The court struck down most of the Arizona law. Okay…I get it. We have a system and we lost this one.
But SCOTUS kept in place one provision: Cops in Arizona can ask people for their immigration papers if there is reason to suspect they are illegal. Funny – this is the part we’re all called racist for supporting, but I digress…
The Obama reaction? From the Washington Times:
The Obama administration said Monday it is suspending existing agreements with Arizona police over enforcement of federal immigration laws, and said it has issued a directive telling federal authorities to decline many of the calls reporting illegal immigrants that the Homeland Security Department may get from Arizona police.
So… Obama decides he’s just not going to cooperate with Arizona at all. Isn’t that great?
But isn’t it federal law that is broken when we have an illegal alien here in the US? Isn’t THAT the point of the Obama win in the SCOTUS?
Let me get this straight… Obama claims that since it’s a Federal responsibility to enforce immigration law, Arizona can’t pass its own immigration law. He wins the case on those grounds, then says, “F you…I’m not going to help you when you do find an illegal.”
Normally, I would say, “Unbelievable…” But I’m not even surprised.
This post is about Obamacare, not immigration. But guess what?
The outcome will be VERY similar according to my magic ball.
My bet is that huge chunks of Obamacare, including the individual mandate, will be found unconstitutional. But that Obama and Kathleen “I like it when babies are killed” Sebelius will ignore the ruling and keep on putting the statist control mechanisms Obamacare intended from the start.
Obama won’t give a shit about how the Supreme Court rules. He’ll just go about his merry way regardless of the outcome.
Anyone want to bet me?
