DISASTROUS ruling for AZ and states. States are going to have NO control over immigration. None. Zero.
I’ve been saying all along, and received much ridicule, this is NOT a states rights conservative Court. This is a big federal power SCOTUS. I don’t care what the O Care ruling is, don’t read the headlines, read the decision.
None of the remarks posted seem to understand any of this ruling and are used as an excuse to bash the Court, Bush and just sound stupid.

Anyway, the key point I was making was, when this guy laid out a bunch of things that he used to buttress his claim to being a conservative, the thing that stuck out me was this: "...I believe Congress as it is organized under the Constitution (i.e. both houses being elected on solely geographic criteria) is no longer the best-suited body to represent the diversity of people in the United States..."
What is happening in Arizona is a apt illustration of why they are SO wrong, the desires of brain dead liberals like this guy to rewrite the Constitution to make it less amenable to States needs. (As if it isn't already less amenable that it should be right now.)
People in Washington D.C. or New York don't have the same issues as people in southern Arizona, New Mexico or Texas. They REALLY, REALLY don't when it comes to immigration and the burden it places on a community. This is PRECISELY why the founders wanted states rights, and tried to write the Constitution to limit the power of the federal government...because one size doesn't fit all.
But ALL liberals have this in common: They STRIVE for one-size-fits-all approaches.
