This article if from April. I didn't see it posted on FR.
I am posting it upon news today on Fox that the Dems are preparing open warfare against a SCOTUS decision to back the Arizona law. Per Fox, Dems allied with open border La Raza types will use endless lawfare and intimidation to overturn this law if it is upheld by SCOTUS.
The Supreme Court hears arguments Wednesday over Arizonas immigration-crackdown law, but Democrats are already preparing for a potential loss by saying theyll try to pass legislation stripping states of the power to enact their own immigration rules.
Sen. Charles E. Schumer, New York Democrat, said his legislation would establish federal primacy in immigration by blocking states from taking any action. That would not only preclude state law enforcement efforts like the Arizona model now before the court, but also would overturn a Supreme Court ruling last year that upheld a different Arizona law requiring businesses to verify their workers legal status.
I believe it is simply too damaging to our economy and too dangerous to our democracy to have 50 states doing 50 different things with regard to immigration policy, said Mr. Schumer, chairman of the SenateJudiciary Committees immigration subcommittee, as he convened a hearing on Arizonas crackdown law, known as S.B. 1070.
Under that law, which Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer signed in 2010, police are required to check the legal status of those who they reasonably suspect are in the country illegally. The law also requires legal immigrants to carry their papers with them at all times when in the state.
The Obama administration has sued to block the law, arguing that it interferes with the federal governments right to set immigration policy.

The States have the right to enforce Federal law even if the Feds are unwilling to do so.
This law would be superfluous and in direct contravention to the 10th Amendment.
Obviously, Chuckie, the Feds are refusing to uphold the laws. I guess we can pick and choose which laws we want to obey .. or not.
That’s the problem with lawlessness.
Chucky has a REAL problem with understanding how a Federal System is suppose to work. 50 different answers is a GOOD THING - Kind of like natural selection. The best answers become obvious, then can be copied.
This boy needs a lesson!
Dead in the water quicker than you can said "epic FAIL."
I think he should go back to worrying about and legislating wire grill cleaning brushes.
I would like to hear any evidence there has ever been a more incompetent and disastrous presidential administration than this one. They believe they are bigger than the law. In their mind, anyone who disagrees must be destroyed. This includes citizens, judges, and foreign leaders. November cannot come soon enough.
Makes sense. They can’t let the Supreme Court stand in the way of Democrat voter-recruitment efforts.
Chuckie is the head clown on the Hill who refuses to comply with the 10th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. He thinks that he has the power to take away the powers reserved to the people in the Constitution. Chuckie has been practicing this lawless power grab behavior for so long now that he behaves like a crazed heroin junkie scheming for his next fix.
Why bother, when an Executive Order will do?
Schmuckie, your bill won’t even pass the Senate, never mind the House.
When Chuckie or the mediots say "our democracy," they mean collectivized power belonging to them.
The Federal Government is, and has been remiss in their handling of one of their primary duties. What the “H” do we need the Federal Government for if they can’t handle the job they were created by the Founders to perform?
Everything beyond protection of our borders, and managing our economics, which they are also remiss is superfluous Leftist nonsense created over many years with centralizing our government as goal that needs to be eliminated, or sent to the States for their consideration as to whether they even want to bother with it.
Shrink the Federal Government by eliminating all of the Leftist Centralizing departments they created, and fire every person involved in every bureaucracy that exists to support those departments.
Fixed it for ya, Chuck.
And they’re getting worse at time goes on. I thought Demonrats were hypocrites and fools decades ago, yet never did I think they would be this effed up.
They merely reflect a large segment of the population
I doubt that the Senate would ever pass such a bill; and the probability of its doing so would be further diminished if the GOP were to take control of the upper chamber next January, as it very well could.
And, even if this proposed bill were (somehow) to pass the Senate, it would surely be a no-go in the House...
