Mexican President signs off on Obama non-solution

The Facts: Washington Post Reports that on one section of the Arizona border 168,000 illegal border crossers were detained over the last 8 months. How many made it through? Probably a lot more than 168,000.

So the State of Arizona tries to solve their problem. The result? President Obama scolds the people of Arizona for being racist but says he will send 1,200 troops to border. And those troops are going to do what? They will not be stopping anyone because the President of Mexico doesn't think this is a good idea.

You can't make this stuff up.

NOGALES, ARIZ. -- Along a rugged stretch of the Mexican border here in southern Arizona, U.S. authorities captured 687 illegal immigrants in a 24-hour period last week, three times the number captured near San Diego. During the past eight months, agents have apprehended 168,000 migrants along this sector of the border.
"If the National Guard helps toward a common purpose of having a safer border and if they can do this without detaining Mexican migrants, I think this (planned deployment) could bring about positive results," said Calderon, speaking through an interpreter.
