Mexican President Felipe Calderón on Wednesday criticized Arizona's tough new immigration law as "discriminatory," a rebuke of a domestic policy rare for a foreign leader to deliver on U.S. soil.http://www.usatoday.com/news/washington/2010-05-19-mexico_N.htm
Calderón's criticism was echoed by President Obama during a joint Rose Garden news conference held hours before Calderón was honored at a state dinner.
Meanwhile, in Mexico:
The Mexican Constitution regulates the ownership of land and declares that "within a zone of 100 kilometers from the border or 50 kilometers from the coast, a foreigner cannot acquire the direct ownership of the land." These areas are known as "Restricted" or "Prohibited Zones".Would it be okay with Calderon and Obama if Arizona (or Miami or New York City or San Diego or Los Angeles) simply declared itself "Restricted" or "Prohibited Zones" "within . . . 100 kilometers from the border or 50 kilometers from the coast"?
