Few days ago, the Mexican president came to our country and in front the US Congress and the president Obama, he critized the AZ law and stated his complete opposition to that "racist". All the Congress agreed with a stand-up applause. Do you think that this was appropiate or not? I believe that he shouldn't come here to tell us what to do or not. He should clean his own yard first! He is promoting the illegal immigration by telling their people not to come to Arizona because they will be arrested. He should promote a better and quality life to his people instead of waiting that we resolve his own country problems. But if our own President and Congress approve this kind of disrespectful actions against their Americans citizens, what else we can expect? We are not Americans racists, we are Fed-up Americans, enough is enough!

Mexico is just as bad as the US Here is mexico's "humane border laws" as opposed to our so horrible ones Under Article 123 of the General Population Act, illegal immigration is an offense punishable by up to two years in prison and a fine of up to 5,000 pesos, or about $450. Typically, any crime with a punishment of a year or more is considered a felony. Article 118 of the act says foreigners who are deported and then later attempt to re-enter the country without authorization can be punished with up to 10 years in prison. Under Article 73, local police must cooperate with federal immigration authorities when asked to help enforce the nation's immigration laws. As set forth in several articles of the act, immigrants are admitted into Mexico according to their potential to "contribute to the national progress" and must have the income needed to support themselves. Article 9 of the constitution says only citizens may assemble to "take part in the political affairs of the country." Under Article 33, noncitizens "may not in any way participate in the political affairs of the country."

Well at least in U.S. we admitted everybody illegals and legals doesn't matter that they can't have the income to support themselves. Here the responsible taxpayers are the ones that have to support these illegals and their families! And on top of that we have to handle to be call racists and nazis and all kinds of adjectives when we just want to reinforce the law.
