Mexico’s Calderon urges immigration reform

During his visit to the White House today Mexican president Felipe Calderon continued his earlier criticism of Arizona’s recently signed immigration law. Via a translated transcript provided by the White House:
We can make it, if we continue building a safer border and if we transform it in a border that does not divide our peoples, in a land of opportunities and progress. We can make it, if we develop a comprehensive, fair and long term solution to the challenges that migration currently poses. I know that we share the interest in promoting dignified, legal and orderly living conditions to all migrant workers. Many of them, despite their significant contribution to the economy and to the society of the United States, still live in the shadows and, occasionally, as in Arizona, they even face discrimination.
For his part, U.S. President Barack Obama admitted that the controversial measure in Arizona arose from a “frustration over our broken immigration system.” He also pledged that he would tackle the much-delayed federal immigration reform yet warned that there may not be sufficient Congressional support.

Calderon’s state visit to DC will also focus on other issues including trade and increased drug-related violence in Mexico. These topics will likely be touched on when Calderon speaks at an upcoming joint session of Congress.

Video : Big Boycott in Mexico against Arizona - Mexico buys 4.5 billion dollars from Arizona and spends 2.5 billion dollars in tourism inside Arizona

Mexico is number one foreign customer of Arizona, far surpassing Canada and China. Latin America buys more from the USA than the European Economic Community.

Activists in Mexico City are organizing a Big Boycott of Arizona Products and Services. Don't buy from Arizona, Don't travel to Arizona.

The North American Free Trade Agreement prohibits the Mexican Government from participation and organization, but not the citizens of Mexico, they can vote with their dollars ( by not spending them in Arizona ).


AlJazeeraEnglish — May 19, 2010 — A new law in Arizona targeting illegal immigrants has given police broad powers to stop anyone they suspect of being in the state illegally and detain them if they cannot prove their immigration status.

The introduction of the law has angered activists in Mexico say the law is discriminatory. In response they are trying to organize a boycott of Arizona.

Al Jazeera's Franc Contreras reports from Mexico City.

The hypocrisy and outright mendacity of people like Calderon is breathtaking. He belongs to a privileged oligarchy in Mexico that has plundered the country and oppressed its Indian and Mestizo peoples for centuries. Anyone with even a passing familiarity with Mexico knows how the elites treat their servientes. They have been utterly unable to solve their own endemic problems of poverty, unemployment and corruption so letting untold millions migrate to the U.S. solves many of these problems.At least temporarily.But it's easy to blame the Yanquis and stooges like Obama make it all the easier. What would the reaction have been in Mexico if a foreign leader had addressed the Mexican congress and spent most of the time criticizing Mexican laws and attitudes, There would have been near universal outrage. Am I not correct? The U.S. should pattern its immigration laws after those of Mexico by which every police officer is obligated to ask foreigners to prove their legal status in the country and by which no polical protest by foreigners is tolerated. Mexico's treatment of migrants from Central America is abysmally bad. Get your own house in order first.

Videos : Nazi Parades in Phoenix Arizona - Photos : Republican friends in Legislature embrace Nazis - Swastikas and Nazi SS Murderer Symbols

Here you see the two videos under the text :

These are videos of Bullies, Thugs and Scoundrels parading the Worst Nazi Racist Symbols of Murder against Jews in Phoenix Arizona, and the Flags of Infamy. And being aggressive towards the spectators.

Other websites show you the photos that connect this Imbecility and Brutality with Arizona Politicians like Russell Pearce, this guy is the main actor pushing for Racist Legislation.

Russell Pearce is an abuser that beats and kicks his wife, as is shown in divorce papers. He has made many racist declarations.

"Further, the husband, RUSSELL KEITH PEARCE, is possessed of a violent temper, and has from time to time hit and shoved the wife, the last time being on February 3 [1980], when he grabbed the wife by the throat and threw her down."
