Your "win-win" has either the US constitution torn to shreds by ignoring the law. Article IV Section 2, the Supremacy Clause would be worthless. Or it ends up in a Civil War, which is the outcome you seem to want.
It's either the death of the rule of law, or the death of thousands of Americans. Are you out of your mind? Neither of those situations results in any form of "win."

All that would have to happen is the president tell the govenor to enforce her own laws. If she refused the DOJ could step in "independent" of the president and start a corruption probe. Then the president just sits back and watches as the top level is skimmed off and the chain of succession takes over. Special elections would be held for sherif and new mayors would apoint new police cheifs.
All it would take is a few dozen DOJ employees. There would be no need for troops or massive numbers of federal agents. It would be over and done before most people know what happened.

From what I'm hearing from my sources in Arizona, if you are someone in Arizona who shouldn't be in Arizona, you don't want to illegally spit on the streets.
You don't want to illegally pass gas downwind in Arizona.

According to this article it was all done in the wrong court by the wrong judge. This would mean that AZ still has it's law intact.
Article III, Sec. 2, clause 2 says:
In all Cases affecting Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, and those in which a State shall be Party, the supreme Court shall have original Jurisdiction.
One could only hope.

Obama is thinking of votes for the democratic party. This issue will mobilize more votes on the Mexican side period.
I agree. Ignore the ruling. Press the Feds and watch how many states run to the side of Arizona. Funding. Arizona will withhold all Tax revenue to the Feds until a proper hearing.
