This is the kind of talk that even get fence sitters pissed off.  Here is the Mexican President during his State of the Nation address 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.

~~~

“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,” he said. “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.”

So the next time I head to Mexico I can put my foot down and declare that I am now in the United States?  Ok, maybe I won’t go that far but I will damn sure demand free medical care, some welfare from the Government, and while your at it, some free schooling.  Oh, and I demand you learn English because I damn sure won’t be learning Spanish.  The nerve of you Mexicans to try to push me to learn Spanish.

This commenter at Hot Air has it down to a mathematical formula:

Calderon states that “wherever there is a Mexican, that is Mexico.” Mathematically, then, Mexico consists of any set containing a Mexican. Or, a Mexican (Mn) is assured to be contained in the set Mexico (Mx), because the set consists of all locations where the number of Mexicans present is greater than zero.

So, we have { Mn ∈ Mx : Mn > 0 } — but we also know that the United States (Us) is not Mexico ( Us != Mx ). Thus we must conclude that Mn ∉ Us and the number of Mexicans in the United States is an empty set.

{ Mn ∈ Us : Mn > 0} = ∅

Therefore, there are no Mexicans in the United States. QED

Guess that means problem solved.
