Perfect Sense?

Mexico threatens Arizona over anti-illegals measure

"A Mexican government official has threatened to use international courts to block an Arizona law meant to limit public benefits and voting rights to legal residents of the U.S."

How do they figure it is the requirement of one government to take care of the citizens of another government? If our goverment is not serious about stopping illegal immigration, and it doesn't seem to be, we might as well just overthrow Mexico and add another state to the union.

"Mexican officials have repeatedly complained about Proposition 200, which went into effect Tuesday. The statewide measure denies most taxpayer benefits to illegal aliens and requires state workers to report applicants for such benefits who may not be eligible. It also requires anyone registering to vote in the state to show proof of citizenship and bring a government-issued ID to the polling place."

Sounds like a great idea to me. I can't figure out why it would be any other way, unless committing national suicide was the goal.
