I wondered why so many were celebrating when it was clear the law is still in effect as well as "paving the way" for others States to follow. People need to be informed before spouting off at the mouth and spreading false information.

Here again, the judge hinted that if the law were amended to clarify that the narrow interpretation was the proper one -- that local officers can detain criminal aliens convicted or wanted for deportable crimes in other states -- it would pass muster.
All the other provisions of the SB 1070, including the improved evidentiary standards for Arizona's E-Verify law, and the provision authorizing the impoundment of vehicles belonging to illegal aliens, passed muster and will be implemented.
When the order was issued, I was in a meeting with East Coast legislators from one of many states considering SB-1070 laws. They were concerned by the first news reports. But after we read the order together, their confidence was restored.

That is an opinion from a FAIR lawyer. Not really an unbiased examination.

It's got to be far more unConstitutional for Obama to follow the orders of foreign governments when deciding that individual states can make what laws. Obama even admitted that he had to listen to Mexico's government and it had authority over Arizona law. Arizona's law doesn't conflict with federal law and Obama as the Chief Executive is supposed to make sure federal laws are enforced but he won't or can't because even if it's what the American people want, the Mexican government tells him otherwise.

Obama administration sues Arizona over immigration law | Reuters

The Obama administration warned in the lawsuit that other states were considering similar immigration measures which would result in "further and significant damage" to U.S. relations with countries like Mexico, which last month joined a lawsuit seeking to derail the Arizona law.

Mexico's Foreign Ministry on Tuesday expressed "satisfaction" at the Obama administration's move to challenge the state law.

"The Mexican government will continue to follow this process closely, and stands by its firm commitment to protect the rights of Mexicans abroad," the ministry said in a statement.



Now how bad is that? Mexico which obviously doesn't do much about the rights of it's citizens in it's very violent northern states now gets to decide the laws of the USA.

I forget which show and actually who was being interviewed last night but the gist of the story went like this: "I've just spent x amount of months abroad and the contention of the rest of the world is that America is the laughing stock of the world with this administrations handling of the illegal immigration problem in this Country".

I actually blushed when I heard that. To feel ashamed for one's own Country makes a huge statement to me. The handling of mexico and it's outspoken rhetoric and disregard for our laws coupled with the WH encouraging as well as coaching them is unbelievable. Nothing short of treason and I hope charges will be filed once we get these anti-Americans out of our most cherished seats.

Of course we are. Despite record unemployment and a shrinking economy, we allow anyone with the will to enter this country unchecked for disease or criminal background and then give them a job. We even allow them to work without paying taxes so they can send a portion of their ill-gotten earnings back to their countries of origin. In addition, if they give birth on U.S. soil, we offer them the keys to the castle. . . WIC, welfare, subsidized housing, you name it. To add insult to injury, we vilify and demonize our own citizens for opposing this intrusion. Why would we not be the brunt of jokes?
