Arizona Goes to Court Today

Today Obama's Justice Department will be telling U.S. District Court Judge Susan Bolton why this administration thinks that Arizona's newly passed immigration law--the one that mirrors long-existing federal law--should not be enforced. One reason that this administration thinks is important (get out your violins): enforcing American law will disrupt U.S. relations with Mexico and other countries anxious to put their citizens on the U.S. taxpayer's payroll.

Crank up that violin music a bit more: A social service organization, one of other "civil rights" organizations suing Arizona for initiating the state's new law, will be asking Judge Bolton to throw out the law so that social service funding doesn't have to be diverted from current clients to those affected by enforcement of Arizona's new law, thus causing the current clients "imminent harm."

That's interesting. Doesn't that social service organization think that Arizonans suffer harm when the schools, prisons, and hospitals they pay for provide services to illegals instead of Arizonans?

Arizona will be telling Judge Bolton, a Clinton appointee, that the Justice Department is misreading the Arizona Law and that Arizona can't afford to foot the bill for educating, incarcerating, and providing health care to the illegal immigrants that the feds should not have allowed into the country in the first place.

On the U.S. scale of justice, whose laws weigh more? The laws of the federal government and individual states, as passed by legally elected representatives of American voters, or the imaginary laws touted by vocal illegals and their advocates and native countries?

We'll soon find out.

  1. If this were any other administration, this move would be unthinkable and would never have been allowed in court. But with the power this administration seeks, it will be miraculous if Arizona prevails.
