Mexican President Felipe Calderon condemned Arizona's immigration law. He said it was discriminatory and "opens the door to intolerance, hate, discrimination and abuse in law enforcement," Calderon said.
Rush Limbaugh gave a great description of what he called the "Limbaugh Laws". They are as follows:
(1) You immigrate to our country you have to speak the native language;
(2) You must be a professional or an investor...no unskilled workers allowed;

(3) No special bilingual programs in the schools;
(4) No special ballots for elections;
(5) No government business will be conducted in your language;
(6) Foreigners cannot vote or hold political office;
Popular VideoThis young teenage singer was shocked when Keith Urban invited her on stage at his concert. A few moments later, he made her wildest dreams come true:
(7) You cannot be a burden on society....no welfare, no food stamps or other government handouts;
(8) You can come if you invest here...an amount equal to 40,000 times the daily minimum wage;
(9) If you want to buy land, it will be restricted....no waterfront properties and you have to relinquish individual rights to the property;
(10) You're not allowed to protest, no demonstrations, no waving of foreign flags, no political organizing, and no badmouthing of our President or his policies; and
(11) If you come here illegally, you're going to jail.
Rush Limbaugh then asks if those are harsh, and he reveals that every one of the previous laws are actual laws in Mexico relating to immigrants...yet illegal Mexicans come to the United States and protest in our streets. Not surprisingly, other networks such as CNN and MSNBC (among others) slammed Limbaugh and made those laws actually his proposals for U.S. immigration laws, which was a complete lie.
My addition to this is that the Mexican government aids illegals by providing pamphlets in government buildings that tell people how to skirt U.S. laws and how to get handouts from the U.S. government.
Considering Mexico's actual immigration laws, it takes a lot of nerve for the Mexican President to characterize Arizona's law "opens the door to intolerance, hate, discrimination and abuse in law enforcement,"
Only in the United States would anyone do anything but laugh at him considering his own country's immigration laws. Only in the United States on the left side of the political spectrum, that is.
