Calderon plays host to a criminal

From The American Thinker:

Mexico's President Calderon has delivered a slap in the face to the United States, and provided what amounts to an endorsement for his citizens violating the laws of the United States. Steve Gilbert of Sweetness & Light caught the significance of an official photo appearing on Mexico's Presidencia website, showing El Presidente meeting with Elvira Arellano, who illegally entered our country and who illegally used a fake social security number.

There can be no denying that this is a high honor for the citizen of any country. To confer such a distinction on someone who very publicly flouted the laws of a neighbor implies official endorsement of lawlessness.

Steve asks the important question of how Mexico would regard a neighboring nation encouraging its citizens to flout Mexico's laws, such as its strict immigration laws.

This is not the behavior of an amigo.

Of course it isn't the behavior of a friend. The government and people of Mexico hold the United States and its people in contempt. To them we are nothing but a giant ATM machine.

President Bush prizes loyalty above all other things. His supposed friend President Calderon has just spit in his face. I wonder if this will wake Mr. Bush up?
