The President said at a news conference that the new program is "the right thingto do" in light of Congress's failure to pass the Administration's proposed revision of the Immigration Act. Perhaps it is, though Arizona may not think so. But to say, as the Court does, that Arizona contradicts federal law by enforcing applications of the Immigration Act that the President declines to enforce boggles the mind.
The Court opinion's looming specter of inutterable horror--"[i]f §3 of the Arizona statute were valid, every State could give itself independent authority to prosecute federal registration violations," seems to me not so horrible and even less looming. But there has come to pass, and is with us today, the specter that Arizona and the States that support it predicted: A Federal Government that does not want to enforce the immigration lawsas written, and leaves the States' borders unprotected against immigrants whom those laws would exclude. So the issue is a stark one. Are the sovereign States at themercy of the Federal Executive's refusal to enforce the Nation's immigration laws?
Re: Rubio. He jumped the shark yesterday on Meet The Greggy not supporting the Arizona immigration law.
SB1070 got it right on the head soup to nuts....
Doesn’t Feceral law trump State law?
no.”feceral law” says when ya gotta go,ya gotta go
Why is this guy calling in a show to tell us he is frustrated with this ruling jeopardizing his job??
He’s a Border Patrol Agent.
You said the same thing I did. Feceral law RULES over state law.
Rush gave away another Apple laptop. It’s hilarious when he does it. The caller was a Border Agent and he was refusing to take it, but sanity prevailed
I realize that. I would assume all BPAgents would be frrustrated...it’s a given. That’s why I’m confused why this guy would risk a 25 yr career just expressing what all the agents would express.
..and I guess signed by Rushbo. Totally worth it then...lol
Also, comments from live ScotusBlog:
Justice Scalia would uphold the Arizona statute in toto.
Justice Scalia began his dissent by saying that he would uphold all parts of the Arizona law.
Justice Scalia is not only dissenting from the bench, but he has produced a written copy of the bench statement for the press. It is 7 pages long.
And he read it sitting on the bench which is unusual.
Usually the Supremes write their opinion and let everyone read it for themselves.
Obama has already ordered the Feds to refuse the calls on cases from Arizona.
Yup. Scalia feels strongly about this!!! Some saying he read an angry statement, but is it a criticism from the Dums or an objective observation? Don't know.
I knew of his statement from the live ScotusBlog and that Scalia was making a copy available to the press.
What took so long for a link? It's still hard to find.
It sent a tingle up my leg when I read it. :-)
BTW: In the full court opinion, Thomas also wrote a dissenting opinion. I haven't read it yet.:
