He could care less about the illegal alien Mexicans who are in the U.S.A. All he cares about is that they are off his welfare programs and they are sending billions of dollars back to Mexico.
Go home Calderon and fix your own country before you try to tell us how to run ours.

They don't have a welfare system in Mexico. That's one reason extended family living is essential for many families to survive. Work here, live over there with U.S. dollars. Calderon should be arrested once on U.S. soil for crimes against humanity. He is the one fanning the flame in this war and is most probably on the take from the Sinaloa cartel, seeing all others have been chased and arrested or killed except Chapo Guzman's stooges.

If Obama and this administrations don't pass immigration reform before the midterm election this year all Latinos
need to vote Republican until something is actually passed as punishment.

These Democrats think Latinos are the dumbest most
gullible people on the planet. They talk a good game to Latino voters about immigration reform and other issues
but they
never actually deliver.

If they really wanted to get immigration reform passed they could pull the same
stunts they did like with the bailouts and health care reform by bypassing Republicans
all together.

They for a brief while longer DON't NEED any Republican votes and they all know it.

They are firing up immigration once again to get Latinos mad at Republicans
because they desperately need Latino votes this election to stay in power.

Listen closely, if nothing is passed with Democrats fully in charge now
nothing ever will get passed. If they CHOOSE not to get it done now they will always find
an excuse saying there aren't enough votes due to Republicans. They won't have uninhibited power like this for
at least a decade.

Latinos should no longer be marginalize by the Deomocratic Party.

Vote Republican 100% this Novermber election if immigration reform is not passed before November
and the Democrats will realize how much they need the growing Latino vote.

Don't ever forgive the Democratic Party for failing to fix the illegal immigration crisis when they
could have done it so easily right now.

If the Dems can't fix the problem the Republicans will, although it will be messy.

Thanks to that Arizona governor for bringing this to a head right now but she
should be careful what she wishes for with Democrats in complete power like this. At least
she has some gutts.

It's funny. When Latino voters don't ask for immigration reform they say they don't care about the issue. When they do ask for it they say Latinos feel
they're entitled to it. It's a no win situation.

Actions speak louder than words.

Hopefully if words don't work in Arizona rioting will because from all
acounts that's what it looks like it will come down to.

Personally, if you want to make a difference with the state of the country hold loud nonviolent demonstrations outside
Harvard Business School, Goldman Sachs, Wallstreet and in front of politicians personal residences.

Illegal immigration is wrong and these people should either be given an opportunity to earn citizenship if they're clean or sent home.
No more limbo.

By the way the biggest number of illegal alients percentage wise are from India and China now
coming freely across the Canadian border or overstaying visas; it's not from Mexico anymore.
I like how all the Asian illegals are just sitting back right now letting this play out without getting
involved. They're taking high tech jobs that Americans will do. Of course the media could be silencing their voice who knows. They're good people but hey nobodys calling them out. Why?

Remember Latinos, don't let Democrats off the hook this time.

If there is immigration reform reward the Democats, if they're is not punish them and never forget.

..BTW, spellcheck, we don't need no stinking spellcheck.

We need some revolts in this country. Might as well start now. The ellites plan to wrek the country further and then take us to war so they can profit further off our missery. When there are no jobs but the job of soldier left it will be that much easier to whip us into a warlike frenzy. Just like ancient Rome or nazi Germany. So far the tea party looks like a bunch of pu55ies. That's why nothing is changing.

Let the angry reconquista crowd and the angry KFI klan have a cage match and get it over with. Both are wastes of space. The world would be better off
without them so normal people could live in peace. Don't listen to KFI unless you enjoy being in a crappy mood and never take your frustrations out on others as a result of the stuff you hear on that station. LA radio is obsessed with the immigration topic because it's the only way they get ratings these days. The stations are desperate and downsizing jobs like crazy. Most of their old audience is moving out of CA to places like Seattle or Arizona. The San Fernando Valley is emptying out.

There are so many other podcasts around the country you can download and listen to so have at it. Enough with all the KFIsms and stupid shtick.

Regarding Jackson and the Lakers,
I don't see how Hispanics would watch these basketball games seeing as there is no Hispanic representation in the NBA. Any Hispanics that support the NBA are brain dead. Besides, what's so interesting about a bunch of dudes throwing a ball in a hoop anyway? A lot of these guys are thugs.

Regarding anyone who thinks the Arizona law is equivalent to Nazi Germany pull your head out. Over five million Jews were murdered by the Nazis so don't go there;
it's a ridiculous comparison made by unpopular politicians looking for Hispanic votes. I hope no Hispanic politicians made this comparison by the way as it is very insulting to families of holocaust victims.

Regarding how asians view this Arizona law try this:

And lastly all this polling the media keeps rellaying is fine but why don't they do a poll about how well the Federal government is handling the illegal
immigration mess? I'd love to know more about how these polls are conducted. You know like who they ask and how they frame the questions.

Just remember if you are Hispanic or even Asian vote Republican next election to show the Democrats and Obama how disgusted you are with them for not addressing the illegal immigration mess. What the hell happened to Bush's border fence? Here is some good reading if you have the time.

Yes, the Mexican government does have certain programs for the poor and these programs cost money that Calderon would like to use elsewhere. Truth be known, he is probably here to demand that the border remain open so his citizens can come and go at will. He will probably threaten to join Chavez's anti-American coalition or to invite more Chinese industralization of Mexico. Let's see just how "American" Obama is. He's the weakest president on foreign policy we have ever had...even Carter was better at it and he was bad.

The problem is twofold. On thew one hand we have desperate people trying to survive and seeking a better life through honest hard work. On the other we have criminals who can't resist the temptation of selling their drugs to the huge USA market. It's good to keep that in mind in order to maintain a balanced view.

Our illustrious First Lady is taking the 1st Lady of Mexico to a local school with a large central and south American population to discuss nutrition.

Why are they not concentrate their efforts in their own region where it is needed??? Nope, lets worry about our people in another country and forget the ones living where we lead.

If I lived in Mexico, I would be p-o-ed to no end about how little they wish for us.

The Demos won't give the Latino population what they want: they are slaves to the labor unions. Legalizing even 15 million new workers will destroy the labor unions.

However, if the Latino population REALLY wanted to take a stand:

Petition the U.S. Government (Obama controlled) to grant political asylum to all of the undocumented "refugees" fleeing from the unquestioned yet undeclared CIVIL WAR in Mexico. Make the terms of asylum last 12-24 months. Then tell everyone to get off their butts and file naturalization paperwork before the time period is up.

Umm...no...no...and no...though I wouldn't mind deportation/exile being on the table for illegal immigrants who commit crimes against U.S. citizens within U.S. borders. That could technically be construed as an act of war.

Black slaves had to carry documents proving they were free when traveling. I guess the new slaves will have to abide by an old law and we are truly in an old America where time stands still and science and any progressive movement is considered a sin.

That would be extreme. This situation always boils down to one argument...Why don't we enforce the immigration laws we have? These laws were passed to protect our country, its citizens, and its resources. We can call illegal aliens anything we want, but it does not change their status...they remain "illegal aliens."
