How should we feel about other countries sticking their nose in our business?

CNCnews --

Lawyers for Mexico Tuesday asked a federal court in Arizona to declare the state's new immigration law which will take effect July 29 as unconstitutional arguing that the country's own interests and citizens are at stake.

"Citing "grave concerns," Mexico said its interest in having predictable, consistent relations with the United States shouldn't be frustrated by one [and at least 17 more to follow] U.S. state.

Mexico also said it has a legitimate interest in defending its citizens' rights and that the law would lead to racial profiling, hinder trade and tourism, and strain the countries' work on combating drug trafficking and related violence.

"Mexican citizens will be afraid to visit Arizona for work or pleasure out of concern that they will be subject to unlawful police scrutiny and detention," the brief said.

Governor Jan Brewer and other supporters' say the bill (law) is intended pick up where the federal government has failed in enforcing immigration laws and to pressure illegal immigrants to leave the United States. Opponents of the law argue that the Arizona law and others like it lead to racial profiling.

Mexico's President Felipe Calderon stated on June 8 at the law "opens a Pandora's box of the worst abuse in the history of humanity..."

well, how does it feel?

Having another country tell us what laws that we should have or not have in our own country.

Of course, we (the United States) do that all the time to other countries.

However, in this case, the Arizona law and other communities that are following suit with their own versions of the law have obviously struck a nerve with Mexico as they are worried about the financial impact to their own country as Americans are finally starting to stand up and insisting that if you're going to be in this country, that you do so legally.

Not too much to ask I think.

In addition, Americans are finally starting to tell the politically correctness crowds that we no longer have to be afraid to speak up.

If Mexico is really concerned about the possibility of racial profiling or abuse of their people, then I would highly suggest that Mexico join forces with the United States and be serious about securing the border and working with us instead of against us.

The US government may feel differently about this, but the people of the United States (the real government) would consider Mexico's involvement in a border security as a great gesture on their part.

"Mexico's President Felipe Calderon stated on June 8 at the law "opens a Pandora's box of the worst abuse in the history of humanity...""
I guess that Calderon is not a history major. Or maybe all those drugs down there have clouded his memory. He seems to not remember the Crusades, two World Wars, Vietnam, slavery, South African apartheid, the Killing Fields etc. etc. Come on Felipe have a little perspective. Americans aren't as dumb as you think.

Excuse me?

How does a foreign power have standing in American courts?

Keep up the good fight and pray that SCOTUS finds the law constitutional.

You mention that the Arizona law struck a nerve with mexico.... I hope it is strking a nerve in america as well!!! I hope many more than 22 states will also wake up and realize it is time to start telling the feds to wake up... First I believe the federal government is trying to micro manage all the states (this must stop). Arizona has the fortitude to stand up to the federal giant, and more power to them. Now lets see the rest of the states (all of them) follow suit. As for mexico, ---Mexico also said it has a legitimate interest in defending its citizens' rights and that the law would lead to racial profiling, hinder trade and tourism, AND STRAIN THE COUNTRIES' WORK ON COMBATING DRUG TRAFFICKING AND RELATED VIOLENCE.---- ya! Like your doing such a great job on that right now.
I feel its time that individual state start standing up for themselves. Its also time for the great state of OREGON to tighten its belt and start working on ways to do all things for efficiently... government and citizens...
