Felipe Calderon protests "persecution and abusive treatment of undocumented Mexican workers"

COVID-19 Response

Like everyone else, we urge you to wash your hands and engage in social distancing.

Unlike everyone else, we urge you to also help with this smart plan to get more tests, ventilators, and PPE. Everyone can do that plan right now, at home, in just 15 minutes.

If enough people help with the plan we can save lives. Take time out now and help get more desperately-needed supplies.

Reuters offers the falsely-titled "Mexico's Calderon protests U.S. crackdown on immigrants". While to a certain extent his protest may just be for domestic consumption (per Reuters it was followed by "raucous applause"), based on past statements from other Mexican leaders it amply illustrates how they think:
"I want to express again an energetic protest at the unilateral measures taken by the U.S. Congress and government which exacerbate the persecution and abusive treatment of undocumented Mexican workers... The Mexican government will continue to insist firmly ... on the need for an integral immigration reform and the categorical rejection of the building of a wall on our common border."
Do we really want to allow Mexico to send us even more people, thereby giving that country even more political power inside the U.S.? Do we really want to give in to those in Mexico and the U.S. who support "comprehensive immigration reform" (called above "integral")?

UPDATE: From this:
Calderon also pledged a bigger budget for Mexico's consulates to help them defend migrants' rights.

"Mexico does not end at the border," he said. "Wherever there is a Mexican, Mexico will be there."

Calderon also said he would depart from Mexico's longstanding policy of non-intervention, allowing the country to take a bigger role in world affairs.

"We have pushed for an active foreign policy that allows Mexico to be a protagonist, and not just a mere spectator, of what happens in the world," he said.

Mexico now has the world's 13th biggest Gross Domestic Product, just behind Canada's, according to the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency. The country is widely admired in Latin America for its relative economic strength, democratic reforms and political stability.
His two predecessors (Vicente Fox and Ernesto Zedillo) said similar things regarding the Mexican Nation extending beyond its borders, and Carlos Gonzalez Gutierrez, former head of the Institute of Mexicans Abroad went even further.

In fact, here's a Zedillo quote:
"I have proudly affirmed that the Mexican nation extends beyond the territory enclosed by its borders and that Mexican migrants are an important - a very important - part of it."
Obviously, there's a huge opportunity here to discredit any politician who supports massive immigration from Mexico by pointing out that they're allowing Mexico to extend their nation into our country. Whatever their objections, avoiding a foreign country obtaining political power inside our country trumps them. In certain cases those who assist Mexico in their goals could be portrayed as little more than Quislings.

And, "humanitarians" can be discredited by pointing out that Mexico is a relatively rich country and that the world's richest man lives there.


Of course they want them to be well treated because they don't want them to come back. Among other reasons.

Abusive treatment of undocumented Mexican workers? Do MS-13, the Mexican Mafia, et.al. realize they're contributions to the invasion are being completely overlooked by Mr. Calderon?

yes Tanstaaf1 is right but the other known reason is the pigs in mexico city make a hell of alot of money in drugs and the cash sent home billions and billions that is why and the other reason is total take over of the south west by evil mexican gangs and mass population as a weapon and someday the total take over of this nation and the REMOVAL/EXCLUSION of all other people from the North American/mexico city shit union. We can yell all day and cry evil but if you don't get your butt off the Ground and start to act like American you will live in hell. Think Right think 1776 and move your butt from the pot.

_"Mexico does not end at the border," he said. "Wherever there is a Mexican, Mexico will be there."_ _"I have proudly affirmed that the Mexican nation extends beyond the territory enclosed by its borders and that Mexican migrants are an important - a very important - part of it."_ Where are the cries of "imperialism" that we would hear from the Left if this were a U.S. president saying such things?

smartass sob, its all about race and mexico city understands how to taken a nation by using mass population as a weapon and when a nation and its people just stand by and do nothing that nation is nothing. Hell Guys why fight in a war when your government is handing its rights over to drug dealers? mexico is a place of evil doers and hate race people but yell most still don't get that fact.

El Jefe Bush has so much middle east sand stuffed between his ears that he can't hear the drumbeats from Mexico City. So what is Congress' excuse?

I agree with Fred. Our best and bravest are sent overseas to be ground up like so much hamburger, "for our security", meanwhile the govt leaves our border wide open so the world's worst and dumbest can flood in. Our military guys have got to be wondering: "Am I fighting for the benefit of Iraqis, or Mexicans?"

While our generals set up border security in Iraq to keep the Iranians out, we stall doing anything here. The fence is needed if only to keep us safe from any who want to kill us. However, the Presidente of Mexico talking about "immigrant rights" when he is in fact talking about "illegal aliens," is an exercise in stupidity. Has he ever mentioned what Mexico does to those coming in from Honduras, Nicaragua, Colombia, etc.? I seem to remember reading the story about "armed Mexican troops" removing those who had gathered at a railroad stop & planned to hop a freight up to the American border. Seems the trains suddenly stopped running that route but no one told the "immigrants from other than Mexico." But the Mexicans told them at the point of guns, to get the hell out. If its good for Mexico, its good for us! Our returning tanks, Hummers, etc. can easily be positioned along the southern border to make this point clear! The "other solution" Mexico uses for its "immigrant" problem, is to turn those people over to the local authorities & military types, who then promptly "rape, assault, beat half to death, rob, confiscate, and in some cases unreported, MURDER," those trying to make it to America. What a plan. But remember, we in America are the mean, nasty, bigoted, racist, horrible, stingy, hateful, red neck, or any other name they can come up with to describe us in derogatory terms, bad guys. Everyone else in the world are saints, right? Right? Right? If we used Mexico's immigration laws, we would not have the problems we have today. We would however be required to sink way down to their level!
