Mexico condemns Arizona for immigration crackdown

Mexico condemns Arizona for immigration crackdown 28 Apr 2010 The President of Mexico yesterday waded into the dispute over Arizona's tough new law cracking down on illegal immigrants, saying it will breed hatred and discrimination and cause a breakdown in cross-border diplomatic relations. Felipe Calderón... claimed that the newly-introduced measure will "open the door to intolerance, hate, and discrimination and abuse" against the Hispanic community. It gives police the power, for the first time anywhere in the US, to stop and question people they suspect of having entered the country illegally.
