    AZ Gov Jan Brewer Slams Foreign Interference in Immigration Lawsuit

    Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer slams 'foreign interference' in immigration lawsuit - Scott Wong - POLITICO.com

    In a new twist in the fight over Arizona’s immigration law, Republican Gov. Jan Brewer on Tuesday asked a federal court to disallow foreign governments from joining the U.S. Department of Justice lawsuit to overturn the law.

    The move comes in response to a 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruling issued Monday, allowing nearly a dozen Latin American countries — Mexico, Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Paraguay, Peru and Chile — to submit friend-of-the-court briefs in Justice’s challenge to SB 1070, which Brewer signed into law in April and is considered one of the nation’s toughest immigration-enforcement measures.
    1. So those strict constructionists on the 9th Circuit have more affinity for Fernando and Felisia from Forteliza than for Frank and Phyllis in Phoenix.

    2. How characterisitc.

    3. On the side of patriotic, concerned, sober Americans are the audacious attorneys general of eleven AMERICAN states.

    4. Naturally, Holder's DOJ is sympatico with the appellates.

    5. Obama's reaction to the serious citizens of Arizona---SUE EM!

    6. No wonder so many question his authenticity.

    7. This woebegone White House is so worrisomely out of touch it's losing HISPANIC voters.

    Hispanics lose zeal to turn out vote for Dems - Washington Times

    8. Hispanic Americans are feeling much of the betrayal, the sense of being played by this crassly political and incompetent White House that our gay neighbors and friends felt when DADT died three weeks ago.

    9. Are YOU exhausted yet from defending him?

    This is why there should be a litmus test for judges.Foreign countries have absolutely no business in an American state law.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Well since we're talking about an immigration law I think it kind of does involve some foreign countries, specifically Latin America.
    I use a lot of satire and sarcasm so keep that in mind when reading my posts.

    FWIW, allowing a foreign country to submit an amicus brief is very different from allowing foreign "interference." There are domestic groups that would be more than willing to submit the same briefs, word for word. This sounds like it's more about politics than law.

    How does it involve foreign countries in our law?
    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

    What exatcly is an amicus brief and how does it affect a case?

    It's when someone who is not directly involved in a case as a party wants to offer an argument on a particular issue or provide the court with some relevant factual background. Usually it involves taking one side or the other, but there are some amicus briefs that are simply filed to make the court aware of things that will only affect one portion of the case.

    Imagine that some guy who lives next to a national park believes that the government improperly prevents him from shooting wolves if they come onto his land. He might argue that case one way, while the government will argue it the other. Each side is primarily focused on winning that particular case. However, Greenpeace might be less concerned about the contours of this case and more concerned about the implications of a particular type of argument, so they might ask the court for permission to submit an amicus brief focusing on that point. The NRA might be less concerned about the issues involving wildlife regulations, but more concerned about the laws dealing with guns. They might ask the court for permission to submit an amicus brief on that point. A group of law professors might not care how the case comes out, but want to be sure that the court recognizes the importance of a particular legal regime.

    Amicus briefs rarely end up deciding the case, as courts just treat them as additional arguments for one side or the other. The rules for allowing these briefs are very lax - if the brief would be useful to the court, it's generally admitted. I can't imagine that the decision to allow these briefs will have any effect on the case, which makes me think that this is just a convenient way to stir up support for the law.

    An amicus brief is a document which is filed in a court by someone who is not directly related to the case under consideration. The most classic example of an amicus brief is a document filed by an advocacy group such as the American Civil Liberties Union. The additional information which is found in such a document can be useful for the judge evaluating the case, and it becomes part of the official case record. Many nations allow people or entities to file such documents with their courts.

    Isn't it interesting that we now have a Mexican President bitching about an Arizona Law that mirrors Federal Law and is mild when compared with Mexico's Draconian laws that require prison time in a hell hole.

    Jan Brewer is a hero in my book, and one tough lady.
