Judge blocks parts of Arizona immigration law

PHOENIX (AP) - A federal judge dealt a serious rebuke to Arizona’s immigration law on Wednesday when she put most of the crackdown on hold just hours before it was to take effect.

The ruling by U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton sets up a lengthy legal battle as Arizona fights to enact the nation’s toughest-in-the-nation law. Republican Gov. Jan Brewer said the state likely appeal the ruling and seek to get the judge’s order overturned.

But for now, opponents of the law have prevailed: The provisions that angered opponents will not take effect, including sections that required officers to check a person’s immigration status while enforcing other laws.

The judge also delayed parts of the law that required immigrants to carry their papers at all times, and made it illegal for undocumented workers to solicit employment in public places - a move aimed at day laborers. In addition, the judge blocked officers from making warrantless arrests of suspected illegal immigrants.

I am not, by nature, an anarchist. I love this nation, I have fought for this nation all of my adult life and I continue to fight for Her today. The furthest thing from my mind would be the demise of the United States of America and it being brought about due to MY actions or words.

But, I am thinking, more and more every day, perhaps anarchy, rebellion, is the only option left for those of us that want to save America and return her to some sense of order, legality and greatness. We were born of rebellion, and rebellion may be required for a re-birth of America to take place.

It is quite obvious that our Federal government has no intention of doing anything to address the issues at hand.

Sure, there’s a chance that a U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals might overturn the decision of U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton, it’s a possibility, it can happen, but an appeal on this one goes before the 9th Circuit Court in San Francisco. There it becomes a distinct possibility that AZ SB-1070 will disappear down the wormhole for all time, never to be heard from again.

The law was signed by Brewer in April and immediately revived the national debate on immigration, making it a hot-button issue in the midterm elections. The law has inspired similar law elsewhere, prompted a boycott against the state and led an unknown number of illegal immigrants to leave the state.

What has happened to STATES RIGHTS?

Doesn’t the Tenth Amendment come into play? The U.S. government isn’t doing anything to enforce immigration law, or anything noticeable to remove illegals and secure the U.S. border. Why then should individual states not be allowed the authority to protect their sovereignty even if the United States refuses to do so?

I’m not a Constitutional scholar, nor am I an expert in the interpretation OF the Constitution, but it seems to me that STATES should have the authority to govern themselves in the way the state and it’s voters see fit to govern.

Alien and Sedition Acts

When the Federalists passed the Alien and Sedition Acts in 1798, Thomas Jefferson and James Madison secretly wrote the Kentucky and Virginia Resolutions, which provide a classic statement in support of states’ rights. According to this theory, the federal Union is a voluntary association of states, and if the central government goes too far each state has the right to nullify that law. As Jefferson said in the Kentucky Resolutions:

Resolved, that the several States composing the United States of America, are not united on the principle of unlimited submission to their general government; but that by compact under the style and title of a Constitution for the United States and of amendments thereto, they constituted a general government for special purposes, delegated to that government certain definite powers, reserving each State to itself, the residuary mass of right to their own self-government; and that whensoever the general government assumes undelegated powers, its acts are unauthoritative, void, and of no force: That to this compact each State acceded as a State, and is an integral party, its co-States forming, as to itself, the other party….each party has an equal right to judge for itself, as well of infractions as of the mode and measure of redress.

Holder: US to watch Arizona for racial profiling

Holder: US to watch Arizona for racial profiling

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Justice Department hasn’t ruled out filing a second lawsuit challenging Arizona’s immigration law if evidence shows racial profiling at work, Attorney General Eric Holder says.

The Obama administration sued Arizona last week, arguing that the state is impinging on federal responsibilities for dealing with immigration. The state law requires police, while enforcing other laws, to question a person’s immigration status if there’s reasonable suspicion the person is in the country illegally. It also requires legal immigrants to carry their immigration documents.

The suit didn’t deal with concerns about racial profiling so that it could focus on the most serious problem with the law, Holder said in an interview broadcast Sunday on CBS’”Face the Nation.” In six months or a year, his department might look into the law’s impact on racial profiling, he said.

“If that was the case, we would have the tools and we would bring suit on that basis,” Holder said.

Holder: US to watch Arizona for racial profiling

So, the U.S. is going to be watching Arizona for instances of racial profiling? That makes me wonder, does Holder, Obama and the DOJ think Americans aren’t watching them? Do they really believe that their shenanigans have gone unnoticed?

Do they believe that dropping charges against the New Black Panthers, over what was, without a doubt, very serious acts of racism and voter intimidation have gone unnoticed?

My accusations of racism and voter intimidation are founded in the contents of the above video, and those accusations are irrefutable in MY opinion.

Armed thugs, spewing hate speech against WHITE people, thugs dressed in some sort of paramilitary garb, at least, I think it’s supposed to be paramilitary, truth be known they look like ghetto trash street thugs, but the very presence of those two cretins at a polling place is voter intimidation in the mind of any thinking individual.

The Obama administration wouldn’t admit that this was reverse racism, not if their lives depended on it. The fact of the matter is this, their POLITICAL lives DO depend on it!

The vast majority of Americans are standing in support of Arizona and Gov. Jan Brewer for the fearless efforts that she and her state are showing this nation. That support will resonate when we get to the November elections.

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer, who defends the state immigration law as constitutional, said she believes federal officials would have included racial profiling in the suit if they thought it was an issue.

Gov. Brewer is very correct in that assumption I believe. If the DOJ, or it’s leader, Attorney General Eric Holder had ANY doubt, any thought that racial profiling was going to take place, they would be all over it.

Arizona boycott backed by Milwaukee County Board panel

Arizona boycott backed by Milwaukee County Board panel

Milwaukee County would boycott doing business with firms in Arizona to protest that state’s tough immigration law, under a measure endorsed Thursday by a County Board panel.

The county would avoid new contracts with Arizona firms or the state of Arizona and possibly discontinue any current contracts with firms in that state, under a resolution unanimously approved by the board’s finance committee. It also would bar county employees from travel to conferences in Arizona.

The aim would be to punish the state for the immigration law Arizona enacted last month that makes it a crime for immigrants to fail to carry immigration documents and gives police broad power to detain a suspected illegal immigrant.

Supervisors Peggy West and Elizabeth M.Coggs called the Arizona law racist.

“It reminds me of the days of apartheid in South Africa,�? said Coggs.

The resolution goes to the full County Board Thursday.

Arizona boycott backed by Milwaukee County Board panel

You know, once in a while I get some really AWESOME emails. Today was one of those days.

Mr. Chuck, one of my very loyal, and long time readers, sent me a YouTube link that proves, beyond a shadow of a doubt, what we all have long known. Liberals are STUPID! Do you doubt that? See the video. The IDIOT running off at the mouth is Milwaukee County Supervisor Peggy West. The same Peggy West mentioned in the above story.

Elizabeth M. Coggs and Peggy West are a couple of very disillusioned people. For one thing, there is NOTHING racist about enforcing U.S. law or State law. Illegal is an act of being, it’s not a race.

It reminds you of the days of apartheid in South Africa Ms. Coggs? Seriously? Apartheid?

Apartheid was a RACIST exercise if ever there was one. I’m pretty sure that the Blacks in Africa aren’t there illegally though. In fact, I’m fairly certain that they were in Africa LONG before the white man. What happened to Blacks in South Africa was RACIST. Enforcing immigration law is NOT racist, it’s enforcing the law!

After some serious thought, I am going to have to say, West is not stupid, she’s a MORON. Coggs is a MORON too, a very STUPID moron.

Milwaukee should be ashamed of itself for ever letting these 2 get in a position of power. I only hope that neither one has children, the gene pool needs to be cleaned, and these MORONS are a great place to start.
