Congressman Tom McClintock (R-CA) gave an eloquent and astute response to Pres. Calderon’s rude interference in a sovereign nation’s domestic issues while speaking to a joint session of Congress.
Congressman Tom McClintock Representing The 4th District of California
I rise to take strong exception to the speech of the President of Mexico while in this chamber today.
The Mexican government has made it very clear for many years that it holds American sovereignty in contempt and President Calderons behavior as a guest of the Congress confirms and underscores this attitude.
It is highly inappropriate for the President of Mexico to lecture Americans on American immigration policy, just as it would be for Americans to lecture Mexico on its laws.
