The lawsuit against AZ, like the administrations push for "selective" free speech through the DISCLOSE ACT, "selecting" not to lift the Jones Act & save the Gulf, and their "selecting" not to prosecute the open & shut voter intimidation case of the recent club wielding Black Panthers, you will see is just another case of the current administration using the "Selective Powers" clause they believe is in our Constitution....
Since SB 1070 is a virtual clone of existing federal law, Arizona’s sin against THE ONE, has nothing to do with the letter of the law. The Obama Regime isn’t worried that Arizona’s SB 1070 will ‘supercede’ federal law. The Obama Regime has its Colonista knickers in a knot because - unlike Uncle Sam under Vicente Bush and Pancho Obama - Arizona intends to defend our national sovereignty by - GASP - enforcing America’s immigration laws.
It’s ironic that the Obama Regime is so hot and bothered over a new, as yet unimplemented, Arizona law, when law enforcement officials in RHODE ISLAND, have been doing what SB 1070 mandates, FOR YEARS....[I]n Rhode Island, illegal immigrants face a far greater penalty: deportation.“There are police chiefs throughout New England who hide from the issue . . . and I’m not hiding from it,’’ said Colonel Brendan P. Doherty, the towering commander of the Rhode Island State Police. “I would feel that I’m derelict in my duties to look the other way.’’
From Woonsocket to Westerly, the troopers patrolling the nation’s smallest state are reporting all illegal immigrants they encounter, even on routine stops such as speeding, to US Immigration and Customs Enforcement, known as ICE. (Hot Air)
Why isn’t the Obama Regime suing Rhode Island? I can explain that in two words: BLUE STATE. If the stench of that selective outrage turd isn’t enough to suffocate you, let’s turn our attention to another glaring example: sanctuary cities.
If Uncle Sam really gave a damn about local governments which supercede federal law, they would paint a Justice Department bull’s-eye on sanctuary cities. Unlike SB 1070 which clones federal immigration law, sanctuary city laws do supercede federal immigration law. When will THE ONE nail any/all of them with a lawsuit? Never, because, he’s okey dokey with anyone who refuses to protect our national sovereignty. (H/T PIG)
As for those wondering what the "Selective Powers" clause is and where it is in our Constitution? There is no such clause as their is no such clause or power allowing the federal government or the President to strip individual states of their rights or enforcing laws they "select" not to like or that run counter to their desire of re-writing our Constitution.
