Australia has nothing to fear from the Mongols' expansion Down Under and tough new laws aimed at bikies in Queensland and other states are "misguided and stupid" because of their discriminatory nature, the motorcycle club's US lawyer says.
Stephen Stubbs, a Nevada-based lawyer who has filed a $US12 million ($A12.68 million) lawsuit on behalf of the Mongols and other motorcycle clubs against Las Vegas police departments, says bikies in the US and Australia are victims of profiling.
While the Mongols have a dark history, with former president Ruben "Doc" Cavazos and other members jailed after a major 2008 undercover operation in the US codenamed Black Rain, the lawyer said on Wednesday that the club had new leadership.
The Mongols were not a criminal enterprise and did not have a "shoot on sight" policy with other motorcycle club members, Stubbs said.
"They are not a gang," he told AAP.
"They are not a street gang.
"They are not a criminal organisation.
"They are a motorcycle club."
The move by the Finks to patch over to the Mongols in Australia has created fears the California-based Mongols will generate mayhem in Australia, create a bloody bikie war with the dominant Hells Angels and result in drug and weapons trafficking.
The Mongols reject that.
The "shoot on sight" declaration was just a rumour created by US law enforcement and Australians should view Mongols as members of a "motorcycle club that rides in Australia," Stubbs said.
Stubbs filed the US District Court lawsuit one day after the Mongols finished a three-day national meeting in Boulder City, Nevada, in 2012.
The suit alleges the Mongols and other clubs, including the Bandidos, Stray Cats and Vagos, were victims over the years of civil rights and constitutional rights abuse at the hands of Las Vegas authorities.
Stubbs said new laws in Australia specifically targeting members of motorcycle clubs were not going to stop people from joining the clubs."Profiling laws that punish certain people differently for the same crime are misguided and stupid," the lawyer said.
