Skip to comments.White House A Sore Winner On Arizona Ruling
Posted on 06/26/2012 10:23:48 AM PDT by IBD editorial writer
The Law: If there's any doubt the Supreme Court upheld the most substantial elements of Arizona's law to enforce U.S. immigration law, take a look at the scorched-earth response from the Obama administration to punish the state.
The Supreme Court voted 8-0 Monday to uphold a key provision of Arizona's S.B. 1070 that requires state troopers to check the immigration status of people suspected of being in the U.S. illegally after they've been caught committing other crimes.
That acknowledges the reality that the unlicensed man barreling down a desert highway with 40 people sweltering in his van might just be doing more than driving too fast, and that the bearded man caught with bomb-making tools and al-Qaida literature in his car might have more than chemistry on his agenda.
Three other provisions of the Arizona law were thrown out by the court, thereby leaving illegals the "right" to solicit day jobs on public streets, the "right" to not carry the same identification they are required to carry in their home countries and the "right" to not be deported after officers suspect them of crimes here.
But after the Obama administration and its media allies crowed that the court ruling was a win, their fury over their loss on the one provision became obvious.

After this nonsense, I, for one will have NO problem What-so-ever spiking the football if the health debacle is struck down.
Jan Brewer says that Obama Lost and Arizona won in the SCOTUS.
Brewer: Supreme Court’s Arizona decision a ‘victory for the rule of law’
I never had a problem with so doing. ;-)
The POS president is such an egomanic he cannot abide by anyone challenging him.
I hope that bum goes down in flames this november. In fact, if he loses, I expect to go to DC on the 20th of Jan just to say good bye and good riddance to him, in loud terms.
Yesterday's decision just does not make sense to me.
yeah if Roberts doesn't screw the pooch again like he did with the Az ruling
—Obviously, the part that was upheld stung them bigtime.—
Before the vote, to the general public, that part was all there was. Most people were not even aware of the ones that failed. And that means that, at the end of the day, to the average american, AZ won against the WH in a unanimous decision.
Odinga can’t quite bend the rules far enough to get what he wants so he has a hissy fit. FUBO!
Are the spineless gutless GOP going to do ANYTHING to stop this guy???? He’s got 6 more months of damage to do - and I hear NOTHING from Boehner/McConnell/Romney/ et al.
Which is why Congress SHOULD spike the ball when they shut down obamacare.
Isn’t Obamaland great?
Now go pay your taxes. Your government is broke. :)
Fanatics rarely respond well to being called to account. You just have to defeat them in detail.
CRACKA needs to call that number and complain about being profiled as a racist...oh never mind we are the privileged and have lost equal protection for it.
Would you like Congress to pass another law to stop Obama?
You do realize that if Roberts didn't 'screw the pooch' the ruling would have reverted to the 9th circuit ruling (due to the tie) and the one win that was achieved would have been lost.
He owns this problem.
That makes sense!
The ruling says they can ask for ID. Where’s the Civil Rights issue in that??
30% of the population is Hispanic.
They don’t have to be illegal, just someone who is complaining about being “profiled”. The local “activists” will be in the Hispanic churches, busily canvassing for complainers. Deciding what and who they’re going to sue, then lining up a few individuals to be the actual plaintiffs while the group hides in the weeds is one of the favorite activities of the professional race-baiters. Holder has now decided to engage in the same charade.
Doesn't matter. This is Obama trying to bury Arizona in complaints and investigations in reprisal for trying to defend itself against the illegal invasion by enforcing the Federal laws that Obama won't.
What a legacy he'll leave behind....America's first dictator. He has done absolutely "0" good for our country. All he did was pay people off and carry on his "I hate Whitey" campaign.
Where's Michelle lately??
after the Obamacare decision....what do you think of stealth marxist Roberts NOW???? Impeach Roberts!
Today’s ruling do not change the facts of the Arizona ruling but I do agree with getting rid of Roberts and today may very well provide the urgency to elect enough congressmen to accomplish it.
