Anyway, enough attempts at derailment. I'm interested to see how this rules.
Even if California is found to be in violation of federal law by a lower court, why would the Supreme Court need to rule? If California is not found to be in violation of federal law, who is going to argue a case before the Court...California? The federal Government?

Not every immigration issue is a constitutional question.

Did you read "all" anywhere in any of the above? Did you read "every" in any of the above? If it's heard it's heard. I truly hope that it is.

The ruling today is EXACTLY my point. We (as in anti-illegals) need to force EVERY case to the Supreme Court and make them rule on it. Sooner or later maybe the Feds will act if they see enough "ruling" and support to act.

I was confused when I heard of this ruling, because I knew that Arizona was following federal law so I didnt think it was the Obama Admin bringing the suit...

The heart of Thursday's decision centered on a few words in a 1986 federal immigration law. It said states and localities could not impose "criminal or civil sanctions (other than through licensing and similar laws) upon those who employ … authorized aliens."
http://www.latimes.com/news/nationwo...,5623472.story

Correction to the quote..."authorized aliens" reads "unauthorized aliens" in the federal law[ 8 U.S.C. 1324a(h)(2)].
.

Arizona was following federal law by imposing revocation of licences...This was a bad suit by the feds. The suit was brought by the US Chamber of Commerce.

Kris Kobach, the constitutional lawyer who has been the intellectual if not the actual author of many of the state immigration enforcement laws, was elated by the court’s recent decision.
