Mexico urges U.S. court to block parts of Arizona’s SB1070 Immigration Law

The Mexican government has implored a U.S. court to block part of Arizona’s controversial immigration law, SB1070.

Lawyers for Mexico asked the 9th Court of Appeals in Wednesday’s filing to uphold a current lower-court ruling that prohibits the police from enforcing the part of the statute that bans harboring undocumented immigrants, according to an jan brewer with Obama AP report.

The friend-of-court brief from Mexico claims the ban “harms diplomatic relations between the United States, undermines the U.S.’s ability to speak to a foreign country with one voice and encourages the marginalization of Mexicans and people who appear to be from Latin America,” writes Jacques Billeaud of the Associated Press.

“Mexico cannot conduct effective negotiations with the United States when the foreign policy decisions of the federal governments are undermined by the individual policies of individual states,” lawyers said in the brief.

Arizona Governor Jan Brewer asked the appeals court to reverse Judge Susan Bolton’s ruling on the harboring ban.

A spokesman for Brewer, Matt Benson, said that Mexico had no business interfering with a matter in U.S. courts, according to AP.

“Mexico’s own immigration laws are significantly more heavy-handed than anything imposed as a result of SB1070. Does the Mexican government believe the nearly identical U.S. federal law harms diplomatic relations between the U.S. and Mexico?” Benson said.

This is not the first time Mexico has inserted itself into U.S. immigration issues by legal means.  They were joined by 10 other Latin American countries to urge the courts to declare SB1070 unconstitutional in 2010. No other countries were included in the current filing.

    FOR THOSE OPPONENTS WHO STATE THAT ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION DOESN'T” COST TAXPAYERS? THIS IS ONLY ONE OF CALIFORNIA MAJOR CITY PAYOUT IN PANDERING TO ILLEGAL ALIENS. OVER A $113 BILLION DOLLARS AND RISING ANNUALLY, THAT IS BEING SWALLOWED UP ACROSS THIS SOVEREIGN LAND AND “YOU” ARE PAYING FOR IT.

    HOW MANY DOLLARS ARE TAKEN IN TAXES TO PAY FOR YOUR ILLEGAL ALIEN INVASION IN YOUR PRINCIPLE CITIES?

    PRIME EXAMPLE, LOS ANGELES COUNTY – Year-end closing 2011 figures from the Department of Public Social Services reported that over $646 million in welfare and food stamp benefits were issued to illegal alien parents for their native-born children, announced Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich. The $646.2 million consisted of $258 million in CalWORKs (welfare) and $388 million in Food Stamps) — a $21 million increase over the previous year. “With the $550 million for public safety and nearly $500 million for healthcare, the total cost for illegal aliens to this one County taxpayer exceeds $1.6 BILLION dollars a year,” said Antonovich. “These costs do not include the hundreds of millions of dollars for education.” Each of the 50 states citizens and legal residents need to contact their Representative, specifically the governors, state Senators and the Liberal State assembly and demand no more illegal alien pandering, or State taxpayers will be taxed even more from now to doomsday.

    Why are the politicians who are supposed to have our protection in mind, for the people who pay their salaries not voting for the LEGAL WORKFORCE BILL, which is part of the E-Verify Provision? We must eliminate this fiat BIRTHRIGHT CITIZENSHIP, by the enacting an Amendment to Senator Kings 14th Amendment bill. Only offspring with a parent, who holds a legal right as a citizen, will be able to gift citizenship to that baby. Not satisfied with the amount of free money they receive, food stamps, vouchers for housing and a whole list of other freebies, including cash money they are even cheating the taxpayers using their own child tax credits. The IRS estimates the amount of 7 Billion this year. It’s laughable that a jerk like Senator Harry Reid and his subordinates are ignorant of the fact, that even children outside of the jurisdiction of the U.S. are collecting this fraudulent money.

    CUT OUT ALL PUBLIC ENTITLEMENTS AND WATCH THEM GO HOME?
