GOP Congressman Says it's "Not Right" for Mexican Prez to Come to America and Criticize Arizona - Video 5/20/10
Here is video of GOP Rep. Lamar Smith (R-TX) saying he does not believe it right for Mexican Pres. Felipe Calderon to come to America and criticize our nation and one of our states - Arizona.
Rep. Smith said: "It's a little bit like inviting a guest over for dinner and having them criticize the food, and I just don't think it was appropriate."
Smith also said: "I just don't think it's right for the president of another country to come here and criticize our nation or our states for wanting to stop human smuggling, stop drug trafficking, or, frankly, secure their borders."
Rep. Smith finished with a great summary statement: "I just don't like the idea of foreign officials - officials of other governments coming to us and interfering in our domestic affairs. We wouldn't go to their country and tell them what to do. And I think they should concentrate on what's best for their nation, and let us concentrate on what we think is best for ours."
