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.

    Can I file a brief in Mexico because they refuse to keep their border jumpers at home?!? F Mexico and I hope many more states follow suit and pass laws like Arizona. The law in AZ is no different than current Federal Law regarding illegals, with the exception that AZ will enforce it instead of looking the other way!

    If Mexican officials want the Arizona law revered, it must be a good law. Keep your damn wetbacks in your own country.

    At least Mexico has a simple economic policy: dump the poor and uneducated on another country.

    How is it that a foreign government has standing in our courts? I thought we took care of that when we won our independence. Mexico, you can say whatever you wish, but this is not Mexico, so use your own court system to stop the illegal crossing of YOUR border. Oh, I forgot, your courts and police have been infiltrated by drug lords.

    Why the H#@L is Mexico even allowed in a US Federal Court? ICE needs to start doing their job! All the more reason to allow the states to enforce immigration control...the feds can't get it done. Heck, the enemy is even in our federal camps (courts)....something is amiss!

    REALLY????? When are real Americans going to realize that we are living in Mexico??? Call an customer service line (Verizon, Dish Network, Dell, Microsoft, ETC...) The first option that is given is to receive instructions in Spanish. Our entire economy is outsourced to Mexico and other Third World Nations. Keep the jobs in the U.S.. I would gladly pay 5 times the price for any product, and know that I am supoorting my own Country.

    SKREWW MEXICO!!!!!! Donate to AZ legal Defense Fund here "http://www.keepazsafe.com/" Take back America from the ILLEGALS and the PUKEGRESSIVES!!!! Report suspected illegals and businesses hiring illegals here ("www.reportillegals.com") Make contributions to those fighting illegal immigration ("www.NumbersUSA.com") and ("www.FairUS.org") !!!!!!!!!!!!

    Merrily breeding their way to citizenship and having someone else pick up the tab, Latinos are now incensed that Legal Americans may in fact have the racist propensity to deem living in this country ILLEGALLY, against the LAW!

    Latinos need to grow a set of balls and fix the toilet that is Mexico instead of LEECHING off others! Fix your corrupt government! Stop the cartels! Stop being a bunch of spineless zeros whining about how poor you are and FLUSH the TOILET!

    Mexico has no business interfering in U.S. domestic affairs. For years Mexico has used the U.S. as a dumping ground to reduce its impoverished population. They encourage emigration to the U.S. illegally or otherwise. Mexico badly needs a socialist government that will look after the interests of the people, not the rich.

    Does Mexico even have legal standing in the US to make this request? Any lawyers out there?

    This is nothing more then Mexican politicians trying to stir up more trouble so that more illegal aliens can find there way to come to America ILLEGALLY. Close the borders already! Any and All illegalls should be sent back to their own Country. To be in America you should be willing to show any I.D. if asked. Those against it are those who are illegal or have family that are illegal. This is such an easy solution if anyone had any Guts! Mr. President!!!
