Disregarding National Sovereignty
The governments of Mexico and 9 other nations are suing the State of Georgia in a federal court over its immigration law HB 87. Shame on President Obama and any other politician who has chosen to remain silent in this violation of our sovereignty. The issue is not the wisdom of the law itself, which I have yet to determine, but the right of the American People to resolve these questions without foreign interference. Even American organizations that are partaking in the lawsuit, such as the ACLU and the Southern Poverty Law Center, should unequivocally state that although they oppose this law, it is a question that should be resolved via the electoral and court system. And having read the Mexican Constitution, I would encourage our government to enact the principles of Article 33, which states that "Foreigners may not in any way participate in the political affairs of the country." In other words, while non-citizens are entitled to civil rights and due process, it is not their place to protest or seek to change the laws of the land. But, perhaps this is the inevitable result of the American Government's continuous interference in the internal affairs of other nations, such as Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya and much of Latin America. Disregard the sovereignty of others for long enough and you shall soon disregard your own. The writer Steve Sailer best described the ideology that has dominated the American Government for decades as "Invade the World, Invite The World."
