    If it hadn't been for the lawsuit against Arizona, this case would never see the SC chambers.

    Actually, it's an insult to the people of the United States that a state have to seek permission from the SC to enforce the law.

    What is being addressed by the States is illegal immigration. It may be a concept to hard for some to understand. Nothing I have seen in State that have passed laws infringe or change federal law. It mearly gives the States more flexibility to enforce federal laws.

    So you think illegal immigration is entirely a federal issue. OK, then lets hold Obama and every other federal elected official responsible for enforcing federal immigratiion laws. Funding can come from redirecting funds from the pork barrel spending and give away programs that we have. Guess States then start sending bills to the federal govt. for medical, education, and prison costs for illegals who are in the country. These costs must be a federal issue, since by your stance illegal immigration is a federal issue and not in the States rights to get involved.
    This is the crux of the matter. The federal government refuses to aggressively or even with some level of care enforce immigration laws. The states are taking the brunt of the problems created by the deriliction of duty of the federal gvoernment. The federal goverment refuses to respond to pleas by states like Arizona to do their duty. And the federal govermnent refuses to have the guts to change immigration laws that they don't have the will to enforce because of politics. Reveal what they really feel and lose votes. Better just to ignore the laws because it will have less impact.

    Only in America would there be a law that says it's illegal to enter our borders without proper Visa or Passport, then refuse to enforce the law because it might hurt the perpetrator and wouldn't be politically correct...only in a truly liberal-headed country. Anywhere else they shoot them or imprison them...we give them free access to our schools and hospitals. God help this country.

    Err yes and no.. depend on how the law is worded. I agree fully people pushers should be punished and what they are doing is a crime. But knowing who wrote these laws .. then I would suspect that the wording would be so that anyone, knowingly or not, who transport or harbor illegals could be arrested and thrown in jail. That means that if you picked up a hitchhiker that was an illegal then you would go to jail. Bus drivers would be at huge risk of jail also.
