HOUSTON (AP) - Mexican President Felipe Calderon says he respects U.S. laws designed to control illegal immigration, but he’s against statutes like Arizona’s controversial law that he believes unfairly go after immigrants.

Calderon spoke Wednesday evening to more than 200 Mexican immigrants at a community center in Houston. The speech was part of a daylong visit by Calderon, who also met with local business leaders and Houston’s mayor.

Calderon said he isn’t interested in promoting Mexican immigration to the U.S., but he wants to ensure that Mexican immigrants in the U.S. can live and work in dignity.

Calderon’s comments on immigration came the same day that the U.S. Supreme Court heard arguments over Arizona’s law, which requires police to check the legal status of people they stop for other reasons.
