    Judge Blocks Key Parts of Immigration Law in Arizona

    PHOENIX — A federal judge on Wednesday, weighing in on a clash between the federal government and a state over immigration policy, blocked the most controversial parts of Arizona’s immigration enforcement law from going into effect.

    “There is a substantial likelihood that officers will wrongfully arrest legal resident aliens,” she wrote. “By enforcing this statute, Arizona would impose a ‘distinct, unusual and extraordinary’ burden on legal resident aliens that only the federal government has the authority to impose.”

    Oh for god's sake. :rolleyes:

    Yes! Everyone wants illegal aliens to break the law! Ridiculous and utterly lacking with knowledge of this issue.

    "I got it!"

    The patient looked at the doctor, mouth agape. "You took the whole foot!"

    "Yeah, but I got that damned infected toe, didn't I?"

    So then what the **** is Arizona supposed to do to keep illegal immigrants from taking over their state? If the federal government has sole authority and responsibility for enforcing our immigration laws, what the hell are they waiting for? No wonder there is a growing hatred of illegal immigrants and those who support and harbor them when they can so freely break our laws without any consequences and do so without any apparent guilt about it whatsoever.

    You're right, it isn't the American way. It's deplorable.

    What they should be doing is taking the land by force, coining a patriotic phrase in reference to a fort that was a place of battle, then create a movie where an odd fellow becomes convinced his stolen fanciful bike is hidden in its non-existent basement.

    You're being a little vague. Care to clarify?

    Are you kidding me? This ruling in no way keeps Arizona from prosecuting illegal immigrants who break the law. All that has been ruled is that police have no obligation to determine someone's immigration status.

    Anything they like as long as it's legal, constitutional, and doesn't infringe on the liberty of American citizens. If hey can't come up with laws within that framework then they're going to have to start looking for other solutions.

    Exactly, which this law clearly is not.

    I think I've made my thoughts on immigration know in numerous threads previously. I don't think there is a short-term fix. It's going to have to be a long-term one that comes to grips with the fact that you're geographically attached to other countries and working with them is the only way you're going to make headway. Unfortunately fences, guns, "tough on illegals", and waving flags is all something that appeals to a large proportion of the population when it comes to utilizing them for political gain, depsite not accomplishing anything.

    I think what .Andy is saying is that we need gun-toting fences adorned with flags that hurl racial epithets at foreigners.

    If the federal government began to do the things that Arizona wants to do, there would probably be a huge effect in the form of self-deportation, but we will probably never know because it seems that the federal government doesn't really want them to leave.

    Be nice if the government pretended to enforce the laws instead of trying to persuade judges to fight against it.

    Even when the law is (in the government's opinion) unconstitutional?

    I would think a person like yourself would be concerned about that.

    Or do you just pretend to be?

    Your mistake here is that you're trying to find consistency in Libertarianism.
