Activists blast Mexico's immigration law - USATODAY.com

Quote(Mexico has a law that is no different from Arizona's that empowers local police to check the immigration documents of people suspected of not being in the country legally.)

I have previously in another thread posted a listing of Mexico's Immigration laws.
All the fuss that Mexico is making is because they (Mexican authorities) are being compelled by the influx of returning illegal immigrants from the USA back into Mexico, into having to provide housing etc to these returnees.

Quote(Mexico's Foreign Ministry said the law "violates inalienable human rights" and Democrats in Congress applauded Mexican President Felipe Calderón's criticisms of the law in a speech he gave on Capitol Hill last week.)

Wonder what the bleeding heart liberals have to say about Mexico's treatment of their illegal immigrants.
Not that it matters.
Both Countries have similar laws regarding illegal immigration, but the US does apparently choose to uphold these laws.

Quote(Yet Mexico's Arizona-style law requires local police to check IDs. And Mexican police freely engage in racial profiling and routinely harass Central American migrants, say immigration activists.

"The Mexican government should probably clean up its own house before looking at someone else's," said Melissa Vertíz, spokeswoman for the Fray Matías de Córdova Human Rights Center in Tapachula, Mexico.)

Aha but Politics do seem to get in the way of rationality.
An interesting article for those who are not of a Liberal Bleeding Heart disposition.
