Skip to comments.Democrats plan bill to undo Arizona immigration law if it is upheld by court
Posted on 04/23/2012 6:33:58 PM PDT by mandaladon
Senate Democrats are making plans to force a floor vote on legislation that would invalidate Arizonas controversial immigration statute if the Supreme Court upholds the law this summer.
Sen. Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) will announce the fallback legislation at a hearing on the Arizona law Tuesday, a day before the Supreme Court hears oral arguments in a suit to determine whether Arizona had the authority to enact the 2010 state crackdown. The legislation would have little chance of passing in a stalemated Senate or being approved by a GOP-held House, but it would allow Democrats to push their electoral advantage with Latino voters just as the presidential campaign heats up in July.
The plan is to allow Democrats a route to express displeasure with the Arizona law if the court allows it to stand, and it would force Republicans to take a clear position on the law during the height of the presidential campaign. The immigration law is deeply unpopular with Latino voters, who could be key to the outcome of the presidential and Senate races in several Western states. If the court upholds the Arizona law, Congress can make it clear that what Arizona is doing goes beyond what the federal government and what Congress ever intended, Schumer said in an interview.
He called the Arizona law an assault on the domain of the federal government that Congress will need to address if the court allows it to stand.

Senate Rats may propose whatever they like.
It won’t pass the House.
Alinsky's second chapter, called Of Means and Ends, craftily poses many difficult moral dilemmas, and his 'tenth rule of the ethics of means and ends' is: 'you do what you can with what you have and clothe it with moral arguments.' He doesn't ignore traditional moral standards or dismiss them as unnecessary. He is much more devious; he teaches his followers that 'Moral rationalization is indispensable at all times of action whether to justify the selection or the use of ends or means.'...
"'The organizer's first job is to create the issues or problems,' and 'organizations must be based on many issues.' The organizer 'must first rub raw the resentments of the people of the community; fan the latent hostilities of many of the people to the point of overt expression. He must search out controversy and issues, rather than avoid them, for unless there is controversy people are not concerned enough to act. . . . An organizer must stir up dissatisfaction and discontent.'"
One step closer to civil war.
Illegal immigration is an assault on the domain of the American people but I guess Charles Shoo-muh isn’t concerned about that.
By all means, dumbles...show your contempt for the rule of law and defy the Supreme Court.
That will make you look ever so good..
Dumbles are simply azzholes.
Obergruppenfuhrer Schumer can see the handwriting on the wall. Without all those illegal alien votes, the commie ‘RATS are in deep kimchi come November. Chucky loves “minorities” but he doesn’t want to be one.
The tree of liberty needs refreshed.
The Democrats are determined to fix this election and turn the US over to Mexican authorities.
First of all the house will just let the bill languish like the senate does and will not vote on it.
Secondly, most legal latinos I have spoken with that live in the western states would love to get the border sealed. The illegal immigrants are hurting them more than anyone.
In other words -IF Supreme Court finds the AZ law Constitutional the RATS will still attempt to circumvent the Constitution.
“..and turn the US over to Mexican authorities”
You mean turn us...you and me-over to the Mexican Invasion of America...
Who do these people like Chuck the Schmuck represent??
Surely not Americans. Obama ran guns to cartels, drunken illegals are running down Americans, American labor forces are being forced out of jobs by illegals, Drugs are coming over the border, we have gangs in bigger cities.
Illegals are costing us Billions of tax dollars
Are these the people Chuckie represents??
It must be because he, and they, are certainly not representing Americans.
Americans in Arizona mean nothing.
Are there really enough actual legal Hispanics who can vote,that want illegals in this country, to elect Democrats?
Or is Chuck looking forward to the illegal votes?
It makes you wonder if any of these dumb a$$es have ever even read the Constitution.
The founders fully intended for the States to have more power than the Federal government.
(Schwuler = Fag in German)
Yep. A Vote of the people of Arizona doesn’t matter. Chuck You Schumer will tell you what you can and can’t do.
The sheer arrogancy is stupendous. Maybe even, Unprecedented!
Briar patch here we come. Schumer must be on drugs.
Dear God forgive me - I hate these people to the core of my soul!!!
