Looking at the fact that the 9th Circuit Court refused to hear challenges to our Employer sanctions Law...............I am not so sure that NJ's law will fail.

LOL, guess who controls both chambers in the state senate and house of reps? Democrats.

Now of all the laws that have been passed, the chambers were controlled by republicans not democrats.

From what I heard on TV last night, the bill is bi-partisan.

And your point is? almost every bill introduced is bi-partisan, but it's up to the leadership to decide if it can be voted on. I doubt the dem leadership on the house side will allow that.

The bill was introduced BY A DEMOCRAT. Your partisan ramblings are in error.

Actually the 9th circuit only refused the emergency injunction and not the challenge to the law. Hearings are set for this summer.

I dont think many of you really understand NJ politics. It is different than other states. The courts here rule above all others. The judiciary is the dominant branch of NJ government. Even our Governors get constantly bullied by the courts. And the courts are seriously LIBERAL. They have mandated that the 31 poorest school districts get as much money per student as the richest school districts. The poor get it from state aid while the rich get it from local property taxes. Just this year, they mandated that 2.8 billion be spent rebuilding schools in poor neighborhoods...even though the state is $33 billion in debt. I dont know where they expect the money to come from. They mandated that farmers cannot sell their land to developers. All kinds of crazy, socialistic laws get passed in this state. We call it the People's Republik of NJ.

The judiciary stepping over their bounds is a way of life here. While I'm sure this seems very foreign to most of the country, it is a unfortunate fact of life here. Even if the senate & legislature vote for the bill and governor signs it, there is NO WAY the judiciary will let this law pass. I wish it weren't true, but it is.

LOL; guess who signed off on our Employer Sanctions Law, our governor Janet Napolitano. A Democrat.

yeh NJ is extremely corrupt

Why spend another 2.8 billion to send illegals, who make up a large portion of the poor towns, to school?

If there were no illegals we could just use a small portion of that change to help out the black kids
