ACLU vs. SB-1070 again [You won't believe it]
Arizona Daily Star ^

Attorney Dan Pochoda of the American Civil Liberties Union, whose organization represents some of the challengers, said Bolton's new ruling provides an opportunity to present a new set of arguments about why SB 1070 is unconstitutional.

He said arguments range from the likelihood of racial profiling to whether the time spent questioning someone about legal status amounts to an illegal arrest.

This order does not address the merits of those claims; it only clears the way for the plaintiffs to make their case in court.

The lawsuit was brought by organizations like Friendly House and Coalicion de Derechos Hermanos, along with individual plaintiffs who said they would be immediately affected by SB 1070. These individuals said they fear they will targeted because of their physical characteristics or their limited ability to speak English.

One trait about the Left that has my grudging admiration: They never accept “no” for an answer. They forever probe, push, pressure for some form of a loophole or legal weak spot. Conservatives could learn much from these tactics.

Media portray the left/right tension as two sides to an issue. I see conservatism, however, as the main body; and "progressives" are like cancer cells. They are never happy or well-intentioned; they just want power and will destroy anything to get it.

We need to strengthen our "immune system", which once consisted of Judeo-Christian values and the best traditions of Western civilization.
