Letter to Editor - Obama, AZ, and Calderon

My letter to the editor: 
 President Obama, while hosting Mexico President Calderon, said:  “In the United States of America, no law-abiding person — be they an American citizen, a legal immigrant, or a visitor or tourist from Mexico — should ever be subject to suspicion simply because of what they look like.”  We can all agree.  As our President must know by now, the Arizona Immigration law concerns only those people who are ILLEGALLY in our country ( as per our federal laws) and who are also committing a crime.  They are not just "visiting", and they are costing America billions of dollars in education, healthcare and penal system costs, among others.  While doing so, they demand that we accede to their demands!   They are, however, specifically protected by this bill against a perusal of their papers unless they are breaking the law!  Just maybe our President (as well as our Attorney General Eric Holder and our Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano) should actually read the law to which he refers prior to condemning it.  Shamefully, the Democrats in Congress actually gave Calderon a standing ovation for condemning Arizona's law.  Perhaps Obama should have asked Calderon to describe his country's immigration and illegal entry laws.  He might have asked Calderon if it is true that for him, "Where there is a Mexican, there is Mexico”.  With those words Calderon is accepting the chants of brazen illegals who believe our American Southwest is part of Mexico, and they want it back. Obama said, “We are no longer defined by our borders.”  Then I ask why our country has a Border Patrol. 
Wolf Blitzer, while interviewing Calderon, asked if Mexican police go around asking for papers of people they suspect are illegal immigrants.  His answer?  "Of course! Of course!  And Calderon dares to condemn our "possible" use of profiling!
Mexican and Arab illegals are entering our country through the Mexican border.  Perhaps the man who was elected to uphold this country's laws, to represent all American interests, to keep our country secure, who took an oath to uphold our Constitution - should keep that in mind as he continues to denigrate America around the world.   Perhaps we Americans now understand some of what Obama meant by his campaign promise to “fundamentally change America.” 


  1. I think you'll agree with Rep. Tom McClintock's response to Calderon... Oorah!!!
