Arizona told to stop prosecuting job-seeking (illegal) immigrants

A federal judge ordered an immediate halt Monday to Arizona’s enforcement of identity theft laws that penalize immigrants in the country illegally for seeking employment.



U.S. District Judge David G. Campbell said in his order that the laws are at odds with federal statutes that protect such immigrants from prosecution simply for applying for work.



Federal law makes it a crime to use falsified documents, but draws a distinction between identity theft and application to work. The application to work by an immigrant in the country illegally is not, in itself, a crime under federal law.

Arizona tried to change that. In bills passed in 2007 and 2008, Arizona changed the definition of identity theft to include attempts at employment by immigrants in the country illegally. Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio began to enforce them. 

A group of plaintiffs challenged those laws, including a woman who was convicted of identity theft and a taxpayer in Maricopa County, which includes Phoenix. They objected to using taxpayer dollars to enforce the law. Arpaio tried to get the suit thrown out of court.



The plaintiffs argued before Campbell that the federal rule on employment applications by immigrants in the country illegally supersedes Arizona law. To resolve those challenges, Campbell took into account a 1947 U.S. Supreme Court case that says courts should assume that “the historic police powers of the states” aren’t superseded “unless that was the clear and manifest purpose of Congress.”

Shameful of this LIBERAL Judge, he is anti-Christian / anti-United States of America Everything!!

You are correct Sister. Legally the judge cannot come against present laws without due process. He is doing this to avoid the legalities of it!. He wants Arizona to bow and they have every right to reject his decision as he did not use due process! He needs to make decisions against these laws and that takes much time. Liberals are noted not to obey the legal process to avoid the times that honorable Americans have to go through!

Never mind the "due process" NO FEDERAL  JUDGE CAN EVEN LAWFULLY BE IN ANY STATE,  MUCH LESS OPERATE IN IT IN ANY WAY. Kick the darn Federal court out or arrest the judge for just being there  plus his trying to dictate to the state and over-throw state law.  That is the same as any Foreigner trying to over=throw the govt - the state govt is being attacked there and they need to make an example of that Federal trespasser. The state laws are over any and all Federal anything that comes along - DC has  not real power = the STATES are who have the power ! Time the states take back their power and set things right and straight and put DC in its place instead of bowing to it.

Arizona, tell them to shove it! 

Ditto!!!!

U BET THEY CAN SHOVE IT UP OVOMITS ASS

Yes, it is law so support what you are doing. This idiot anti-American judge has no right to tell anyone to ignore present ;laws! We know BO does all the time and this judge the same! He can climb a post like he thinks his ancestors did!

The plan is to keep wages low and continue to suppress middle class americans by flooding the country with illegal aliens who are getting welfare on top of incomes from jobs they are taking from us. They get hiring preferences for being a minority.

Things won't get better until americans understand this.

oh god he is an a** hole put in by clinton I live in PHX  idiots this man he has b een violating our laws forever!

*Edited Offensive Word, Please Re-Read the Members Rules!!*

Hang the illegals.

Oren,

Right on. The judge must think that the States need to get federal approval for their laws. Like most progressives he must also view the States as mere administrative units of the NATIONAL government.

ALERT ALERT

Joe Biden Vows: Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare To All Illegal Aliens In U.S.

Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden is vowing to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

During an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegal aliens from enrolling in healthcare plans — although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free healthcare at Americans’ expense — and promised that under his plan, all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:

DIAZ-BALART: When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …

BIDEN: Yes.

DIAZ-BALART: — to health insurance.

BIDEN: Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else.

DIAZ-BALART: Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t.

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that.

DIAN-BALART: They cannot under the ObamaCare.

BIDEN: Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could.

Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.

Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized healthcare, emergency room visits, and other health services.

Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs. Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.

As Breitbart News has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”

Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.

Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates. A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.
