Default Mexico Sues Georgia Over Immigration Law

ATLANTA -- Mexico and 10 other countries have filed amicus briefs in a lawsuit that asks a judge to declare Georgia's new immigration law unconstitutional and to block it from being enforced.

The lawsuit was filed two weeks ago by civil liberties groups.

Besides Mexico, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and Peru filed amicus briefs on Wednesday in support of the plaintiffs.

The groups are asking U.S. District Judge Thomas Thrash to prevent the law from taking effect until the lawsuit has been resolved. He's scheduled a hearing for next week.

The law authorizes law enforcement to check the immigration status of a suspect who cannot provide accepted identification and to detain and hand over to federal authorities anyone found to be in the country illegally.

If the USA won't serve as the socialized haven of 3rd world indigent migrants, who will?

I think everyone should be given citizenship. The unemployment rate among illegals is probably not that high.

Plus I don't want to go to jail because I don't have my drivers license.

At least it's Mexico suing us for wanting to uphold our own laws. Instead of Eric Holder suing us on behalf of our own President...

I dunno if it's any worse or better.

But I can see it now: countries petitioning the UN to overturn US state's laws...

Also, Mexican Immigration Law is stricter than ours:

But then again, we don't rely on their job market for our economy.
