Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer has responded in federal court to a friend-of-the-court brief filed by Mexico and 10 other Latin American countries regarding the state’s new immigration law.

In the filing Wednesday, Brewer says Mexico is interfering with a dispute in the U.S. and has other forums to issue political opinions than federal U.S. court.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals gave the foreign countries permission to present their viewpoints.

Brewer’s lawyers told the appeals court that the opinions of foreign countries have no bearing on whether the law is constitutional.

Mexico was joined in its brief by Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Paraguay and Peru.

  1. Narc-xico has no business sticking their cocane drenched nose into America lawmaking or courts.

    Maybe these pot banging drama queens they pass off as a government in Narc-xico should send emergency letters to the UN requesing blue helmeted troops to help take their country back from the drug cartels before doing such lame grandstanding to divert attention away from the lawless state that exists south of the AZ and US borders….

  2. Seriously?? WHAT the HECK So I guess we can and should file briefs on the goings on of random sovereign countries?

    Here’s a suggestion Crackexico Clean up your own despicable, corrupt, morally bankrupt ‘country’ FIRST before you EVEN tell us anything. WHY THE HECK do you think your citizens are leaving your low rent country to come here?? Cause they’re afraid to stay in your **** world mismanaged, out of control lame excuse for a country.
