Mexico, 10 other countries file briefs in Georgia in suit over state’s new immigration law

By Associated Press, Updated: Thursday, June 16, 8:18 AM

ATLANTA — 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 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.

The law authorizes law enforcement to check the immigration status of a suspect who cannot provide accepted identification and to detain and hand over to federal authorities anyone found to be in the country illegally.

"Credibility in immigration policy can be summed up in one sentence: Those who should get in, get in; those who should be kept out, are kept out; and those who should not be here will be required to leave."

"...for the system to be credible, people actually have to be deported at the end of the process."

US Congresswoman Barbara Jordan (D-TX)

Testimony to the House Immigration Subcommittee, February 24, 1995

Nothing can be worse, other countries now dictate how laws are formed in GA.........

Why are these countries worried so much? Coz it is an expense for them to process and send their national back home which they dont want to pay.

They are ok if their nationals come in US and stay illegally and use the free resources at the expense of the American tax payers cost.

The thread header is off: No foreign nation has filed suit against the state of Georgia's illegal immigration law.

Indeed.

The lawsuit was filed two weeks ago by civil liberties groups.

Try fitting the original headline in the space allotted. But "you guys" would rather split hairs and b*tch.

If you can't even bother to be truthful with the OP, then why on earth would anyone bother to take this thread seriously? You altered the title to suit your own bias, as per usual.

"Civil Liberties Groups sue GA over state's immigration law" would have been more accurate (and is fewer characters)

Why bother to be accurate when you can sensationalize the subject by lying?

But to address the OP, I imagine they filed the briefs because remittances are important to their economy.
