"B" For Bonkers: US Federal Government Allows Foreign Nations To Join Its Suit Against Arizona

To the extent that leftists love the UN and its offspring such as the International Court, they hate the idea of US national sovereignty.  Makes them nervous.

Which perhaps explains this:
In a new twist in the fight over Arizona’s immigration law, Republican Gov. Jan Brewer on Tuesday asked a federal court to disallow foreign governments from joining the U.S. Department of Justice lawsuit 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. 
I guess Mexico, Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Paraguay, Peru and Chile all feel they have a special interest in propping up and defending illegal immigration to the US.
“As do many citizens, I find it incredibly offensive that these foreign governments are using our court system to meddle in a domestic legal dispute and to oppose the rule of law,” the Republican governor said in a statement shortly after the state’s motion was filed Tuesday evening. 
As do I, a part-time resident of Arizona.

This should just be more good news for the republicans.

I still envy the US for their 1st and 2nd ammendments, but this is f***ing nuts. Who in the hell is running their country?

If they don't get some sanity back into their system, I fear the full effect and force of the 2nd ammendment will come to bear.
