AZ: Pro-Mexican Invasion Activists File Lawsuit

Apparently, Mexico's punishing immigration laws are not in place in the U.S.
Opponents of Arizona's hardline immigration enforcement law launched a new effort Tuesday aimed at thwarting a U.S. Supreme Court ruling that will allow police to enforce the so-called "show me your papers" provision.
A coalition of civil rights groups, religious leaders and business
organizations filed a new request seeking a court order that would
prevent authorities from enforcing a rule that requires police to check
the immigration status of people they stop for other reasons.
The groups are asking U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton to block enforcement of the requirement before it takes effect, arguing that Latinos in Arizona would face systematic racial profiling and unreasonably long detentions under the contentious section of the 2010 law.
