With Mexico threatening to go to the international courts

A coalition of community groups is vowing to continue battling a law they consider discriminatory toward immigrants, Hispanics and other people of color.
"The fight ain't over till we win," Clarence Boykins of the NAACP said Monday at a Tucson press conference.
The coalition's first objective is to persuade the Department of Justice to reverse a preliminary decision that the proposition does not harm minority voting rights.
Elias predicted the ID requirement invites racial profiling at polling places and that Hispanics and Indians would be treated differently from other voters.
Potentially even more far-reaching is the impact the proof-of-citizenship requirement would have on grass-roots voter registration drives organized by activists, civic organizations and political parties.
Among the groups continuing the battle against the proposition are the American Friends Service Committee, the League of Women Voters, Los Adelitas and the Coalicion de Derechos Humanos/Alianza Indigena Sin Fronteras.
"Many people are beginning to realize the incredible impact this is going to have on our community," said Isabel Garcia of Derechos Humanos. "This is not the end of it."
Yeah, yeah whatever. Just shut up and prove you're a citizen so you can vote. Why is that so difficult? Maybe it's because they can't prove you're a citizen? Why would that be? Could it be you're not here legally?
