Obama v. America

President Obama, through the agency of his pet ape, Attorney General Eric Holder, has filed a federal lawsuit against the state of Arizona in an attempt to destroy the state’s new law against illegal immigration. While the case will be formally called The United States v. Arizona on the court’s docket, it should be called Obama v. America.

This is not just an attack upon the state of Arizona; it is an attack upon the good people of America, the vast majority of whom support Arizona’s SB 1070.

In their 25-page complaint, President Obama’s lawyers argue that Arizona’s measures are pre-empted by federal immigration laws and policies, the supremacy and interstate commerce clauses of the Constitution, and by Supreme Court precedent, all of which, Obama’s myrmidons claim, have established that immigration matters are exclusively under federal power to enforce or not as they see fit.

The nation’s immigration laws reflect a careful and considered balance of national law enforcement, foreign relations, and humanitarian interests. Congress has assigned to the United States Department of Homeland Security, Department of Justice,and Department of State, along with other federal agencies, the task of enforcing and administering these immigration-related laws. In administering these laws, the federal agencies balance the complex – and often competing – objectives that animate federal immigration law and policy. Although states may exercise their police power in a manner that has an incidental or indirect effect on aliens, a state may not establish its own immigration policy or enforce state laws in a manner that interferes with the federal immigration laws.

This, coming from the man and his administration who have previously had no problems with states passing laws that directly contradict existing federal laws, is equally pathetic and pernicious. It plainly shows that he has no respect for America’s laws and is only concerned about threats to his perceived authority and to his agenda, which is far more about placating the Hispanic voters than it is about enforcing a solid and sane set of immigration laws and policies.

Yes, it’s Obama v. America but be assured that, one way or another, America will win.

    While I definitely see a point in Arizona’s law, weren’t you arguing against the law when it was first introduced? If I didn’t know better, I would say that you are simply opposed to Obama’s plan of action for the sake of being opposed to Obama. But, that obviously can’t be the case.

    mcnorman,

    Very true, but Obama doesn’t need to raise funds for himself right now and hasn’t shown any great effectiveness in raising funds for other Dems to-date.

    I think that is partially because he drained the well in ’07 – ’08 and partially because the Blacks donated to him and voted for him solely because he was Black and are uninterested in other elections.

    Arizona, on the other hand, is benefiting from an upswell of involvement in the political process by the American people.

    zhann,

    I have never argued against SB 1070. In point of fact, I’ve always been a firm supporter of it, though I think it is perhaps too lenient to be truly effective.

    Where in my previous posts on the topic did you get the idea that I was against Arizona’s new law?

    I’m forced to start wondering, since you’ve made this “opposed to Obamas plan of action for the sake of being opposed to Obama” before, if you’re own prejudices aren’t leading you into either delusion or the cynical perfidy that has become so common among the Liberals in their war against America’s people.

    Personally, I far from agree with everything Obama does. Recently, I tend to disagree with his policies more often than I agree. However, I don’t remember a single instance where you agree with him, so far all I remember is venom. It seems that you are doing exactly what you criticize liberals of, extreme bias. When you only see one side of the equation, your opinions don’t hold any weight (unless your name is Glenn Beck, Olberman, or the myriad of other biased news casters).

    My views may be biased in certain areas, global warming for example, but I tend to avoid bottle-necking my views simply because of previous prejudices. Even during Bush’s era, I hated the man … not at all because of his political party, but entirely based on how much terror he caused around the world. This view biased me in many ways against Bush, but I still found myself agreeing with him on many policies. I find it almost impossible to find 2 people completely diametrically opposed in all situations.
