Mexican President: "Mexico does not end at its borders."

Originally posted at Right Truth, posted here at Faultline USA's request.

Mexican President Felipe Calderon said, "Mexico does not end at its borders," and "Where there is a Mexican, there is Mexico." We've know that's what they believe, but now they have finally said it out loud, for all legal Americans to hear.

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." (News Max)

186 K Per Second:
Who the hell does Felipe Calderon think he is? Perhps if he could straighten out his crap hole of a country, it’s “residents” wouldn’t be leaving by the TENS of THOUSANDS for the far superior health care and economy of The United States of America!

Patterico's Pontifications:

I have some news that will undoubtedly shock you: Mexico does end at its borders.

Hot Air: Update (Bryan):

Following Calderon’s logic, does this mean that Mexico is now Iraq?

Or does it just mean that those of us who say that the porous US borders are a national security problem might know what we’re talking about?

Wake Up America:
... they do not "support the U.S. economy", they drain it with healthcare we, Americans, pay for with our taxes, the comment about "served as an impetus to reinforce the battle ... for their rights."... Guess what President Calderon?

They have no rights, they are criminals when they enter our country illegally.

Flopping Aces:

This is the kind of talk that even get fence sitters pissed off. Here is the Mexican President during his State of the Nation address today:

Infidels Are Cool:

This kind of talk is bold and dangerous.

Someone in Washington needs to fire back at Calderon and let him know that it is NOT the United States’ responsibility to accept and pander to all of Mexico’s illegal immigrants.


But we’re nearing the point where we’ll no longer be able to afford the charade. Plan Mexico is expected to cost over $1 billion. That would just be another billion dollars that could have been spent more wisely on other things. A mistake that this country has made more than a thousand times over.
