    Eleven foreign countries, including Mexico and Brazil, are suing the state of Georgia for its law cracking down on illegal immigration.

    Georgia State Representative Matt Ramsey who says that "All we're trying to do is see the enforcement of American immigration law occur, which is incidentally, compared to Mexico, is liberal and welcome."
    Ramsey says the law is intended to protect the state's economy because taxpayers are subsidizing half a million illegal immigrants in Georgia via public schools, law enforcement and health care costs.

    You'd think there was some sort of European Union agreement between the US and the rest of the Americas.

    But what are you going to do?

    Perhaps the US should counter-sue Mexico over their Immigration laws ?
    Mexico don't make no bones about herding people up and shipping them back across their border and they're pretty rude about it when they catch people coming into their country.
    Hypocrites.

    It would be really funny if chicanos started opposing illegal immigration...because of Chinese immigrants.

    Does it really need to be said that the headline is wrong? It's a FoxNews one after all.

    Mexico, Brazil and the other 9 countries aren't suing Georgia. They filed amicus briefs supporting an existing lawsuit. http://www.washingtonpost.com/national/mexico-10-other-countries-file-briefs-in-georgia-in-suit-over-states-new-immigration-law/2011/06/16/AGfk3FXH_story.html


    An amicus brief is filed by a non-party with some interest in a case who presents legal arguments in support of some legal issue.

    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.

    Yeah why should America have the right to have any sort of immigration laws?

    So let's get this straight, utherpendragon. You're claiming that eleven foreign countries are suing the state of Georgia, whereas in fact... they aren't. And you now concede that those countries are, in fact, not suing Georgia?

    So your chosen thread title "Mexico Sues Georgia over Immigration Law" is misleading then.
