    Judge sharply questions federal argument against Arizona law

    A federal judge sharply questioned the Justice Department's key argument that Arizona's immigration law interferes with federal enforcement of immigration law.
    "Why can't Arizona be as inhospitable as they wish to people who have entered or remained in the United States?" U.S. Judge Susan Bolton asked in Thursday's hearing, according to the Washington Post.
    She also questioned the argument that federal law "pre-empts" (i.e. trumps) the Arizona statute.

    "Where is the pre-emption if everybody who is arrested for some crime has their immigration status checked?"
    But Bolton also suggested that making it a state crime to lack immigration documents could violate a Supreme Court ruling prohibiting states from creating their own "immigration registration systems," the Los Angeles Times reports.
    The Justice Department is asking Bolton to bar the law from going into effect next week.

    Federal Judge Blocks Part of Arizona Immigration Law

    Published July 28, 2010

    Developing ...

    A federal judge on Wednesday granted a partial injunction requested by the federal government on the controversial Arizona immigration law, SB 1070.
    U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton has blocked the portion of the law that requires police officers to determine the immigration status of a person detained or arrested.
    She also struck down the section of law that makes it a crime if someone fails to carry immigration registration papers and the provision that makes it a crime for an illegal immigrant to seek or perform work.
    In all, Bolton struck down four sections of the law, the ones that opponents called the most controversial parts. Bolton said she was putting those sections on hold until the courts resolve the issues.
    Opponents say the law will lead to racial profiling and is trumped by federal immigration law. - Federal Judge Blocks Part of Arizona Immigration Law

    Law Takes Effect, Ariz. Heads Back to Court

    Arizona's controversial court-altered immigration law took effect at midnight as the state preps new court battle to appeal decision to block certain provisions

    Arizona's court-altered illegal immigration law went into effect just after midnight Wednesday, hours after a federal judge blocked its most controversial provisions -- including on-the-spot police checks of suspected illegal immigrants.
    Soon after Judge Susan Bolton's decision was announced, a spokesman for Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer said the state will appeal the ruling to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco on Thursday, asking the appellate court for a swift decision to lift the injunction and allow the blocked provisions to take effect.
    Brewer vowed to take the case "all the way to the Supreme Court if necessary," in a legal process that could take years to unravel, leaving other states considering similar laws in a legislative limbo.
    While opponents of Arizona's strict immigration law are claiming victory after Wednesday's ruling, there's still plenty left in the state legislation that supporters are cheering.
    As the case is litigated, Arizona will be able to block state officials from so-called "sanctuary city" policies limiting enforcement of federal law; require that state officials work with federal officials on illegal immigration; allow civil suits over sanctuary cities; and to make it a crime to pick up day laborers.

    More Info:

    JUDGE: Police can't determine immigration status...
    DoJ: It's correct...
    Clinton appointee made ruling...

    Will you look at this POS having the balls to put a GD Swastika on an American flag. The BALLS on these fucking people. Maybe this asshole should go visit the back of an oven at Auschwitz to understand what a Swastika really is. Then maybe he will think twice next time before putting one on an American flag. Apparently ENFORCING A FEDERAL LAW at the state level somehow relates to the Nazi filth that executed 11 million people. Somehow those two things are related. People like this need to be educated with a 2x4, nothing less.

    Arizona sheriff not relenting after court ruling


    AFP – Angry protesters shout at sheriff's deputies outside the offices of controversial Maricopa county …

    Go get them Joe !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    By JACQUES BILLEAUD and AMANDA LEE MYERS, Associated Press Writer Jacques Billeaud And Amanda Lee Myers, Associated Press Writer – 1 hr 23 mins ago

    PHOENIX – Lost in the hoopla over Arizona's immigration law is the fact that state and local authorities for years have been doing their own aggressive crackdowns in the busiest illegal gateway into the country.
    Nowhere in the U.S. is local enforcement more present than in metropolitan Phoenix, where Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio routinely carries out sweeps, some in Hispanic neighborhoods, to arrest illegal immigrants. The tactics have made him the undisputed poster boy for local immigration enforcement and the anger that so many authorities feel about the issue.
    "It's my job," said Arpaio, standing beside a sheriff's truck that has a number for an immigration hot line written on its side. "I have two state (immigration) laws that I am enforcing. It's not federal, it's state."

    GOP Lawmakers Want Explanation of Draft Memo on Amnesty for Thousands

    A group of Republican senators has written to top immigration officials in the Obama administration asking them to reveal whether large-scale plans are under way to provide a so-called non-legislative version of amnesty.
    The lawmakers cite an 11-page draft document written by staff to the director of the Citizenship and Immigration Service that says they are reviewing several executive orders and other mechanisms that effectively would serve as a substitute for comprehensive immigration reforms.
    The objective would be to promote “family unity, foster economic growth … and reduce the threat of removal for certain individuals present in the United States without authorization."
    Among the suggestions, the document offers proposals for rewriting legal opinions to allow unaccompanied minors, victims of human trafficking or extreme hardship and others who've overstayed their visas to remain in the U.S.
    For instance, the four aides who wrote the document told Director Alejandro N. Mayorkas that general counsel at the CIS has reinterpreted legal opinions of the definition of "admission" for those entering under "temporary protected status" -- in the face of war or environmental disaster -- so that they can change their status to stay in the United States permanently.

    Actually its a reverse Swastika. This person is so fucking stupid he can't even insult us properly. The Swastika displayed above (while I do know his true intention, it only strengthens my opinion that these people are mildly retarded) represents universal harmony, and balance of opposites. Its commonly used by Buddhists. - Ok my history lesson is over. This person is still an asshat. :stomp:

    The scary part is that all the illegals have left arizona seeking refuge in other states such as PA. Seems like they all know what they are doing and heck if they want to be a LEGAL citizen why dont do the process like every other person did before them. Its about time people start waking up while we give all our tax money to some person who doesnt even belong here.

    Like, an ultra liberal state that gives away tanker-ship loads of money, no questions asked, to any shit head with his/her greedy little paw out? Like, a state where the can't cunt governor prohibits police from doing their jobs? Like, a truly fucked up state that has truly fucked up sanctuary cities?

    Tea Partiers Rally on Arizona Border With Mexico

    Published August 15, 2010

    Aug. 15: From left; Steven Nanatovich, Jennifer Nanatovich, 7, Alexa Nanatovich, and Russell Nanatovich look at the flags on the Arizona-Mexico border wall in Hereford, Ariz.

    HEREFORD, Arizona -- Tea party activists supporting Arizona's illegal immigration law were rallying along a remote stretch of the Arizona-Mexico border about 70 miles west of Nogales in support of the law that a judge put mostly on hold last month.

    The United Border Coalition, which is an event organized by United We Stand for Americans and the Tea Party Caucus as well as more than a dozen other groups, held the rally near a stretch of border wall made of 15-foot steel posts set closely together to prevent people from crossing the border.

    Demonstrators attached hundreds of U.S. flags with messages about curbing illegal immigration to the posts and chanted, "U-S-A," after a handful of spectators gathered on the Mexico side of the border.
    One of the messages posted on the border wall read, "Mister President ... Secure This Border For America."

    Several speaking to the crowd of more than 400 demanded Congress and President Obama devote more resources to increase border security in remote areas like the site of Sunday's demonstration south of Tucson.
    "We are going to force them to do it, because if they don't, we will not stop screaming," said former state Sen. Pam Gorman, one of 10 Republicans vying for an open congressional seat in north Phoenix. Gorman carried a handgun in a holster slung over her shoulder as she mingled with demonstrators.

    Ariz. Shelves Plan to Alter Immigration Law

    May 25: Shackled Mexican immigrants are directed by a guard to a waiting deportation by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement in Harlingen, Texas.

    PHOENIX -- Arizona legislators are setting aside Gov. Jan Brewer's suggestion that lawmakers consider changing parts of the state's controversial immigration law.
    Brewer on July 30 floated the idea of making "tweaks" to the law shortly after a federal judge blocked implementation of numerous provisions. Legislative aides said Tuesday the idea has been shelved, at least temporarily, mainly because of the state's pending appeal to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.
    "Everyone agreed ... that it would have been acting in haste to act at this point," said Victor Riches, chief of staff for the House of Representatives' Republican majority.
    There's still a possibility that lawmakers could take up the issue in the future but nothing is in the works now, Riches added.
    Brewer spokesman Paul Senseman did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

    - [​IMG] DOJ Holds Off On Suing Arizona Sheriff

    [​IMG] Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio (AP/file photo)

    The Justice Department says it won't follow through on a threat to sue controversial Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio -- at least not for another week.
    According to a Justice Department official, things are on hold pending a meeting set for next Tuesday in Washington with Justice Department officials and lawyers for Arpaio, whose office is under investigation by the Justice Department for alleged civil rights violations. Arpaio has become a controversial figure over what some say are overly aggressive tactics to fight illegal immigration in Arizona.
    In a letter dated Aug. 3, the head of the Justice Department's Civil Rights Division, Tom Perez, accused Arpaio of failing to cooperate with the department's investigation, warning that, "Absent [your office's] voluntary cooperation with this investigation within two weeks -- by August 17, 2010 -- the Department will file a Title VI civil action to compel access to the requested documents, facilities, and personnel."
    Under Title VI of the Civil Rights Act, law enforcement programs receiving federal assistance cannot discriminate on the basis of race or national origin, and those in charge of the programs promise to operate in accordance with all requirements.
    Lawyers for Arpaio recently requested a conference with Justice Department officials to discuss the matter. A conference call was set up for Aug. 17, the day of the deadline, but then both sides agreed to an in-person meeting a week later, according to the Justice Department official. On Monday, the day before the deadline, Justice Department lawyers decided to make no decisions about further action until the in-person meeting, the official said.

    States Join Legal Brief Supporting Ariz. Immigration Law as Donations Roll Into Gov. Brewer's Defense Fund

    Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer, seen in this June 29 file photo, is expected to file a brief Thursday in Arizona's appeal of a federal ruling striking down portions of the state's immigration law.

    PHOENIX -- Nearly a dozen states have filed a legal brief in support of Arizona's controversial immigration law.
    A"friend of the court" brief filed with the San Francisco-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Friday argues that a federal judge was wrong to block implementation of key provisions of the law.
    The brief submitted by Michigan Attorney General Michael Cox argues that the judge used the wrong legal standard to rule on the U.S. Justice Department's request for a preliminary injunction.
    It also says the judge erred in ruling that the law interferes with the executive branch's immigration enforcement priorities.
    Alabama, Florida, Idaho, Louisiana, Nebraska, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas and Virginia joined in the filing.
