Nine States Backing AZ In Immigration Suit

By Wyatt Earp | July 15, 2010

Thankfully, my state (Pennsylvania) is one of the nine.

It’s good to see some states stepping up to the plate and supporting Arizona against President Obama’s frivolous lawsuit. Imagine, suing a state for enforcing federal law! Then again, since the Obama administration has little concern with prosecuting crimes anymore – see also, the New Black Panther Party – I guess this is to be expected.

States have the authority to enforce immigration laws and protect their borders, Michigan Attorney General Mike Cox said Wednesday in a legal brief on behalf of nine states supporting Arizona’s immigration law. Cox said Michigan is the lead state backing Arizona in federal court and is joined by Alabama, Florida, Nebraska, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas and Virginia.

The Arizona law, set to take effect July 29, directs officers to question people about their immigration status during the enforcement of other laws such as traffic stops and if there’s a reasonable suspicion they’re in the U.S. illegally. President Barack Obama’s administration recently filed suit in federal court to block it, arguing immigration is a federal issue.

“Arizona, Michigan and every other state have the authority to enforce immigration laws, and it is appalling to see President Obama use taxpayer dollars to stop a state’s efforts to protect its own borders,” Cox said in a statement.

It’s not really appalling when you realize who is currently residing in the White House. A recent CBS poll found that 57% of Americans support Arizona’s law, and 17% think it doesn’t go far enough. Three-quarters of the country are on board, and the president couldn’t care less. Hope. Change. Liberal Agenda!

    Meanwhile, the “chosen one” ignores the “sanctuary” cities that thumb their nose at federal law.

    So, let’s see, if you enforce the law you are sued, if you disobey the law you are ignored. Naturally, it depends on which law is to be enforced.

    The democratic party as a whole is very selective about which laws they choose to enforce. Maybe that is why they like to pass a whole bunch of them which gives them more options.

    Rhode Island State Police: Doing the Job That 0bama and Holder Want to Prevent Arizona From Doing.

    Of course, Rhode Islands been doing this for a few years now without hardly a peep from anybody on the national level. So where are the calls to boycott Quohaog clams from La Raza, the SEIU and mediocre musicians?

    In PA, Tom Corbett, our Attorney General is indeed fighting the feds to back Arizona. Of course he has been called a racist by the demokratz and Fat Rendell is fighting him every step of the way, but Corbett told Rendell to pound sand up his fat ass.

    God Bless Pennsylvania, Arizona and America.

    Jon – No matter what the party, either. Bush was almost as bad when it came to illegal immigration.

    Ralph – Ace O’ Spades had something on the sanctuary cities. Holder’s mouthpiece said that it’s a different situation because sanctuary cities just don’t enforce the law.

    Think about that for a second. Does that mean if I just ignore paying my taxes the government won’t come for me?

    911 – Count me in!

    Fenway – Blue state versus red state. Any questions?

    Watuschskie – I like Corbett. He’s a man in the Chris Christie mold, and he is exactly what this state needs now.

    Virginia is on board. Yay!

    I live in Northern VA (Jim Moran’s my congresstool) and always forget that the rest of the state, except for Richmond, isn’t insane.

    They’re on the right side of a bunch of lawsuits, including against the EPA and this one, and the gun laws here are generally less restrictive than anywhere else. Even Texas.
    Except for the “one handgun a month if you don’t have a carry permit” law, they’re the best laws in the country.

    Veeshir – We used to go camping at Chincoteague. Virginia is a great state, no doubt about it.

    Three cheers for Corbett and Bob McDonald in Virginia. Looks like I’ll add Va. to vacation zones for the future.
    We did Chincoteague once when the kids were little. I would still love to go to the pony penning once before I shuffle off this mortal coil.

    ajdshootist – He’d be illegal in my house. Don’t want him anywhere near me.

    Bob – Campsites down there were awesome. I miss those days.

    This whole situation seems to be a perfect example of anarcho-tyranny. Instead of enforcing the law, the federal government is going after the law-abiding citizens trying to protect themselves from criminals.

    Hell, I don’t like the precedents this law will set and I think this is a stupid move on the feds’ part.
