Arizona-mexico relations take another hit

Rate this Entry

If a store you regularly shopped at announced that it was going to start frisking customers from your ethnic group (or just vaguely resembling your ethnic group), chances are you would steer clear of that crazy shop.And that's pretty much how Mexico sees Arizona where it spends billions of dollars a year. Arizona Governor Brewer just announced she is canceling a conference with Mexican governors in Phoenix after a number of invited attendees suggested some interesting things the governor might do with the invitation (well, that's what I assume happened).

Governor Brewer's reaction:

The people of Arizona and the people of America support what Arizona
has done. ... For them to basically not attend here because of that, I
think is unfair.

That's kind of like the store saying that the the policy is justified because the other customers in the store support the frisking policy.

*My favorite part of the story? When Governor Richardson of New Mexico and Governor Schwarzenegger suggest not canceling the conference and simply dis-inviting Brewer.*

    Antis always want to seal the border. Let us give them a chance. AZ is the pilot program..let us seal AZ's border and if the citizens are happy, I am very happy and let us try it for the country as a whole! Obviously the citizens are not too happy...but they support the policy nonetheless.

    She will isolate herself if all other US governors attend this somewhere else.... Not that she has many friends outside the republican circles.

    Breaking news:

    Round one to the United States. My PACER account indicates:


    "This case has been assigned to the Honorable Neil V. Wake. All future pleadings or documents should bear the correct case number: CV 10-1413-PHX-NVW. This is a TEXT ENTRY ONLY. There is no PDF document associated with this entry. (BAS) (Entered: 07/06/2010)"


    "ORDER granting Plaintiff's Motion to Transfer [doc. 44 in CV 10-926 PHX SRB]. IT IS FURTHER ORDERED transferring CV 10-1413 PHX NVW to Judge Susan R. Bolton for all further proceedings. All future pleadings shall bear the following case caption: CV 10-1413 PHX SRB. Signed by Judge Susan R Bolton on 07/07/10. (ESL) (Entered: 07/07/2010)"

    Hearing on injuction scheduled:

    "ORDER, the Court advises counsel that the hearing scheduled for July 22, 2010, at 1:30 p.m. will be held in Special Proceedings Courtroom #200. Signed by Judge Susan R Bolton on 7/8/10. (REW) (Entered: 07/08/2010)"

    The United States really didn't want Wake (Bush, Jr. appointee) and wanted to be up before Bolton (Clinton appointee).
