Mexico joins Arizona immigration lawsuit
Advertisements [?]

Mexico has joined a legal challenge to a controversial new immigration law in the US state of Arizona.

In papers submitted to a US federal court, the Mexican government argues that the law is unconstitutional and would damage bilateral relations.

It says it is concerned that it could lead to unlawful discrimination against Mexican citizens.

The Mexican government submitted arguments as a "friend of the court" in support of a case brought by a group of civil rights organisations, including the Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund, the National Immigration Law Center, and the American Civil Liberties Union.
