Shame on the Democrats in Congress, led by Nancy Pelosi, who gave President Felipe Calderon of Mexico a standing ovation when he denounced Arizona for trying to solve its problems with illegal immigration.

Maybe nearly as bad was the day before when Calderon, flanked by President Obama, stood on the steps of the White House, voicing similar thoughts. Obama then called the efforts of Arizona “misguided.”

What is our country coming to? Shameful and sickening!
