Still the Enemy?
Democrats Agree With Mexicans

Obama Cabinet members applaud Calderon. Can you name the others? See larger image.
Glenn Spencer -- American Patrol Report -- September 14  
    Yesterday, Mexican president Calderon appeared at a memorial and described the 1846-1848 war with the U.S as an "unjust military aggression motivated by clearly imperialistic interests." "We lost because of the invasion and expansionist desires of our enemy, but also because of divisions among Mexicans," he said, according to the AP report. He called upon the Mexican people to unite.
    I believe Calderon deliberately used the term "enemy" to be in the present tense. A June 2002 Zogby poll found that 58 percent of Mexicans believe "The territory of the United States' southwest rightfully belongs to Mexico." 57 percent believe "Mexicans should have the right to enter the U.S. without U.S. permission."
    Within that context, on May 20 of this year we saw Democrats standing and cheering when Calderon stood before a joint session of Congress and attacked Arizona for attempting to enforce immigration laws. (28-second video clip)
    Do they agree that Mexicans have a right to invade the United States? Do they think the Southwest belongs to Mexico?
