A few years ago, something like this would have been unthinkable. Not only one but ten foreign countries suing an American state because they do not like a law the state has passed. Not only is our Federal government allowing this, it is encouraging it.
ATLANTA (AP) — Mexico and 10 other countries have joined the legal fight against Georgia’s tough new immigration law, warning that the strict crackdown could jeopardize close ties between the U.S. and its Latin American neighbors.
The nations filed briefs late Wednesday in support of liberal groups who asked a federal judge to declare Georgia’s new law unconstitutional and block it from taking effect.
The filing marks a new phase in the legal showdown that has pitted Georgia’s attorneys against groups who had threatened to challenge the law even before it was adopted by lawmakers. Mexico’s move also echoes the legal strategy it pursued to challenge tough new immigration rules enacted by other states. Attorneys representing Mexico filed briefs challenging similar legislation adopted in Arizona and Utah.
Thanks to Obama, America is no longer a superpower.
Win or lose, this case "could" set a "precedence" of allowing foreign Government to sue over anything they chose.
If the courts even so much as accept this case, it could open the door to all our laws being challenged by some "foreign Government".
One thing about governments you have to understand, the reason they give you is never the real reason for their actions.
We bought our first house in Gwinnett County Georgia in 1993. Back then it was a beautiful brand new neighborhood. Great schools - life was good. By the mid 2000`s our great neighborhood had transformed into rental homes for the illegals. They lived 15 to 20 people in single family 3 bedroom split ranch homes. They had cars and work trucks spilling out into the streets sometimes blocking our driveway making it hard for us to come and go as we needed to. They urinated in their front yards in front of our children and played loud music all the time. They broke into our house three times in the last six months we were there. They even spent the entire week in our backyard pool when I took my family to FL for a family vacation and destroyed the pool and our pool toys. Well, we sold this house in early 2007 to an illegal who had BAD CREDIT and tried to use a FAKE Social Security Number. He recieved a better 30 year fixed mortgage than we could get being citizens with an 800 plus point credit score from Bank of America. BoA wouldn`t even off us a mortgage. We called the next day and was turned down. In 2008 we saw our old house back on the market online. It was for sale for exactly ONE HALF of what we sold it for. (Bank of America had to bailed out because of this kind of lending) I drove by to have a look at our old house that we loved so much. Windows were broken out and missing. Big holes in the interior walls. All the appliances were missing and the fireplace looked like they had been cooking in it for the entire year. The marble was stained all the way up to the ceiling.
Before we moved out of Gwinnett County we went to a Christmas function at my little girls school. We sat there and looked around as an interpretor talked every few minutes to translate what was being said to Spanish. We looked around and felt as if we were in Mexico City. The next day we learned our kindergartener was one of only 2 kids in her class who were citizens. 18 of 20 kids in her class were children of illegals and 95% of them spoke no English. We ran from Gwinnet County Georgia bacause of the illegal immigration. We are doing great in nearby Forsyth County Georgia. All of our neighbors look and sound like us. Honestly, this immigration reform in Georgia is well needed and I applaud it, but it`s about 15 years TOO LATE.
