But they obviously are personally affected by immigration laws quite a bit, so they are more active in that arena.

1) obviously they will have some expertise in this particular area.

2) They're not "here for immigration". Did you read the article? They are specifically speaking about how Mexican nationals are treated while in custody in the US. It doesn't really have anything to do with immigration in particular.

The question is why are we entertaining them in our courts? It really is a question to be asked. The U.S. needs to grow a backbone against Mexico, but with our relationship with Mexico and NAFTA, there is not much motivation to.
I think they have become even more emboldened to do so ever since our traitorous congress allowed the president of Mexico to vilify and dictate to our own government on our own immigration policies right on the congress floor. Really pathetic!

Why is a foreign country allowed to be involved in matters of U.S. law when they are involved for the sole purpose of trying to protect the rights of their citizens who are violating our laws? Let's call it what it is. Mexico is afraid their revenue stream will be in jeapordy if illegal immigration is curbed.

A) they're issuing opinions. They're not making the law. They're basically just talking about what rights people have when they're in custody. And note, we're talking about people who are ACCUSED of crime. Guilty until proven innocent isn't a concept that is only applied to US citizens.

Well, maybe, I'm not really sure what this "revenue stream" you're talking about is, but it doesn't have anything to do with this particular article in the OP since that article has nothing to do with curbing immigration (illegal or otherwise).

What have they done that you would consider "meddling"? I mean, specifically. Just showing up in court isn't meddling, I hope, because that would be a pretty useless definition.

You got it! Not to mention that they want to dump their poor, unskilled and uneducated on us to provide their social costs for them. I wouldn't be surprised if it is part of the "reconquista" agenda also.

What is this revenue stream? Mexico gets a kickback from obama for every one of their people that make it over the border?
