Justice Scalia scolds Obama in Dissent - Riehl World View Justice Scalia scolds Obama in Dissent S.E. Cupp Tweeted a bit from Scalia's dissent on the Arizona immigration law ruling. RT @secupp: Scalia's dissent: "If securing its territory...is not w/in the power of AZ, we shld cease referring 2 it as a sovereign State. Business Insider has more, including Scalia's mention of a recent press conference by Obama. I'm thinking they don't see eye-to-eye. h/t Free Republic. "'The President said at a news conference that the new program is the right thing to do in light of Congresss failure to pass the Administrations proposed revision of the Immigration Act. Perhaps it is, though Arizona may not think so. But to say, as the Court does, that Arizona contradicts federal law by enforcing applications of the Immigration Act that the President declines to enforce boggles the mind.'"
