Arizona: name of illegal alien hiring-business not disclosed in court; Mexico will "intervene"

Arizona has a new employers sanction law that took effect on January 1. It's being challenged in court by lawyers such as Julie Pace and David Selden. The latest twist in that case:
A federal court will keep secret the identity of an Arizona business owner who admits in a sworn statement to hiring illegal immigrants.

The business owner, who remains anonymous, has filed an affidavit in federal court saying he was employing people not in this country legally last year when the lawsuit was filed, and he intends to continue to do so even with the new state law that took effect Jan. 1.

That law allows a judge to suspend or revoke any state licenses of firms that knowingly hire undocumented workers.
The Mexican government promised Friday to defend any Mexicans affected by an Arizona law that punishes employers who hire undocumented migrants.

..."Measures like the one approved in Arizona do not contribute to solving the issue of migration by workers between the two countries, and ignore the contributions that migrants make to the U.S. economy and society," Mexico's Foreign Relations Department said.

The department said it will "intervene, through its consulates, in any situation in which the rights of Mexican workers are affected, regardless of their immigration status."
I expect them to use proxies such as "human rights" or "immigrant rights" groups and lawyers such as Peter Schey.

"intervene, through its consulates, in any situation in which the rights of Mexican workers are affected, regardless of their immigration status." That they're this brazen says a lot about where we are today. They act like it's their country and as a practical matter it is in a way considering the significant % of their population allowed to reside here with virtual impunity.

I am tired of Mexico telling this country how to treat and manage our laws in favor of their illegal aliens in this country. I am proud of Arizona and Oklahoma in their attempts to turn the tide of these illegals taking American Jobs. If only our government would get all these lazy 3rd and 4th generation leaches off of our welfare rolls and put them to work we would not need foreign illegal laborers. I am tired of our politicians being in the back pockets of special interest groups and do the job they were elected to do. They are supposed to work for us,but they do not take their oath seriously enough, they should all be impeached!!

Mexico intervene in our system of justice? Sure, just as long as we can reciprocate and conduct another punitive expedition. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pancho_Villa_Expedition
