I heard about this one on Fox and Megyn Kelly was doing exactly what you say. She had some lawyers on, she is one also, who said exactly those things about how silly this is. Also, they mentioned the other nations who have been howling about this. UN foolishness, I think. They don't have any legal standing either.

Good Lord. You don't understand political gestures at all, do you?

They KNOW they don't have standing but it's about principle.

Can't believe I need to explain this.
How many of those birthers weren't citizens and voters in this nation. I know one of them who sure is both of those things and would be very unhappy if some judge told him that was the reason he couldn't force action that should have jarred something loose because of the Freedom of Information act. I guess it best I just keep howling here and let the judges play their games of protect the President at all costs.

Mexico has not filed a lawsuit against Arizona.

Mexico has submitted a brief in a pending lawsuit.

I don't think 1) They know the difference. 2) That they care if there is a difference. 3) They only care that they can try to persuade those who are quick triggered and can't read for themselves that what they put out is the actual truth, and not what is really the truth.

The truth is simple Mexico is openly against the Arizona's anti-illegal immigration law.
It doesn't matter if they file the suit or not.
I'm sure they would if they had the opportunity.

It does matter when that is what the OP is asserting.

So what if a foreign country doesn't like some American law.

Who cares? I mean, really, who cares whether Mexico likes a law in Arizona or not? What matters is if the law is Constitutional, and whether the people of Arizona like the law. I don't like the law, myself. But I don't live in Arizona, and as an American I only care that the law meet the Constitutional requirements.

I would care if a foreign country took an American state to court. But Mexico isn't doing that. So the OP on this thread is mistaken.

So what? They are submitting a brief in the lawsuit as opposed to suing the state of Arizona.....Does that negate the utter and complete hypocrisy of Mexico demanding we treat their citizens better then they treat them? That the US should lie down and passively pee because Calderon wants the US to continue to take in the flotsom of Mexican society?

Preliminaries always seem so much like the very trick to me.

Mexico on Tuesday submitted a legal brief in support of one of five lawsuits challenging the law.
