Will SB 1070 Survive the Supreme Court?

The future of Arizona (and immigration laws across the country) is in the hands of these costumed folks.
Senate Bill 1070 is due to be heard in the Supreme Court this week, as the oral arguments are scheduled for Wednesday.

Today's the second anniversary of the immigration bill being signed into law by Governor Jan Brewer, and since then -- or even before that -- everyone's developed an opinion on 1070.

The basic issue with the law is whether Arizona can is allowed to take federal immigration law into its own hands, which the Supremes will have to figure out.

Since lower courts have prevented certain aspects of the law from taking effect, it's still possible that 1070 as passed in 2010 becomes the law of the land, completely thrown in the garbage, or approved in pieces.

This morning's question:

What will the Supreme Court do with SB 1070?

I wonder if your opinion of the intellect of the SCOTUS will vary based on its decision to SB1070.

Personally, I will be satisfied with the decision regardless of the outcome. Will you?


I hope the outcome is C but, considering the wingnut make up of the court, I think B or even A are more likely.

Corporations are people. those with brown skin AREN'T.

In a new Reuters-Ipsos opinion poll ( not
exclusively a rightist newspaper) found about 70 percent of those surveyed
favored state laws that let police check a person's immigration status and make
it a crime for an illegal immigrant to work in the United States; about 30
Court will hear Arizona vs. United States and if its policing statutes go
against this small defenseless border state, the American voter must push,
pursue and use the severe pressure of the vote to verbally intimidate every
Republican, Democrat and Liberal to get the “THE LEGAL WORKFORCE ACT” in front
of the House, before taxpayers suffer any more at the hands of corrupt
politicians who have sold us into financial slavery.


Repeating that special visas
should be expedited for top professionals in Science, Engineering, and a whole
range of high technology, given us the brain power for a futuristic U.S, but we
must spend the money to check on females who are carrying an unborn infant,
with new detection systems at entry ports, as 400.000  arrivals are ready to conceive annually and
then apply for welfare.  Just calculate
the uncompensated cost to hospitals that have to pay for these deliveries, that
are then passed on to taxpayers? By the Congress just amending the Birthright Citizenship Act
of 2011 (H.R.140) the country could discontinue this billion dollar soaking of
individual states? Don’t know who to call in Washington, and then phone 202-224-3121
the switchboard that
will connect you with your Representative?  Every prudential contender would be
well advised to read the immigration sullen statistics advanced by “The Heritage Foundation” Can we
afford 2.5 Trillion dollars to legitimize the 20 million plus Illegal’s who
have settled here? That is what the Heritage Foundation has forecasts. Not all
Tea Partier’s have excellent grades as found on NumbersUSA site,  that
will halt the illegal alien occupation and the population growth.  


NOVEMBER! It could be
the rebirth of America, as the Tea Party, the PEOPLE’S PARTY, the
Constitutional Party gains more seats in the Senate and House. A takeover!
Hundreds of thousands of people, most probably millions, who have never shown
any political interest before, have been made aware that the leftists are going
to press non-citizens in registering to vote. Without any State Boards of
Elections regulations being reevaluated, that shows a picture ID of the person
voting, saying who they say they are, than the whole trust concept will be
compromised? Already in Florida, Georgia and Colorado large numbers of non
citizens and illegal immigrants have been revealed through television
interviews. The U.S. senate
candidate may have been decided by convicted felons who voted illegally in
Minnesota's Twin Cities. If there had been an honest election and incumbent Sen.
Norm Coleman had won, there would never had been nearly a trillion dollars stimulus package.

With so much at stake the Democrats have a demonstrated a record of
signing up canvassers, who have less than reputable reputations that includes
ACORN, justifiably being  prosecuted in
eleven states for registering non-citizens in large numbers. The left have been
crafting committees to overturn any chance of many states, insisting on the use
of showing official ID.  Attorney General
Eric Holder, ‘FAST AND FURIOUS PREDATOR’ has failed and shown great reluctance
to prosecute groups, like the re-emergence of the Black Panthers to investigate
intimidation and wrongdoing. Holder has also beneficial for the Democrats in
using a strong arm to harass Arizona and freedom loving states, to stop the
financial bleeding process of taxpayers, burdened perpetually for medical,
schooling of unfunded court mandates. He is being shielded by the Obama Czars
and even Obama himself, who are not apologetic. A TEA PARTY majority in the
Senate and House can at least prosecute Eric Holder and his followers in his
peer’s court.


 Most signatories to the European Union
including France must possess some form of official Identification to vote.
Before even Conservative President Nicolas Sarkozy could vote, he was seen in
television broadcast of handing over to election supervisors an identification
passport like document. France has had a national ID card for all citizens
since the beginning of World War II in 1940. The majority of countries included
in the European Union must carry some form of picture ID, except for the United
Kingdom that relies on a Drivers License, other than foreign nations who must
carry an ID card.


It is unlikely that
America will ever be issued a national ID card, but if it came about like in
other nations, many of the issues that cause billions of dollars in court
cases, congressional oversight and other situations governing this would be a
thing of the past. And the communist founded ACLU couldn’t torture the American
people no more, with their political correctness doctrine. Its well established
fact by now that because racial profiling has been carefully administered
successfully, that Mohamed Atta who was stopped by the police prior to 9/11
would have been held in custody. This document should be issued to every legal
population of our nation, free as in many other countries. What’s a few billion
dollars when illegal aliens are stealing states blind, with a cost of over a $
hundred billion annually?  An official
would visibly serve the citizens to this country, to prove eligibility to vote,
to drive a car, access to health care, to education and be the document for
many other uses. Instead currently there is a marked increase of illegal aliens
voting in state and local races.  The
usual group of organizations screaming voter suppression in the State of South
Carolina, as they enacted a voter ID law. So Governor Nicki Haley gave every
voter the opportunity to arrive at the polling station. Out of 50 million
people only 23 voters took the initiative, to be driven to the voting place to


Currently states with
strict voter ID laws are Georgia, Indiana, Kansas, Mississippi, Pennsylvania,
Tennessee, and Wisconsin, South Carolina and Texas. Then states with less
stringent voter ID laws are Alabama, Florida, Hawaii, Idaho, Louisiana,
Michigan and South Dakota. States with poor voter ID laws are Alaska, Arizona,
Arkansas, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Kentucky, Missouri, Montana, North
Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, Utah, Virginia, Washington. Then there 19
states with no voter Identification laws at all, that could substantially
change the direction of any election from the President, down to the elected
administrators of cities and counties, specific in close races. The Sanctuary
State of California is overwhelmed by illegal migrants and immigrants, who are
treated to all the entitlements that the poorest of Americans receive.  In a Democratic run state house, the liberals
seated there will never change the demands for a tougher set of regulations, so
illegal aliens cannot vote and the same can be said for Senator Harry Reid’s
Nevada. Blue state capitols are dead against any rules in elections, to stop
either non citizen, who lean towards the left.


Democrats have been caught with their ‘hand in the cookie jar’ so
to speak, time and time again There is a terrible sense of foreboding when
distasteful organizations as ACORN are concerned, or Democratic legislator run
states who have conveniently ignored the need for picture ID, as simple as a
states card or even a drivers license, that they are fully aware that a utility
bill, internet, phone or television bill can be easily be forged or any
document using a computer printer. External vulnerability is the absentee
ballot, where under the law, county election officials must decide whether the
signature on a request for an advance ballot matches the individual’s previous
signature that could be on a voter registration form or another type of recognition.
This is just asking for fraudulent returns regarding voting document.


As an example a voter was in Andover, Minnesota resident who voted
once in person using her own name and also completed a forged absentee ballot
in an apparent variation of her daughter’s name. The daughter was away at
college and also voted in her college precinct. Election officials detected the
apparent duplicate vote and contacted the daughter who denied voting twice.
Eventually, the mother was contacted and admitted that it was she who completed
the absentee ballot in her daughter’s name. The woman was charged with three
felonies, but was sentenced only to temporary probation and was ordered to
repay the costs of her prosecution.  THERE STEALING PEOPLE’S IDENTIFICATION TO GET


Department of Justice (DOJ) has prosecuted more non-citizen voting
cases in Florida than in any other state. 
Florida is not exclusive as thousands of non-citizens are registered to
vote in some states and tens if not hundreds of thousands in entirety may be
present on the voter rolls nationwide. These numbers are major and from local
elections which are often determined by only a handful of votes. Constant
national elections have likely been within the margin of the number of
non-citizens ille­gally registered to vote. One Naples, Florida voter admitted
she was not a U.S. Citizen, nor a legal immigrant, but election records show
she voted six times
in the past eleven years. Voter fraud has ricochet in the last decade and when
illegal aliens admit they have voted multiple times and not sitting in prison,
something is seriously wrong with our election system? 


Think about the undeniable reality that Democrats are essentially
to blame, because they will not entertain any requirement for voter ID, perceptively
full well that that non citizen voter could improve their chances of winning.
That is why the only chance of having a fair election is through voting every
potential Tea Party member candidate who will bring some resemblance of honesty
back to this great nation.


Democrats and the
surrogate Liberals know they can claim millions of extra votes from non
citizens, if they promise them welfare entitlements, food stamps, low income
housing and other benefits. They can also introduce legislation if Obama gets a
second term to shove passage of Comprehensive Immigration Reform, down taxpayer’s
throats. THE REPUBLICAN LEADERSHIP needs more members to SPONSOR “H.R. 2885, to be introduced as
Chairman Smith's 'Legal Workforce Act’ instead of blocking its passage. E-Verify has
become bipartisan as more Democrats are realizing that as federal law could
mean placement to American workers and discharging foreign nationals.  The Obama Administration has issued a
statement that it is getting E-Verify ready to introduce a big development, from
the DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY (DHS) in Preparing the 50-states for
Mandatory E-Verify Law. Republican House leaders are definitely being held
accountable, for making it law sooner.


First, I respect the function of SCOTUS even though I may not agree with the global and constitutional views of some of its Jurists.  I'm torn on the SB1070 issue though. 

On one hand, I'm not sure I agree with, or am comfortable with, the feds dictating how and when the sovereign states can protect themselves from foreign invaders.  That last term might sound melodramatic but if a person that just wants to feed their family can get across, then so can't Taliban Ahole..and just as easily?  And smuggling a lot worse than illicit drugs?  I'm for any reasonable strategy / tactic, short of violating fundamental constitutional freedoms, that prevents that from happening.  From what I've seen and listened to, most of the people that are anti-SB1070 are either pimping votes or trying to justify and rationalize amnesty and open borders under the pretense of being anti-discrimination.

On the other hand, I think the feds have a valid point when they insist we can't have every state making up its own rules...if we took that further, what if every county in every state tried to make up its own rules...."the state isn't do enough so we'll do it our own way". 

The answer of course is obvious, dispense with the vote mongering perpetual campaigning and find some common ground when it comes to protecting our borders and stopping people, as much as is possible, from coming across without legal permissions. 

What really torques my ass is that the feds were more than happy to have Arpaio's help.  They even gave him written permission complete with full Dbase access and federal badges. Then, like most Napoleon Complex, "I wish I was Wyatt Earp" assholes do, he went to far and decided to start violating peoples Constitutional rights...even of a good cop. Now AZ and the feds are basically at war....thanks Joe...you're a fucking asshole!!!  I hope the feds bury you!!
