Drugs

One of the factors in Mexico's and others' lawsuit against Arizona. The drug trade and those involved must be protected. (h/t Patterico's Pontifications)

Deputies were first alerted to the farm on June 30 when a man, Pedro Guerrero
Gutierrez, 27, approached two young girls just outside of Panguitch attempting
to take their cellphone. At the time, Gutierrez had a loaded handgun at his
side, but when other girls approached the scene, he ran.

When police
found him nearby, Gutierrez was covered in pine gum, which led officers to
suspect a nearby marijuana farm.

Of course, ICE was missing in action.

Gutierrez is a Mexican national and is being charged for carrying the loaded
handgun when he approached the girls. He is currently being held without bail.

But Mexico and other third world nations are concerned about profiling, not drug dealing.

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.
