      Latin American nations bid to join Mexico in Arizona case

      PHOENIX - Seven other Latin American countries want to join Mexico in
      supporting a lawsuit challenging Arizona's immigration enforcement law.

      Bolivia, Colombia, El Salvador, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Paraguay and Peru
      filed separate, nearly identical motions to join Mexico's legal brief
      supporting the lawsuit filed by U.S. civil rights and other advocacy groups.

      A federal judge formally accepted Mexico's filing July 1 but did not
      immediately rule on the latest motions filed late last week.

      Mexico says the law would lead to racial profiling and hinder trade, tourism
      and the fight against drug trafficking.

      The law is to take effect July 29. It requires that police conducting
      traffic stops or questioning people about possible legal violations ask them
      about their immigration status if there is "reasonable suspicion" that
      they're in the country illegally.
