Legislature on Illegal Workers? Wait Until Next Year! - NE StatePaper.com

The door is wide open. That sound you hear is illegals beating it back to their home Countries much to the demise of their corrupt Govts.

It's a start, but I think we're actually to see some work on getting illegal immigrants out. I wonder what happens when the Surpreme Court makes a ruling on SB 1070 because it's certianly going to be a landmark case.

This is one instance where I'm actually glad that the SCOTUS is stacked with conservatives. I am a social libertarian who usually votes Democrat, but I line up with the right on gun rights and illegal immigration!!!!

Even though the Surpreme Court (SCOTUS) is stacked with conservatives, I believe they are not letting political ideology get in the way of following the US Consituition.

This IS an excellent start! Wow, I was drooling while reading the article! I think I am going to look into starting a law titled "The Legal California Workers Act." Most of the corrupt politicians here in Ca will not sign it, but I'm going to try.

Those who are not conservatives however are operating under political idealogy and one of them is Sotomayer. She voted against this e-verify law. No surprise since she is Hispanic.

...which doesn't protect illegals from the consequences of their illegal activities.

Yes, this ruling on e-verify is a win, win for the American people. Thank God we have some SC justices who voted for the rule of law.

By Washington Watcher

George W Bush was one of the worst enemies of "patriotic" immigration reform, but we need to give him credit for the appointments of Samuel Alito and John Roberts to the Supreme Court.

Both men ruled in the majority to uphold the Legal Arizona Workers Act in Chamber of Commerce vs. Whiting. Roberts wrote the majority opinion—while Obama’s “Wise Latina” Sonia Sotomayor wrote the dissent.
