Mexican President Felipe Calderon was in Washington for a big dog and pony show with Obama this week. The visit included a State Visit to the White House where he, along with Obama, slammed the new Arizona law permitting law enforcement officers to check the immigration status of those stopped for other reasons. Later, Calderon gave a speech to a joint session of Congress where he said the Arizona law could lead to "racial profiling as a basis for law enforcement." House Democrats and Obama cabinet officials stood and cheered.
On CNN, Wolf Blitzer interviewed Calderon and asked about Mexico's own immigration law which Calderon insists has been softened. But listen carefully starting at the 1:20 mark:
BLITZER: Do Mexican police go around asking for papers of people they suspect are illegal immigrants?Mexico is using the United States as a dumping ground to get rid of the poor people that failed socialist state is unable to care for and has the nerve to complain we are engaging in human rights violations when they do far worse to illegal immigrants in Mexico!
CALDERON: Of course! Of course!
BLITZER: If somebody sneaks in from Nicaragua or some other country in Central America through the southern border of Mexico and they wind up in Mexico, they can going get a job?
CALDERON: No, no, no.
BLITZER: They can work?
CALDERON: If somebody do that without permissions, we send -- we send back them.
That's bad enough. But what is worse are the Democrats in the U.S. House who stood and cheered as a state in our union was maligned with lies about racial profiling. Is it that Democrats hate their own country that much that they willfully join in this offensive farce?
We are truly living in dangerous times when a lie becomes the truth spread by a government propaganda machine!
