Today, one of the most important and under reported stories will be heading towards a major showdown.
What is it and why hasn’t the media said anything?
The case is the United States vs. Arizona. This is the SB1070 case.
SB 1070 is the name of the bill in Arizona that created a very strong anti-illegal immigrant law. The usual anti-American, open borders crowd screamed and the Obama regime, ever diligent in its duty to make America safe for anyone but Americans and doing its best to destroy this nation, filed suit.
A hearing was held in front of a Federal Judge in Arizona who issued a restraining order blocking the implementation of most parts of SB 1070. The Judge who issued the injunction blocking the law was not surprisingly a Clinton appointee.
The case then went to the 9th Circuit or as is sometimes called, the 9th Circus Court of Appeals. In a 2-1 decision, the 9th Circuit upheld the decision of the Judge in Arizona. The 9th Circuit is often called the 9th Circus court because some of its rulings are very bizarre and it is the most reversed Circuit Court in the United States.
Today, Arizona will get its day in Court.
Elana Kagan, who should have recused herself in the Obamacare litigation, has recused herself in this case so there are only 8 Justices hearing the case.
The case itself is huge for several reasons, not the least of which is the 10th Amendment concerns.
Arizona has argued that it has the right to enforce certain immigration laws because the Federal Government is refusing to do so. Most real Americans believe the Federal Government should secure the border.
The ranchers in Arizona, American citizens believe that should happen. Many cannot even leave their homes, because if they leave only for a couple of days, everything they own will be pillaged. The border area is not safe as ranchers have had their property destroyed and even been murdered.
Drug cartel violence has spilled over the border with kidnappings and murders. While the victims of these crimes are usually illegals and often have ties to the drug cartels, it is only a matter of time before this spills over and real Americans start getting hurt.
If you need any proof that Obama hates America, the border issue should answer that question.
This does not even deal with the issue of amnesty, or the quantity of immigrations into this nation. This deals with a real national security issue.
Our border is so open, it defies logic to think that Islamic terror groups have not smuggled terrorists and weapons through the open border. Americans who want to visit certain national parks in Arizona now must do so with armed guards because of the drug cartels.
America basically does not control part of our territory any more. Part of America is now controlled by a hostile power.
This is what Obama wants.
The people of Arizona only want to live in safety. That will never happen as long as Obama is in the Oval Office.
From what I hear, Ok. is doing many of the same things but, not being mentioned by BO and his merry men. How selective is he being, and why???
I would guess its because Arizona ia a border state and we have passed other laws about illegal aliens trying to stop them from entering, along with finding work here illegally. They are also suing Georgia and Alabama over illegal immigration laws that are similar to Arizona's. The Obama regime is also trying to cement the Hispanic vote both here and around the country. I don't have a real answer about why they haven't gone after Oklahoma on their laws but give them time and if they win against Arizona there could be many more challenges to come.
I read yesterday that more Mexicans are leaving than are coming here this year.
Fertility remains an issue.
How do they know how many illegal aliens are in the country? How do they know how many are from Mexico? How can they tell how many are leaving?
This is BS reporting.
Right on brother!!
They Don't! Its is exactly the problem and why the laws of the land need to be enforced. It is the result of not enforcing the laws, see Article 1 section 8 US Constitution.
Nobody knows the exact count or their country of origin, and that is the problem. Are you so jaded to actually believe this is not a problem?
That's because all 'the jobs Americans won't do' are filled by Americans.
We're at war and we don't even know it!
We are at war and some of us know it. What can you do as a foot soldier for America? Plenty, don't shop, buy or bank at facilities that promote advertisement or cater to spanish speaking people. Don't rent to anyone with out proof of a green card. Don't hire anyone who doesn't have a green card or a contractor who hires people without green cards. Demand that people in this country speak English. Be rude for a change this is our fukcing country.
Jeff & Bruce,
Yes, we are at war and there is an organization that knows it. Here is a link to Numbers USA which is fighting for sane immigration laws and needs all the help it can get.
Numbers USA is fighting for a Federal E-Verify law, too.
While at their site, be sure to watch the "gumball video". It is 6 mins. long and not only entertaining, but shocking!
There is nothing wrong with others wanting to come to live in the g-r-e-a-t-e-s-t nation in the world BUT their is one word that they must understand and that is illegally
