Mexican President Felipe Calderon has said that Mexican illegal aliens in the United States are "symbolic hostages" of US presidential candidates and that they are being used as a tool to get elected. Now this should come as no surprise to anyone who pays attention to what Felipe Calderon has recently said and done, meddling in US immigration policy. It however does need to be noted that unlike hostages the world over these Mexican illegal alien "hostages" can actually leave whenever they want.
What a disgraceful statement from a disgraceful man who should stop focusing so much on the United States and actual take a care about his own country and developing it.
In other news, Elvira Arellano is on a hunger strike through December 12, 2007, the date of Mexican holiday "the feast of our lady of Guadalupe", demanding amnesty for illegal aliens in the United States. I personally find it quite hilarious. She has now been relegated to a simply crazy wacko since her garnered "fame" here in the United States as an illegal alien holed up in a "church".
Also threats from her group of holding an economic embargo against the United States are just as laughable. Their country would completely fall apart without the money coming from this country through the trade we do with Mexico. This just shows the lack of any intelligence within their "movement"
Anyway, here is a Lou Dobbs clip below covering these events and his commentary on them.
Lou Dobbs on Felipe Calderon and Elvira Arellano's Hunger Strike
It's like a stowaway who becomes fixated with the ship's captain who has her removed from the boat in the middle of her demanding "rights."
The only thing more bizarre than elvira are her supporters.

Okay, these are hostages who broke into the house, tied themselves up, and now protest they are being treated unfairly by the home owner who doesn't want them in the house?
Does a Mexican citizen, born and raised in Mexico, and is happy in his country, really feel victimized by the US?
