    Federal judge blocks Georgia immigration law

    Federal judge grants request to block parts of Georgia immigration law from taking effect - The Washington Post

    ATLANTA — A federal judge on Monday blocked parts of Georgia’s law cracking down on illegal immigration from taking effect until a legal challenge is resolved.
    Judge Thomas Thrash granted a request to block parts of the law that penalize people who knowingly and willingly transport or harbor illegal immigrants while committing another crime. He also blocked provisions that authorize officers to verify the immigration status of someone who can’t provide proper identification.
    Thrash wrote that under parts of the law, the state is enforcing immigration law that should be left to the federal government.
    As I predicted, these state laws that try to let state/local officers enforce federal law will be shot down. Slowly but surely...

    The more that try the better. Feds can't block the entire country. No Dem votes in that. My state will be the first to hit the SCOTUS. We're ready. If all the states that aren't openly sanctuary states will take a stand, maybe we can force these clowns to deal with the border issues.
    I've never been able to understand why a Republican contributor is a 'fat cat' and a Democratic contributor of the same amount of money is a 'public-spirited philanthropist'.

    This is gonna hit SCOTUS, and chances are the laws will be held as Constitutional.. and there is nothing you can do about it.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    It's really not constitutional though... federal law = enforced by federal government. INA 287g would apply if the local/state had written permission from the federal government, then were trained accordingly by ICE, but since the states are not doing that, this is going to get thrown out. That is precisely the reason this law was blocked.

    That's not really true. The Feds can occupy the field. They can pass immigration reform which would improve the case that the states are not empowered to act on immigration.

    First of all, the law wasn't shot down. The court simply noted that these questions are currently making their way to the USSC and it's best to wait to charge people until after the USSC has made it's ruling. Or not if the USSC shoots it down.

    The USSC is unlikely to do that.

    The Feds need to get out of the way if they refuse to enforce the laws, and let the states do it. Imagine a USA without illegals.. 30% less in prison, reduction in crime, the savings in welfare ALONE could cover all the uninsured Americans without spending one more cent on Oblamacare.. jobs.. remember jobs?? In Georgia they pay illegals $100 a day to pick Vidalia onions. Lots of unemployed Americans will pick onions for $100 a day rather than be on the gov't dole. If some states choose to keep this national nightmare going-- let them. We don't want to in AZ. But sanctuary states really should not whine for Fed money if they keep enabling the problem.

    Re: Federal judge blocks Georgia immigration law

    I'm really curious to see if Republicans do any better. The border has been unsecured for at least thirty years under both Democrats and Republicans. I used to think it was because Republicans were giving their supporters cheap labor and Democrats were building their base.

    I now believe the border is unsecured because the world banking cartel is getting us ready to more seamlessly blend into the new world order. They think they've dumbed enough of us down and now they need to dilute the independent minded population with more tractable and obedient inhabitants.

    See what's up? The government is selling us down the river!

    IF they want to tighten up ILLEGAL Problems - its fought tooth and nail
    IF they want to be a sanctuary city like San Fransisco - its defended to no end.

    ... and how does this reflect on those who came to the USA legally?
    It is a slap in the face and insults integrity!

    So, the next time a bank gets robbed, the state and local cops should sit back and do nothing?
