What would happen if everybody who got injured or killed or otherwise criminally affected by an illegal sat down & sued the Federal Government for not stopping such illegal from coming into the county in the first place???
Even a class action lawsuit might get some attention from the attention -deficit occupant of the Oval Office.
The ruling was based on that fact that the federal government has preempted the immigration control field from the states with laws that have been on the books for years.
Better arm up— A country that doesn’t enforce its laws is lawless!
The papers requirement would inevitably have gotten some USA citizens an arrest record for “walking around looking Mexican,” so it wasn’t necessarily such a wonderful idea.
But what does Obama really expect out of police. That they subject lily white Americans nabbed in a brawl to the same immigration status check as Hispanics, just to prove they are being fair? This is TSA style equality of idiocy.
Since the dead can vote, why can’t they sue....
It’s sure funny how, when faced with two viable candidates one of which is consistently odious and one of which is haphazardly odious, so many puritanically refuse to help the haphazardly odious one beat the other out.
"Haphazard"? Are you seriously trying to imply that his core liberalism is inadvertent?
It’s somewhat fortunate for us that fools do not know when to shut their mouths.
Mitt has the potential to serve up any individual item that Barack might. But not all of them. Barack does not waffle.
