    Supreme Court will hear Arizona immigration case

    Link


    Stephen Dinan
    The Supreme Court announced Monday it will take the case of Arizona’s tough immigration crackdown law, adding yet another contentious clash between the Obama administration and the states to its docket.

    The case, which has attracted national attention, pits Arizona against the Obama administration, which sued and won court orders blocking implementation of most of the law at both the district and appeals court levels. Arizona’s law spawned a host of copycat laws in other states, and most of them have likewise seen their key provisions blocked by court challenges from the administration.

    At stake is Arizona’s goal of granting state and local police the power to check the immigration status of persons they encounter during their duties, such as traffic stops. Administration lawyers argue the state statutes infringe on what is federal responsibility to police the borders and set immigration policy.
    In its notice, the court said Justice Elena Kagan had recused herself from the decision to take the case.

    Justice Kagan has come under fire for not recusing herself from the decision to hear challenges to the new health care law.
    Okay, what say ye?

    It will be interesting. Truthfully I don't have a clue how it will go.

    Would be interesting if they formalized a states inability to enforce federal law, but granted states the ability to sue the Federal government for lack of enforcement.

    Did she recuse herself because she had a hand in the paperwork originally filed by the administration? I'm not really up to speed on what she was involved in before her placement in the SCOTUS.

    This should be a real doozy.

    She's recused herself from numerous cases so far. I don't believe there needs to a recusal reason in the filing, but one can assume that some legal opinion was provided by her as Solicitor General.

    I believe in 2010, her recusal rate was about 50%. I suspect, as time goes on, that rate will drop.

    Hopefully they rule that the state can enforce anti-illegal immigration laws,especially seeing how it is the tax payers in the state who have to pay to deal with illegals
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Re: Supreme Court will hear Arizona immigration case

    What I find confusing is that it's not a new law. Illegal immigration is, well......illegal, lol. And has been since, what....Ellis Island?

    This law is simply a measure to allow a state a greater ability to enforce the existing laws.

    The only unfortunate part is some of it's wording, which, to be honest, COULD be done better, in my oh so unprofessional opinion.

    I hope the law is stuck down. Not only is it immoral, it is unconstitutional. The Constitution specifically grants the power to regulate naturalization and immigration to the federal government, not the States.
