  • He said the law -- which requires police in Arizona to demand documentation from anyone they suspect of being in the United States illegally -- will subject Mexican citizen to discrimination. Mexico is hoping the White House will initiate a federal court action to block enforcement of the law.

  • "Calderón said, "I know that we share the interest in promoting dignified, legal and orderly living conditions to all migrant workers. Many of them, despite their significant contribution to the economy and to the society of the United States, still live in the shadows and, occasionally, as in Arizona, they even face discrimination."
