Obama Hosts Second State Dinner

President and Mrs. Obama are hosting his second State Dinner tonight in honor of Mexican President Felipe Calderón and wife, Margarita Zavala, but there were no gatecrashers this time:

“Some of them were still clutching their embossed invitations, proof that they belonged. They had already been asked their names once, twice, three times to make sure they were actually on the list.

And as the guests for the second state dinner of Barack Obama’s presidency arrived on Wednesday night, the White House tried to purge the memories of the uninvited guests at the first state dinner. What were their names again? Forgotten, White House officials hoped, in the mists of Washington trivia.

“I’d say things are pretty secure around here,” Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood said.”

How did they manage it? By refusing people who did not have their identification papers:

“Kathryne Mudge, right, and her husband, Arturo A. Valenzuela, assistant secretary of state for Western Hemisphere Affairs, leave a checkpoint after discovering Mudge did not have her identification for the State Dinner at the White House in Washington, Wednesday, May 19, 2010. They returned about an hour later with the ID and were allowed into the affair that President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama held for their Mexican counterparts, Felipe Calderon and his wife, Margarita Zavala.”

Questioning and turning away Mexicans/Americans because they don’t have papers?

  8. Well, it’s good thing Kathryne Mudge wasn’t out walking her dog or taking the kids out for an ice cream cone. Why, if she was spotted in the company of and obvious Hispanic, without her papers in hand she might have been deported to whatever backwater it is where they don’t spell Katherine correctly.
