The Radicalism of the Anti-Arizona SuitRTWT!!
As everyone knows, Arizona passed a law that says, among other things, state law enforcement will inquire with the feds about the status of suspected illegal aliens.
The Obama administration says that this law upsets the entire federal immigration scheme and is unconstitutional.
I'd be curious to know how, then, the Obama administration explains this passage in the U.S. code, which obviously contemplates state and local governments finding out about illegals and making inquires about them with the feds—indeed, forbids anyone from preventing this exchange of information from taking place:Sec. 1373. Communication between government agencies and the Immigration and Naturalization Service (a) In general
Notwithstanding any other provision of Federal, State, or local law, a Federal, State, or local government entity or official may not prohibit, or in any way restrict, any government entity or official from sending to, or receiving from, the Immigration and Naturalization Service information regarding the citizenship or immigration status, lawful or unlawful, of any individual.
(b) Additional authority of government entities
Notwithstanding any other provision of Federal, State, or local law, no person or agency may prohibit, or in any way restrict, a Federal, State, or local government entity from doing any of the following with respect to information regarding the immigration status, lawful or unlawful, of any individual:
(1) Sending such information to, or requesting or receiving such
information from, the Immigration and Naturalization Service.
(2) Maintaining such information.
(3) Exchanging such information with any other Federal, State,
or local government entity.
(c) Obligation to respond to inquiries
The Immigration and Naturalization Service shall respond to an
inquiry by a Federal, State, or local government agency, seeking to verify or ascertain the citizenship or immigration status of any individual within the jurisdiction of the agency for any purpose authorized by law, by providing the requested verification or status information.
The brief in support of Arizona by state attorneys general is particularly good on this point.
BY SUING ARIZONA, OBAMA AND HOLDER HAVE ONCE AGAIN EXPOSED THEMSELVES AS ANTI-AMERICAN LEFT-WING DIRT-BAGS.
THEY LOOK THE OTHER WAY AS AFR AS "SANCTUARY CITIES" GO - CITIES THAT REFUSE TO ENFORCE IMMIGRATION LAW, BUT SEEK TO PUNISH A STATE THAT IS TRYING TO ENFORCE THE LAW.
OBAMA AND HOLDER ARE DOWNRIGHT EVIL.
THEY MUST BOTH BE IMPEACHED.
WE CAN TAKE A STEP IN THAT DIRECTION THIS NOVEMBER: VOTE GOP.
