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.
Get the U.N. and the IMF, World Bank, World Court and any other sovereignty stealing entity out of the U.S.A. and get U.S. out of THEM! Check out Ron Paul's statement to that effect:http://runronpaul.com/campaign-trail/ron-paul-at-the-rlc-2011-june-17th-2011/
It is the constitution.... not the UN charter that guides me!
Article VI of the Constitution says that treaties become the "supreme law of the land." The problem is that we keep making awful treaties with other countries. If we'd stop making treaties that say we'll let them sue, they won't have legal standing to do so. Unfortunately, this is part of having free trade agreements.
If we're going to keep free trade, we have to take this kind of bad with the good. If we didn't have the trade treaties that, unfortunately, allow this sort of thing we would also not have the affordable produce we import from Mexico. With so many Americans having trouble making ends meet these days, do we really want to make them pay more for groceries? American-grown and made products are too expensive for Americans to buy.
Of course we could solve the problem by getting rid of job-killing regulations like minimum-wage laws, paying the slackers on unemployment and making job-creators pay for employees' health insurance. If we got rid of those (and OSHA, and the EPA, and the SEC, and all of the other alphabet bureaucrats) I could afford to hire more workers and American products wouldn't cost so much that Americans can't buy them.
Free trade that is joke,Mexico has a lot of our jobs,what do they trade with us watermellons,Dugh.Tell them keep their free trade and send our jobs back here.We can get our own oil from our own land.Let us sue them for allowing their people to come over here illegally.Everytime we send some back, give Mexico a bill.
We can not allow this to continue,the judges need to shut this down before it gets started,and make them pay the court costs.
Mexico has ZERO authority to Sue any of these United States.
