Mexican President Felipe Calderon on Wednesday acknowledged tensions between the U.S. and Mexico over illegal immigration but stressed that both countries have an interest in ensuring their citizens can cross the border legally and safely.

Addressing a joint session of the California Legislature, Calderon said the economies of the two countries are interdependent. For that reason, there must be "shared responsibility" for immigration on both sides of the border.

"I know that immigration is a controversial issue today in this great nation. But I strongly believe that Mexican and Mexican-American workers are a large reason for the dynamic economy of California," he said in prepared remarks.

"Our nations will never find prosperity by closing their doors."

Interesting. Too bad so many of his citizens sneak over here and free load.

NO to any illegals.

The trilateral agreement is only hurting the poor on both sides. These "politicians" are only in it for the money.

I guess not. What a crackpot! No wonder he and Jorge get along so well. I am amazed that he can say this stuff with a straight face. He can't possibly think anyone is going to believe all this crap, can he?

We all need to learn Calderonspeak. What he actually said was don't stop the remittances that are coming to Mexico. Increase them.

With the U.S. economy imploding, Calderon obviously thinks he can squeeze "blood out of a turnip".

Maybe he is part of Mexico's drug cartel and we are making life harder for him.

Mexico to bolster immigrant defense
Anti-defamation league weighed as consulates in U.S. go on offensive
08:21 AM CDT on Thursday, October 4, 2007

Morning News
The Mexican government is giving its consulates in the U.S. wide latitude to ramp up a campaign to toughen their defense of immigrants and plans to give them more resources as well, officials familiar with the strategy said

The move comes as deportations reach an all-time high in the toughest crackdown in decades by the U.S. government and police authorities.

quote
"Still, other questions remain.
Primitivo Rodríguez, a Mexico City resident who attended the meeting, said he worries that it's too late for the Mexican government to try a new strategy, and many Mexicans may soon be returning to a country unable to provide good-paying jobs.
"There is a tsunami, not a thunderstorm, coming toward us, and I don't think the government has a plan," said Mr. Rodríguez, coordinator of the Coalition for the Political Rights of Mexicans Abroad, which has members in Chicago, Los Angeles and Houston. "What will Mexico do with so many unhappy, desperate people? Mexico is simply not prepared for what's coming next."
