Mexico gets its say in one of the lawsuits challenging Arizona's
immigration enforcement law.
A federal judge on Thursday granted Mexico's request to be allowed to file
a legal brief supporting the challenge. That means the judge will consider
the brief Mexico submitted previously.
Mexico says it wants to defend its citizens' rights and that the law would
lead to racial profiling and hinder trade and tourism. It also says the law
would hinder work against drug trafficking and related violence.

I suspect this has something to do with NAFTA, which is a treaty between The U.S. and Mexico, and for this reason, Mexico has a palpable interest in the Arizona law, and how that directly affects the treaty. Of course, as long as the AZ legislation can withstand Constitutional muster, the treaty becomes moot.
To establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization, and uniform Laws on the subject of Bankruptcies throughout the United States;
The Judicial power of the United States shall not be construed to extend to any suit in law or equity, commenced or prosecuted against one of the United States by Citizens of another State, or by Citizens or Subjects of any Foreign State.
But Mexico said it has a legitimate interest in defending its citizens' rights and that Arizona's law would lead to racial profiling, hinder trade and tourism, and strain the countries' work on combating drug trafficking and related violence.
