Calif. wants Arizona immigration law overturned
THE ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER ^ | March 28, 2012 | THE ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER

Posted on 03/30/2012 7:54:13 AM PDT by Pelham

SACRAMENTO – California has asked the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn Arizona's tough immigration law, saying it would drive illegal immigrants into other states. The Arizona law, passed two years ago, has been largely blocked by court order because of legal challenges. Among other things, it makes in a crime to be in the country illegally and to seek work.

The U.S. Supreme Court has scheduled an April 25 hearing, and a ruling is expected in June.

California Attorney General Kamala Harris has joined 10 other states in asking that the Arizona law be overturned. The other states are New York, Connecticut, Hawaii, Illinois, Iowa, Maryland, Massachusetts, Oregon, Rhode Island and Vermont.

In documents filed Tuesday, Harris said the law exceeds state authority, conflicts with national policy and would drive illegal immigrants into other states.

"There are currently millions of undocumented immigrants living in the United States," the brief states. "The apprehension, detention, and removal of these immigrants necessarily implicates the rights, liberties, and personal freedoms of human beings. Most of these undocumented immigrants...

Sanctuary cities are old hat. Nationwide is the way to go.

Retards. they should push to stop illegal immigration in their own state and kick the Feds butt to do the same.

If they like the illegal situation so much that they want to do nothing to suppress it, why complain about getting more of what they obviously support already?

Normal, law abiding, right thinking, conservative Californians want no such thing.

But we’re not represented anymore, and haven’t been for a long time.

Don’t tar ALL Californians with the same brush! Many more Reaganites still here than the press lets on.

Interesting justification for overturning a law - because it works.

Using the same idiotic argument - couldn't high welfare benefit paying States sue another State that wishes to reduce benefits under the rationale that welfare benefit seekers would flee to the other States?

Is not free movement of people between the States - and different laws and circumstances - fifty ‘laboratories of Republic governance’- one of the desired outcomes of having fifty semi-autonomous States?

Wait, I thought California liked illegal aliens so much that they forbid any kind of police-ICE cooperation, e-verify, etc. How very puzzling indeed that they are afraid that more illegals would find their way into California’s “sanctuary cities”.

No.

The whole reason for California’s sanctuary cities is to encourage, persuade and reward illegal aliens for coming there.

Well then California (its politicians) is just racist not wanting more illegal immigrants! Just declare a few more sanctuary cities, why should it matter if you get them via Arizona or straight from the motherland if you love them so much that you will infringe the rights of citizens, even their right to live,for them?

California and New York-two bullies re:illegal immigration and the Second Amendment.

It was all over the radio newscasts here in AZ yesterday. The number of illegals here has dropped by a couple hundred thousand, and the lament is it’s hurting our economy since all these people aren’t here to buy stuff and contribute to the economy.

Guess they went to Ca to help there instead.

California lost that fight years ago, when the Democrats, the GOP-e, and one judge conspired to kill Prop 187.

Turn about is fair play... Arizona should ask the U.S. Supreme Court to not only uphold, but insist that CA follow Arizona’s tough immigration law, saying it would drive illegal immigrants back to their home lands.

I'm sure AZ has a whole laundry list of complaints about CA. After all, the states surrounding CA are suffering with the escapees who settle there and try to Californize their new surroundings.

"SACRAMENTO – California has asked the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn Arizona's tough immigration law, saying it would drive illegal immigrants into other states."

Typical California logic.

Does the endless sunshine actually bake people's brains?

It never occurs to those brain-cooked robots to enact Arizona's law for California.

Maybe they smoke so much pot in Sacramento that the legislators can't help inhaling cannabinol, but who elects these morons?

"Normal, law abiding, right thinking, conservative Californians want no such thing."

Everybody knows that, Tiger, but the Neanderthals have taken over the Golden State and filled it with abnormal, law breaking, Leftists who do.

Back in the '90s, I worked hard to save the Golden State. I put up "Vote Republican" signs all over the place. In San Francisco they stayed up. In Marin County, they were jerked down as soon as I put them up--even when I put them up in inaccessable but visible places in the middle of the night!

My California children--I am very proud to say!--are normal, law abiding, right thinking, and conservative! In fact--all my children are!

“So... does California want illegal aliens or don’t they?”

Politicians and businessmen who employ them in preference to Americans want them.

Plain old Californians like me want them sent packing.

SoCal used to be American suburbia. It transformed into a graffiti-scarred gang-ridden crowded colony of Mexico in a very short amount of time, and it couldn’t have occurred without the help of Democrats and the Dubya/ Karl Rove wing of the GOP.

How Stupid...How Foolish...How Ignorant...

With all the problems we have, California begins a Cold War between the states, how long before we are no longer One Nation. This cold war could become hot and it would be the deadliest, most tragic war in all human history.

One may say this could never happen, but recently I’ve seen so much, I previously thought could never happen.

I remember when two other members of that scumbag wing, Bill Bennett and Jack Kemp, lobbied for the defeat of Prop 187, which nevertheless passed convincingly and was then simply discarded with a shrug by the rats and then by Arnold. That proposition was passed in 1994 and was actually (and accurately) named the "Save Our State" initiative. Oh well... Party over oops, out of time.

Buh-bye, California.

Curious. What are the unemployment numbers before and now?
And, the numbers on the demand for emergency services (police, 911, etc.?
Public schools?
Crime?

You get the picture. If these numbers drop over time, as they should, then the arguement is indisputable. Limiting illegals in the area reduces costs and promotes more safety. (note that the crime numbers may increase for spike before they trend downward.)

The other states have no right to say anything about Arizona’s law. I know some states like in the deep South and some Western states are very resentful when someone from the outside try and interfere with their internal matters.

This is equivalent to going to a neighbor’s house and start telling them how to do things. If I had a neigbor come over and start nit picking things I did inside my house or yard, a couple phrases would be “p*** off” or “f*** off” or MYOB.

There’s a lot of Californians cheering Arizona SB1070.

Don’t pay too much attention to what our politicians say. They are part of the Treason Lobby, and that goes for the latino suck-ups in the GOP as well as the Democrats here.
