Judge Strikes Down Several Aspects Of Arizona’s Immigration Law

July 30, 2010 by  

Judge Strikes Down Several Aspects Of Arizona's Immigration LawOn Wednesday afternoon—just hours before Arizona’s controversial new immigration law was to go into effect—a Federal judge issued an injunction to block several of the most contentiously debated portions of the measure.

United States District Judge Susan Bolton’s ruling will prevent Arizona from requiring its law enforcement personnel to ask for identification from individuals who they "reasonably suspect" of being an illegal immigrant.

"By enforcing this statute, Arizona would impose a ‘distinct, unusual and extraordinary’ burden on legal resident aliens that only the Federal government has the authority to impose," Bolton wrote in her ruling.

"Preserving the status quo through a preliminary injunction is less harmful than allowing state laws that are likely preempted by Federal law to be enforced," she added.

Furthermore, Bolton sided with the Federal government by striking down a section of the law that would require immigrants to carry their registration papers at all times. She also blocked the provision that would have made it a crime for an illegal immigrant to apply for or perform work in the state.

Several sections of the law still went into effect on Thursday, including one making it illegal to pick up and transport day laborers.

In response to the ruling, Governor Jan Brewer said the "fight is far from over" and that Arizona is willing to take the case "all the way to the Supreme Court if necessary."

    I’m still trying to figure out how a soverign nation is suppose to stop foreign invasion… are we suppose to let 5 billion of the world’s poverty class just swamp our borders and transform us into a Third World?

    Look, I’m sorry but there are 14+ million Americans and legal immigrants unemployeed and our economy is getting worse while 8 million people are working criminally, people who have committed document fraud and other crimes to fool employers.

    I support this new bill proposal coming out in the Senate. It seems like the most humane, common sense approach I have seen for dealing just with the aspect of illegal immigration.

    • WarriorH

      I wonder. If someones army (pick any country) were to invade the US through the Mexican/Arizona border, would Arizonians be able to defend themselves first without DOJ approval?

      • Ted Crawford

        The most likely scenario to that would be , obama using his powers under EO-13524, would have NATO forces guarding their flanks!!!

        • AmVet

          Impeachment is in order start the process now before it is too late. Eric Holder and Obama are an imbarrasement to the United States.

          • Terry

            An embarrasment, to be sure. Could his sympathy for illegals spring from the fact that he himself is not a legal president? Where’s the birth certificate?

        • dan of arizona

          then if that were the case we would use nato for bait to bring them in closer for a better shot

      • http://personalliberty.com Jessica

        The Arizonans wouldn’t bother to wait. They’re already arming themselves for the inevitable coming invasion.

  • s c

    Maybe the judge is confused. If the judge is on speaking terms with the Constitution and knows what a prez can and can’t do, then it seems very curious that a state could be wrong to try and compensate for an administration that caters to illegals, and selectively enforces laws it likes and ignores laws it doesn’t like.
    Is that judge required to defend a decision, or is the judge so intelligent that we must bow and scrape while the prez ignores an invasion? Once again, something stinks, and it’s coming from Washington and yet another classic, rogue activist judge.

    • RandyG

      Well, when the elections come up ( on 8/24/10) we know which judge to vote out of office.

    • slickporsche

      The constitution does not give the “president”, forgive me for calling him that, nor the supreme court the right to create law. It is supposed to be congress. All states need to grow some courage, and pass the same law as Arizona. Tell the feds to shove off! Remember,united we stand? This is beyond insane, to allow this to go on another day. The feds need to start deportation immediatly, for every illegal. No if’s, and’s, or maybe’s, just do it now! If they resist, they return feet first. It is time that we in this country get back to our roots, and get tough again. No more political correctness, as it is leading us down the path of destruction.

    • Linda

      It more than stinks. It’s a whole pile of you know what. Just wait till this man in the white house grants amnesty without a vote. What can we do as a country without taking to the streets like the mexicans have done. I feel we are better than that. What can we do? Can we all stand on a certain day at a certain time and let everything just drop and all demand his impeachment. Of course we would all have to have a meeting place so the news camera’s could be there to claim we were racist. But we all need to get with the tea party’s and have a sit in. And all of this nation have a day of sit out and demand his impeachment. Would that work? Better than taking up arms. What ever we do it had better be soon before he gives his amnesty. Legally.

  • dan of arizona

    What part of the law does she not understand. This is a blatant refusal to make a decision on a law that has already been ratified by the senate in 1996 does she not no the law or is just prolonging the decision for obomer to get his amnesty though first. If she cant make the decision then get out of the seat so some one can here is the law that no one seems to read or execute
    The Section 287(g) program is a means by which state and local law enforcement agencies may cooperate with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to enforce our immigration laws. It was established by the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996 so that officers may receive training from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in functions such as identification, processing, and detention of immigration offenders. This training provides state and local police with additional tools they can use to prosecute crimes committed by aliens, especially gang violence and document fraud, while reducing the impact of illegal immigration on local communities and making it less likely that terrorists will be able to operate with impunity in the United States.

    Any state or political subdivision may initiate a 287(g) agreement on behalf of its law enforcement officers by contacting ICE. Once a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the state or locality and the Department of Homeland Security is signed, the state or local officers participate in a four- to five-week course on immigration law and enforcement. Once the officers are certified, they can count on the assistance of ICE agents as they perform the immigration functions for which they were trained.

    The utility of this program is borne out by its documented success to date. As of August 21, 2007, 23 state and local law-enforcement agencies have struck agreements with ICE, and about 75 others have submitted applications. Most agreements were signed in the prior 18 months. To date, ICE has trained 416 officers, who, in turn, have made over 22,000 arrests in conjunction with Federal law enforcement officials.

    Several large, urban counties – including Los Angeles and San Bernadino Counties in California and Mecklenburg County in North Carolina – participate in the 287(g) program. Mecklenburg County’s participation has been so successful, in fact, that the Criminal Justice, Drug Policy and Human Resources Subcommittee of the House Government Reform Committee held a hearing in the county in 2006 specifically to discuss that jurisdiction’s experiences with the program.

    • Palin12

      Las Vegas participates in 287(g) also :-)

      • dan of arizona

        palin 12
        Im glad that some one does when sheriff joe does he gets ridiculed for doing his job,threats and law suits ect. I read that reid doesnt think that there are any illegals working at construction jobs because he said they dont maybe he should accualy goe to a site and ask them before he puts his foot in his mouth. either he is blind or just another progressive lyer

        • Palin12

          In reality, Nevada leads the nation in illegal aliens working in construction. Reid is a bald faced liar.

        • Al Sieber

          Theres plenty of illegals working in Ariz. Bullhead City, Kingman, Lk. Havasu City etc. because Judge Bolton said they could work or apply for work in Ariz.. so it’s not a crime to take a American’s job, and if you complain, you’re a racist.

          • Al Sieber

            We’ll remember you “Judge”, how you followed the constitution and your oath of office, and how you protected the citizens…..

    • slickporsche

      Yeah big deal! It sounds like another waste of time and money.More bull. You believe it is really a big deal that 22,000 have been deported. There are at least 22 million left that need to be deported. We do not need some silly piece of garbage like 287 or what ever it is. Start rounding them up and loading them into what ever kind of vehicle will get them there. I think several mile long trains,with a consist of cattle cars would do the trick.

    • Palin12

      30 more illegals busted in immigration raid in Vegas yesterday. Illegals….don’t think driving up to Vegas from Arizona is going to help you in anyway! Go home! There’s no jobs here!
      http://www.lvrj.com/news/immigration-raid-s-timing–bizarre—las-vegas-activist-says–99681669.html

      • Ellspeth Roberts

        I’m all for legal immigration, from whatever country you want to name. However, if whoever can’t come legally, well then we need to take our borders back, and boot out the illegals. Believe me, other countries have rules about this too, and they don’t want illegal immigrants just moving into their countries either.

        And another thing, the current economy sucks pond water – this country needs to put it’s own citizens to work and help it’s own citizens. I’m sick of hearing about “the rights of those poor illegals”. What rights? Our Constitutional rights aren’t for them, those rules are for us, you do remember us(?) – the US citizens……….

        • Palin12

          One of the leaders for these illegal aliens that were deported was lamenting how “heartbreaking” this immigrant raid was, and that families were being seperated. Well boo hoo. It’s the same as if a bank robber with a family goes to prison. They broke the law and now they are paying the consequences! That is the risk they take being here. Boo Hoo! Tears are streaming my face!

          • http://?? Joe H.

            Palin12,
            One of the commentators on Fox that pi$$es me off the most is heraldo riviera!! his statement a few seconds ago that the ones that came here and went through grade school and high school should be allowed to stay is BS!!! They stole that education from the American People!!!
            They got a big “gift” from us, an education!! Now go home and do something with it and never come here again!! To the ones thinking of immigrating to the U.S., go through the proper channels and I will shake your hand when you get here!! Just walk over the border through the “back door” and I will volenteer a foot to help kick your azz back across the border!!!

      • dan of arizona

        Palin 12

        check out this site and pass it around

        • Palin12

          Thanks Dan. You folks in Arizona stay strong. You have the support of 65% of Americans. I’m sure you saw what happened at the Diamondbacks game yesterday.

          • dan of arizona

            no sorry didnt see it what happened

          • Palin12

            This was in NYC, Mets against DBacks. 2 Latinos ran onto the field carrying a Mexican flag and disrupted the game before security got them.

        • Al Sieber

          Thanks dan.

  • Al Sieber

    Once again Obama gets his way by a bought and payed for judge. the people here in Ariz. are more than pissed off. it shows that illegals get special treatment over the citizens of this country, while the crime wave is ignored.

    • JC

      One word – Nullification.

      • Al Sieber

        Thats possible.

        • s c

          Al, I waited patiently for readers of this website who are legal scholars and/or know lawyers who give a damn about America. Since no one has come forward to help, I’d like to know if that judge in Phoenix has ever heard of the Constitution.
          Beyond that, I’d like to know if that judge has ever heard of Article 4, Section 4 of the Constitution. In a nutshell, the Constitution says “… and shall protect each of them (individual states) against invasion.”
          I get the impression that the judge in Phoenix never bothered to let herself see how the blatant violation of Article 4 [Section 4} of the Constitution makes a good case for the idea that a certain prez has willingly violated the Constitution and his effin’ oath of office.
          Arizona has been “had,” Al.
          I strongly suggest that Arizonans find a way to remove that judge from office, and then take on Herr Obummer nose-to-nose. The very least Americans
          can do is to IMPEACH “Mr. Obama.” From here on, Al, it can only get worse before it gets better.

          • Al Sieber

            SC, theres something in the works here, when I find out I’ll let you know.

          • dan of arizona

            hey quys check out this site sounds like there is a diffrent agenda in the works

            http://www.morphcity.com/home/79-national-ocean-council

          • Al Sieber

            SC, we can vote this damn judge out, I’m sure, and it’s gonna get a lot worse in this country by years end. I’m just thankful I live out in the wilderness and am pretty much self sufficient and can make a decent living. I just have the feeling of impending doom, like a lot of people I know. this economy is hanging by a thread, and I hear 400,000 people a week are being laid off, is that possible? I heard that on the radio, on a investment show I listen to last night.

          • HHH

            It is amazing that all of you legal experts are so informed about what the law says, what you are able or not able to do, and what the Constitution says…… as well, the business of the Federal government is still the business of the Federal government, despite your unwillingness to accept the reality!!

          • http://?? Joe H.

            HHH,
            No, the business of the federal government is the business of the people!!!

        • Al Sieber

          dan, I read that last night on G Edward Griffin’s site. this has been coming for a long time. called: LOST

      • Scott

        You are right on JC. Maybe they are afraid of losing all the federal funds that goes to roads schools etc. Not to mention the stimulus funds. They don’t want to get the feds. to piste off.

    • Craig

      Is there a way we can subpoena her email and phone records? I’ll bet somebody in the Obama administration or the DOJ was talking to her and suggested she follow Obamas program. Because the reasoning, if you can call it that, for doing what she did is strikingly similar to what the leftwingnuts have been spewing for the past several months.

    • slickporsche

      Yes, and the illegal are getting very spiteful and arrogant over it.They are laughing at us big time, and are getting swelled heads over it. I cannot believe what it going on.

      • (WIA) Wild Indian in Action

        Well, fellows it’s called “La Reconquista” and it’s for real. I live in Douglas, AZ. S.E. corner just a few blocks from the border, the sieve of illegal entry and shooting at and killing ranchers. Robert and Susan Krentz are friend, rest in peace Bob.
        On a second note, how quickly all of you forget how your ancestors came to this western hemisphere practically wiping out all of ours, and now your waiting for your SWAMP Government to correct what they created for their greed, control and money, our forefathers fought yours until the end, now grow some patriotic balls in all States and fight for your sovereignty or lose it, it’s later than you think. God knows I’m locked and loaded and no damn illegal hispanic/latino is going to take my country away, never again. Give me Liberty or I’ll fight going down, at age 74 I still can hit a target, and I’m angrier than hell. Now grow some, for God and Country!
        How close to the border do you live Al and Dan? Just curious.

        • Al Sieber

          WIA, I live in N.W. Ariz. and have some friends that live right on the border out of Sierra Vista. I have illegals coming through here at night, I’m always locked and loaded. I like your spirit, having spent a lot of time on the “mohawk” Res. in my youth I learned a lot.

          • dan of arizona

            wia
            I live in ashfork just west of williams .we have the mexican mafia here and are pushing herion in the streets the cops have been bought off. there was a execution of a local business owner that complained to the cops that he needed them to shut them down, anyway his execution was written off as a suicide, long story short there still here and my friend is dead.Ive been living off grid for about 16 yrs and my street is heavily armed with the reputation to back it up even the cops wont come out here.

          • Al Sieber

            dan, I live in the Black Mountains, 8 miles from Oatman. I’ve been off the grid for 10 years, you live in a good spot; been there many times.

    • Ellspeth Roberts

      Growing up in a western US state as a ranch kid, we had an informal policy that was called “3S”. In case you’ve never heard of this informal policy, it stands for shot, shovel, shut-up.

  • Russ Foell

    Buy more bullets…

  • M.L.

    We are in trouble folks, deep, deep trouble. The Federal judge has had death threats from the illegals saying that it was not enough. Whatever we do, whatever we allow them to have, whatever they get away with will never be enough,including the freebies they are now enjoying. And if OB sneaks that amnesty in they will keep raping, murdering and marching for more. Don’t any of you notice that the only ones he wants to legalize is the Hispanics. You know as well as I that there are millions of other nationalities here illegally as well, but he chose to ignore them. Just is racial profiling now?

    • slickporsche

      NO it is not racial profiling, and so what if it is. I would bet that 95% of all illegals are Latino. I and millions of other Americans do not want them here, and want their deportation started immediatly.

      • http://personalliberty.com Jessica

        Actually, about 50% of illegal immigrants are Mexican. About 20% are South Americans, about 10% are Asian, about 10% are Europeans, and about 10% are Islamic radicals who come here and form sleeper cells.

        • dan of arizona

          That means 400,000 are radical muslims that are creating sleeper cells
          It only takes one with a bomb belt in a mall to make their point

  • http://personalliberty rob

    This is so disgusting. Federal government allowing “INVASION”, government and media calling it “IMMIGRATION”(will not use the word “ILLEGAL”), cowardous border states of New Mexico and California boycotting and refusing to AID a fellow state, “ILLEGALS” getting special treatment more than “LEGAL” citizens, where does this list STOP..?? If this doesn’t wake up the “LEGAL” citizens of the U.S., nothing will. Are the citizens of this nation becoming so complacent and lazy that we just roll over and say “WHATEVER”?
    CITIZENS WAKE UP!!!!!

    • slickporsche

      I think you nailed that one with you last sentence.

  • Jim

    We need not only term limits on congress but also a recall law for judges that sit on the bench and try to make a mockery of our laws and the court system in general. The very idea of an appointment for life, especially for someone with not judicial experience, who is out of step with mainstream America is not helping anyone. Some of their decisions only tend to further polarize this country.

  • J.M.R.

    the judge isjust another clinton hack yes america its wake up time, the mexicans need to do it legally or stay the hell out of our country. fox showed one of the paths that these criminals use to come to our great country, and guess what you can follow them by the trash that they leave. so you libs let them come so we can be taxed to clean up the mess they left.

  • http://yahoo RobertG

    Governor Brewer, you better get it to the supreme court before Kagen gets put in place!!! The State of Arizona should also countersue the federal government for NOT enforcing laws already on the books that would have not made it necessary for Arizona to go to such extremes.

  • crystal

    I’m not surprised by the judges ruling, she probably doesn’t comprehend the Constitution (just like most judges and attorneys we’re stuck with). Most present day rulings are against the American people and the Constitution anyway. The judges and attorneys in our country are worthless and we need a NATIONWIDE fight against them.

    • slickporsche

      Yes, a nation wide guns and ammo revolution. Grab your weapon and lets get on with it.

  • Big Daddy

    I am glad to know that U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton, a Clinton appointee was NOT influenced by that fact.

    I know a JUDGE would never use their power to help out a POLITICAL Party that had given them their position.

    I know that this “JUDGE” will not be moved into a higher position of authority by a POLITICAL Party in the future for having betrayed the USA and her citizens today.

    We would all be shocked to see something like that happen.

    Since this decision came from U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton, a Clinton appointee,

    I cannot see that POLITICS nor the DEMOCRATIC party would have influenced her decision..

    It will be VERY hard for an appeal by Arizona to be Judged fairly in U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit in San Francisco.

    Since,
    San Francisco is a self proclaimed Sanctuary (ILLEGAL under Federal Law) City.

    That makes as much since as having an Arsonist watch over a box of Matches and a can of Gasoline in the Middle of a National Forrest….

      Obviously the Federal Government has no interest in upholding their sworn Constitutional Oath’s. They have no interest in preserving the American way of life, let alone actual American lives either.
      Fire all unConstitutional Rep.’s in November.

    • Al Sieber

      Big Daddy, wouldn’t that be considered conflict of interest, or something like that, because, some cities in Calif. are suing Ariz. over the illegal immigration law? and Ariz. wouldn’t get a fair ruling. maybe that’s the plan.

      • dan of arizona

        Hey al
        cant belive that no one seems to give a dammn about the law, calif. has the same law but refuse to enforce it.The law that I posted above was on the books since 1996 but no one seems to care.I just read about how janet is calling all of us right wing radicals that are now being watched by the UN and others and are trying to enlist our solders to where the UN helmet to stop US, the home grown terrorist, and is holding meetings with the radical muslims to help her cause to protect us. If you have bumber stickers for ron paul on your car then your considered a terrorist by way of wanting the constitution enacted, how dare you not to want the things we want like socialism ,dictators ect.Well at least there listening and reading what we write.Now obumer is going to legalize all of the real terrorist that came across the open borders and make them citizens they are now planning to use the UN to file charges against US citizens of war crimes so i wonder if the jails will hold all of us or are we just going to the camps.
        I really dont think that they get it our sons and daughters are there army and they are’nt going to side with them and who has the base’s in each state fully armed not them who has the missiles not them
        If they are reading this than maybe you all should pick side now because we are the strongest military force in the world do you think we will back down
        dont think so

        • Al Sieber

          dan, I have a Ron Paul sticker on both of my trucks. I rarely don,t see any cops when I have to go to town to buy fuel, and they really don’t look at me anyways. we have a big Patriot movement here, and they’re going after the local politicans, and are gonna throw some of them out of office. taking the country back starts at the local level.

          dan,
          I think that Nobama wants us to go violent and the piece of proof I offer is this. when I bought my 9, the guy that sent my info for the background check came back in three minutes(about) and was amazed at how quick it came back. I told him I tried to keep my nose clean and he said that didn’t matter, he had seen cops applications take longer!! It would seem they WANT the very people that they say are radicals to have weapons in the chance that they will start something.
          I am a vet, a conservative, I post dislike for what is going on in Washington, and I support ALL of our vets past and present as well as our troops that are overseas now and in the future!!

      Thanks for the info, Desert Eagle 1. Can I assume she can read, or does she have someone do that for her? I’m tempted to say she must have been on Herr Obummer’s S C nominee short list.
      Now, America, let the writing campaign begin. People in all 50 states, do your civic duty, and let the judge know how you feel. As tempting as it might be, don’t use expletives to express your concern(s). My contribution will be on its way today.
      I do have relatives and friends there, just in case the judge got through law school without having to be able to READ.

        robin,
        any rights at all?!?!?!?!? hell, they have more rights than we do!!! At least more protection under the law, it seems!!!

      • Al Sieber

        Robin, if they don’t have to show I.D. when they’re pulled over, they have more rights than we do. they already have amnesty in a way. don’t be supprised if they sneak in some back door amnesty, I hear it’s in the works now.

  • Joyce from Loris

    This is not a new problem for our country. It’s been going on for years. According the the law Section 8 USC (a)(1)(A)(iv)(b)(iii),Obama, Pelosi, Reed and the rest of Congress, who have refused to enforce this law, should be impeached for knowingly harboring criminal illegal immigrants, a FEDERAL FELONY, be tried, convicted with submitted evidence, and imprisoned. These people are NOT above the laws of our land. They are citizens and, by law, are required to live by the law, just like the rest of us. Look it up. Eisenhower, as president, did a better job eliminating the illegal immigrants of his day, deporting millions in a very short period of time, and causing many to self deport because they knew the Federal Government agents were coming. Several times in our history, this has been a problem. The biggest problem came from taking American jobs. It’s all a repeat. Unemployment has risen to unsustainable levels because the jobs are filled by illegals willing to work for cheaper levels. Lyndon Johnson, as a Congressman, fought against Eisenhower’s eviction, because he was receiving kick backs from the wealthy farmers in TX who used cheap mexican labor. Even during the great DEPRESSION, when the national unemployment rate was 25%, 70% of all jobs in the Dust Bowl area were held by ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS! It’s history, and it’s repeating itself, because we Americans never make a PERMANENT SOLUTION to this problem. We can, we must, secure our borders and enforce the LAWS WE ALREADY HAVE ON THE BOOKS! Federal offense to harbor illegal immigrants. Today, they have taken yet ANOTHER path to crime by stealing people’s identity in order to have fake documentation.

    • Joyce from Loris

      Sorry, I left out the USC number. It’s Section 8 USC 1324

  • Daniel

    What I would like to know is: Is there a way to sue the Federal Government for not protecting it’s citizens along the border as they are supposed to do according to the Constitution?

    • Joyce from Loris

      Yes, but the best defense we have is to take in on a state level. If you can prove (which will not be hard) that your state if providing welfare benefits to illegal aliens, or KNOW that there are illegal aliens in the state and yet are doing NOTHING about it, you can law them under the Section 8 USC 1324 Federal Immigration and National Act of 1952. They (the government) do not want everyday citizens to know about this. This law deeds it a FEDERAL OFFENSE to harbor, employ, provide food, shelter or WATER to an illegal alien. Our own governments are breaking the law, and until every citizens of our nation stand up and yell “NO MORE”, they will continue to do so. Write every representative in your state and ask about this law. Tell everyone you know about this law, spread the word. Tell everyone to write their representatives concerning this. Once they (the government) find out that the citizens of this great nation are not as STUPID as they thought they were, they will start to take action.There is power in knowledge. And now we KNOW. Go to wikipedia, and type in Eisenhower deports illegal immigrants, 1953. Several articles will come up. READ THEM, arm yourself with knowledge so that when the weasel politicians smile, shake your hand and ask for your support, you can question their stand on these issues. You will enjoy watching their faces fall, because most of them won’t have a clue. Just because they are politicians does not mean they are aware of the LAWS. That’s what is wrong in this country today, a bunch of politicians just looking for a life time paycheck.

      • Joyce from Loris

        You may also want to go to wikipedia and type in Operation Wetback. That is what the deportation articles of that time were called. Interesting reading. The illegal immigrants have already taken over New Mexico, 80% are mexicans. California, Arizona and Texas will be next. Richardson REFUSES to enforce any illegal immigration laws. He is mexican as well. We have lost New Mexico, three others are on the verge, which state is next?

    What sickens me is that Arizona falls into the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, which I dub as the “Ninth Circus Court”, which is the most liberal based in San Francisco above all places where the cradle of liberalism is found and where many fruit-and-nut job cases reside. It’s time to get Arizona and Nevada out of the Ninth Circuit Court system by petitioning to be part of another circuit court system – our own!!!

    Well I hope all the socialist dems voters keep voting for all dictator loving democrat bastards will have an enlighting. Democrats just cann’t accept that the communist marxist gene is inbred to their socialist skulls. Omoron is just a hard core marxist and his tag along democrat party will do what ever they can to speed the destruction of the USA. The Az. turn down was just another of whorehound Clintons appointments, wait till Onumnutt’s flaky socialist asses hit the benchs. Look at how Sotamoron lied ayt her hearings anf what see did on the bench, and then we will have another dike man hater sitting on the bench. More BDB’s, brain dead bs, just like their muslim marxist appointer. You know these two lezies will do what every the phony muslim wants and anyother democrap, forget what the law says. Giving citizen ship to illegals is just another crap job law of the marxist democrats.

  • M.L.

    Thank you desert eagle 1, maybe she needs a little reminding about the 2000 Americans killed per year, including rapes and murders of our children.(Not at the hands of the drug cartell) While she contemplates whether we are racial profiling the Mexicans, who just happen to be brown. It certainly does not change the fact That Fed. Judge should have weighed the deaths of Americans against the hurt phony feelings of the Mexicans and see which way the scales of justice really lean in accordance to American law.

  • chuck b

    did anyone catch or read the ruling, the judge said they could crack down on the employers, but, not to bother the illegals they are just looking for work. only a liberal democrat judge could come up with something like that. “where are the jobs for the illegals” oh! i get it she is referring to the welfare office.

  • Howie

    Now here’s one to think about. Just what if Obama for the sake of creating another crisis should quietly and discretly offer radical terrorist by the hundreds or thousands the oppurtunity to come across the southern boarder to infaltrate the US in order to initiate Marshall Law. Is that too far out of line to imagine? So therefore he can use our military and radical muslims to subdue Americans into submission and he automatically self-proclaimeds himself dictator of the United States of North America. How far off base is this.If someone was to say that is impossible, I would like to ask them WHY. Is this scenario absolutely impossible or for that matter inconceivable for him. This is exactly what he needs to do to help bring about the NWO that he’s so commited to the elite to do.

    • Joyce from Loris

      Absolutely, I believe the same thing. Once this creep finishes disrupting everything in this nation, from health care outrage, financial bail outs, financial reform, environmental disasters, muslims, mexicans, unemployment… my God, the list goes on and on. We as a nation ARE at a breaking point and if we try to march, take a stand, scream and yell, he will declare marital law and that will end the elections coming up in November. When that happens, we all head to the woods to wait it out, I guess.

    the conservatives think they are going to win big in november, don’t you believe it, by the time november rolls around the communist media will have the goats lined up at the voting booth and the communist will win again. he has no need for a shooting war, he wins by default. default of the stupid democrats.

  • Viktor Leben

    I was reading the news report. The judge said something about her opposition won’t effect the status quo.

    In other words, Arizona waited to long to solve this problem. The law should have been passed years ago.
    Arizona’s illegal immigrants (invaders) is now to big a political force. Other states, watch and learn ! If you don’t start AGGRESSIVELY opposing this invasion you will end up the same way. Remember Arizona !

    The invading hordes are moving northward. Don’t hesitate or you’ll be conquered just like Arizona and California …

      when there was the first revolution there really wasn’t many people back then and they took on the greatest military in the world and won
      because they belived in what and who they are
      today each state has its own milita and military bases which are being held by our sons and daughters with the technical advances and trained military that can be called upon at will.So how do you think that obumer can control any thing he is not a leader he is a snake that slithers and you know what they say.

    The only time the normal process wasn’t followed, was when in 1980′s when some states voted for term limits, on their senators and reps. Daschle got it to the SC in a month. It was ruled unconistitutional, since it was a federal office holders. That was the only case I can think of.With the socialist dems and another kenyan cross red in the beltway, Holder will not want any distrubances.

  • Ellspeth Roberts

    I’m trying to figure out what all the hype is about showing papers. When I was stationed with the military in Germany (as a civilian translator) for 5 years, I got stopped at least once a week by the German police at roadside checks. I was asked for my passport and papers, and vehicle registration. I never considered not showing the necessary papers. I was not a citizen of Germany and understood that was their right – period. The quoted reasoning was they were doing random checks for known terrorists. Believe me, I learned quick to always carry my papers, especially since I was out at all hours of the day and night depending on what and where I needed to translate.

    I am a US citizen living back in the USA, and I have to show my ID to get medical treatment, pick up certain items of mail, to use a credit card, to do banking if I am not at my normal branch, etc., etc. Exactly what is the problem with asking people for their IDs. If you don’t have the proper papers, or don’t want to show them, well that’s what borders are for – go somewhere else.

    • http://www.savelakeatitlan.org Duende

      I don’t mind being asked for papers at a border. I was in Germany some years back and half the time they just waved us through and I was never stopped once in the country. I damned well don’t want to be stopped in the US once I’m across the border. This is what Hitler and all facists did.. requiring papers.. I’ll bet if Obama had asked for this to be done you’d be screaming bloody murder. Quite truthfully this whole thing may be being orchestrated by the New World Order crowd to get americans to sign on to having their papers checked.. for security purposes mind you. If I owned a gun I’d never get it registered. They’ll know who to come for right away… or maybe I would register it so I’ll know when they’re coming and get a good clean shot.

      Just kidding… I don’t own a gun (though I enjoy the skill of shooting one) and honestly believe that the solutions to the problems on this planet will never see the light of day if ones imagination is stuck in that paradigm… regardless of how seductive it is on some occasions.

      • Al Sieber

        So when you cash a check you’re not asked for I.D.? when you register a vehicle you don’t have to show who you are? when you get a job you’re not asked for a ss card and I.D. to show who you are? you full of it, or a illegal.

    the people crossing the border know this administration is not going to follow the law, those already here know its a matter of time they will be given amnesty and barry will find a way that will allow them to vote.
    this is key for the 2012 election. even if the the repubs take the house back they will not have the stomach to ire the mexicans. we have more illegals in this country than the government is telling us.
    the only way that this country will survive is to forcibly return these people to their homelands. if this recession gets worse look out there will be anarchy in the streets and we will probably have to fight for our republic.
    when we have the government allowing these people to refuse showing an id, then that should convince you something is astir.

  • Darhalaz

    We have snitches here in Phoenix who listen to police scanners and send out messages via phone calls, texts, and e-mails warning illegal immigrants to hide. That’s aiding and abetting and I believe law enforcement should locate and prosecute those who do this. If anyone can find out who is doing this criminal activity I encourage you to contact authorities – this must be stopped in order to rid our country of more illegals.

  • Jim H.

    My wife and I visited Glacier National Park this summer. The park links up with a Canadian Park to form one big park. If we crossed the border to see the other half of the park, I would be required to have a passport or birth certificate. Not to get into Canada, but to re-enter the U.S. I, a born here, lives here, full blown U.S. citizen, has to show one of those documents just to go home. Heaven forbid we ask an undocumented, illegally here person to show who they are. The victims are treated like criminals and the criminals like victims.

  • Matt Levine

    If you wish to emmigrate to another country, here’s how it’s done
    Step 1 … call the embassy of the country you wish to emmigrate to and discover the proper procedure to do so.
    Step 2 … follow the procedure to the letter. One technicality gets you sent home. PERIOD!!!
    Step 3 … always keep your papers on your person. It saves time and reduces confusion.
    HOW THE HECK HARD IS THAT !!!
    Also, it helps if you learn the basics of the language of the country you are emmigrating to BEFORE YOU EVEN START THE PROCESS!!! I am so ill and fatigued at dealing with multilingual sinage and Mc Donalds window attendants that do not speak or comprehend ENGLISH!!!
    “I’d like a “Big Mac, please” … “HUH”???
    I’ve heard a radio talk show host share this on many times!!!
    The Feds set the law. BUT, the states have the right to use that as a
    baseline and establish STRICKTER LAWS!!! Go go Arizona. Go to DC and kick BUTT!!! Gov. Brewer, take no prisoners!

    As far as I am concerned, Sheriff Joe Arpaio is a hero, and a, rightfully so, stubborn and bullheaded one. Obama and his administration need to stand down on this issue. These illegals steal OUR jobs and OUR govt services without paying taxes AND committing crimes such as FALSE ID, FALSE SOCIAL SECURITY CARDS, AND, PERHAPS, FALSE IMMIGRATION DOCUMENTS, and, here in Portland, the murder of a 15 year old girl (Dani Countryman…look it up) visiting her sister, from Texas(yep, the suspect was proven to be illegal). These people need to be incarcerated, sent home, and NEVER allowed to cross our border again for ANY reason!!! I am very sick and tired of people like Obama, our former mayor and previously, police chief(sworn to uphold the law without discretion) crying about this whole illegal flap!!! ILLEGAL MEANS “IN VIOLATION OF A LAW”, Period!!!

    Matt Levine, Portland, Oregon
    Home of a major ICE sting!!! 150+ “victims” fired, cuffed, stuffed, jailed, deported. Oh, the temp agency that they all were hired through…SHUT DOWN!!! And all of those jobs were filled by LEGALS within 2 days. Jobs WE don’t want to do??? What’s that???
