Mexico asks court to reject Arizona immigration law

Paul Davenport of the Phoenix AP reports that: Mexico is asking a federal court in Arizona to declare the state's new immigration law unconstitutional. Lawyers for Mexico on Tuesday submitted a legal brief in support of a lawsuit challenging the law.

The law generally requires police investigating another incident or crime to ask people about their immigration status if there's a "reasonable suspicion" they're in the country illegally. It also makes being in Arizona illegally a misdemeanor, and it prohibits seeking day-labor work along the state's streets.

Mexico says its interest is in having consistent relations with the United States shouldn't be frustrated by one state. Mexico also says it has a legitimate interest in defending its citizens' rights and that the law would lead to racial profiling.

Bill Smith, ARRA News Editor: When did Mexican officials become so brazen that they believe they have a right to interfere in matters between the Sovereign State of Arizona and the United States? While President Obama is busy being offended by a Rolling stones article, he yields to the effrontery of Mexico claiming all Hispanics in the United States as it's citizens.

The legal citizen's of the United States who just happen to be of Mexican heritage are not residents of Mexico. Those who are citizens by naturalization have taken an oath of allegiance to the United States of America. As for those here legally on work permits or temporary visa, they have nothing to fear from the United States but may well be in fear their home country - Mexico - where people are terrorized in their homes by drug cartels and at times by the their government.

As for those Mexican citizens who are in the U.S. illegally, it is very clear that neither the President of Mexico nor the Mexican government has been able to stop them from leaving (often fleeing) Mexico. In fact, the Mexican president has called all Mexicans living outside of Mexico migrants (unless they work for their government). The Mexican Government relies on the money being sent back to Mexico by illegals (and even legal residents) to their extended families. Mexico has been unable to provide jobs, protection and resources for Mexican citizens in Mexico. In addition, the Mexican government has not controlled the drug cartels in Mexico and the government is often seen as being in support of these cartels.

We hope the Federal Judge will see Mexico's legal brief for what it is 1) of no merit and 2) interference in the sovereign affairs of the Arizona and the United States.
