Judge guts immigration law, sides with illegals


An immigration enforcement activist is outraged that a federal judge has caved to president Obama and illegal alien supporters in halting the implementation of most of Arizona's border enforcement law that will take effect tomorrow.

In a decision made earlier today, U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton gutted most of Arizona's immigration law by blocking its most controversial sections. The measure still takes effect Thursday, but it will do so without the provision requiring police to check a person's immigration status while enforcing other laws. Bolton also nullified the requirement that immigrants carry their papers at all times and the section which bars illegals from soliciting employment in public places.

William Gheen, president of Americans for Legal Immigration (ALIPAC), says it is hard to find words to express the anger and dismay this decision brings.

"This judge is obviously part of the same cabal as McCain and Obama, [who] want to take sides with illegal immigrants against American citizens," Gheen contends. "My main message to the country today is for people to stay calm, get politically involved and make every special interest politician and business leader that's responsible for this invasion of our nation pay in the approaching elections."

The ALIPAC president believes "the American government, Barack Obama [and] this judge just sided with illegal aliens against American citizens," and he concludes that the will of the American people has been usurped by this decision.

Arizona Governor blasts Phoenix Suns owner

An immigration reform activist says Arizona Governor Jan Brewer hit the nail on the head recently when she called the owner of the Phoenix Suns basketball team to task for his opposition to the state's tough immigration enforcement bill.

Governor Jan Brewer has been attacked from various groups inside and outside her state for boldly standing up for SB 1070, which is scheduled to take effect on Thursday (July 29) but is facing court challenges from the Obama administration and the American Civil Liberties Union.

Among those who have criticized the bill is Robert Sarver, the owner of the NBA's Phoenix Suns. In a May 2010 interview with ESPN, Sarver said the law calls into question "our basic principles of equal rights and protection under the law" and will cause Arizona's economy to suffer setbacks at a time when the state is already in economic distress.

But Governor Brewer recently crafted a response to the basketball mogul, asking him what would happen if (1) hordes of gate-crashers sneaked into Suns' games without paying and (2) the team could not ask for ticket stubs but would have to provide those people free food and drinks at the game and even be forced to provide free medical care if they were injured at the game.

Ira MehlmanIra Mehlman of the Federation for American Immigration Reform says the governor was right on the money.

"It's a perfect metaphor for what has been taking place in this country for a long, long time," he remarks. "If this was happening to a private enterprise like the Phoenix Suns, the ownership simply wouldn't tolerate it -- and for very good reason: it is money out of their own pockets."

"...There is no reason why we as a nation should be treated any differently than Mr. Sarver is in his money-making enterprise," Mehlman concludes.

The National Basketball Association is made up of 30 franchises. In December 2009 the Suns were ranked as the ninth most-valuable team with a value of $429 million. Sarver himself is among the wealthiest individuals who live in San Diego.

Arizona judge hearing immigration law case

An immigration reform activist is encouraged that the federal judge hearing challenges to Arizona's immigration law has raised the realities of what's happening in the state because of out-of-control illegal immigration there.

U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton has not indicated whether she will put the law on hold before it takes effect later this week, but asAssociated Press notes, she did go beyond "dry legal analysis" at court hearings on Thursday to point out some of the everyday realities of illegal immigration and how they apply to the new law.

The judge noted that the federal government erected signs in a wilderness area south of Phoenix that warn visitors about illegal aliens and drug smugglers passing through public lands. She also regarded the stash houses where smugglers hide illegals before bringing them into the country's interior as a fixture on the news in Arizona. (See earlier article)

Ira Mehlman"It would seem just from the questions that she is asking that unfortunately for the advocates for the illegal aliens in the Obama administration, they got stuck with a judge who actually lives in Arizona," observes Ira Mehlman, spokesman for the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR).

"She is aware of what is going on in Arizona," he continues. "She lives with it every single day, just as everybody else in Arizona is living with it. And that is precisely why the vast majority of people in Arizona support this law because they do recognize that it's having an impact on their lives, on their security, on their tax dollars, [and] on everything that's important to them." Mehlman concludes that it is "impossible to ignore the realities that exist."

While the FAIR spokesman is encouraged by the judge's comments, he is hesitant to predict how she will ultimately rule.

Congressional Committee to discuss "ethical imperative" to pass amnesty

I received this from Roy Beck of via email. Very important




25 million Americans who want a full-time job cannot find one.

But the leaders of the House immigration subcommittee of the Judiciary Committee is bringing in some big name preachers Wednesday to talk about the ethical need to give permanent work permits to 7-8 million illegal alien workers while refusing to open up the jobs for millions of unemployed Americans.

These congressional leaders' misuse of religion to justify their greedy desire for cheap new labor and cheap new voters cries out for an immediate response.

ACTION: 202-224-3121




It is so important that these callous Members of Congress know how repulsive their anti-U.S.-worker actions are to the electorate.

Please read my blog about this and get some tips for your phone call.

All of your comments on the phone should be about "ethical obligations."

The ethical obligation of Congress is to stop giving 75,000 new permanent work permits to foreign workers each month and to stop allowing 7-8 million illegal aliens to keep jobs that unemployed Americans want and need.


The Democratic Leadership is putting on this sad show. Let all the Democrats on the committee know that this callousness toward jobless Americans is really going to hurt them in this fall's elections.

But mainly talk about their moral obligation to the jobless citizens of their District.


The Republican Members are likely to oppose amnesty at this hearing but they will be uncomfortable to have religious leaders telling them that they are immoral.

A few of these Republicans have been champions of U.S. workers lately.

But most Republicans have done almost nothing during the Jobs Depression to loudly advocate for immigration reductions.

Thank the Republicans for holding the line against amnesty but also push them to be more forceful and public in advocating for major immigration reductions. And remind them that opposition to amnesty is truly what most churchgoers regard as the moral position to take.

Here are the Members of the Immigration Subcommittee. You can reach them through the Capitol Switchboard:



Howard Berman (D)
Judy Chu (D)
Elton Gallegly (R)
Zoe Lofgren (D)
Dan Lungren (R)
Linda Sanchez (D)
Maxine Waters (D)


Luis Gutierrez (D)


Steve King (R)


Gregg Harper (R)


Charlie Gonzalez (D)
Sheila Jackson-Lee (D)
Ted Poe (R)


Jason Chaffetz (R)

By Michelle Malkin

The Obama administration's lawsuit against Arizona, officially unveiled on Tuesday,

is an affront to all law-abiding Americans. It is a threatening salvo aimed at all local,

county or state governments that dare to take control of the immigration chaos

in their own backyards. And it is being driven by open-borders extremists who have

dedicated their political careers to subverting homeland security policies in the

name of compassion and diversity.The Justice Department's Civil Rights Division,

headed by Assistant Attorney General Thomas E. Perez, took the lead in prepping

the legal brief against Arizona. The son of immigrants from the Dominican Republic,

Perez is a far-left lawyer and activist who worked for the late mass illegal alien

amnesty champion Ted Kennedy and served in the Clinton administration DOJ.

While holding down a key government position there in which he was entrusted

to Perez rose from CASA de Maryland volunteer to president of the group's board of directors

Under the guise of enhancing the "multicultural" experience, he crusaded for an

ever-expanding set of illegal alien benefits ranging from in-state tuition discounts

for illegal alien students to driver's licenses. CASA de Maryland opposes enforcement

of deportation orders, has protested post-9/11 coordination of local, state and national

criminal databases, and produced a "know your rights" propaganda pamphlet for illegal

aliens depicting federal immigration agents as armed bullies making babies cry.

In 2006, CASA de Maryland threatened to protest at the schools of children whose

parents belonged to the pro-immigration enforcement group Minuteman Project --

and then headed into the Montgomery County, Md., public schools to recruit junior

amnesty protesters who were offered school credits for traveling with CASA de

Maryland to march on Washington.

As a former Maryland resident, I got to see Perez's militant friends and colleagues in

action. I watched CASA de Maryland President Gustavo Torres (who met with

President Obama last week) complain that motor vehicle administration officials

have "absolutely no right to ask for people's Social Security number or immigration

status to get a driver's license." I stood among CASA de Maryland grievance-mongers

who shouted, "No license, no justice! No justice, no peace!" while playing the race

card against naturalized Americans and legal immigrants who opposed the illegal

alien welfare state.

Perez himself derided secure-borders citizen activists as "xenophobes," but denied

painting the grassroots immigration enforcement movement as racist. Questioned by

GOP Sen. Jeff Sessions during his Obama DOJ confirmation hearing last year about

the illegal alien rights guide produced by CASA de Maryland, Perez grudgingly

stated that "the Civil Rights Division must not act in contravention to valid

enforcement actions of our federal immigration laws." But "act(ing) in contravention"

is exactly what the Civil Rights Division is doing in spearheading the challenge

to Arizona's valid enforcement actions of our federal immigration law.

Perez, Attorney General Eric Holder and the rest of the open-borders DOJ team

have invoked a "preemption" doctrine based on the U.S. Constitution's supremacy

clause to attack Arizona's anti-illegal immigration measure and oppose local and

state enforcement of federal immigration laws. Never mind that the Arizona law

was drafted scrupulously to comply with all federal statutes and the Constitution.

You gotta love Obama's fair-weather friends of the Constitution. When a state acts to

do the job the feds won't do, Obama's legal eagles run to the Founding Fathers for

protection. When, on the other hand, left-wing cities across the country pass illegal

alien sanctuary policies that flagrantly defy national immigration laws and hamper

cross-jurisdiction enforcement, the newfound federal preemption advocates are nowhere in sight.

abide by the rule of law, Perez volunteered for CASA de Maryland -- a notorious illegal

alien advocacy group funded through a combination of taxpayer-subsidized grants

and radical liberal philanthropy, including billionaire George Soros' Open Society

Institute (not to mention more than $1 million showered on the group by Venezuelan

thug Hugo Chavez's regime-owned oil company, CITGO).
