No, Mr. Obama is going to Kalamazoo Central High School in Kalamazoo, Michigan to shake hands with every graduating senior... BUT,
Seniors are being asked to provide their birthdates, Social Security numbers and citizen status to the Secret Service so background checks could be performed. Such a check is required for anyone who gets within an arm’s length of the president, students were told at their senior breakfast Friday....but he doesn't want Arizona police to do so when they stop someone for any lawful reason to do...yet another example of why "progressives" (the don't like the term "liberal" any more since it has now taken on so many negative connotations) are at heart hypocrits. That's after Democrats in Congress gave Mexican President Calderon a standing ovation when he called upon Congress to void the Arizona law...this despite the fact that Mexican Illegal Immigration law is much tough than American.
Under the Mexican law, illegal immigration is a felony, punishable by up to two years in prison. Immigrants who are deported and attempt to re-enter can be imprisoned for 10 years. Visa violators can be sentenced to six-year terms. Mexicans who help illegal immigrants are considered criminals. The law also says Mexico can deport foreigners who are deemed detrimental to "economic or national interests," violate Mexican law, are not "physically or mentally healthy" or lack the "necessary funds for their sustenance" and for their dependents.More importantly, Mr. Calderon denied this fact when interviewed by Wolf Blitzer on CNN propaganda network,
BLITZER: So if people want to come from Guatemala or Honduras or El Salvador or Nicaragua, they want to just come into Mexico, they can just walk in?So...as you can read for yourself...the Democratic party and their media enablers are charecterizing the Arizona law as something it isn't and attempting to whitewash history and Mexican corruption in a far different light. As I said in the post title hypocrisy...
CALDERON: No. They need to fulfill a form. They need to establish their right name. We analyze if they have not a criminal precedent. And they coming into Mexico. Actually …
BLITZER: Do Mexican police go around asking for papers of people they suspect are illegal immigrants?
CALDERON: Of course. Of course, in the border, we are asking the people, who are you? And if they explain …
BLITZER: At the border, I understand, when they come in.
BLITZER: But once they’re in …
CALDERON: But not — but not in — if — once they are inside the — inside the country, what the Mexican police do is, of course, enforce the law. But by any means, immigration is a crime anymore in Mexico.
BLITZER: Immigration is not a crime, you’re saying?
CALDERON: It’s not a crime.
BLITZER: So in other words, if somebody sneaks in from Nicaragua or some other country in Central America, through the southern border of Mexico, they wind up in Mexico, they can go get a job …
CALDERON: No, no.
BLITZER: They can work.
CALDERON: If — if somebody do that without permission, we send back — we send back them.
BLITZER: You find them and you send them back?
CALDERON: Yes. However, especially with the people of Guatemala, we are providing a new system in which any single citizen from Guatemala could be able to visit any single border (INAUDIBLE) in the south. And even with all the requirements, he can or she can visit any parts of Mexico.
