High Court Upholds Arizona Law

FINALLY! A positive for those of us championing the illegal alien ouster in this country! Arizona can impose sanctions on businesses that knowingly hire illegal workers. They can also lose their business license. WOOHOO!!! About time the SC ruled correctly! Take that Obama!

Well all I can say is that at least they're punishing the businesses who employ undocumented immigrants instead of going after the migrants themselves. Hopefully the with this the witch hunt against immigrants in America will calm down a bit.

Its too bad that people just looking to work, and make better lives for themselves suffer so much discrimination.

I think its sad. They are people, not "Illegal Aliens".

For hundreds of years they have been working the farms, and labour jobs that most in the area aren't even willing to do.

Losing them as workers, but not subsidising the farmers will bring a downfall in the agricultural community in the area.

I hope you are just as happy when the food prices begin to soar.

Not immigrants. Illegal immigrants.
My family on both sides got their visas and came to this country. Even became citizens.
My wifes parents got green cards.

It's not an impossible task to come to this country legally.
Maybe it's not easy but not impossible.

This is a giant leap in the right direction and hopefully will signal a brighter future for states rights.

Good win, but the Progressives will find a way to circumvent it... just like they always do.

First and foremost they are human beings who don't deserve to be victims of a hate campaign for trying to make a better life for themselves and their families.

Yep, wanting a better life "trumps" breaking federal law to do so, more then likely being involved one way or another with illegal gangs to get here and then getting work by either lying about ID, stealing/assuming ID or working under the table.

My life would be better living rent free in your house. Please provide your address so I can make my trek to better living.

Hunting down and arresting criminals is not discrimination.

You can't be both?

Illegals dominated these fields because they can be payed bellow minimum wage, not because normal resident won't do the jobs.

Would you advocate "hunting down and arresting" illegal drug users by stopping anyone that looks like they might be a drug user and detaining them until they pass a drug test?

Actually being under the influence is not the crime. So your logic does not apply.

Exactly.

People who are citizens are willing to do the same jobs as illegals. The only differance is that they want decent wages, health care and paid vacations.

that makes me laugh, how many "americans" work under the table... or lie about thier ID's...

"Many are associated with gangs" are you kidding, please post your source thank you.

The argricultural sector is suffering, and no one wants to work there, and the government does't want to help the farmers by subsidising them to pay for workers, which means that America has to BUY MORE FOOD, from other countries, where they pay their workers next to nothing, and have food shortages.

But as long as they are not working in your backyard, and far away out of sight it's alright.

Did you read the article?


WASHINGTON -- The Supreme Court has sustained Arizona's law that penalizes businesses for hiring workers who are in the United States illegally, rejecting arguments that states have no role in immigration matters.


That is what "progressives" wanted from Arizona. Looks to me like Arizona compromised on it's "stop any brown guy" law and passed what the "progressives" suggested would be a better alternative. Can you show me any place where any liberals, progressives, or Democrats argued against punishing businesses for hiring illegals?

If they receive public assistance, yes indeed! If I have to pass a drug screening to get a job, then they should have to pass one to get assistance!

I never said one thing about being under the influence. I specifically asked about an illegal activity. So your logic seems to be missing altogether.
