Posted on 05/09/2006 3:58:29 PM PDT by SwinneySwitch
PHOENIX A prosecutor seeking to convict dozens of illegal immigrants for illegally crossing into Arizona has accused the Mexican government of organizing legal efforts to dismantle a state law targeting immigrant smugglers.
Maricopa County Attorney Andrew Thomas says the Mexican government has arranged for a lawyer to challenge his legal opinion that illegal immigrants suspected of using smugglers to cross into the state can be charged as conspirators.
The lawyer also argues that the state can't regulate immigration.
Thomas has asked the U-S State Department to protest the Mexican government's alleged involvement in the case.
A call to the office of the Carlos Flores Vizcarra, the Mexican consul general in Phoenix whom Thomas has accused of seeking to weaken the state law, wasn't immediately returned late this morning.
Forty-eight illegal immigrants were charged as conspirators under the 9-month-old law.
It's ILLEGAL immigration and SOMEBODY has to do it!
Here's another one...
Paging Presidente Bush!
Levin just read this post word for word on his show.
The State Department will heretofore warn the Mexican government when Prosecutor Andrew Thomas is enforcing the laws of Arizona.
Why should they not be charged as conspirators? Were they kidnapped and forced over the border?
Sooner or Later the Government is going to start doing their jobs or they are going to find that there are worse outcomes than losing elections due to Conservatives staying home. The KKK didn't start in a vacuum and neither did the other extremist groups over the past 200 years.
History ignored, is repeated.
The nation of Mexico reminds me of the 5 foot guy in high school who is always trying to pick fights with people. Take the 5 footer on, and you look bad for picking on the little guy. I think Americans are well past being fed up with this though.
They*re going to keep screwing around until Americans take matters into their own hands, and I don*t really think that Fox wants a war on his hands! It*s apparent that our treasonous government isn*t going to do anything. It*s bad enough that they don*t help, but when they go out of their way to keep us from doing what they WON*T do, it*s time to change our "leaders!"
I still think they ought to charge them with multiple crimes. It's harder to fight. There are so many laws out there.
Anyone tired of the mexican government running this country yet?
Hell I don't remember voting for the mexican government anyone see any small print we weren't aware of on the ballot?
So who in the mexican govt is on the ballot in Nov?
It's beginning to look as if we'll have to wait until at least 2009 for that to start happening.
