Thanks to the Supreme Court’s dismal misapplication of the law and reckless disregard for the Constitution, the Obama regime now has free reign to do the same. Refusal to enforce the law and then breaking the very laws that have they have sworn to uphold, you would think that the regime has had their day with Arizona. Not quite. They’re going to make an example of Arizona and the other 49 states better take note.
Remember some weeks ago when an EPA thug was talking about how to get oil companies in line? He used the analogy of what the Romans used to do when taking over a town. They would hang the first five guys they saw and the rest of the town would give them no trouble at all. Keep that in mind. Certainly Arizona will.
Just hours after the Supreme Court ruled that not only was most of SB 1070 unconstitutional, but that the Obama regime’s unilateral illegal policy was the law of the land, the Department of Homeland Security issued an edict that will obliterate what tattered shred was left of the law. Striking down just about everything except the provision that law enforcement could inquire as to immigration status, DHS has made clear that they will not only refuse to uphold that aspect of the law, but will make a special effort to punish Arizona on the issue of illegal alien incarceration.
The Obama administration said Monday it is suspending existing agreements with Arizona police over enforcement of federal immigration laws, and said it has issued a directive telling federal authorities to decline many of the calls reporting illegal immigrants that the Homeland Security Department may get from Arizona police.
You saw that right. Don’t even answer the phone if it happens to be a call from Arizona. They are also ending the highly successful 287g program ostensibly because is was so successful. Now, Arizona law enforcement will need permission from the feds to arrest illegal aliens for immigration crimes, and DHS have indicated that they will not respond. That means Arizona-and every other state for that matter, will have to turn these people loose or face constitutional and civil rights questions. More on that later. Correct, Obama is implementing amnesty, and Arizona is going to help implement it. But it gets even worse.
Several open borders groups, including the ACLU are standing by to flood the courts with lawsuits challenging what’s left of SB 1070. The Supreme Court ruled most of it unconstitutional, but kicked what was left back down to the lower courts. The law could end up back in the courtroom of Susan Bolton, the original judge that blocked implementation of the law. If the 9th Circuit punts, it could end up back with Bolton, and she could choose to issue yet another injunction blocking the law while parties argue the merits. In this case, the merits include racial profiling and a violation of civil rights. It could be months-or even years before this law sees the light of day, and even if it does, the Obama regime has already indicated they will ignore the law. And November gets a little more important.
Obama isn’t setting immigration policy, he’s breaking the law. That is what the Supreme Court either did not understand or did not care to address. Well, Scalia addressed it. What they have done is allow obama to continue to break the law and force the rest of the country to accept his law breaking as part of the federal government’s supremacy to dictate immigration policy. However, nowhere in the Constitution does it say states have no right to defend themselves, even againsts attacks from those same feds. The SCOTUS erroneously ruled differently.
Now the contrived demographic shift will continue and the United States will continue to be merged with Mexico, only now at hyper speed. This ruling probably hands Obama both Arizona and Florida, since illegals have immunity and can now vote with confidence. The Justice Department has made sure that voter ID laws will not be enforced and states will not be able to purge their voter rolls of bogus vote casters. I know there are those that feel, however distasteful, that the SCOTUS got it right within the confines of constitutional law. I’ve made my case. I think they got it wrong. Had Obama actually been enforcing existing law, maybe you could make that case. He is not. He has made his own laws and the SCOTUS has validated them.
The same Supreme Court is expected to issue a ruling on Obamacare on Thursday. Can’t wait…
