Now we have the Mexican president trying to influence the American presidential campaign!

Government to finance public relations push to change American opinions

Mexican President Felipe Calderón has forcefully inserted himself into the U.S. presidential campaign, denouncing the candidates for demonizing Mexican immigrants and announcing that the government would finance a public relations campaign aimed at reversing Americans’ negative perceptions.

At a conference Wednesday of the Advisory Council of the Institute of Mexicans Abroad, the government’s immigrant assistance agency, Calderón lashed out at the “increasing harassment” and “persecution” of Mexicans in the United States, those there legally as well as illegally.

“My duty is to make an appeal, respectfully but firmly, to the candidates of the various political parties in the United States to stop making Mexicans symbolic hostages in their speeches and their strategies,” Calderón said.

I wonder how much of this is in response to McCain's change in position. He was a moderate that wanted to give long term residents a track to citizenship but in an effort to get his stalled presidential campaign restarted just changed to the hard line if they're illegally give them nothing.
