And the Horse She Rode In On

Guess who's not coming to dinner:

The city government of Querétaro declared Failed State of Arizona governor Jan Brewer and the state legislators persona non grata, prohibiting them from entering national territory.

The municipal government demonstrated its rejection of the anti-immigrant law SB 1070, which in their opinion "promotes racism and discrimination."

We don't pretend to fully understand the inner workings of government here, but we assume this does not actually have the force of law behind it. We're also slightly confused by the use of the phrase territorio nacional, which we take to mean all of Mexico. Clearly, a city government can't exclude a person from entering the country, but it does seem possible that they could actually ban Brewer & Co. from entering the city of Querétaro, and maybe that's the next step. If the Ayuntamiento needs a gringo co-sponsor to help provide political cover, you know where to find us.
