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.
Not only is our Federal government allowing this
but the citizens are allowing this too.
I think Georgia should just tell them to stick it and not show up. Sooner or later a state is going to have to make a stand.
D.Watson, Article IV what section are you looking at it does not say anything like that? I suggest you look at Section III and IV of the Article you state. In fact Section IV guarantees all States of the Union protection against Invasion so I ask where for art thou Mr. Holder and Mr. President. What footing do they stand on absolutely none! As an Avid reader of our Constitution and Federalist Papers I can back up my words can they?
