Today (25 April, 2012), the Supreme Court heard arguments for and against the Arizona Immigration Law (S.B. 1070).
It appears as if it’s going to be another strike against the Obama administration’s stance on Arizona enforcing the immigration laws that they refuse to enforce.
At one point, Justice Sotomayor told Solicitor General Donald Verrilli “You can see it’s not selling very well,” and later she told him “I’m terribly confused by your answer.” At another point Chief Justice John Roberts said “he didn’t see a problem,”… He was referring to the portion of the Arizona bill that dealt with checking to see if someone is in the country legally or illegally.
To me, it’s absolutely crazy that a citizen can be charged if they are walking around without proper identification, while someone here illegally doesn’t have to worry about either the ID part or their immigration status!
There is a much more complete article about today’s Supreme Court arguments regarding Arizona S.B. 1070 at The Hill.com, and the parts of the bill the Obama administration says are illegal and racist. It’s funny how the racist part of it doesn’t appear to have come up in their arguments at all. Doesn’t it really irritate the bejeebers out of you when those “in charge” will repeatedly say something over and over, but not even bring up when they are called on it in Court? Makes you wonder what other words they use just to “get a charge” out of someone.
What types of policies do you want Americas Next President pursuing with regards to immigration…both legal and illegal? Are you happy the Obama administration chose to attack parts of the Arizona law? If the decision goes against the Obama administration, are you going to be alright with the time and money spent going through this exercise? Do you think Jan Brewer, as Governor of Arizona, was right to sign, then pursue the legality of this law? Let us know what YOU think by leaving a comment below.
Thanks for stopping by today and we’ll see you again real soon,
