President Obama is in Mexico for the G20 Summit and received a warm welcome from Mexican President Felipe Calderon. How warm was it? Calderon thanked Obama for his illegal immigration executive order last week, or in other words, thanked him for not deporting people back to Mexico who violated U.S. Code by entering the U.S. illegally.

Mexican President Felipe Calderon praised President Obama on Monday for taking "unprecedented" action in moving to stop deportations of young illegal immigrants brought to the United States as children.

Calderon said Obama's move took "valor and courage" and that he's sure many families in the United States are appreciative of the president's action.
