As I'm checking some of the headlines just before going to work this morning one of the headlines that caught my attention was the following...
"AP- PHOENIX – Seven other Latin American countries want to join Mexico in supporting a lawsuit challenging Arizona's immigration enforcement law.
Bolivia, Colombia, El Salvador, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Paraguay and Peru filed separate, nearly identical motions to join Mexico's legal brief supporting the lawsuit filed by U.S. civil rights and other advocacy groups"
so the question that I'm asking, is why do these other countries care if we check to see if somebody is legally authorized within our own country?
what is the real reason behind it?
Or more importantly... what is it that they have to hide?
The only thing that the Arizona law does is it gives the state the authority to question somebodies immigration status when they are lawfully stopped by a local police officer.
Big deal... I got pulled over the other day for not using my turn signal in a lane change.
Not only did the police officer check my ID, but they also checked the ID of my passenger.
[maybe it was gender profiling since were both female]
so how is the Arizona law any different?
I guess my point is, with so many people that are upset over Arizona and now other countries who are wanting to join Mexico's lawsuit against Arizona...
What is really going on and what is it they have to lose?
