"Let the people think they govern, and they will be governed... " William Penn
"The Supreme Court unanimously - yes, UNANIMOUSLY - upheld the portion of Arizona's Immigration Law that directs law enforcement officers to check the immigration status of every one who is arrested for a crime. Not "ALLOWS" them to check, but "DIRECTS" them to check. That means it's mandatory.
Less than three hours later, the President of the United States issued an executive order blocking access by the state of Arizona to the the Federal Database that would allow such checks. The only State or Local entity EVER to be blocked.
One hour after that (which means they had it all ready in advance), the Department of Justice went live with a toll-free number, a web site, and ads, asking people to report being "racially profiled" because of this ruling, so they, the Department of Justice, can file "Civil Rights" lawsuits against the Police Departments, Sheriffs, Cities, Counties and State of Arizona.
In other words, the American Citizens of the State of Arizona are going to be sued for vast sums of money, BY THEIR OWN FEDERAL GOVERNMENT, for enforcing a law that The Supreme Court UNANIMOUSLY upheld as constitutional..." -- PIG
