you sir are correct on all counts...

the feds exceeded their authority by trying to force local police officers not to do their jobs...

arizona exceeded it’s authority by trying to pass it’s own immigration laws...

The scotus got it right..

Perhaps if this argument were framed in a different way, say, suing for damages caused by the fed refusing to enforce immigration law???

And would add:

The lower court exceeded its authority by
trying to enjoin Section 2(B).

I haven’t read Scalia’s dissent, but another poster on this thread mentioned it (and the fact that it discusses Dumb0’s decision last week to “specifically” NOT enforce provisions of Federal law as not having been part of the original SCOTUS SB1070 hearing) as providing perhaps an opening for States to have standing at SCOTUS to REQUIRE the feds to enforce immigration laws.

We shall see. Next up the House contempt citation and then Dumb0Care decision on Thursday.

Lot’s of ammo out there this week for Dumb0 to shoot himself in the foot.

“arizona exceeded it’s authority by trying to pass it’s own immigration laws...”

That’s right. You immigrate to the US, not Arizona.
