With today’s decision of federal Judge Susan Bolton to disallow the portions of the Arizona immigration bill (SB1070) that would allow illegal migrants to be put in ICE custody, at least one city, Freemont, Nebraska, has rescinded their own bill mimicking Arizona’s. The ACLU and the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund (MALDEF) were threatening lawsuits, and so Fremont caved. Mark Krikorian, the executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies says the ACLU hopes Fremont will start a trend.
[Krikorian] But I’m not aware of any city that has passed an immigration-related measure and that hasn’t been sued by the ACLU, said Krikorian. “Their goal is intimidation. They are going to sue you until you cry ‘uncle.'”
And so it goes with the communists at the ACLU. It is time to separate basic human rights from civil rights. If you are in the country illegally, there should be no right to civil rights. Human Rights, yes. Civil Rights no.
Arizona governor Jan Brewer says this is far from over. She is filing for an expedited appeal to the 9th Circus Liberal Court of Appeals in San Francisco. That’s a complete time waster but necessary, as she can’t get to the U.S. Supreme Court without the Marxists on the 9th Circuit rendering their decision first. The decisions coming out of the 9th are routinely overturned by the Supremes. Let’s hope SCOTUS will agree to hear the case after the 9th Circus embarrasses themselves as usual, and thumbs their noses at the Rule of Law. From Governor Brewer:
“I will battle all the way to the Supreme Court, if necessary, for the right to protect the citizens of Arizona. Meanwhile, I also know we still have work to do in confronting the fear-mongers, those dealing in hate and lies and economic boycotts that seek to do Arizona harm.
“We have already made some progress in waking up Washington. But the question still remains: will Washington do its job, and put an end to the daily operations of smugglers in our nation, or will the delays and sidesteps continue? I believe that the defenders of the rule of law will ultimately succeed with us in our demand for action.”
I support the ACLU when defending constitutional rights, but they routinely oppress the rights of others by simply suing, intimidating and waiting for the cry ‘uncle.’ How many winnable law suits have been dropped because of ACLU threat tactics? Being illegal in America is not a civil right.
