Many will see Judge Susan Bolton's decision to block parts of Arizona's new immigration law solely as an affirmation of the federal government's primacy over the states. But a close look at her ruling reveals that she's handed Arizona a significant victory against renegade localities seeking to undercut our nation's immigration laws.
For example, Judge Bolton let stand A.R.S. § 11-1051(A), which prohibits Arizona officials, agencies and political subdivisions from limiting enforcement of federal immigration laws. A.R.S. § 11-1051(C)-(F), which requires that state officials work with federal officials with regard to aliens unlawfully in the state, will also remain in force.
Her ruling—provided it is adopted by other courts across the country—will drive a stake into the heart of the "sanctuary" movement among cities and towns that feel they have the authority to disregard federal law. Right now, they permit illegal aliens to freely reside within their borders and have access to various benefits that should only be reserved for those here lawfully.
And...

Quote:
The court also left unchanged the provision that permits legal residents of Arizona to sue any state official, agency or political subdivision for not enforcing federal immigration laws to the full extent permitted. Such private rights of action in the context of policy issues are unheard of nationally, and may well be the most important component of Arizona's new law. How these suits are implemented, and the impact they'll have on cities and towns that until now have felt free to pursue whatever course they chose without sanction, will be quite interesting to watch.

You start it, I'll help. Right now I'm in Houston where a similar suit needs to be filed. It's so out of control here, AZ pales in comparison.

THANK YOU for this "unauthorized list". I had the top 5 but this rocks, illegals will flock there, people will continue to be outraged and we will continue to stop them from sucking us dry. THANK YOU.
