Local leaders observe immigration debate in DC
One day after the White House arrival of Mexican President Felipe Calderon, Laredo Mayor Raul Salinas says reaction to Calderon’s address was surprising.
In the President's speech, statistics were told of the over 70,000 weapons confiscated in Mexico over the last year, most of which are from the U.S.
Working together, according to Calderon, will go much further than working alone, and as Arizona’s controversial immigration law continues making headlines. Calderon noted the hard work Mexico has done to help solve the issues of undocumented workers.
While Congress has not agreed to take up an immigration reform law, local leaders hope Calderon’s efforts will make an impact.
