More reliable and level headed sources say the Court struck down most of the Arizona law, but declined from doing so for the infamous 'papers please' part of it. It didn't uphold that part though, just said it was going to wait and see how the law was imlemented
The ever hyperbolic media seems to be reporting this as either a massive win for Obama or a massive loss. I would expect Freepers to wallow in their victimization, but instead they are more split. I guess some of them really need a win right now:
the victims started out on the ascendance:
Know how I know The Sons of Liberty is a lunatic?
Roberts is political - if he wasn't, he'd have upheld The Constitution and never sworn in the usurper (the second time using a koran!)! Don't count on him to sink 0bamascare!Terry Mross knows all the Justices have been compromised:
Judge Napolitano says the law was basically struck down. This tells me the so called conservatives on the SC have been intimidated or bought.people don't agree with Freepers? It's because they've been threatened into it.
This also tells me obamacare will probably stand.
After all, they all allowed a Kenyan to inhabit the white house.
dalebert makes up for being better informed by jumping to conclusions:
SENT BACK TO LOWER COURT TO FIND A BETTER WAY TO DESTROY IT.Then a new narrative emerges:
txrangerette is with Beck on this one, you can tell by the caps:
Jay Sekulow on Beck disagrees with your quick assessment, completely.Sacajaweau also thinks this is bad news for Obama:
He said the guts of the AZ law was the provision that was upheld, that AZ police can ask immigration status and detain for ICE when carrying out other law enforcement duties.
He said it is HUGE.
He said the three provisions struck down were said to be pre-empted by federal law. In other words AZ can’t make it a state crime to illegally immigrate or be employed in the state because federal law already legislates in this area and trumps it.
THE RULING WAS UNANIMOUS.
LET ME REPEAT.
Why are people here attacking a couple of justices and attacking Bush over this?
HUGE loss for Obama.ziravan turns his thoughts to a plan for what to do now:
The States need to attack illegal immigration in areas where they have primacy. If, for example, a State refused to issue birth certs for children born to illegals, that is solely within its purview. If the feds disagree, they can issue their own certs.Tanniker Smith wants nullification:
Next, Arizona should either sue the federal govt for failing to do their jobs, orChildOfThe60s yearns for the 1860s.
Continue business as usual, until the feds step in and start doing their jobs.
The 10th amendment will continued to be shredded by the Feds and SCOTUS until states get the will to simply defy the FEDs and do it.
Short of sending in troops, the Feds can’t do a heck of lot. It is way past time for the Imperial Federal Government to be seriously challenged. And not in court, but on the playing field.
We (the states) will *never* win back our rights via the Federal courts. They must be seized by willful action. Do it and defy DC to stop them.
Where are the dynamic men of our history, willing to act on principle? The states protest, go to court, get rebuffed and then crawl back with tail between legs. Pathetic.
