Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer slams ‘foreign interference’ in immigration lawsuit

Posted on October 6, 2010


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

Why are we even considering allowing foreign nations to contribute their opinion on our immigration policy?
