    Since the ruling was announced today, I have heard a parade of spokespersons, from the ACLU to MALDEF to LULAC, suggest that the ruling should "send a message that immigration is a federal issue."

    Okay, I'm good with that with just a couple of exceptions...

    First, the issue is not about immigration, it's about illegal immigration.

    Second, leaving it to the feds only works if the feds work the problem. They don't.

    Except that more illegals have been deported under Obama....

    And yeah, striking down Arizona's "state laws" regarding immigration was the proper thing to do because citizenship is a federal issue.

    I'm not singling out any one administration nor am I arguing the SCOTUS decision was wrong.

    There is decades worth of blame to go around where this issue is concerned.

    And now he's working to lower that number by setting "priorities" and legalizing certain subgroups. Basically, he figures he's done enough, so it's time to suck up to the Latinos by capitulating to their "We want amnesty" crap.

    That’s a distinction without a difference. Immigration law encompasses the issue of those in the country illegally.

    States may determine the immigration status of those who are in custody for other alleged offenses provided there’s reasonable suspicion and such determinations are not based on race or ethnicity alone. Most importantly, the determination of one’s immigration status must be conducted in the timeframe allotted for a reasonable detention period appropriate for the alleged offense:

    Nonsense.

    As already noted, the fact that deportations have increased since the last administration indicates that’s simply not true. 1070 was about partisan politics, not the law or immigration. The Court saw it as such and ruled accordingly and correctly.

    The Court reaffirmed the fact that the states may not enact their own immigration laws. That a state may perceive the Federal response as ‘lacking’ is irrelevant, each state is represented in Congress by lawmakers who may address a given immigration issue in that venue, through the legislative process:

    The federal government was not doing their job. The States sovereign entity law
    was used by Arizona. Arizona had every right to enact their own immigration law
    if the federal government was not doing their job.
    That is why the supreame court upheld certain parts of the Arizona StateSB 1070 law.

    There will be a steady stream of illegals coming into AZ now... Obama doesn't give a crap. Every illegal alien is a potential Democratic voter.

    And as soon as a hair is touched on their heads they can call this number :mad:

    News from The Associated Press

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Justice Department has set up a hotline for the public to report potential civil rights concerns regarding the Arizona law that requires police to check the immigration status of those they stop for other reasons.

    The hotline phone number is 1-855-353-1010. The email is: SB1070(at)usdoj.gov.



    Wonder how many lawsuits this will foster... I mean the courts have nothing better to do.

    Just think... we are paying for that bullshit too :evil:
