Mexico asks court to reject Arizona immigration law

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.

    If I read this right, Mexico is supporting an already existing lawsuit, not bringing one of its own. Be interesting to know which one that is.

    I am actually not a liberal, in fact I am a registered republican, and like the "racist" argument your point is over used. I am also not against gun rights and many other republican ideas. My point has nothing to do with being dreamy it has to do with money. Our state does not have the funds to fight this law, enforce this law or have anything to do with this law. Most of the crime doesn't from illegal immigrants it comes from cartels and coyotes...you think this law isn't going to cause more turmoil and/or violence?

    This is ridiculous. The Mexican government needs to focus their efforts on fixing the problems in their own country so their citizens will actually want to stay. Not a great place to live, who can fault them for wanting a better life? They do however need to arrive legally, it is only fair and right.

    If these illegals want to stay here, give them a helmet and a pair of army boots and send them off to Afghanistan to fight for their country.

    Mexico needs to monitor their own borders and then Arizona would not need to enact laws that the government refuses to enforce. Perhaps Mexico should take care of their citizens and then they would not need to illegally enter the US. How funny! Mexico wants to ensure that their citizens can still enter our country illegally. What a joke!

      This almost seems like a non-issue. Who cares if Mexico wants to sue Arizona? We can just settle for 10,000 pesos, or roughly 12 dollars American. But seriously, if Mexico thinks were going to care at all about not letting in their citizens then maybe they should look back at the War in Iraq when we told the UN to mind its p's and q's while we attacked a country with hardly anything more than sand. Dear Mexico, blow U.S. Further, everyone who seems to have an issue with the greatest country in the world, we're fat, lazy, stupid, but more importantly rich, powerful, and better than you.

      So Jessica just because we want to enforce our laws, you have the nerve to try to encourage retaliation by banning oil trade? Just in case you dont know this but in order for the Mexican economy to even sustain itself, they have to trade! And even if they were to ban their oil from the U.S. it's not like we get the majority of our oil from them anyways.

    What has the US done in the past with Foreign Invaders?? That's exactly what these brownies are, invaders. We must defend our country against enemies foreign and domestic. If that means putting a cap in your bichass, I will.
    Bring it Mexico, I have lots of ammo.

If the officials at the border in Tijuana challenge me in any way I am going to cry foul.

No ID will I show to anyone and they had better now challenge me ...ever

    You gota be kidding me right? Mexico asking us (courts) to reject this law? Mexico needs to fix their problems, not hand them to us to fix. I can see it now, the Mexican American war of 2010.
