Mexican President Slams Arizona Law before a Joint Session of Congress; Democrats Stand and Applaud - Video 5/20/10
Here is video of Mexican President Felipe Calderon this morning speaking to a Joint Session of Congress. In his address he slammed the new Arizona anti-illegal immigration law.
Calderon said, "I strongly disagree with the recently adopted law in Arizona." When he said that, virtually all of the Democrats in the House Chamber stood and applauded him, including Nancy Pelosi, Vice-President Biden, and the assembled Cabinet. Notice Attorney General Eric Holder hesitantly standing at the 23 second mark of the video. Holder admitted earlier this week he has not yet read the law, even though he has been critical of it.
Calderon accused the law of pushing "racial profiling," which is patently false. The law explicitly prohibits racial profiling. But truth means nothing to people like Calderon and those on the Left seeking to push their radical agenda.
How dare Calderon come as a guest to the United States and then publicly blast a sovereign state for a law that has been enacted according to the Constitution.
But worse than Calderon, how dare the Democrats and the Obama Administration stand on the side of a foreign leader against one of our nation's 50 states.
