Republican Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer is aghast that Latin American governments opposed to her state’s tough new immigration law will have a voice in the lawsuit challenging the new legislation. She urged a federal court to prohibit foreign governments from joining the suit filed by the Justice Department, Politico
The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Monday that Mexico, Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Paraguay, Peru and Chile may submit friend-of-the-court briefs in the case.
“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,” Brewer said in a statement after the ruling Tuesday night.
“I am confident the 9th Circuit will do the right thing and recognize foreign interference in U.S. legal proceedings and allow the State of Arizona to respond to their brief.”
