The U.S. Supreme Court
has indicated it is interested in hearing an appeal from business groups that, for the past two years, have been trying to have Arizona's controversial employer-sanctions law thrown out.

The sanctions law, which punishes companies for hiring illegal immigrants and requires all Arizona employers to use a federal electronic system to verify the work status of employees, has been upheld by two lower courts.
Justices may hear disputed Arizona law

Thus far our employer sanctions law has held up under court scrutiny. Even the 9th Circuit Court AKA Lib Central left it alone.

Hmm, one has to wonder how Sotomayer would rule on this.

Those sanctions have pretty much put up a virtual electric fence around AZ as far as Illegals are concerned.

This only exemplifies the sheer desperation of pro-illegals. They are grasping at straws. Next, they will try to have our immigration laws ruled as unconstitutional, or a violation of the civil rights of illegal aliens.

The Supreme Court on Monday asked the Obama administration to weigh in on the issue before deciding whether to take on the case.

Related article. This will be interesting.

Phillips, a famed Supreme Court litigator, represents the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. The business group is challenging the Arizona law as part of a coalition of corporate, labor and immigrant groups that range from the American Civil Liberties Union to the Arizona Farm Bureau Federation.

In a closed-door conference Friday whose outcome was released Monday, the justices agreed to ask President Obama's solicitor general, Elena Kagan, to submit a brief outlining the administration's views. The justices will review this brief before they decide whether to take up the case.

For the Obama administration, the legal challenge, now dubbed Chamber of Commerce v. Candelaria, poses some potentially thorny questions.

The Arizona governor who signed the state law was Janet Napolitano, who now serves in the Obama administration as the secretary of homeland security.

Just like the fine for the last guy going after Obamas birth certificate, there should be even bigger fines for wasting the courts time.
