Mexico's frustration with U.S. immigration policy builds
Government, advocates are calling for measures to influence U.S. public opinion.

MEXICO CITY Anger in Mexico is growing in the wake of a number of new state laws in the United States considered by critics to be anti-Mexican, a shift probably reflected in President Felipe Calderón's verbal lashing this week of U.S. presidential candidates.
In tougher rhetoric toward U.S. immigration policies, Calderón scolded presidential candidates for using migrants as thematic hostages and announced a media campaign aimed at influencing American public opinion.
Calderón's comments represented a dramatic departure from the statements of past leaders and were welcomed by many in Mexico.
"I think the current American government has gone too far against illegal Mexicans," said Fernando Garcia, a 36-year-old Mexico City administrator. "I don't like the raids and how they destroy families (and) ... the hate they are generating against Mexicans."

Let's think about this - they are illegal - how far is too far - is sending them back too far? What a load of codswallop. Im going to need a bigger wheelbarrow, if the Mexican government doesn't just shut up.
Oh, trust me, Meheeco, OUR frustration with YOUR laws (or lack thereof) is building as well. Frustration is quite mutual right now.
Where’s Black Jack Pershing when you need him?
Frustration? The feeling is mutual.
What a maroon.
L.O.L.!!!...how about TO DAMN BAD?
Adios, inmigrante ilegal.
Call 60 Minutes !
This is the same mentality that psses me off about welfare recipients and leftists in general -
WE’RE ENTITLED TO YOUR STUFF.
Mexico, my “Give A Damn” is broken.
Gee, Fernando, have we even gone as far as Mexico's handling of their illegal immigrants? Hmm?
Put the military on the border...with tanks and F-16s.
...with tanks and A-10s...
“Anger in Mexico is growing in the wake of a number of new state laws

Critics are wrong.
Americans just want ILLEGAL repatriated to wherever they came from.
E.g., Charlotte, NC has spent at least a year checking immigration
status of detainees and arrestees. Of the illegals they find, about
10 percent are NOT from “south of the border”.
And they get the boot just like any other Illegal.
I get sick and tired of tin-horn, third world idiots like Calderon trying to tell the citizens of the USA how to run our affairs. I’ll listen to him when he cleans up the mess in his own freakin’ house.
