    Thumbs down Obama, Calderon Blast Arizona Immigration Law

    Birds of a feather. Personally I think Calderon should keep his mouth shut. Who cares what he thinks. He better fix his own country instead of running his mouth about our business.

    Obama, Calderon Blast Arizona Immigration Law During White House Visit

    President Obama and Mexican President Felipe Calderon joined hands Wednesday in blasting Arizona's controversial immigration law, with Obama calling the legislation a "misdirected effort" after Calderon slammed it as discriminatory.

    President Obama and Mexican President Felipe Calderon joined hands Wednesday in blasting Arizona's controversial immigration law, with Obama calling the legislation a "misdirected effort" after Calderon slammed it as discriminatory.

    Obama, speaking next to Calderon during Wednesday's state visit, called the the tough immigration law a "misdirected expression of frustration over our broken immigration system."

    "We're examining any implications especially for civil rights because in the United States of America, no law abiding person -- be they an American citizen, illegal immigrant, or a visitor or tourist from Mexico -- should ever be subject to suspicion simply because of what they look like."

    Obama said he has directed the Justice Department to review the law and said he expects to receive a final report soon.

    Arizona's law, which takes effect in July, will make it a crime under state law to be in the U.S. illegally

    At the start of Wednesday's White House visit, Calderon said the law discriminated against Mexicans and called for the two countries to work together to develop an immigration policy that did not force people to live in the shadows "with such laws as the Arizona law, which is forcing our people to face discrimination."

    Calderon, whose remarks were translated from Spanish, said "We can do so if we create a safer border -- a border that will unite us instead of dividing us.

    "We can do so with a community that will promote a dignified life in an orderly way for both our countries, who are some of them still living here in the shadows," he said. "If we are divided we cannot overcome these problems. We can only do this if we actually face our mutual problems."

    Obama also stressed that he and Calderon had directed their governments to make the U.S.-Mexican border more secure and efficient.

    Sprinkling in a bit of Spanish, Obama went to great lengths to greet Calderon, who is fighting an escalating, bloody battle against drug cartels in his country and facing pressure to get results on immigration reform. Around the White House grounds, Mexican and U.S. flags waved together, while cheering school children and military in their finest dress uniforms gathered on the South Lawn to embrace the pageantry.

    "Illegal immigration is down, not up," Obama said, "And we will continue to do whatever is necessary to secure our shared border."

    "Today I want every American to know my administration has devoted unprecedented resources in personnel and technology to securing our border," he added.

    The Associated Press contributed to this report.

    2012 can't get here soon enough. A leader of this country does not allow another leader of another control to disrespect a state or people of America.

    Why doesn't some reporter or better yet Obama ask Calderon what happens when people sneak into Mexico?

    Someone did. The transcript, or at least an excerpt is in another thread on this forum.

    We would quickly be sent back across the border to continue to pay taxes that will help pay the health care costs and fill the welfare coffers for the illegals immigrants. Perhaps we would be asked to bring a few kilo's of Mexico's finest with us..

    Who gives a rats ass what the Mexican president wants here.

    Peace...
    You can give peace a chance alright..

    I'll seek cover in case it goes badly..
