Mexican Government to Join Law Suit Against Arizona, Obama AG Holder to File Next Week


Bosom Buddies … The Obama Administration and the Mexican government attacking Arizona over their Immigration law. Yet one more reason why Gov. Jan Brewer and Arizona did the right thing in passing a new immigration law.

It has been reported by ABC News that Obama’s Attorney General Eric Holder will sue the state of Arizona next week over their new immigration law signed by Gov. Jan Brewer. Holder will claim it is the federal governments responsibility to set immigration law, even though Obama refuses to enforce the present one that exists. So let us understand this … the United States government is suing a state for passing a law that emphasizes federal immigration law that already exists, but the federal government refuses to uphold and the Mexican government who does nothing to stop illegals and drug traffickers to enter the US is backing the inaction of the federal government. NICE! How screwed up is our border security and why is the federal government doing nothing to protect America? For Obama, its all about Amnesty.

Obama administration sources tell ABC News that Attorney General Eric Holder is expected to file a lawsuit against the state of Arizona for its immigration law, likely next week.

The suit has been expected for some time now. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told a South American television interviewer that the president had told the Justice Department to file the suit on the basis that it’s the constitutional responsibility of the federal government — not states — to set immigration policy.

However, it would appear that the Obama Administration has a friend that will also sue Arizona as well. Yes that is correct, as per The Weekly Standard, Mexico is going to sue the state of Arizona as well joining the federal law suit. Isn’t that special.

Earlier today, ABC reported that Attorney General Eric Holder will likely file his lawsuit against Arizona over its immigration law next week. Now, the AP reports: “Lawyers for Mexico on Tuesday submitted a legal brief in support of one of five lawsuits challenging the law. The law will take effect June 29 unless implementation is blocked by a court.”

Are you serious, a foreign country is going to tell the United States of America what they can and cannot do on their own soil to protect its borders, provide security to its citizens and stop the trafficking of humans and drugs? UNREAL. What is more unbelievable is that the Obama White House is on the side of the Mexican government.

The law generally requires police investigating another incident or crime to ask people about their immigration status if there’s a “reasonable suspicion” they’re in the country illegally. It also makes being in Arizona illegally a misdemeanor, and it prohibits seeking day-labor work along the state’s streets.

Citing “grave concerns,” Mexico said its interest in having predictable, consistent relations with the United States shouldn’t be frustrated by one U.S. state.

Mexico also said it has a legitimate interest in defending its citizens’ rights and that the law would lead to racial profiling, hinder trade and tourism, and strain the countries’ work on combatting drug trafficking and related violence.

“Mexican citizens will be afraid to visit Arizona for work or pleasure out of concern that they will be subject to unlawful police scrutiny and detention,” the brief said.

It will be to a U.S. District Court judge to decide whether to accept the brief along with similar ones submitted by various U.S. organizations

Mexico claims that a state sponsored immigration law will lead to Mexicans being subject to unlawful police scrutiny and detention. What, excuse me  my dear friends South of the border, but you must be getting this confused with your own state of affairs in Mexico. You are describing what takes place in Mexico, not the US.

“Each day, approximately 65,000 Mexicans are admitted into Arizona; and each day they spend an average of $7.35 million in its stores, restaurants, and other businesses,” says a friend-of-court brief filed by Mexico. But if the new law takes effect, “Mexican citizens will be afraid to visit Arizona for work or pleasure out of concern that they will be subject to unlawful police scrutiny and detention,” the brief says.

The law creates “an imminent threat of state-sanctioned bias or discrimination, resulting not only in individual injury but also in broader social and economic harms to its citizens.”

Maybe the Mexicans would like to check out their owm immigration policies before they decide to interfere with another sovereign nation.

BLITZER: So in other words, if somebody sneaks in from Nicaragua or some other country in Central America, through the southern border of Mexico, they wind up in Mexico, they can go get a job…
BLITZER: They can work.
CALDERON: If — if somebody do that without permission, we send back — we send back them.

This will assuredly come as welcome news to all those out-of-work Americans trying to sneak into Mexico for jobs.  Unfortunately, language barrier aside, Calderon got it all wrong.  Upon entering Mexico, immigrants must prove who they are, that they are mentally fit, and that they can contribute to Mexican society.  If they do that, they sign their papers, are given a number, and are allowed to entry into the country.  Failure to play by these rules carries a stiff penalty

  • An illegal immigrant who sneaks into the country, or fails to file his papers, will face fines, jail, deportation, or a combination of the three.
  • An illegal immigrant who forges his documents, or falsifies them by lying when he fills them out, will face fines, jail, deportation, or a combination of the three.
  • An illegal immigrant who takes a job faces fines, up to six years in prison, and deportation.
  • All immigrants must provide proof of their legal status if the authorities demand it.  Failure to do so will result, once more, in fines, jail, deportation, or a combination of the three.

      what a couple of sissy girl losers obama and his holder are. weak minds breed weak bodies. these two were probably beaten up at the playground every day for fun and then taken behind the gym
      and butt shot.

      It seems to me that Mexico has enough to do to straighten up their own country without bothering ours. Why should we want their illegals here if they are trying their best to keep them from coming back to their country.

      We should not be giving equal rights to anyone who breaks the law. That is what we are doing when we give legal status to illegals. Let them get a green card the way the honest people did that came from Mexico.

    4. 4 Donks on June 23rd, 2010 10:58 am

      I was a legal immigrant to this country and was issued an alien card (green card) and was told to have it on my person at all times because I would have to produce it if requested by police, employers etc. I did not find this onerous or disciminating. I asked to come to this country and must accept their laws or DON’T come.

      History repeats itself? Why Rome fell- The barbarians flooded across the boarders of Rome and the Roman military could do nothing to stop them. Rome did not have the infrastructure to support the barbarians.

    6. nurturer69 on June 23rd, 2010 11:08 am

      The Mexican President feels emboldened by Obama’s opposition to the Arizona governor. Illegals have come and gone with no oppostion in the past that they feel it is their entitlement to be here, illegal or not. And when the President of the United States says it’s a good idea, what’s to stop them?

      I read yesteray that cartel bosses are giving orders to shoot to kill any off-duty US police officers that make off-duty arrests and drug seizures WITHIN the United States. Sounds like a declaration of war to me. But then again, they can do it because of a pussy US president in power.

      They’re not going to recall ME are they?

    7. Sam on June 23rd, 2010 11:13 am

      I’m so disgusted and angry about this. He is not above the law. Sue AZ? They are insane.

    8. super dave on June 23rd, 2010 11:49 am

      Arizona better step up and tell osama hussein to shove mexico up his a$$, then more states will follow.if a majority of the states dissed obama and his thugs he would back down like the high yellow coward he is.

    9. Mexican Friend on June 23rd, 2010 12:27 pm

      This is a very easy issue. Don’t hire them. Don’t give them work, and you are not going to have illegals, or mexicans, latins, asians, etc. You people, make the work they do!. Right? No sues, no discussions.

    10. A Texas Grandfather on June 23rd, 2010 1:41 pm

      I suppose that the justice department under Holder considers Mexico another state and welcomes their help.
      Mr. Holder there are only 50 states making up the USA and Mexico is NOT one of them. In fact it is a seperate country that has no legal standing regarding any court in the USA. This may come as a suprise, since your boss believes there are 57 states.

    11. Its Me on June 23rd, 2010 2:03 pm

      God, I am getting so sick and tired of all this BS. I cant stand to look at anyone hispanic anymore. I cant wait until Nov. so I can try to vote a couple of times like some people do.

    12. Its Me on June 23rd, 2010 2:16 pm

      My wife and I are so pissed we are boycotting all Mexican resturants. I also will not let any contractors on my property who hire Hispanics legal or not. I dont trust any of them!!

    15. Brenda on June 23rd, 2010 3:17 pm

      Dear nurturer69,

      YES, he IS emboldening the enemy and providing comfort TO THEM which IMO is a treasonous offense and he should pay the price. He is the biggest traitor this country has ever seen in the White House.

      He WANTS us to fail so he can glory in the fact destruction of a Christian nation was carried out by a muslim (who is nothing more than a half-breed bastard child of a marxist whore and a foreigner, and of course dear Barry didn’t even grow up in America for the most part!)

    16. Brenda on June 23rd, 2010 3:18 pm


    17. Brenda on June 23rd, 2010 3:20 pm

      …coming HERE that is. Can we do that? ask for the money back? Hey, they send sex offenders, theives, rapists, murders…and when one of those illegals KILLS an American in their unregistered vehicle without any insurance OR a valid driver’s license, Mexico should pay, right? I say YES>

    18. Magnatron on June 23rd, 2010 3:39 pm

      To me the evidence indicates a slow-motion coup d’etat in which case Obama is the domestic enemy our troops are sworn to defend against. Destroying the treasury, nationalizing healthcare, defunding the military, interfering and sometimes prohibiting citizen clean-up efforts in the Gulf of Mexico, denegrating America’s greatness in speeches overseas, undermining alliances with other nations, funding terrorist training camps (including 2 billion to Hamas), keeping the borders forced wide open to terrorists and illegals – and just today eliminating the most competent general in the US military.

    19. danny on June 23rd, 2010 4:02 pm

      I don’t understand how Arizona can constitutionally be allowed to enact legislation regarding immigration when that power was granted exclusively to the Federal Government. If anyone has a better understanding of American Constitutional Law than I do . . . please explain.

      It is my understanding that the democratic process was enacted for just such an occasion. (e.g. Constitutional Amendment).

    20. LilPuma on June 23rd, 2010 5:09 pm

      19. Danny, it’s not about our Constitution. It’s about what Obama can get away with, including doing more harm to this country with his ideological agenda. He wants a strong minority voting base to implement his full agenda. That would include many African Americans, many far left progressives, and 12 million illegals along with a large percentage of the Hispanic vote. Unfortunately, his ideology does not incude keeping America strong; it does include giving him as much power as he can get.

    21. Brenda in Virginia on June 23rd, 2010 5:21 pm

      Hey there Danny, I like Section 8 where it says:

      To provide for calling forth the militia to execute the laws of the Union,, suppress insurrections AND REPEL INVASION.

      Ummm…illegals coming in my the millions is an INVASION. I don’t think you need to understand much about the Constitution to freaking get that dude.

      Even better, how about Article III, section 3:

      Treason against the United State, shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, GIVING THEM AID AND COMFORT. No person shall be conviced of treason unless on the testimony of two witnesses to the same overt act, or on confession in open court. The Congress shall have power to declare the punishment of treason, but no attainder of treason shall work corruption of blood, or forfeiture except during the life of that person attained.


      OK, so ILLEGAL aliens regardless of where they came from are criminals. Period. There is NO grey area there. Obamanation wants them to have amnesty, free education, free health-care on OUR tax dollars while WE THE WORKING CLASS get Zero? Hmm…HIGH treason is what Obama does as President and nothing more. As for the 2 witnesses…I’d say billions if you include the entire world that is watching!

    22. Buster on June 23rd, 2010 5:28 pm

      obamanos sucks worse than anything that ever sucked before !!!

    23. Waterboy on June 23rd, 2010 8:28 pm

      Why can’t Arizona file a lawsuit against Mexico for reimbursement of:
      1. Delivery of babies to illegal Mexican women.
      2. Cost of education illegals and children born to illegals
      3. Cost of crimes committed by illegals
      4. Cost to feed and house illegals in Arizona jails and prisons
      5. Cost to defend indigent illegal criminals in the Arizona court
      6. Cost of health services to illegals
      7. Cost of cleaning up the mess they have made
      8. Cost of rehab for Americans addicted to Mexican drugs
      9. Cost of the use of Arizona parks by illegals
      10. Cost of automobiles and injuries caused by uninsured and
      unlicensed illegal Mexicans.
      11. Cost of the loss of life and property that drug cartels have
      ravaged on the Arizona people.
      12. Cost of the environmental impact on State properties.
      13. Cost to catch illegals, feed them, house them, process them,
      and ship them back to Mexico.

      Doesn’t Arizona have a lot more to gain in a lawsuit against Mexico?
      They can sue the Federal Government for all of the above for failure to enforce the laws that are on the books.

    24. kitty on June 24th, 2010 5:10 am

      “Ditto, ditto, ditto!”

      14. reimbursement for the desecration of National Forests for their drug cartels to grow and distribute pot.

      15. include all 50 States in the lawsuit.

      …. more to follow…

      [...] with an Obama Administration that is going to tale on the oil companies with a moratorium and Arizona with immigration law all while the American people stand opposed to the Obama agenda. Share [...]

      I’ve spent a bit of time traveling around Mexico and Central America, both on motorcycle and by auto. I’ve probably gone through 50 or more checkpoints in Mexico and usually have to produce a passport and vehicle paperwork. In Guatemala and Belize, I only got checked at the borders. Costa Rica and Panama both have occasional checkpoints. In Cuba, you are liable for a passport check at any time. However, Mexico is by far the worse with their checkpoints at most Mexican State borders as well as some temporary checkpoints. I think it is ludicrous for Mexico to complain about an Arizona law that is much less restrictive than their practices.

    27. NGBoston on June 24th, 2010 10:52 am

      #12—Seriously, your statement is meant to spur yet another race debate. Typical Race Baiter!

      {Start by taking the suggestion and boycotting the dumb-ass Democrats, then taking proper action when you vote this year in your State or in 2012.}

      Some liberals come on here an bitch that this Website is too far to the right or too conservative. Most of us who are moderate to right who blog here believe that your liberal bleeding heart views make no damn sense anyway- then you post a comment like that? So, which is it? Are you for or against Immigration Reform & if you are such a extreme right Democrat—how can you post a comment like that?

      Stick to the topic at hand, and grow up with the inflammatory statements.

      It’s all about proper and necessary IMMIGRATION REFORM. As another poster points out:

      ” There only 50 states making up the USA and Mexico is NOT one of them. In fact it is a seperate country that has no legal standing regarding any court in the USA. ”

      So Mexico can piss and moan all they want and join in a bogus lawsuit, IMO—it means nothing but more of waste of our DOJ’s time and federal budget. This is bullshit!

      Your rant implies you are intending to make those Mexicans that are here LEGALLY, running legitimate businesses pay the price ?? So, what happened to your liberal democratic views all of a sudden? You are a hypocrite and you can’t have it both ways, Dude.

      Illegals IMMIGRANTS are exactly that—-ILLEGAL! Those here ILLEGALLY, and especially those who commit crimes are the ones you should reserve your boycotting & fake posturing for as you mentioned in the last part of your post.

      Just calling you out on your race baiting and keeping it real.

    28. Whyspurr on October 19th, 2010 1:55 pm

      I’m sorry. The 11th Amendment of our Constitution specifically forbids Mexico from suing Arizona.

      “The Judicial power of the United States shall not be construed to extend to any suit in law or equity, commenced or prosecuted against one of the United States by Citizens of another State, or by Citizens or Subjects of any Foreign State.”
