Alabama Immigration Law Opponents File Complaint With Mexican Government, Say HB 56 Violates NAFTA

Editor's Note: Surprised to find the following story in Huff Post.
by Elise Foley, Huff Post: WASHINGTON -- The Service Employees International Union (SEIU) continued its fight against Alabama immigration law HB 56 on Monday by filing a complaint with the Mexican Department of Labor, calling the law discriminatory and in violation of the North American Free Trade Agreement.

The complaint is the latest in a series of efforts by the labor union against HB 56, which would allow many of the state's government employees, including police officers and school officials, to inquire about immigration status. Groups opposing the law have targeted businesses, asking them to call for repeal of the law because it could hurt their interests.

SEIU coupled with the Mexican National Association of Democratic Lawyers in issuing the complaint, which says HB 56 violates NAFTA's North American Agreement on Labor Cooperation. The law "contradicts key provisions of the [North American Agreement on Labor Cooperation] and has devastating consequences for migrant and immigrant workers in Alabama, as well as for all workers in the state," the group wrote in its complaint. . . .

The SEIU is part of a coalition -- along with the NAACP, the National Council of La Raza, the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, the United Auto Workers and the Southern Poverty Law Center -- that hopes to bring more businesses to the anti-HB 56 movement. The coalition is working to pressure foreign automobile manufacturers Hyundai, Honda and Daimler Automotive to publicly condemn the law. All three have plants in the state and could have an impact on Republican politicians who want to maintain good relations with business, the groups say. . . . Full Article

It is time to tell Mexico where to get off. Time to eject all the illegals and tell them that if they want to be citizens to do it the right way or don't come back. No free riders in our country.
