    Re: Arizona immigration law 101: seven lawsuits, and counting

    Good post's black sheep, and Texmaster. I've read the law, (Wonder how many Lib's have actually read it) and I see inherent contradiction with Federal Immigration law, and I see no violation of the supremacy clause.. I would also like to read the Fed's briefs, but I can't help but wonder what they're really up too?

    I dont believe this law will be struck down at all for several reasons. In order for a state law to be struck down by the courts it must hinder federal enforcement of the current laws or be in direct conflict with federal laws as laid out in the decision of Edgar v. Mite Corp. Here is Justice White wrote in the majority opinion:

    You can find this under section 3 of Justice White's opinion which it states: "a state statute is void to the extent that it actually conflicts with a valid federal statute; and
    [a] conflict will be found 'where compliance with both federal and state regulations is a physical impossibility . . . ,' Florida Lime & Avocado Growers, Inc. v. Paul, 373 U. S. 132, 373 U. S. 142-143 (1963), or where the state 'law stands as an obstacle to the accomplishment and execution of the full purposes and objectives of Congress.' Hines v. Davidowitz, 312 U. S. 52, 312 U. S. 67 (1941); 430 U. S. 526, 430 U. S. 540-541 [(1977)]. Accord, De Canas v. Bica,@ 424 U. S. 351, 424 U. S. 363 (1976)." EDGAR V. MITE CORP., 457 U. S. 624 :: Volume 457 :: 1982 :: Full Text :: US Supreme Court Cases from Justia & Oyez

    The "sanctuary laws" are what the federal Government should be looking at as it does violate the ruling on state and federal law congruency. It hinders Federal enforcement by providing a sanctuary area away from immigration enforcements.
