The ACLU, open borders, and el Presidente

Larwyn relays Jay's request that blogs link to the Top Ten Reasons To Stop The ACLU.

#6 may be reason enough for many folks:

6. The ACLU advocate open borders. Not only have the ACLU opposed the Minute Men, a group who are simply exercising their freedom of speech, protesting and stepping up where the government is failing, but they have helped illegals cross the border.

Larwyn continues by neatly tying #6 together with a disturbing post from Gaius at Blue Crab Boulevard:

...Mexican President Felipe Calderon's first State of the Nation speech delivered today:

President Felipe Calderon blasted U.S. immigration policies on Sunday and promised to fight harder to protect the rights of Mexicans in the U.S., saying "Mexico does not end at its borders." The criticism earned Calderon a standing ovation during his first state-of-the nation address.

There's more:

"We strongly protest the unilateral measures taken by the U.S. Congress and government that have only persecuted and exacerbated the mistreatment of Mexican undocumented workers... The insensitivity toward those who support the U.S. economy and society has only served as an impetus to reinforce the battle … for their rights."

He also reached out to the millions of Mexicans living in the United States, many illegally, saying: "Where there is a Mexican, there is Mexico..."

During the speech, Calderon began to shout, spittle flying as the intensity of his rhetoric increased. He went on to state that, because Mexican nationals can be found in nearly every country throughout the world, "all the world is Mexico! All the world, I say! There are no borders for Mexicans! We may cross into any territory, unannounced, and without documentation! Even the moon and the stars will be ours! Will be --"

Calderon's New Map of the World

At that point, the screaming Calderon was escorted off the podium and calmed with heavy doses of sedatives.
