‘WHERE THERE IS A MEXICAN, THERE IS MEXICO”

And where there is utter depraved stupidity, there is the Mexican President:

President Felipe Calderon blasted U.S. immigration policies on Sunday and promised to fight harder to protect the rights of Mexicans in the U.S., saying “Mexico does not end at its borders.”

The criticism earned Calderon a standing ovation during his first state-of-the nation address.

“We strongly protest the unilateral measures taken by the U.S. Congress and government that have only persecuted and exacerbated the mistreatment of Mexican undocumented workers,” he said. “The insensitivity toward those who support the U.S. economy and society has only served as an impetus to reinforce the battle … for their rights.”

He also reached out to the millions of Mexicans living in the United States, many illegally, saying: “Where there is a Mexican, there is Mexico.”

Interesting, isn’t it? Calderon can’t even make that boast good in his own country! Millions of Mexican citizens live in areas not controlled by the Mexican government but by vicious, murdering drug gangs. His control over his own capitol is also in question since the speech where he uttered those inflammatory words was not delivered at the Mexican Capitol building, the San Lazaro, where tradition dictates it be given, but rather at the National Palace (Palacio Nacional). This is due to the opposition’s blocking him from making the speech at the capitol, claiming Calderon rigged the election that brought him to power.

Of course, he’s counting on the fact that his fighting words will create a backlash from illegal immigrant opponents which will gain sympathy and support for the lawbreakers from legal Mexicans and naturalized citizens here in America. This will only serve to put more pressure on the Democrats and President Bush to pass an amnesty bill sooner rather than later.

No doubt, many will overreact to Calderon’s carefully calculated insult to American sovereignty and thus play into his hands. But actually, this is truly pathetic from the Mexican President. He is reduced to political tricks in order to get the American government to acquiesce to immigration reform.

Recent data on remittances from immigrants in the US to Mexico shows a significant drop thanks to measures designed to make it harder for illegals to send money home. This may have Calderon worried because those remittances dump around $18 billion into the Mexican economy in much needed dollars. And those transfer payments are the second largest source of foreign income following oil exports. Is it any wonder that Calderon sees putting pressure on the US government to pass Bush’s immigration reform as vital to Mexican national interests?

Let the popinjay spout, I say. He can brag as much as he wishes about Mexico claiming sovereignty over anywhere in the US that an illegal immigrant is breaking the law. But in the end, his rhetoric is as empty as his head if he thinks that anyone actually believes such nonsense.

    If Mexicans living in America are part of Mexico then let Mexico’s national healthcare system pay their medical bills and mortgage defaults and let Mexico incarcerate the rapists, drug dealers, and other felons living north of the nonexistent border.

    Oh yeah, and those anchor babies aren’t Americans after all, are they???

    When I was a kid, I went to parochial schools. We had Indians (India), Polish, German, Irish (a lot of Irish) and Mexicans. We were all just kids with one common bond, our language. Now, when I go back to my old neighborhood, every sign is in Spanish. Hell, Houston has a neighborhood where all the street signs are in Vietnamese (try finding a street there).

    That one common bond has faded and now we are no longer Americans. We are what ever comes first, and then Americans; like African-American, Mexican-Americans, etc.

    Mr. Calderon may think that sneaking into another nation and squatting makes those squatters an extension of his nation but he has a totally different approach to the invaders of his own nation from Central America. If they are not jailed, they are rounded up by the Mexican military and shipped back across the Mexican border. Hell, Calderon is so busy shipping back Central American and South Americans, there is no military left to monitor the drug cartels as they carry their product across the Texas border.

    I’m here to tell you that Texans, especially Tejanos, are getting tired of footing the bill for Calderon’s unwanted. Second and third generation Tejanos who have finally managed to learn enough to get out of the barrio and become blue collar workers are being replace by illegals who undercut their wages, sometimes as much as by half. There is anger in the air and no one wants to accept the anger that is building.

    Jorge Bush is one step closer to his dream of erasing the border and starting the North American Union.

    We are becomming a place where laws are not enforced, politicians are paid off, political correctness is out of control, in short, we are becomming more like Mexico. Ain’t that grand?

    We’re a COUNTRY - not just an economic region where people from around the world come to work.

    I want us to be a nation, not an employment service for inept, corrupt 3rd world nations like Mexico.

    Decade after decade, Mexico can’t improve itself because of it’s statist economy and silly ethnic chauvenism (machismo) and now they have a US president who is obsessed with raising their standard of living, when his job is to work for the American people.

    The Mexicans will win, by sheer weight of numbers, they will populate whole states before long, then petition to leave the US and join Mexico. There are enough wimpy, naive Americans who will allow it.

    Who does Calderon think he is to criticize our immigration policies? He ought to stay home, clean his government of all that corruption, and provide opportunities for his citizens instead of dumping them here. It’s strange his government’s immigration policies against Central and South Americans are much more stringent than ours. Another hypocrite? You bet he is.

    If Mexicans think there is a Mexico, let us deport all those who came here illegally back to Calderon. We cannot afford to be a dumping ground for those undesirables.

    we can cry about the immigrants and their refusal to assimilate all we want but the bottom line is our gutless politicians on both sides of the aisle. They for their own greedy purposes have undermined our Declaration of Independence,our Constitution and all we once held dear as a nation.
    These worthless bastards are internal assassins,and those of us who have continued to vote their useless butts back in office are just as guilty as they are.

    Who gives Pres. Felipe Calderon advice on US-Mexico immigration issues? It must be the same one who told people to march with Mexican flags and “you stole California” placards!

    Normally, we like Pres. Calderon. We support his overall objectives on the war on drug cartels and share his conservative views on economics.

    Over the weekend, Pres. Calderon had to deal with an immature left that can not get over the 2006 election. (Let’s call them the “Howard Dean Mexicans”!)

    During his “informe”, Pres. Calderon made some interesting comments about improving the Mexican economy. He called for more private investment and job creation.

    So far so good!

    Unfortunately, Pres. Calderon blasted raids and other measures being taken by the Bush administration to control the chaotic illegal immigration north of the border. (Mexico Blasts U.S. Immigration Policies)

    Here is the problem. Mexico is hypocritical on the subject of illegal immigration. (Mexico bars immigrants from thousands of jobs)

    Mexico is not an easy country for immigrants!

    Here is the second problem:

    “If Mexico wants to dictate our immigration policy to us, let’s follow their example to the letter. That example is particularly relevant on this further day of protests demanding amnesty for illegals.

    Among the demonstrators in at least 60 cities nationwide will undoubtedly be thousands of border lawbreakers.

    What would Mexico do?

    The answer is easy: deport them on the spot.

    In 2002, a dozen American college students, in Mexico legally, participated peacefully in an environmental protest against a planned airport outside of Mexico City. They swiftly found themselves deported as law-breakers for interfering in Mexico’s internal affairs.” (What Would Mexico Do with Protesting Illegals?)

    What should Mexico do? Stop blaming the US because Mexicans can not make it in Mexico.

    At the end of the day, US immigration laws are no different than those of most countries. Most countries, and specially Mexico, have rules about deporting those who violate immigration laws.

    Again, the problem is Mexico. Illegal immigration will stop when Mexico becomes more attractive to Mexicans.

    We will forgive Pres. Calderon this time. We understand that he is under extreme pressure and must work with immature leftists who are out of control. However, someone must tell Pres. Calderon that he is not helping the cause by blasting the US for enforcing immigration laws!

    Mexico, Mexico uber Alles?

    I believe Mr. Calderon’s claims were answered at San Jacinto. But perhaps he needs a refresher lesson. I’ve always thought Baja would make a great addition to the USA.
