All you really need to know about the illegal immigration debate in about 2-1/2 minutes (UPDATED)

(OK, in about 7-1/2 minutes. Please scroll down for update)

Clip below is from Mexican President, Felipe Calderon's, address to a joint session of Congress yesterday.

Polite applause for airy and feel-good platitudes regarding U.S.-Mexico cooperation but check out what gets Congress out of their seats and rocking the aisles: slamming the Arizona illegal immigration law, natch (2:00).

Since the clip just shows Calderon standing at the podium, we can only imagine how funny it must've been for Congress to see dude waddle up to there to speak because of the basketball-sized stones he carries around. (Note the miserable hack who runs the Justice Department and Janet Napolitano, two people who admitted to not reading the bill, joining the pander-fest down in front).

And as long as we have merely an "immigration problem", you can count on any legislation generated by Congress will bare scant resemblance to actually enforcing our borders and enhancing our national sovreignty.

All the talk about paying a fine, getting in the back of the line, learning English, taking citizenship classes is just that. Talk. Congress has destroyed any credibility they may once have possessed. They are an utter failure as a legislative body and they are not to be trusted. If their lips are moving, they are lying.

Tom McClintock to Calderon: "Allow me to retort."

Quoting Teddy Roosevelt is now racist.
