Governor Brewer should not rejoice at the Supreme Court’s decision in Arizona v. US. Calling this a victory for all Americans is a misnomer. In fact the decision violated established US immigration law.
As usual, these luminaries in black robes played two ends from the middle. On the one hand they say a police officer may check an individual’s immigration status after stopping him for a traffic violation. But then these self-serving buffoons say Arizona went too far, by making it a crime for illegal immigrants to work and having them carry documents.
Federal law is unambiguous. Those who are not United States citizens must carry papers showing their legal status. Neither the Supreme Court nor the corrupt Obama Administration can change that. They are not only arrogant but said openly in so many words that they will aid and abet illegal immigration.
Obama’s kitchen maid, SecHomeSec Janet Napolitano, said ICE will not co-operate with Arizona’s officials. (They won’t even take their phone calls!)
What am I missing? You can ask about a person’s legal status at a police stop, but if an illegal is working or you ask for documentation you’re going too far and intruding on federal law. Hey, Mr. Justice Kennedy, you can’t have both ways. The law clearly forces foreigners to carry documents on their status. If you can overlook that, I guess it’s OK to legislate from the bench and disregard existing law.
Sorry, Governor Brewer; your excitement is misplaced.
Governor Brewer says:
Today’s decision by the US Supreme Court is a victory for rule of law. It is also a victory for the 10th Amendment and all Americans who believe in the inherent right and responsibility of states to defend their citizens.
Excuse me if I don’t express any jubilation. But allowing illegals (what part of illegal don’t you and the Supreme Court understand?) to walk about without documents is the same as not enforcing the law. Those documents exist to protect the legal citizens of this United States. Secondly, what do you mean by saying that it’s not a crime to work in the United States without legal documents? If you haven’t heard, our country is bordering on a depression. Only by deporting all illegal aliens can we ease the pain. The United States cannot afford to adhere to the destructive policies of the hypercritical limousine liberals. Nor can it afford judicial activism like this decision if we are to survive as a nation.
Just to remind you: in 1986 our beloved truthful Congress pledged to pass laws to sanction any employer who employed illegal aliens. Did it happen? No! Sound familiar? This same lie spews out the months of the liars in Congress today. That’s another reason to put every one of them on the unemployment line.

Most disturbingly of all, Chief Justice John Roberts showed his true colors. He sided with the left wing of the Court. Each of them is a judicial activist having little or no regard for the Constitution or the rule of law. I’m sure Obama and the progressive/Marxists welcomed him on the ship of fools. Shame on you. For every illegal that takes a job, an American citizen goes without. What is it with you? Are you looking for press like Justice Kennedy? I’m sure you’ll be in the news after this blunder. In fact the three wicked witches of the East Coast will love to have you over for tea. (Not to be confused with the Tea Party.)
The Only Solution: Deport Them
There’s only one acceptable way to solve the problem: deport all illegal aliens. We’ve done it before, and we should do it again! To any bleeding heart liberal out there, in the legislature or in any so-called advocacy groups: please wipe away your crocodile tears. Don’t tell me that deportation is “cruel and unusual punishment” or that it separates families. I personally don’t give a rat’s tail. Neither do a majority of the American people. That includes a majority of Hispanics who came here legally, and worked hard, only to watch their tax dollars going to subsidize criminals. Not to mention socialist/Marxist entitlement programs that the progressive miscreants in the legislature created against the wishes of the American people to garner votes in each election.
I digress. President Herbert Hoover started the sensible solution that helped save this nation during the great depression. By his order, the government deported all illegal aliens to make jobs available to unemployed American citizens. After World War II, President Harry Truman deported millions of illegals to create jobs for those that saved the civilized world from the Axis of Evil (Germany, Japan, and Italy). President Dwight Eisenhower, over two years, deported 13-million Mexican nationals so that home-coming Korean Conflict veterans would have better job opportunities. People called that policy “Operation Wetback.” It may have been a politically incorrect term. Nevertheless they got the job done. Wow! Can you imagine if they used that term today!
Founding Father Alexander Hamilton warned:
To admit foreigners indiscriminately to the rights of citizens the moment they put foot in our country, would be nothing less than to admit the Grecian horse into the citadel of our liberty and sovereignty.
Which is to say, of course, Trojan Horse.
Should I tell you how I really feel?
Therefore I say without trepidation: the word amnesty itself is revolting and unthinkable. It’s the duty of government to admit only those who qualified by legal application.
Arizona case: sovereignty dead?
