United They Stand… June 22, 2010

Events are shaping up to provide some rather interesting scenarios in the near future.  Apparently Mexico has filed its own lawsuit against the immigration reform law in AZ. This brings up a rather interesting possibility.  Namely, we could, potentially, see a foreign government and our own government united in opposition to one of our own states laws.   Imagine THAT visual.  Representatives from the U.S. AG and the Mexican equivalent taking the stand and giving testimony against officials from AZ.

I mean, looking beyond the absurd notion that another country can sue a particular state in another nation (how is Mexico going to show that this law hurts them?… has anyone been able to answer that?), the fact that Mexico and the U.S. Government would have more in common on this issue than AZ is comical/tragic/horrific all at once.  I sometimes feel like our nation has slipped into another dimension or alternate timeline…  it just feels like something out of the Twilight Zone.  What is happening to us?  Why can’t our government stand up for its own citizens rather than those of other nations?  When did we become secondary citizens in our own country?

“In filing the brief, Mexico said it was upholding its duty to protect its nationals in the United States and ensure that they are not discriminated against based on their ethnicity.”

I had to reread that paragraph several times.  My mind simply could not grasp what it was reading.  Mexico has a duty to protect its own citizens in the United States?… really?!  Never mind the fact that they are here… what’s the word I’m looking for? Oh yeah!…. illegally.
