Mexican Government Unhappy with SCOTUS Ruling On AZ Immigration Case

Mexican Government Unhappy with SCOTUS Ruling On AZ Immigration Case

The Mexican government is unhappy with the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling on the constitutionality of Arizona’s S.B. 1070 law–a ruling that was, on the whole, favorable to illegal immigrants.

According to CBS, Mexico’s Foreign Relations Secretary said the country was disappointed that the ruling allowed police officers to ask the legal status of anyone they reasonably believe is illegally in the country after that person is apprehended for another crime. 

Mexico actually filed a “friend of the court” brief challenging the constitutionality of S.B. 1070 before the case was argued before the Supreme Court, and the Mexican government, according to CBS, has openly “opposed Arizona’s immigration law since it was passed in 2010.”

Mexico’s complaints about America’s rather lax immigration laws stand in stark contrast to the treatment Mexico gives Guatemalan illegal immigrants. Guatemalans, who are to the south of Mexico, receive much harsher treatment than even the strongest critics of S.B. 1070 allege America gives to illegal Mexican immigrants.
