It’s back: Court to hear arguments over Ariz. immigration law

When the Federale’s refuse to enforce their own laws a state needs to do what it has to in order to protect itself, and it’s lawful citizen’s.

PHOENIX – The impassioned debate over the nation’s immigration policy takes center stage at the Supreme Court Wednesday in a dispute over an Arizona law that punishes employers who knowingly hire workers illegally in the U.S.

    It’s clear from the Constitution that of course we have a federal system of government, where states have their own rights and are not subjugated in every way to the national government. But as has been mentioned by more than just a few, currently there still are numbers of people who would like to make “D.C.” superior in every way… The message from the past November election apparently has not yet been received.

    So very true PanAm.
