This would be funny if it weren't so frightening:
At today's White House news briefing, WND asked presidential press secretary Scott McClellan about the Mexican government's distribution of a comic-book-style guide to illegal border crossers.
WND: [...asks about "The Guide for the Mexican Migrant"...] And my question: Since the president surely opposes this, what will he do about it?
...McCLELLAN: Well, I will look into it. I'm not familiar with it.
WND: [...asks about California State Senator Gloria Romero's concerns about the cost of incarcerating Mexican prisoners...] And my question: Is the president as concerned about this as this Hispanic American state senator, who is a Democrat?
McCLELLAN: [...prattles on for precisely 119 words: things are getting better, "guest" workers, compassion, etc. etc...]
WND: What about exchanging prisoners? This is done all over the world. If we have a foreign national, we ship them over, and they ship ours over here. But the Mexican government will not accept [this], except 109.
McCLELLAN: This specific question might be best directed to the State Department. I'll be glad to look into it, as well. But I'm not familiar with the details of it.
