have done from the start, Control people (give them the impression they are free) and milk us for everything thing we can make during our lifetime, making them rich and us poorer..

One day....One Day.........Maybe we wake up....


End of Line......

Hm.

HIS People being mistreated in OUR country.

What isn't wrong with that statement? Mexico needs a strong government that wont brush issues like the drug wars aside or dump them in our lap and hope we will take care of it. We aren't you parents, you aren't a child!

YES, and the Previous President actually gave out maps on the best location and time of year to cross and locations of water drops and of-course the Federals escorted many to the boarder.

Wow, talk about ignorance... you do realize that when our previous generations came here, they could come without using a passport or visa, right? That doesn't make them illegal because at that time, there were no laws restricting entry into our country.

Since then, we have established laws on immigration, apparently which, you are are not familiar with or the reasons in which they were established.

I know who in my genealogy came here from other lands, and when they did, it was 100% legit. What these people do is completely and totally illegal, which is why they have to pay such high sums of money to find someone that can pull off a mission such as getting them over a country's border. What would you have to pay to pull that off in China and not get caught?

Oh, and let's not forget.... my descendants as well as most others learned the language, got a job that paid taxes and respected the laws.

Dare you still call us hypocrites?

~Namaste

My Grandfather came here from Italy through Ellis Island.

It didn't take just money, you had to be put in a lottery system from your home town. They only let a few hundred thousand at a time come over.

After a medical inspection, he had to spend three weeks in a concrete cell/room with bars on it, like jail.

He was called all sorts of names, mostly from the Irish and English that were here, and the ones coming over.

He kissed the ground and vowed his allegiance to America and never looked back.

He started his own pool hall with saved money and told the Mafia to get lost anytime they came to him for a 'job'.

These Illegal Immigrants are NOTHING like my Grandfather and the Grandfathers of many of us.
