In Anticipation of a Supreme Court Decision Supporting S.B. 1070, the Other Side Hangs Crepe

Published on May 1st, 2012

According to Capitol Hill insiders, including a Washington, D.C.-based lawyer present at the Supreme Court oral arguments, the Obama administration and its allies are psychologically preparing for a major defeat in the Arizona S.B. 1070. The decision will be handed down in June. Advocates, my source informs me, are bracing themselves for what would be a devastating set back in their relentless efforts to defy immigration enforcement laws

After Justice Elena Kagan withdrew, citing her previous work as a U.S. solicitor general, the odds for an administration victory fell dramatically.

Win or lose, however, the feds are determined to get their pound of flesh from patriotic Arizonans who support S.B. 1070.

The FBI is probing Attorney General Tom Horne’s possible campaign violations— normally a matter the feds consider too minor to waste their time on. Horne, along with Governor Jan Brewer, brought S.B. 1070 to the Supreme Court and has drawn the White House’s ire.

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio is also under Justice Department siege for his long standing pro-enforcement actions. An investigation into Arpaio’s alleged racial profiling practices, discriminatory jail practices and unlawful retaliation started three years ago. Then, earlier this month when it appeared that Justice and Arpaio could reach an out of court settlement, the government abruptly broke off negotiations.

In the meantime, the other side has read the tea leaves. Anticipating defeat, its major spokesmen are panicked. Frank Sharry, prominent illegal alien advocate sent a memo to his America’s Voice followers claiming that if the court upholds S.B 1070:

“It will effectively legalize the harassment and discrimination of an entire population – just because of the color of their skin or the accent with which they speak.”

Sharry added that if S. B. 1070 is allowed to go into effect:

“Citizens and immigrants alike, especially Latinos, will be treated as a suspect class.”

Sharry knows that these are outrageous lies. But desperate times call for desperate measures.  If, as expected, the Supreme Court upholds all or most of S.B. 1070, it will be patriotic Americans’ single largest triumph. Not only will Arizona police be allowed to check the immigration status of suspected aliens when they’re stopped for a separate offense, but other states (Alabama, South Carolina, Georgia, Indiana and Utah) that have passed similar laws will have the same right.

Another group of eight states have Arizona-type legislation in various stages. Those are Pennsylvania, Mississippi, Colorado, Kansas, Louisiana, North Carolina, Texas and Tennessee which have similar legislation in various developmental stages.
