    Since when does Mexico get to decide what Americans policy is legal? If you want to help the situation, Mexico, why dont you work on securing your border from your side?

      "Mexico, why dont you work on securing your border from your side?"

      The borders of civilized countries are unidirectional, Tom. Only Cuba, North Korea and a handful prevent people from leaving. Emigrating is a human right.

      If the highest authorities of the USA are near the border and you decide to jump to Mexico, and somebody asks "Hey. look! What I you are going to do about it?" The immigration authorities will tell you: "Absolutely nothing. This is not a prison and anyone can leave at any time. Let Mexico worry about Tom."

      You are kindly suggested to go back to your high school and ask for a refund, BTW.

    Sense when does Mexico file in our courts? This is so out of hand, if obozo, give up golf and baseball games for a few and listened to what most LEGAL citizens would like, maybe we could get something done, from clintons admin and to now, nothing has been done, blanket amnesty for illegals is not going to cut it also. What a joke to have mexico, doing this.

    To Ramon,
    Yes all countries require a passport when you cross the border but that's when you're not a sleazy illegal that just sneaks in. What they're doing is requiring the U.S. to police inside it's borders. What else would you suggest, making it a third world country like Mexico is. We can't take in the world without becoming a third world country ourselves. We have a legal way to immigrate with set limits, there is a reason for that. No freebees

    wake up people dont you see what your government is doint to you. first rule of war is devide and conquer, i'ts easier to pushb an agenda if the country is seperated. Universal ID is what they are after, dont be surpised when your government tells you the only way to rid ourselves of this probelm is to create one id one currency one people. Then they have you in a cage like a rat, tracking our every move no more rights for the American people. WAKE UP AND START ASKING WHY. Illegal Immigration is not new but is convenient at this time

    hmm...Mexico doesn't like it, Mexicans don't like Mexico...hmm....something must be right about this.

    You know WHY? because these baby's ARE afforded money being citizens which amount to BILLIONS of free aid into Mexico that ahem...MEXICO can't provide and doesn't want to, so that their dirty politicians can line their pockets and file silly brief's to maintain the status quo....GOD FORBID, they actually FOCUS on fixing their dilapidated country so that the immigration problem resolves itself....play stupid games, win stupid prizes, unfortunately the U.S. population and Mexican population are paying for it. He Mexico STFU before we annex your sorry pilfering ass, and turn that economic cesspool the people run from into our vacation plaything.

    Lets see I am an American Citizen in CA, I went to Mexico for a vacation and had to show my "Papers" as Obama calls it "Passport as well as my Drivers Lisences" several times (think 4 just to get to resort when driving) to the federalies and was harrassed 3 times one time they acutally took the money out of my wallet before they gave it back. Then going to dinner I had to show my ID 2 more times at random check points.

    I am puzzled at how one from another country would be allowed to break the laws of our country/states and "NOT" have to show valid proof of citzenship is considered racial profiling.

    If you want to talk about racists, explain to me why any ethnicity other then white can form exclusionary groups yet soon as a group of white people try to do the same thing and use the same rules they are labled racisit or nazis, people need to grow up and look in a damn mirror.

    anybody who accuses another person of racists is the racists because thats the only thing they see.

    How funny is that! In Arizona when you get pulled over they ask to see your ID. In Mexico they ask for 50 bucks!

    Key words people!! Mexican CITIZEN (ambassador) and American STATE (Arizona). By what right does a Mexican citizen, representing his government, have to file a law suit in a FEDERAL Court(that's AMERICAN court) against an AMERICAN STATE. Any judge who receives this should just plain through it out. The Mexican government has no right to file against ANY STATE in our UNION. Please remove yourself and your opinion back to your country and by the way take Obama with you. He seems to agree more with other countries than he does with his own people.

    Mexico needs to clean its own house and make the country in to a place where THEIR CITIZENS want to live, work and raise families. It isn't the responsibility of the United States to support you.

    If our government took away the "anchor baby" rule you guarantee there would be a significant drop in illegals coming here.

    Since when does mexico come to our country, filing papers in our courts telling LEGAL citizens what they should or should not do, this IS NOT mexico, though through how many admininstrations that have done nothing about immigration, you may think it is. Have to stop this once and for all, to bad obama wont do what the majority ofamerican people would like, no amnesty and a shove back over the border to all illegals.
