Re: Brenda Walker`s Blog: Rep. Tom McClintock Smacks Down Presidente Calderon

I support Arizona`s S.B.1070 without reservation and have urged my legislators to enact a similar law.

But I`m troubled by all the hand-wringing about Felipe Calderon`s meddling.

Of course, Calderon is complaining—just like we do about laws in Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and China.

The difference is that the U.S. provides Calderon with a forum, Congress, from which he can take his pot shots.

Can you imagine the Mexican Congress or the Iranian Parliament allowing President Barack Obama to lecture them foreign policy if he were a guest in their country?

The answer is to deny Calderon a platform. No more invitations to address Congress, at least none that aren`t preceded by a strong warning similar to the one issued after the fact by McClintock not to mention immigration.

York is a retired real estate executive.

James Fulford writes: We at agree with you—during the previous Presidente`s term in office, we published a column by Sam Francis titled Vicente Fox Should Be Arrested And Thrown Out Of U.S. For Good. Unfortunately, it`s not up to us—these invitations are issued by Barack Hussein Obama and Nancy Pelosi. They like Calderon`s message, to the point that people wondered if Calderon had used Obama`s speechwriters.
