Mexico Sues Georgia Over Illegal Immigration Law

Perhaps Georgia should turn around and sue Mexico for their much more stringent immigration policies

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

Exactly what standing do these countries have? Are they admitting that they send illegals to America?

    What I can’t figure out is what standing the other countries have to be a part of the suit at all.

    It doesn’t appear that the countries are filing an amicus brief. They are actual parties to the suit.

    If you remember, in lawsuits to see Obama’s birth certificate, people outside of the state of Hawaii were told they had no standing to file a suit. We can argue the merits of that decision, but if we take it at face value – that a person must be a resident of the state to file a lawsuit against a state government – how in the aitch ee double hockey sticks are foreign governments being allowed to sue a state?

    Citizens of the US can’t sue a state but other governments can?

    This is nuts.

    If this doesn’t get thrown out, then you know for sure that many of our judges are corrupt and anti-law.

    We have been seeing it growing and growing, from the gay judge allowing gay marriage and overturning a people-voted bill, a judge barring a state to monitor illegal criminals, to a district judge imposing her will upon a legislature…. etc.

    Our nation is no longer a nation of laws… but of men, money, and unions (but I repeat myself).

    We’re screwed.

    Had this thought.

    Since China has so many huge cities without any citizens, how about we allow China to come get our illegals to fill up their cities?!?!

  4. If Georgia needs to defend itself against “11 foreign countries” … why does Georgia need a federal government?
