Supreme Court Rules Against Arizona Immigration Law

The United States Supreme Court struck-down key provisions of Arizona’s controversial immigration law, siding with the Federal government in its contention that it has jurisdiction on immigration issues. Some parts of the law the Court invalidated include:

  • Authorizing police to arrest immigrants without warrant where “probable cause” exists that they committed any public offense making them removable from the country.
  • Making it a state crime for “unauthorized immigrants” to fail to carry registration papers and other government identification.
  • Forbidding those not authorized for employment in the United States to apply, solicit or perform work. That would include immigrants standing in a parking lot who “gesture or nod” their willingness to be employed.

However, the Court let stand the most controversial part of the law, allowing police to check a person’s immigration status when enforcing other laws. Though the Court did leave open the possibility this provision can be re-visited in the future on different grounds.

Arizona Governor Jan Brewer, who championed the draconian law, claimed the Court decision was a “victory” because apparenly in Arizona having your ass handed to you by the highest court in the land is somehow “winning”.

The tussle between the U.S. Forest Service and the city of Tombstone, AZ, over the city’s right to maintain their water pipeline through public lands has now been complicated by the appearance of Mexican Spotted Owls in the vicinity of the pipeline. The owls are a threatened species, although some conspiracy theorists think the U.S. government may have encouraged the owls to illegally cross the border.

Kelly Says Health Care Is A Privilege Not A Right

Jesse Kelly, the Republican nominee running for shooting victim Gabrielle Giffords' vacated seat in Arizona’s 8th congressional district, says health care is an earned privilege. When Kelly ran against Giffords in 2010 he famously hosted an M-16 automatic rifle shooting meet to raise campaign funds.

Gingrich Loses Spectacularly In Arizona

Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum once again split the lead in the Arizona primary, but this time Romney had a much stronger finish. Newt Gingrich was a sad and pathetically distant third, and Ron Paul slipped back into the sub-ten percent range.
