16 foreign countries have standing to sue Alabama! Evil US citizens have no standing except to say thanks to the many politicians who've made it all possible. We need some of those Rape Trees like they have in Mexico.
8/3/11, "Mexico, 15 other nations file briefs against Alabama immigration law," Montgomery (Alabama) Advertiser
"Mexico and 15 other nations filed briefs this afternoon against Alabama's strict new immigration law, saying it threatened the rights of their citizens and raised “substantial challenges” to the countries’ relationship with the United States.
"They want to make sure their citizens are treated correctly, and they have a sovereign interest in the way in which immigration law is carried out by the United States," said Edward Still, a Birmingham attorney who filed the briefs on behalf of the nations. "They want to have one immigration law and not 50."
In the brief filed in U.S. District Court in Huntsville, Mexico says it wants to ensure its citizens are treated fairly while in the United States.
"Mexico has an interest in protecting its citizens and ensuring that their ethnicity is not used as basis for state-sanctioned acts of bias and discrimination," the brief says.
Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Paraguay, Peru and Uruguay joined in a single brief this afternoon."...

The law also requires school districts to compile information on undocumented students; makes it a crime to give a ride to a work place to an undocumented alien; allows the business licenses of those who knowingly employ undocumented aliens to be revoked; makes it illegal to rent property to undocumented aliens and requires all businesses in the state to enroll in E-Verify by April 1, 2012.
About two-thirds of Alabama's Hispanic community has Mexican roots.Earlier in the day, Judge Sharon Blackburn consolidated lawsuits against the immigration law brought by the U.S. Justice Department, the Methodist, Episcopalian and Roman Catholic churches, and three dozen plaintiffs represented by the ACLU,
- Southern Poverty Law Center and
- National Immigration Law Center."
Examples of MEXICO'S IMMIGRATION POLICY:
Ecuadorean survivor among 72 murdered by Mexicans about 100 miles from Texas border Update 8/26/10: Top 2 photos of scenes from mass murder from El blog del Narco. Same source also notes 'minors' were among those murdered. And, that Mexican military at first did not believe the story of the one Ecuadorean immigrant who survived (above).
- 8/25/10, CNN: "One of the vehicles had been disguised to look like a truck from the Ministry of National Defense, officials said.
"This discovery once again demonstrates the extreme danger and violence that Central Americans face on their treacherous journey north, as well as
- Mexican authorities' abject failure to protect them," Amnesty International said.
"Mexico must immediately investigate this massacre, bring the perpetrators to justice and establish the identities of those killed so that their families can be informed."
- Wednesday's gruesome discovery came about a month after authorities in the neighboring state of Nuevo Leon discovered 51 bodies in nine mass graves.
In that instance, investigators found charred remains...where bodies were presumably burned in steel drums, the state-run Notimex news agency said."...
- Of the 72 were 58 men and 14 women. Many local killings are not reported for fear that police are in league with criminals.
- many Mexicans do not dare to travel on the highways in the state.
- Many of these kidnappings are never reported for fear
- that police are in league with the criminals."...
- judicial, police, and prison systems, investors now holding back:
- reforms to the justice,
- prison systems,
- where corruption is endemic."
