Mexico, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and Peru filed court papers last week against the state of Georgia’s new illegal immigration law.
The ACLU and Southern Poverty Law Center had already filed lawsuits.
I had no idea that foreign countries could sue individual states until Mexico joined with our own federal government to sue the state of Arizona over their illegal immigration law.
Georgia’s law, which will go into effect on July 1, includes sanctions against those hiring and harboring illegals.
Those who oppose these laws insist that asking for identification will lead to discrimination and racial profiling. This is the same argument made against profiling people of Arab descent by TSA agents.
Why is it that America can’t learn from Israel’s considerable experience in this area? Israel’s TSA agents don’t waste time on Swedish grandmothers and 6-year-olds. They know who is most likely to attack them, and that’s who they target.
In the meantime, America continues to waste time, energy and huge amounts of money on meaningless searches and lawsuits that should have been kicked out of court as groundless.
