Obama's old nemesis Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer tonight signed an executive order directing state agencies to deny driver's licenses and other public benefits to young illegal immigrants who obtain work authorizations under a new Obama administration program.Brewer's order issued Wednesday says she's reaffirming the intent of current Arizona law...

    By John HillStand With Arizona Obama's lawless bypass of Congress in granting blanket amnesty to millions of illegal aliens began this morning across America. Tens of thousands of illegals lined up early, and flooded into DHS centers to apply for nearly automatic 2-year stays from deportation and work permits, with far looser provisions and requirements than were ever imagined in any version of the 3-times defeated 'Dream Act' in Congress. Thanks to Obama's decree on June 15th, blanket amnesty for illegal aliens under 30 begins today as the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) begins accepting applications for “deferred action” and...

And with the Wildcats taking the field on Sept. 1, the dozen or so soldiers tasked with training the young athletes pulled no punches, opting instead to call on one of the Army’s greatest team-building weapons; the Fort Huachuca Leadership Reaction Course. “It’s a lot of fun getting work done, getting better, and becoming a family,” said inside linebacker Cody Ippolito. “All these...

    by John HillStand With ArizonaHe's known as "America's Toughest Sheriff". But Joe Arpaio continues to show he deserves the moniker of "America's JOBS Sheriff". Because every time Sheriff Joe conducts a raid, he frees up jobs for legal American workers. Yesterday was no exception, as Maricopa County Sheriff's deputies raided the large General Nutrition Corporation (GNC) distribution warehouse in Phoenix. GNC is the dominant retailer of nutritional supplements in the U.S., with stores across the country. MCSO's Jeff Sprong says the vitamin distribution business employed as many as 21 suspects using false identifications to secure employment.

    PHOENIX -- Maricopa County sheriff's detectives have submitted charges against a former inmate for false reporting to law enforcement officers. The charges stem from reports that Kolton Clark, 18, had been assaulted by detention officers while incarcerated in the Fourth Avenue Jail in downtown Phoenix. Clark was taken into custody in July on two counts of misdemeanor assault then released on a $200 bond shortly after being questioned. Detectives began an investigation after receiving information that Clark's family was concerned that he had been beaten, tased and Maced by detention officers while inside an isolation safe cell at the jail....

The second one, related to the first, has President Obama and his administration using their powers to intimidate and bully the state. Under this administration, the federal government has not stepped up to the plate to help enforce the Supreme Court decision upholding the heart of S.B. 1070 and allowing law enforcement to ask for ID to determine who is and is not legally here after stopping someone for a violation. Instead, the president is using his powers...

The second is whether the states can enforce federal law in a manner different from that of the feds. Regrettably, in addressing all of this earlier in the week, the Supreme Court overlooked the natural and fundamental freedom to associate.

    The Supreme Court has a tendency to get in its own way. Brilliant minds sometimes miss the simplest of issues -- try having a five-minute conversation with Thomas Edison -- and sometimes, when the facts of a case are reduced to their simplest terms, the obvious answer presents itself. Unfortunately arguments before the Supreme Court often focus on the opposite: complex, even strained interpretations of constitutional and case law, without regard to practical application or, dare I say, common sense. Those arguments regarding the Arizona immigration law illustrate the case perfectly. Read more.

    RUSH: Ladies and gentlemen, yesterday Mitt Romney blew it with the response to all the immigration rulings at the Supreme Court. And the Obama administration reaction to it. And the regime basically telling Arizona, "We don't care. We're gonna have spies tattling on you if you start stopping people," and so forth. Yesterday was a warning, I think. Yesterday was a red flag for the Romney team. Yesterday... And it's the first time in a long time. It's the first time I have thought this in a long time. The Romney team was not ready for primetime on this illegal...

    The Department of Homeland Security has announced changes to its relationship with Arizona’s local law enforcement following Monday's Supreme Court ruling. Just hours after the Supreme Court released its decision on SB1070, the Obama Administration made a big move by ending existing agreements with Arizona police agencies. DHS officials will no longer respond to the scene of a state or local traffic stop when those agencies request help enforcing immigration law. They will respond over the phone to help verify someone's immigration status, but they will not go to the scene unless the person is a convicted criminal, has previously...

    The Law: If there's any doubt the Supreme Court upheld the most substantial elements of Arizona's law to enforce U.S. immigration law, take a look at the scorched-earth response from the Obama administration to punish the state. The Supreme Court voted 8-0 Monday to uphold a key provision of Arizona's S.B. 1070 that requires state troopers to check the immigration status of people suspected of being in the U.S. illegally after they've been caught committing other crimes. That acknowledges the reality that the unlicensed man barreling down a desert highway with 40 people sweltering in his van might just be...

    With all the CHANGE that’s occurred since Big Guy was first immaculated, I think it’s about time for a new, post-modern Civics test: 1. Q. If a leader tells you “If you like your health care, you can keep your health care,” can you? A. No 2. Q. If a leader doesn’t like the laws passed by the constitutionally empowered and democratically elected legislature, can he unilaterally decide to change them? A. Apparently 3. Q If a leader doesn’t agree with the ruling of the Supreme Court of the land, can he unilaterally choose not to enforce that decision? A....

    National Review ^ | 06/26/2012 | Heather MacDonald
    The Supreme Court has upheld the provision of Arizona’s S.B. 1070 that the Obama administration and the illegal-alien lobby most feared: Section 2, which reaffirmed the existing power of Arizona’s local police to inquire into someone’s immigration status if the officer has reason to believe that the person is in the country illegally. In upholding Section 2, the Court has vindicated the power of judicial review and of reason itself. The lower courts’ efforts to invalidate the patently constitutional provision became progressively more laughable as the case rode up the appeal circuit, culminating in the administration’s own tortured verbiage before...
