Obama, Calderon Push For Immigration Law Changes

Obama, Calderon push for immigration law changes | Reuters

Excerpts: Obama said the Arizona law underscored the need for comprehensive immigration reform and reflects U.S. frustrations, which he shares, with current law.

"In the United States of America, no law-abiding person -- be they an American citizen, a legal immigrant, or a visitor or tourist from Mexico -- should ever be subject to suspicion simply because of what they look like," Obama said....The United States needs a new law that secures the border, targets businesses that hire illegal workers and punishes illegals, but gives them a path to citizenship, Obama said. He asked for support from opposition Republicans to pass one....

The two countries broadly agree on issues like the global economy and climate change, despite tensions over immigration, border security, drug violence and trade. Their trade surpasses $1 billion a day, and Mexico sends 80 percent of its exports to the United States....

The two presidents said they would cooperate to crush drug gangs. The joint statement said the United States would speed delivery of helicopters and other aircraft for the drug fight. The traffickers' turf wars and battles with federal forces in Mexico have killed 23,000 people since Calderon took office in December 2006 and launched an army-backed offensive....

The countries are more closely aligned on the issue than they have been in years, and Mexico is pleased Washington acknowledges that U.S.-made weapons and U.S. demand for drugs are big parts of the problem. Read more.

Yeh, the biggest people to benefit from "war on drugs" are the people who seek employment for the police force, lawyers, jails and courthouses, contractors who build jails and couthouses, automobile makers, gun manufactures, advertisers, newspapers and broadcasters, the pharma companies (the real drugs you should be worried about), and the man who marks up the profit on rolling papers.

But if we were to legalize it, then a great many many more would make money $$$. And I am speaking of marijuana, the rest of the drug use is found at minimal. Our jails are filled with minor abuse of a minor substance like mary jane. Legalizing it during these times of our economy would be no different than George washington telling us to plant a crop in our back yard for cash during upcoming bad times. And al these policemen can now switch jobs and work on the pot plantation. The law makers can help us think of scary advertisement that gets the buyer's attention. And the judges can judge which strains of hemp are best for making ropes, clothes, medicine, and recreational use (to replace beer. Meanwhile, us citizens will make a boat load of money. And the citizens would save boat loads of money from NOT spending on what seems psychotic, to try and stop something that has existed since the creation of man. to self medicate or seek distraction from ones misery from another.

The amount of money spent on the war on drugs, far exceeds the total street value of all illicit drugs in the world. You do the math, but by all means; smoke a joint or drink a beer while doing it.

Watch ‘Mike Ruppert tears apart 9/11' on Youtube :

This is the first of 15 parts. Mike Ruppert is a former LAPD narcotics officer who got the goods on the CIA for drug trafficking and when they found he couldn't be corrupted they tried to assassinate him, twice, and have done their best to make his life a living hell. I knew quite a bit of this already, but what I didn't know helped the rest to fall into place.

No Amnesty for illegals, criminals.
