Judge Strikes Key Provisions of South Carolina Immigration Law
FoxNews.com ^ | 12./22/11 | AP

Posted on 12/22/2011 11:42:55 AM PST by ColdOne

A federal judge on Thursday blocked three key provisions of South Carolina's controversial law cracking down on illegal immigration.

U.S. District Judge Richard Gergel granted the federal government's request for an injunction against the law that's set to take effect Jan. 1.

The ruling applies to portions that require law officers to check the status of anyone they stop for something else and suspect is in the country illegally. Gergel also halted the implementation of sections pertaining to the transportation of illegal immigrants and immigrant registration cards.

Gergel has denied the state's request that he suspend all court hearings

And the Black-Robed Priests strike again, eviscerating a worthy tool to combat illegals.

And Faux-Obama and AP-Obama are all over it.

Because Obama declares it (whatever the it is) everyone must obey. Whoa, we’re getting a little (a lot) dictatorial these days. Whoever thought that stopping illegals and asking their status would be against the law? Has the Supreme Court ruled on the Arizona suit yet?

Why?
His solution is amnesty as “we can’t deport them”. He is part of the problem, not solution.

It appears that the libs just keep going from court to court, escalating their case until they come to a friendly (Marxist, as you would say) judge. This judge then rules in their favor and BAM, they get their way.

Since it is the DOJ which is suing them, South Carolina should suspend all cooperation with the Feds on criminal investigations pending the outcome of this case.

The SC governor & Repub legislators should simply tell 0dumb0's appointed judge to go E'ff himself.... that SC will continue to implement & enforce the law as it was passed.

Does that mean relatives of Americans from all backgrounds and countries can move to America -- no questions asked? We should turn back in their faces.

When o When are these governors going to grow a set and tell the Federal judge to get lost. They have no jurisdiction over a sovereign state. Only SCOTUS does. The constitution is very clear.

And the Black-Robed Priests strike again, eviscerating a worthy tool to combat illegals.

In 1994 California passed Proposition 187 to establish a state-run citizenship screening system and prohibit illegal aliens from using health care, public education, and other social services in the U.S. State of California. Voters passed the proposed law as a referendum in November 1994, citing economic concerns. Majority rules, right? Wrong.

The law was challenged in a legal suit and found unconstitutional by a federal court. In 1999, Governor Gray Davis halted state appeals against the ruling.

At that point I realized that the people no longer have a voice in how this country operates. We've been co-opted by federal bureaucrats and a judicial system that ignores the demands of the people and merrily proceeds to build its utopian welfare state. It uses any means necessary, including voter fraud, to accomplish its goals.

Many Californians here warned the same dictatorial policies were headed to other states. We were met with hoots about "land of fruits and nuts," and "we hope California falls into the ocean." Welcome to the future, FRiends.

He is part of the problem, not solution.

Back when it was just accepted the House of Reps would forever be rat, he engineered and pulled off their overthrow. Similarly, it is given there is little we can do about the black-robed tyrants who usurp the Constitutional will of the sovereign people. Here is his solution to Marxist Jugdes.

Let me understand this...a leftist, Marxist judge rules against a state law and the state must cease and desist right away. But....a Federal Judge rules that Obamacare is unconstitutional and no implementation of any kind should be allowed to move forward until the Supreme Court gives its final ruling and his order is completely ignored and billions are spent on implementation?

These autocratic black robed bastards are a true barometer of the corruption in our country, and for that matter a preview of the tyranny to come if they’re not stopped. It should be obvious to all but the most obtuse that this present federal government has nothing but contempt for the whole notion of government by consent of the governed.

Isn’t it amazing all the things they allow cops to do, even confiscating various items for asset forfeiture without probable cause or warrant, yet they can’t ID possible illegals? Within the entire realm of police powers given by the court, this is pretty minor.
