    Above: Sign from the 'Stand With Arizona' rally in Tempe AZ, May 29, 2010. by John HillStand With Arizona On the eve of a showdown for S.B. 1070 in the U.S. Supreme Court next week, a new poll shows that Americans support Arizona's landmark immigration crackdown more than ever - by a margin of more than two-to-one.

Eighty-four percent of Republicans favor Arizona’s law, while 46 percent of Democrats do. A 51-percent majority of Democrats opposes the law. Perhaps most...

    A senior Mexican official spoke with reporters today, in advance of the North American Leaders summit this weekend. The official, speaking on background, explain that this summit is basically laying the ground work for future endeavors, and advised not expect to see any obvious deliverables – that developing the relationship is essentially the goal. “No two countries are more important to each other’s security, prosperity, and well being than these two countries – simply by virtue of having a 2,000 mile border,” the official said. President Obama will meet with President Filipe Calderon and Prime Minister Harper – in bi-lats...

    Along largely partisan lines, the Senate Judiciary Cmte backed SCOTUS appointee Sonia Sotomayor, Pres. Obama's first high court pick, this morning by a 13-6 vote. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) was the only Republican to support Sotomayor. The Senate cmte's Dems voted unanimously for the Bronx native. The full Senate will vote next, but with the Dems' 60-vote majority, Sotomayor's confirmation is all but a done deal. She will be the first individual of Hispanic heritage to sit on the SCOTUS.

    Asked about recent comments Republican Sens. Jim DeMint (S.C.) and James Inhofe (OK) have made, suggesting that GOP would benefit politically if President Obama’s health care agenda was stalled, Republican Whip Jon Kyl said, “I don’t agree with that kind of language.” “Because the language has a political implication,” Kyl added, “I think that’s unfortunate. Both sides talk about the politics of this. I don’t think we should be focused on that.” A week ago, Demint evoked Napoleonic metaphor, saying, “If we’re able to stop Obama on this it will be his Waterloo. It will break him.” Speaking to conservative...

    While construction on the border fence in Cameron County is at a standstill because of pending lawsuits, at least one local landowner is surprised by a California congressman’s introduction of legislation that calls for more fencing construction along the United States-Mexico border. The bill, known as the Unlawful Border Entry Prevention Act and introduced Wednesday by U.S. Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-California, gives Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano discretionary authority to build 350 miles of additional reinforced fencing where she deems is necessary. More than 650 miles of fence have already been approved along the U.S.-Mexico border. If approved...
