    Hey Mexico, please stay out of our nation's business. You know what? Stay entirely out of our country if you don't plan on legally entering.

    Ok, since when does Mexico have a say in OUR laws? Wait, they already do ... if a mexican national KILLS a U.S. citizen, then that person is rarely, if ever, sentenced to death row.

    And since when is mexico an authority on immigration law? The way they guard their southern border is one of the 5 most heinous violations of human civil rights in the entire world according to one study.

    I say we adopt mexico's immigration laws.

  5. Mexico is Questioning laws in the USA

    Since when do foreign countries dictate to us what laws should be enforced or not? Excuse me? Thought this was the United States of America where our laws come from Washington, not Mexico. If Mexico or any other country don't like our laws..stay away.

    Mexico continues to look towards its citizens fleeing poverty in Mexico by entering the U.S. illegally. It is clear that Mexico views the U.S. as a major solution for its own social and economic problems. On the other hand, the U.S.'s push for the NAFTA trade agreement has resulted in the impoverishment of many thousands of Mexican farmers, for example. For them it is better to risk the hazards of leaving Mexico for the U.S. illegally rather than stare.

    I see a whole lot of posts here claiming that illegal aliens are "taking our jobs" and "not paying taxes".
    Who exactly is giving them the jobs? Who exactly is paying them under the table? YOU.

    Perhaps the focus and punishments should be on those who hire these illegal aliens.

    DEPORTATION INTO MEXICO TO THOSE WHO HIRE ILLEGAL ALIENS!

    Since when does Mexico have the right to file anything concerning American law in our courts. What's the matter do they need the money? Why doesn't Mexico fix Mexico and then their people will not be coming here? Ah that's right, because they're so incompetent they can't! GO ARIZONA!! YEAH!!

    Mexico filed a brief? Mexico can go "F" themselves..In Arizona we can no longer travel safely on our highways without fear of being involved in an accident due to illegals smuggling other illegals and drug lords running drugs through our state. We wait for hours and hours at our local hospital emergency rooms because they have used them as their "free clinics". Our schools are over crowded and our own students have had programs cut and teachers laid off because money is being spent to teach them English and get them caught up with our students. Our social programs are overrun with illegals that have come over the border and signed up for everything and anything they can get. OUR TAX DOLLARS are taking care of them, feeding them, educating them, treating them etc. All we're trying to do is preserve OUR way of life...WE are the citizens of Arizona, not THEM. If they come into our country legally then we are all for their immigration, their LEGAL immigration. Mexico has no say in our country or our government....try going there as an "illegal alien" and see if you can get what they have taken from us here.

    The bars in our city are showing the world soccer tourny. They are showing only the American games, and the Mexican games. This is America, why show the Mexican games?

    Wait a second.... I have read none of the above comments, so I don't know if this has been stated already.... I am not American...BUT since when does the United States let a foreign power decide internal Policy. Arizona should tell them to $@%# $#&. Mexico should mind their own F@#$%$g business. Maybe take care of their own criminal society.

    If you don't live in Arizona be quiet. Let me ask a simple question to all of you: Is any portion ofyour State marked with signs, put up by the US Fish and Wildlife Services, that warns you not to enter due to "Human Safety Concerns". Well we do! The signs are in the Buenos Airies National Wildlife Refugee. Part of the United States that You own as a Citizen. – Not anymore, the Mexicans have take the area over.

    If you hate the bill, tough, you don't live here. it's not racist. It's for OUR SAFETY HERE IN ARIZONA.

    As far as I'm concern Mexico should keep it's f*H%@ nose out of our business and take back it's people.

    I'm no fan of this law, but how does Mexico have any legitimate standing in this case? I mean, come on, they are a foreign country!

    Are they filing on behalf of their people who are here illegally? I'm not sure that qualifies as legitimate standing, either.

    The only people who really have legitimate standing are U.S. citizens who feel the new law may cause them harm in some manner.
