First, a federal appeals court said it was illegal to deny bail to immigrants in the country illegally. Then, on Monday, an Arizona federal judge blasted a state law that stretched the crime of identity theft to include everyone from forgers to people simply seeking employment without valid documentation.

U.S. District Judge David G. Campbell in Phoenix ordered an immediate halt to the state’s enforcement of identity theft laws that penalize immigrants in the country illegally for seeking employment. Campbell said the Arizona law is at odds with corresponding federal statutes.

Then "judge" Campbell; maybe you need to be impeached for protecting illegal aliens over US citizens.

No wonder Gov. Brewer couldn't get anything done about illegal immigration in her state with the feds constantly bucking her on it. It is not illegal for an immigrant in the U.S. illegally to apply for a job? Unbelievable!

So Federal Statutes says it's ok for id theft if it's done by an illegal because they are only looking to get work ?

WTH...does the USG care anything about its citizens ? Seems we are nothing but revenue-bots for them.

I know. It appears we've become the employment agency and flop house to the world. As long as one can violate our sovereign borders they are home free. Unfortunately, times have changed and we do not have the jobs and resources to support an increasing and uncontrolled population growth from foreigners who want to take up residency here it is taking its toll on our own citizens. Many are just claiming refugee status when that isn't the case at all based on our criteria for that.

So does that mean E-Verify (federal program) is no longer relevant?

The judge is simply following federal law. Judges are bound by such things..in every state.

Being in the US illegally is against Federal law, too. But the judges don't have the balls to enforce THAT law it seems.
