What Nerve! Mexico Sues Georgia for Illegal Immigration Law

Aztlan

Aztlan is the mythical ancestral homeland of the Aztecs and the declared objective of Chicano nationalists.

The fiscal burden of illegal immigration on U.S. taxpayers is substantial.
According to the Federation for American Immigration Reform, the average U.S. household is forced to pay over $1,000 a year to cover the educational, medical, prison, and welfare costs of “undocumented aliens” and their “anchor babies“. (1 out of 12 babies in the United States are born to illegal aliens!) That figure includes all of the tax revenues collected from illegals. Even after the taxes are tallied, illegal immigrants cost the United States over $100 billion a year.
In a time when so many Americans have difficulty making ends meet (the official jobless rate is 9.1%) and our national debt is over $14 trillion, we can even less afford this burden.
Mexico is the source for the bulk of America’s illegal immigrants trespassers. In fact, as many as 4 out of every 5 illegal immigrants in America are from south of the border. But the government of Mexico has the gall to sue the state of Georgia for a new law that only aims to enforce immigration laws that the Obama federal government refuses to enforce.
On May 13, 2011, Georgia’s Republican Governor Nathan Deal signed HB87, the Illegal Immigration Reform and Enforcement Act of 2011. The new law:

  • Bars illegal aliens from receiving public (welfare) benefits.
  • Permits police on a criminal investigation, including traffic stops, to inquire into a suspect’s immigration status in cases where the suspect fails to provide personal identification.
  • But in so doing, the police “shall not consider race, color, or national origin.”

Georgia’s HB 87 is modeled after Arizona’s oft-maligned SB 1070. But Georgia’s law will potentially affect more people, because the state has more illegal immigrants than Arizona.
After Gov. signed HB 87 into law, Mexico and 10 other Central and South American countries promptly filed legal papers against Georgia, claiming that HB 87 “substantially and inappropriately burdens the consistent country to country relations between Mexico and the United States of America…interfering with the strategic diplomatic interests of the two countries and encouraging an imminent threat of state-sanctioned bias or discrimination.”
This is the same government of Mexico that:

  • In 2005, distributed 1.5 million copies of a pamphlet instructing Mexicans how to stay safe while swimming across rivers and walking across deserts to enter the USA. (A Spanish-language PDF of that manual is here.)

Oh, by the way, Mexico (as well as the Obama administration) also has a lawsuit against Arizona.

I think in this case the taxpayers of the United States should be represented in a lawsuit against Mexico. This is ridiculous and if anyone thinks differently I dare them try going to another country and getting in for free an all expense paid life !

Being a Georgia resident, when I first heard of this lunacy, I turned to the southwest and gave them a double-barreled shot of the one-fingered salute.

Has any American thought to question the Liberals and Democrats, why they think the 1986 Immigration Control and Reform Act is broken? Is so, like any bill–why cannot be amended, as they are able with any law that passes through Congress? Again, the next question is why these people in the Senate are pushing for another Amnesty, when such an event would injure the American people adding to the bleeding national deficit. Even if the Congress found the votes to pass another Amnesty, isn’t it incredulously pathetic to add another 2.5 Trillion to the US treasury 14.5 Trillion dollars deficit.… Read more »
