    Supreme Court backs Arizona immigration law that punishes businesses

    This is going to pissoff Obama and Holder, and I couldn't be happier about this.

    This is good for America.


    Supreme Court backs Arizona immigration law that punishes businesses - CNN.com

    Washington (CNN) -- The Supreme Court has backed an Arizona law that punishes businesses hiring illegal aliens, a law that opponents, including the Obama administration, say steps on traditional federal oversight over immigration matters.

    The 5-3 ruling Thursday is a victory for supporters of immigration reform.

    It was the first high court challenge to a variety of recent state laws cracking down on illegal immigrants, an issue that has become a political lightning rod.

    This is good news.
    "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"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    Re: Supreme Court backs Arizona immigration law that punishes businesses

    I have been ranting about this for years. They only way to curb illegal immigration is to take away their ability to make a living here. And you do that by fining or jailing employers who hire them. This has been a long time coming, but it is now here. The downside is that this is only in Arizona, which means that illegals there will come to Texas, or go to New Mexico or other states. Punishing employers who break the law needs to be done nationally.

    Actually, it won't. The Supreme Court only gave the ruling on a single issue. Liberals, in my experience, tend to like the idea of punishing businesses for exploiting cheap labor.

    The only real contention most liberal have with the law is that reasonable suspicion is the litmus test instead of probable cause. Indiana passed a similar bill, its litmus test is probably cause when checking for papers. The difference between the two laws is that reasonable suspicion is whatever a cop thinks, were probable cause actual has legal basis. Under reasonable suspicion, speaking Spanish would be grounds to trying to check for papers, or working in construction as a subcontractor maybe. Under probable cause, a crime would have to be committed and if the person doesn't present speak English very well while being unable to produce a drivers license would be trigger asking for paper. Basically, mores needed.

    Are you confusing Arizona SB1070 which has yet be presented to the SC, with the employer sanction law which the SC ruled in AZ favor.

    No, although I thought the employer rules were in the same bill.

    Yeah but it paves the way for other states to punish employers who willingly employ illegal’s and it is a step forward for state’s rights to enforce immigration laws.
