    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 Congress’s failure to pass the Administration’s 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.'"

    Scalia is starting to lose it.

    Judicial activism at it's worst.

    And why is a SCOTUS Justice commenting on politics? It just reenforces the view that Scalia made his decision based on politics instead of the Constitution.

    Judges commenting on public policy is no more judicial activism than presidents commenting on court decisions is abuse of power.

    No they aren't. This makes a case for the states to do a Constitutional amendment and get back the authority it use to have.

    If the decision had gone the other way Barry and his boys would be telling you how great the SC and their decisions are.

    The FF wanted the States to have the power, not the Fed Govt.

    Glad to see the SC is adhering to the constitution.

    Way to go Scalia and the rest of the SC. Sotomeyer and Ginsberg included. LOL
