Skip to comments.Court strikes down most of Arizona immigration law, but leaves key provision in place (1070)
Posted on 06/25/2012 7:26:29 AM PDT by pabianice
SCOTUS strikes-down 3 of 4 S1170 provisions; says immigration is under federal control. One section -- allowing police to check immigration status after legal stopes -- sent back to 9th District Court for review.
None of the remarks posted seem to understand any of this ruling and are used as an excuse to bash the Court, Bush and just sound stupid.
What sources did Jake Tapper hear it from??
The States have the right to deport illegals.
Arizona,Texas etc. should secede.
And I’ll keep asking: Who is going to deport them?
Say a 29 year old illegal college student is working part time as a mule. He gets pulled over for a broken tail light and there are 5 others in the car. His status is checked and it’s determined he is here illegally. But, since he’s under 30 he can’t be deported. The other five illegals in the car? It’s not their car so they haven’t broken the law so, therefore, their status isn’t even checked.
Nobody is reaming either Roberts or Bush for the one part that all the justices agreed to send back to the 9th Circuit.
What’s at issue is the other 3/4ths of the law, that Roberts voted with the majority on - against Scalie, Alito, and Thomas.
If the 1/4th that got sent back to the 9th Circuit was unanimous then it was going to be that decision regardless of whether the other 3/4ths were thrown out or not. So Roberts had no strategic reason to side with the liberal justices.
So why did he?
We still have Rubio
Also ignore the fact that Reagan put Kennedy on the court.
WAKE UP PEOPLE THE MAIN STREAM MEDIA TWISTS THE TRUTH.
Vote is public.
KENNEDY, J., delivered the opinion of the Court, in which ROBERTS,C. J., and GINSBURG, BREYER, and SOTOMAYOR, JJ., joined. SCALIA, J., THOMAS, J., and ALITO, J., filed opinions concurring in part and dissenting in part. KAGAN, J., took no part in the consideration or decision of the case.
5-4 wasn’t possible.
Kagan was recused.
It was 5-3
Roberts, Kennedy, Breyer, Ginsburg and Sotomayor.
Scalia, Alito and Thomas.
The most controversial portion of the bill was upheld. AZ can check immigration status at traffic stops etc.
Sue Obama and bring Obama and his executive order giving Amnesty to illegals before the Supreme Court.
Do you think corporations would stop taking taxes out of your paycheck?
In away they have been..less workers means less taxes collected.
This is one of the main reasons Socialism doesn’t work in America.
Eventually, they defund themselves.
Unfortunately they destroy, or at best make it very difficult, what was a very savable country in the process.
Otherwise,I think if things got bad enough.Once Obamacare kicks in will be the breaking point.
Few want to return to surfdom or at least they wont when they find that is where the present path leads.
LoL, indeed. And SDO. How could that be?
“Then ICE simply lets them go, “Catch and Release”. “
The political effect of this though is huge. Arizona will have a count of folks caught and released. Will have numbers and can publicize them. This stuff has been operating with the grubs under the rocks for years.
That is correct. However, the 9th Circuit is no ordinary court.
I should make clear my post is a reference, not so much this particular ruling, but mostly IF ObamaCare is passed.
He ignores Congress. And Congress does nothing. What makes anyone think that the Executive Branch will ever pay attention to what an individual sues them about, even if the suit went all the way to SCOTUS?
“Imagine if the Feds got violent against its own, otherwise law abiding, citizens.”
I’ve obviously been reading newspapers and modern history books that are very different from yours for the last few decades.
The Fed has been making war on its own citizens from the time they locked the first person up over a blatantly unconstitutional firearms law at the very least.
If you’re going to argue that “otherwise law abiding” means knuckling under every time the government arrests someone using laws they were never intended to have the authority to make or sets people up using false accusations and entrapment etc (Waco and Ruby Ridge, for starters) you’re living in a police state already.
The guys who have snapped at the outrage of it all and fought back even in small ways have been publicly condemned and disavowed by the vast majority conservatives.
