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a 1947 U.S. Supreme Court case that says courts should assume that “the historic police powers of the states” aren’t superseded “unless that was the clear and manifest purpose of Congress.”

How can we find this movie ?

Does it have a link to see it as some do ?

Do we need to buy it, or is it on TV ?

Sounds good.

THIS JUDGE HAS NO RIGHT TO TELL OTHERS TO IGNORE PRESENT LAWS ON THE BOOKS! THEY HAVE TO BE REMOVED BY HONORABLE MEANS AND HE KNOWS THAT TAKES TIME! HE DOES NOT HAVE THE AUTHORITY TO ISSUE AGAINST PRESENT LAW. ARIZONA HAS THE RIGHT TO DO WHAT THEY ARE DOING, AND LEGALLY SO!

Contact the ACLJ about the legality of this order! They will file against it since the judge did not use due process in his decision! God bless American and Arizona!

Dear God in Heaven...not punish for identity theft.....you and I would be in prison...I am so tired and fed up with this agenda 21 crap!

Arizona Keep Prosecuting them Don't listen to the Appointed Obama Mouth piece of a Judge He doesn't Make The Law, The Law IS the Law He can't tell you what to do. We diffenetly have an Out of Control Judicial System as well.

Obama Lies Again: – Ignores That The Year After Signing The Stimulus More Than (4) Million Jobs Were Lost

Former President Obama, the only President in US history who had his FBI and other Intel agencies spy on the opposition party candidate, claims that he created the great economy that Americans are enjoying today. The only thing Obama created was debt and massive job losses with his horrible economic recovery.

Yesterday the former President tweeted an effort to take credit for President Trump’s successful economy:

Joe Hoft@joehoft

Of course another @BarackObama lie. He can’t open his mouth without lying. 11 years ago the US lost (4.3) million jobs over the next 12 months. Horrible liar. https://twitter.com/barackobama/status/1229432034650722304 

Barack Obama  @BarackObama

Eleven years ago today, near the bottom of the worst recession in generations, I signed the Recovery Act, paving the way for more than a decade of economic growth and the longest streak of job creation in American history.

President Obama’s policies were a disgrace and a failure. He doubled the national debt in spite of zero interest rates from the Fed. His recovery was the worst in US history.

Also, Obama’s assertion is just plain false. The ‘Stimulus’ was passed in February 2009 right after Obama took over the Presidency. He promised to not pass any bills for at least a week to allow for the bills to be read by the people but lied as soon as he was sworn in. The Stimulus was hundreds and hundreds of pages of government handouts to Democrat districts and it was close to $1 million. This was not what America needed and it led to the Tea Party.

Far-left Wikipedia has this to say about the Stimulus:

Note that in his infinite wisdom, NYT economist Paul Krugman is credited with arguing that “the stimulus was far smaller than the economic crisis warranted”. (He also said the markets would crash and burn if President Trump was elected President.)

The data shows that the 12 months after Obama’s stimulus, the US lost 4.3 million jobs:

In Obama’s first three years he netted a loss of 1.5 million jobs compared to President Trump who has added more than 6.7 million jobs.

When it comes to the economy, the billionaire schools the community organizer every time.
