    Is it just me or does this strike others as insane? "We will send you our poor, etc, illegally. You must clothe, feed, and improve their health. They will send the American dollars back to Mexico. If some of your citizens refuse to grant these fine illegals the vote and other privilieges, our country will sue you!"

    Do I have this right? :huh:

    Oh yeah, you got it right. Not only will we sue you in your own courts but we will let the international court tell you that you must do it our way.

    BTW, did I read it wrong (not from AZ) but at some time did illegals get to actually vote? :coffee3:

    I've heard that some have been allowed to vote in school elections, others allowing drivers licenses and such. What is wrong with these people?

    I heard about this and it seems utterly ridiculous. This wont succeed even in an international court. If it did the Supreme Court would overrule it.

    The ICC wouldnt have anything to do with it. This isnt a criminal matter. If Mexico had a dispute with the US it would come before the ICJ, which is a totally different court. I am not familar with the US status in regard to the ICJ which only settles disputes between nations. All i know is this issue cant even come before the ICJ if Mexico tried. There is no international law which allows for benefits of illegal aliens in any nation. Nor is there any international custom. So there would be no jurisdiction for the ICJ. Besides which I believe the US would have to consent to the matter being brought between an international tribunal, as it has to do with our domestic laws i dont think it would ever happen.

    I would think Article 3 Section. 2.
    Clause 1: The judicial Power shall extend to all Cases, in Law and Equity, arising under this Constitution, the Laws of the United States, and Treaties made, or which shall be made, under their Authority;--to all Cases affecting Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls;--to all Cases of admiralty and maritime Jurisdiction;--to Controversies to which the United States shall be a Party;--to Controversies between two or more States;--between a State and Citizens of another State; (See Note 10)--between Citizens of different States, --between Citizens of the same State claiming Lands under Grants of different States, and between a State, or the Citizens thereof, and foreign States, Citizens or Subjects.
