I removed this post it was messing something up

I noticed the comments were not working for this post for some reason so I removed it. All is well now.
It must have just been one of those weird computer things or something in the code not liking my server. haha

Presidente Calderon should be fighting for immigrant rights in Mexico before criticizing the United States. Mexico enforces it's laws while the United States welcomes legal immigrants and ignores (as Hillary Clinton would say) illegal aliens. To list just a few of Mexico's immigration laws,

# 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."
