Judicial Activism Strikes Part Of Arizona Law

Parts of the Arizona law that only enforced federal immigration laws were struck down by an activist judge who fails to understand that state laws which are identical to or do not change federal law, are perfectly legal. U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton, obviously bowing to behind the scenes pressure from the Obama regime, ruled that police officers cannot be required to check immigration status. What she has basically said is that police officers are not allowed to do their jobs.

Suppose these police officers told the federal government that they would no longer go after bank robbers because bank robbery is a federal crime and it might impact the federal laws. Would that make sense?

What Judge Bolton said today is that the rule of law does not matter and that states do not have control over their own territory. She basically told people it is OK to break federal law and then cause havoc in states and she told the states they have no right to protect themselves against federal impotence.

Governor Brewer plans to appeal the ruling but she should just put the law into place anyway and say screw the ruling. Isn’t this what Obama did with the drilling moratorium in the Gulf? He decided that he would ignore the court. Brewer should just tell her officers that they are not REQUIRED to ask immigration status but are free to do so if they wish. Then it would be a different issue and they can press on.

Immigration groups were jumping with joy at the ruling because now illegals will not be held accountable for the lawbreaking they are doing. They have been given free reign by a judge who made a moronic decision.

At least there is a sheriff in Arizona who intends to continue arresting illegals and putting them in tents.

Judge Bolton failed to rule on the merits of the law and legislated from the bench. She did not look at the merits of the law or she would have seen that it mirrors federal law. Perhaps she is unaware that states are sovereign places and have rights.

This is what happens when people who live in gated communities apart from the real world are placed in positions that require life experiences. This is also what happens when judges are worried about being removed from the bench by the White House.

Eric Holder and the Obama regime can all take a long walk off a short pier and keep walking until their hats float. And the good people of Arizona can take matters into their own hands.

Clean up your state by getting rid of the illegal trash and tell the White House to go screw itself. You folks in Arizona should start asking for papers on your own before you do business with anyone. If they do not have them then no jobs, no apartments, no sales, no cars, no nothing. Ask for proof before issuing a driver’s license.

If anyone says you can’t do that because it is against the law just tell them laws don’t apply in this case because it deals with immigration. Bolton and the feds have shown us that they have no regard for the law and that there is no need to actually follow the law.

I guess Arizona can take solace in the fact that at least these illegals did not come from Kenya…

    This judge did indeed legislate from the bench, going so far as to show her complete and utter ignorance of the Federal Law, which states that people who are not citizens ARE REQUIRED to have their papers on them at all times- what galling stupidity on the part of someone who is supposed to know the law- Listen, I am a carpenter, but if I believe I can do her job better than she is doing her job, then she isn’t doing her job effectively.
    At least she left open the fact that police are still allowed to ask about an immigrant’s status during a legally warranted stop- they are just not REQUIRED to- and there are many police who will do so, perhaps even more than before, because no police officer likes to be told HOW to do their job, especially by an ignorant activist judge.

    You know, if we just strictly enforce the employer hiring practices, with strict fines per illegal, I will bet you that we can find Americans who will work at those jobs- after all, it was Americans who built this country, and we did ALL the jobs- yes, many were new immigrants- but most of them came legally, via Ellis Island, and the ones who didn’t (Chinese, etc.) stayed simply because those who were left were too tough to die from the labor, and too inconvenient to ship home.
    With Mexicans it is different, and the times are different- now, we have terrorists, and drug runners, and even the coyotes who bring people over have guns and shoot at Americans.
    We shouldn’t have to take in another country’s citizens just because the leaders of that country are too stupid or too corrupt to do their duty to their own citizens. The citizens should hold them accountable, but the typical Mexican has too many centuries of being in bondage- they have now a “peon attitude”- they will do as they are told, but NOTHING more.
    They have no initiative, for the most part, and that is their biggest drawback, and because of that, they will never have a country of their own, where they can succeed, and have the opportunity to do so in their own country.
    Most Mexicans I know would rather do that, then journey here- but the success or failure of their own country is, in the end, up to them, and noone else.
