Mexico on Tuesday filed a brief in federal court in Arizona supporting a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of a tough new immigration law, Mexico's ambassador to the United States, Arturo Sarukhan, said on his Twitter account.

    Seriously another country is using our legal system to protect illegal activities within this country.

    Sounds like we should make a trade. We won't have to enforce the law if they will come get the illegals. Of course, not all of them are Mexicans...hopefully they won't brutilize them like they do to illegal immigrants in Mexico.

    I bet ALL of you personally know an illegal immigrant. I also bet that NONE of you have the guts to call the police and get them deported.

    maybe if drug hungry americans can stop consuming drugs, then those drug cartels will no longer have to smuggle into the US and the illegals can go back to their country. Thats the reason why they are fleeing. The cartels are demanding money they do not have, or they kill them. they are fleeing to the US for a better life for their children and them. they are fleeing for a stable job. Research has shown for every job offered to an illegal, 2 jobs are created where most of the time, americans take.

      Robert, so Mexican drug cartels HAVE to smuggle drugs, like it's aright or something? They are violent criminals and they should be killed.

      because us drug hungry americans are consuming the drugs, the cartels are smuggling them. If we wount consume them then this should not happen. most people think illigals are all drug smugglers when in reality they are the victims. and GUEST i spelled it write , idk what happened with CNN server and the statement is not false. THANK YOU

      Well robert instead of blaming Americans for illegals entering the U.S. b/c of drug usage, maybe you should blame it on the Mexican government. Their government is held accountable for what is happening in their country. Dont try to push the blame on us, for the problems that Mexican citizens are experiencing due to the drug cartel. The only thing we are guilty of is letting illegal immigrants slide for so long. I've earned my citizenship the legal way and it took me 6 years. So why is it okay to let others take the short cut?

    What the heck? Our Country and Laws are becoming a joke under this administration. Just because Arizona is the first State to enforce the law, doesn't place it as a Mexican issue. This law is for all those who break the immigration regulations. NO ONE shall enter this Country and stay without the permission of the United States. Permission is given by temporary or permanent status, not by breaking the law and demanding rights not accorded to them by our laws. There is no reason for giving any law breaker rights accorded to those who followed the law. The predjudice hypothosis is only going to become reality if any particular group supporting the disrepectful behavior of invading our Country illegally continues. It isn't going to end with Arizona....

    Who the hell CARES what Mexico thinks of ANY of our laws. Are their immigration any less "discriminatory"? Hell, no – they are worse. Mexico should just STFU – they just dont want to lose out on the money that their illegals (and legals) send back home. How DARE they even have standing to file a brief.

    Yeah, Mexico get the F out of our business. Stop your illegals from coming through and we would not have to create laws such as the ones in AZ. If your illegal your illegal get out. why does it matter how we find out.

    America has a right to protect and defend it's own sovereignty. Unfortunately, we rely on "slack-jawed" politicians who are too weak to stand on principle. In colonial times, people "pledged" their lives and their wealth to become free and self-governing. Who is willing to do that now? A simple majority is needed to make our point known from every state house to White House, Any elected representative who does not act on behalf of the American people should be impeached.

    Well if we are going to get all upset about Mexicans trying to flee a country that is crime ridden to seek a better and safer life for themselves and there families here in the US we should start with our laws concerning Cuban immigrants who make it to land, why don't we send them back to cuba? Seems like a double standard to me.
