How much say in our government affairs should MEXICO have?

Is it me, or is this nation welcoming Mexico *guidance* in our affairs?

Mexicans have no room to lecture anyone on anything.

Americans have to consider its own government the enemy and now we have to fight foreign ones as well?

"Mexico argued the ban harms diplomatic relations between the United States, undermines the U.S.'s ability to speak to a foreign country with one voice and encourages the marginalization of Mexicans and people who appear to be from Latin America."

This is a pretty weak argument and I hope the court considers the source...

Harms diplomatic relations? They are illegal immigrants who came here illegally?

Undermines the U.S. ability to speak to a foreign country as one voice? This country is split more now than ever..

Marginalization? New Flash whether you are from Mexico, Columbia or Peru...if you are here illegally you are here illegally

Yeah, that's what I thought... then I recalled all those parades and get-togethers where the Mexican flag was flown over the USA flag--- within our boundaries.

I get so sick of other countries trying to tell us what to do within our borders. Sometimes it makes me think we should shut down all the borders and not let anyone else in and become isolationist. I really don't think we need anything from any other country in the world. Might give exception to Canada. They seem to usually be on our side on most things. And what does Mexico contribute to the world except maybe descent beer?

Oil maybe?

Quote:
The top five sources of US crude oil imports for October were Canada (2,222 thousand barrels per day), Saudi Arabia (1,254 thousand barrels per day), Mexico (1,005 thousand barrels per day), Venezuela (928 thousand barrels per day) and Iraq (593 thousand barrels per day).
Quote:
Canada remained the largest exporter of total petroleum in October; exporting 2,683 thousand barrels per day to the United States. The second largest exporter of total petroleum was Mexico with 1,062 thousand barrels per day.

I imagine those from those 3d-World/4th World countries look at making the government leadership of the USA jump, roll over, and fetch the slippers as fine sport.
