Mexico sues Arizona ???

Mexico on Tuesday asked a federal court in Arizona to declare the state's new immigration law unconstitutional, arguing that the country's own interests and its citizens' rights are at stake.

Lawyers for Mexico on Tuesday submitted a legal brief in support of one of five lawsuits challenging the law. The law will take effect July 29 unless implementation is blocked by a court.

The law generally requires police investigating another incident or crime to ask people about their immigration status if there's a "reasonable suspicion" they're in the country illegally. It also makes being in Arizona illegally a misdemeanor, and it prohibits seeking day-labor work along the state's streets.

Mexico believes Mexican citizens have the right to enter the U.S. illegally, and is suing Arizona on behalf of its citizens to protect that right.

Every America find Mexico's position and action offensive. And, in light of Mexico's immigration policy regarding its Central American neighbors, extremely hypocritical.

Of course, the Obama administration will probably applaud Mexico's "wisdom and bravery".
