Obama administration sues to block Alabama immigration law
fox4kc ^ | 08/01/11 | Reuters

Posted on 08/01/2011 2:43:53 PM PDT by Doogle

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Obama administration on Monday sued to block enforcement of Alabama's new immigration law, widely considered to be the toughest measure in the United States to try to crack down on illegal immigrants.

The law, known as H.B. 56, was signed by Republican Governor Robert Bentley in June and is due to take effect on September 1. Civil rights groups brought a separate lawsuit challenging the law about a month ago.

...Such dedication by the Federal Government to destroy the Rule of Law and all respect for the legal system to create discord and chaos. So, like Marxists intent on destroying the “United” States.

Right on cue, that’s why the DOJ staffed up with more Civil Rights attorneys than any other in history.

They care more about foreign national lawbreakers than citizens...

They care about the teat suckers like unions, government bureucrats and the dependent classes than the taxpaying private sector worker.

Obama is a Communist who enjoys theft and flouting the rule of law.

Good luck with that budget thing.

If most Democrats don’t wake up to reality, we are doomed. Their stupidity and delusions and stupor amazes me. I wonder if they have any brain.

But then, I’ve read 1984 and understand the constant Doublespeak and agitprop in MSM and control of words and the “allowed” message. There are no Winston’s out there, but we know his soul was crushed by the state anyhow, in the end.

The unconstitutional powers used by this government has to be destroyed soon or it is too late.

There are also a lot of religious organizations in AL coming out against this bill. I came across a story a few weeks ago about this particular group based out of Birmingham. Sorry, I can’t remember the name of the group. This group’s website said they were dedicated to social justice. I know that comes as no shock to people here on FR, though.

Found it. The name of the group is Greater Birmingham Ministries. Here is an article outlining the lawsuit they filed. Here is GBM's homepage, but if you go to their Who We Are and Where We Came From page you will see GBM is an expression of the commitment to social justice and to mercy and compassion for all which is found in the core beliefs of these faith communities.

Overturning the rule of law; flooding the country with illegals; releasing criminals; pitting one group against another; stoking the unions into thug tactics.....

This is standard DESTABILIZATION (the 2nd phase of Communist takeover). The 1st phase is DEMORALIZATION (where you ‘educate’ citizens to accept this nonsense and stop fighting back b/c they’ve lost any moral compass).

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, nothing less than a total removal of every politician in Washington DC will eliminate the problem. I honestly don’t know if 2012 can get here soon enough to stop the destruction of our beloved USA at the hands of a confessed marxist.

"Today's action makes clear that setting immigration policy and enforcing immigration laws is a national responsibility that cannot be addressed through a patchwork of state immigration laws," Attorney General Eric Holder said in a statement.

Alabama's Tough New Immigration Law Can Withstand Legal Challenges, Experts Say
Fox News ^ | June 11, 2011
FR Posted on Saturday, June 11, 2011 by jazusamo

Alabama's new law cracking down on illegal immigrants will likely survive legal challenges from advocacy groups that say it is unconstitutional and racist, analysts told Fox News. The law, which takes effect Sept. 1, empowers police to arrest people suspected of being an illegal immigrant if they are stopped for another reason and requires businesses and schools to verify whether workers and students are in the country lawfully. It also makes it a crime to knowingly transport or shelter illegal immigrants.

As soon as Republican Gov. Robert Bentley signed the bill into law Thursday, the ACLU and Southern Poverty Law Center were vowing to defeat it in court. "It is clearly unconstitutional. It's mean-spirited, racist, and we think a court will enjoin it," said Mary Bauer, legal director for the Southern Poverty Law Center. "By signing this bill into law, Gov. Bentley has codified official discrimination in the state of Alabama," said Cecillia Wang, director of the ACLU Immigrants' Rights Project. "We will take action to keep this law from going into effect to ensure that the civil rights and liberties of all Alabamans are protected."

Legal experts told Fox News that they expect the case to head to the Supreme Court where they believe the state will prevail. "I think the states have the right to do this," said Jay Sekulow, chief counsel for the American Center for Law and Justice. "I think it will be successful." (Excerpt) Read more at foxnews.com ..

The goal is to import and grant amnesty to enough leftist voters to allow them to control all 3 branches of government forever. But it's not just Dems.

Romney believes that one way to attract more minorities to the GOP is to pass immigration reform before the next election, saying the issue becomes demagogued by both parties on the campaign trail.

Nothing good has come from this plague of lawbreakers violating our borders. Illegals are a national security threat. They are conspiring to tear down democracy aidede and abetted by their home countries...........and the US govt.

WE NEED TO ASK THIS OVER AND OVER AGAIN TO ANYONE WHO'LL LISTEN Why is it lawbreakers have all their home countries.... the US govt and a succession of US presidents ..... defending their "rights?" And not even our own govt is protecting American interests?

THIS JUST IN News reports say Mexico, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and Peru are conspiring to collude with The Anti-Defamation League, The American Civil Liberties Union, the Southern Poverty Law Center and several other civil and immigrant rights groups to infringe on US sovereignty to make laws as we see fit. The co-conspirators filed a federal class-action lawsuit against Georgia's law and are now asking a judge to halt the measure pending the outcome of their case.

Perry is even worse.

Perry sucking up to ACORN.

2005 Houston Chronicle pic depicting Perry as an advocate for
"affordable housing," and "lending law reform" (read sub-prime defaults).
(Some of Perry's choices for WH jobs?)

REFERENCE Federal government grants to ACORN---2003-2006
I guess Perry knew all about these (/snix)
:


<><> Dept of Housing and Urban Development: $8.2 million between 2003 and 2006; $1.6 million to ACORN affiliates.

<><> EPA $100,000 grant to ACORN in 2004 for a Louisiana Justice Project, which removed lead from the homes of low income families.

<><> Justice Dept grant in 2005 for a juvenile delinquency program.

===================================

According to later research, 40% of ACORN's operations were found to be funded through numerous grants it receives from various governmental entities. ACORN also receives funding from a variety of tax-exempt private charitable organizations: the Bauman Family Foundation, George Soros' Open Society Institute, the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation and from corporate foundations, including JP Morgan Chase Foundation, Ben & Jerry's foundation, Bank of America Charitable Foundation, and Citigroup, as well as the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the Ford Foundation, and tax-exempt foundations affiliated with the founder of UPS.

=======================================

Senate Finance Committee Study (led by Sen Charles Grassley)

ACORN comprises a mind-boggling 94 different affiliates, that amounts to "a big shell game," a biting Senate Finance Committee study shows.

The study, by the staff of Sen Charles Grassley (R-Iowa), reveals four ACORN charity groups give more than half their revenue to taxable entities that engage in "impermissible lobbying and political activity."

ACORN and it’s subsidiaries for decades have moved taxpayer money into their own pockets and into the left-wing Marxist machine.

Sen Charles Grassley's documents show leaders of ACORN community groups transferred several million dollars in charitable and government money-----meant for the poor---- to parts of the group that have political (and sometimes profit-making) missions.

Sen Grassley's documents indicate that ACORN's tax-exempt groups----along with its tangled web of allied organizations---- used more than half their charitable and public money in 2006 to pay other ACORN affiliates.

ACORN also appears to have been involved in improper use of pension funds ..... some of the founder Rathke's embezzlment was apparently taken from the pension fund using ACORN's American Express card.

This displacement of funding led to the creation of a complex repayment system in which accused embezzler Dale Rathke owed ACORN, and ACORN in turn, owed ABA, which, for its part, wrote off part of the money. (Excerpt) Read more at spectator.org ........

==================================================

Perry endorsed 2008 prez candidate Rudy Giuliani (RINO Rudy is an ex-Dem
who is persona non grata on FR. Mayor Rudy established New York City as
"sanctuary city" for illegals---handing over city services on a silver platter).

Folks, the clue to unlock mysteries like this is within our grasp. It’s right there in front of us.

Our most sound citizens today, have joined together to form the Tea Party. Who champions them?

The Left calls them terrorists, and the Republicans calls them childish and unrealistic.

The goal for both main parties isn’t to garner new votes for themselves, it’s to swamp good citizen with folks who don’t give a damn about the U.S., and more importantly will only look out for themselves.

Sound citizens need not apply. Sound new citizens are not needed.

Screw the Constitution, full speed ahead. There, both main parties are happy...

They both want unconstitutional governance. They’re getting it. Onward to the Left, comrades.
