As each day goes by, I feel like I am losing my own sanity as I read about the craziness against our people of America, our Republic. To even consider the idea that another country can sue one of our states is unthinkable. We are a sovereign country with state rights to protect its people and way of life. I can only imagine that the reason a federal judge granted this hearing is that bribery may be in the works. I can see no other reason. Surely stupidity can’t be the reason? Surely our laws would never allow such weirdness?
Mexico needs to start suing itself first since its laws are similar and even more demanding on illegal immigration. Then, they need to start suing all the countries of the world since they too have very stringent and binding laws on the said subject. It makes you just want to scream ENOUGH!!!! --DadJohnson
Mexico gets its a say in one of the lawsuits challenging Arizona's immigration enforcement law.
A federal judge on Thursday granted Mexico's request to be allowed to file a legal brief supporting the challenge. That means the judge will consider the brief Mexico submitted previously.
Mexico says it wants to defend its citizens' rights and that the law would lead to racial profiling and hinder trade and tourism. It also says the law would hinder work against drug trafficking and related violence.
Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer, who signed the law on April 23 and changes to it on April 30, has lawyers defending it in court.
In a statement issued last week, Brewer said she was "very disappointed" to learn of Mexico's filing and reiterated that "Arizona's immigration enforcement laws are both reasonable and constitutional."
"I believe that Arizona will ultimately prevail and that our laws will be found constitutional," Brewer added.
Brewer and other supporters of the bill say the law is intended to pressure illegal immigrants to leave the United States. They contend it is a needed response to federal inaction over what they say is a porous border and social problems caused by illegal immigration. They also argue that it has protections against racial profiling.Read more...
