Although they delayed their decision on healthcare to the last possible minute, the Supreme Court placated the masses looking to rip them apart in the media by graciously ruling on Arizona’s immigration law, SB 1070. In typical Supreme Court fashion, they relied on the Constitution to inform their decision, reiterating that no, Arizona is not allowed to just enforce Federal law with state resources because they think the Federal law is sh*t at keeping people who want to be in Arizona out, but yes, Arizona is allowed to investigate possible apparent immigration violations if they stop someone for a legitimate crime first…at least until they actually stop someone for a legitimate crime and investigate their immigration status. At that point, all bets are off.
The left responded to this pragmatic decision by embarking on a series of well-thought-out refutations of the decision based on sound legal knowledge and the testimony of experts, then peacefully consulted with the Arizona state government on how to properly enforce immigration law within their borders.
On Monday, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency suspended the federal program known as 287(g) for Arizona, which allows local law enforcement to investigate a suspect’s immigration status after an arrest had been made for any offense. The program has been highly effective in identifying criminal aliens at the local level.
The decision came only hours after the U.S. Supreme Court announced their decision to let stand the portion of Arizona’s immigration law which requires local law enforcement during routine stops to check the immigration status of anyone they suspect is here illegally.
According to the Department of Homeland Security, 287 (g) agreements are “not useful” in states that have enacted SB1070-type laws.
So, even if local law enforcement arrests an illegal alien, their requests to ICE are likely to fall upon deaf ears and the suspect will simply be released.
Oooooohhhhhhh, ya burnt. Now, short of re-enacting the late 2010 Robert Rodriguez-directed grindhouse film Machete, illegal aliens can do pretty much whatever the f*** they want in Arizona and the ICE couldn’t give a rat’s ass. Well, at least as far as the illegal alien is concerned. DOJ, charged with enforcing the nation’s spate of laws, has, however, helpfully set up a hotline that anyone can call to report on the police abusing their power under 1070 2(b). You can also email Eric Holder in reference to the above matter at the not-so-subtle SB1070@usdoj.gov. Of course.
Obviously, this is all in preparation (or, for that matter, avoidance on the Federal part) for the impending lawsuits attendant to the actual enforcement of SB 1070 2(b). The first time anyone is investigated or questioned under the law, you can bet Eric Holder and whatever non-profit legal defense firm wins the fight-to-the-death they are undertaking to be the one to bring this to litigation, will be on that sucker faster than John Edwards on a blonde junior staffer with a self-esteem problem (he’s single again, by the way, ladies).
I was never really a fan of George W. Bush, but at least you knew where he was going with things. It was all cowboy boots and double-barreled shot guns and ranches in Texas and a Vice President who would shoot you in the face and sh*t. Open. Honest. This administration is like hanging around a bunch of thirteen year old girls who just found out you liked the most popular one’s boyfriend and have no shut you out of ground decision making and totally didn’t tell you that Friday was khaki pants day and won’t invite you to their sleepover this weekend unless they can be sure you’ll fall asleep first so they can freeze your underwear.
Dastardly little bitches.
