So, a judge is allowing Mexico to sue Arizona over the immigration law. What do you think?

I personally do not understand how another country can have a say on how we decide the laws in this country.

  • Makes sense, it probably breaks a lot of US treaties. I know it would break at least 1 for sure.

  • It doesn't break any treaty. If it did, Mexico would be suing the U.S. not Arizona. The Arizona law is identical to U.S. Federal Law.

    The AZ law AND the Federal law both state if law enforcement personnel pulls someone over or they arrest a person, they can request proof of citizenship. In every state of the union, law enforcement personnel can already do that because of the Federal law.

    The Arizona law changes nothing, legally, except it is a state law instead of a federal law.

  • It would really help if people actually read and researched the law, rather than making assumptions about what is in it, and it's validity.

  • Great. Turnabout is fair play. Do Arizonans get to sue Mexico when their drug smugglers and other criminals cause damages in Arizona against US citizens?

  • I think a certain judge needs to be dethroned.

  • america would go even more broke if they really tried to stop it. And the Arizona law ithought involved something else, if thats all then no biggy.

    Every state asks for ID.

  • Maybe we should sue Mexico about the crappy way they treat Americans down there. Their immigration laws are much stricter than ours, and guess what? Mexican law enforcement personnel can demand Americans show proof of citizenship when they visit Mexico!

    Racist bastards! *sarcasm*
