Supreme Court Sides ALMOST Entirely With Federal Government In Arizona Immigration Case!

Well, three out of four isn't bad!

But we still wish they could have abolished ALL of these ridiculously RACIST and unjust policies!

The U.S. Supreme Court finally ruled today MOSTLY in favor of the federal government in regards to the controversial SB1070, a policy in Arizona immigration that has caused quite a bit of controversy regarding its support of blatant racial profiling. Although the 5-3 vote was largely a success, the judges upheld the arguably most CONTROVERSIAL provision, which allows police to check the immigration status of individuals while enforcing other laws!

Ch-ch-check out a news report on the semi-victory!

According to Justice Anthony Kennedy:

"The national government has significant power to regulate immigration. Arizona may have understandable frustrations with the problems caused by illegal immigration while that process continues, but the state may not pursue policies that undermined federal law."

Luckily, it is no longer a crime for an illegal immigrant to work or seek work in the state, officers are no longer allowed to arrest individuals without a warrant purely on speculation that they may be illegal, and it is no longer a state requirement for immigrants to register with the federal government!

As for the last statute? The fight isn't over yet!

According to NBC's Pete Williams:

“There are other lawsuits against this law. There are several civil liberties groups suing in Arizona, claiming that this law is racial profiling, and those cases have yet to work their way through the courts.”

And we sincerely hope that once they do, this ridiculous RACIST, ignorant, and harmful law will be abolished for good!

EQUAL RIGHTS FOR ALL!

    "But we still wish they could have abolished ALL of these ridiculously RACIST and unjust policies!"

    That's ironic coming from a Democrat. Did you know that it was the Democrats that created the KKK in 1865, opposed the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and women's right to vote? So where's your white sheet, Perez?

    So if it was up to you, all illegal immigrants could just run around unaccounted for, the US not even knowing they are here, and we would not have the right to ask for ID. Perez, you have to be one of the biggist racists I know just by reading you blog. I have nothings against gays at all, but not everything gay is beautiful, decent, upstanding, brave and right. Immagration needs to be controled.

    Phoenix, Arizona is the kidnapping capital of the world. There were nearly 400 kidnappings last year in Phoenix and ALL of them involved illegal immigrants/drugs. Arizona's trying to protect its residents from the drug cartel violence that's spilling over the border and here we have Perez Hilton calling them racists. WTF? Apparently he's never been to Arizona and seen the violence first hand. I have and I'm never going back.

    How is it racist to try and stop people from living in this country ILLEGALLY???? These people come here…start dropping babies and live off the welfare system from then on. I'm tired of working to pay taxes to support these bottom feeders!!!!!

    It's racist because originally they could pull over and detain a person if they suspected they were an illegal alien. So if someone looks Hispanic, they would have the right to detain, no matter if they are legal citizens. That is racial profiling which is discrimination.



  10. 10

    I jusst do not understand WHY people fight against protecting our borders. Do they realize that these people break the law when they sneak in and then go right to DSSH and sign up for free health care, food stamps,etc. We are supporting these illegal's and anyone who says no we aren't obviously doesn't work in a medical field. We ARE giving them FREE medication, healthcare, food stamps.

    Our country is being taken apart and the democrats are the ones who are behind this destruction.

    IT'S NOT RACIST TO ASK FOR I.D.! I.D.'s are necessary for many things in this country.
    "Luckily, it is no longer a crime for an illegal immigrant to work or seek work in the state…" You do know that it is AGAINST THE LAW to hire illegals?

    And your "EQUAL RIGHTS FOR ALL!" statement..? Um….they're illegal citizens!! They're already breaking the law by coming into the country illegally. Giving them "equal rights" when they're not even legal citizens makes know sense.

    Stick to reporting asinine gossip and stay out of political concepts that are far above your understanding.

    I am a Hispanic female. I am dark skinned and have Hispanic features. I am an American. I speak 3 languages, including English.
    Since the age of 16 I have been working and paying taxes to my country.

    I would be completely OFFENDED to be asked for my I.D because a racist law says if I look it, I must be it.

    Ignorant.

    You really need to read the ruling firsthand as the most controversial part of the law was left intact. Police can still demand paperwork from people.

    Illegals don't have the same rights as fudgepackers such as you who are born in the US.



  17. 17

    Oh fuck you with that racist talk. If you're so into illegal people stealing into our country, why don't you pay for their healthcare, education (they don't speak English), crime and loss of tax revenue that comes with that? Not so willing, huh pookie?

    Re: summerpistol – Why would you be "offended"? Police ask people for ID every time they stop someone for a traffic infraction. What makes you so damn special?



  19. 19

    Re: Irvinegirl – Hey, by all means, theres a check point? sure, heres my ID. 21 and over? Sure her is my ID. Making a purchase? sure here is my ID.

    You look like an immigrant? Mmm… no fucking ID



  20. 20

    Re: summerpistol – Simple fact, you get stopped, you need to show ID. Granted, King barry wants to only pander to folks of Hispanic decent and make it seem to be about Mexicans but the fact is, if you were born here or immigrated LEGALLY, you should support this. It's the illegal aliens who are making those of Mexican, Asian, German, Canadian or any other country look bad.



  21. 21

    We need to round up ALL the illegals and deport them. Americans can't find work and having millions of illegals here makes it that much more difficult.

    SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) is the federal assistance program for food stamps. And although each state administers SNAP, the requirements for eligibility remain the same for all states.

    I realize that complete eligibility requirements are not listed on SNAP, although the presumption should be that undocumented immigrants are not eligible for food stamps—as it even states that non-citizens who are in the U.S. lawfully and temporarily are ineligible for food stamps.

    For further verification, you are able to view any state’s website for full eligibility requirements by navigating to Google and entering: (your state) food stamps.

    Using New York City’s Human Resources Administration, Department of Social Services as an example you can review the eligibility requirements for food stamps and see that, among other requirements, proof of identity is required, a social security number is required, and proof of immigration status for all non-citizens who are applying for food stamps is required.

    This is how the eligibility for food stamps is determined in each and every state.

    FACT:
    Undocumented immigrants do not receive food stamps.

    Re: Mad DogRe: YenkmeRe: Omniscient GalRe: CindyRe: LiberalsMakeMeSick

    The record-setting deportation of illegal immigrants under President Obama has drawn scorn from Hispanic Americans, despite recent administration efforts to temper the policy, according to a new Pew Hispanic Center study.
    Fifty-nine percent of Latinos said they disapprove of the president’s approach to removing illegal immigrants.

    Since 2009, the annual average number of deportations has approached 400,000, according to the Department of Homeland Security. That’s double the annual average during President George W. Bush’s first term and 30 percent higher than the average when he left office.
    Meanwhile, the flow of illegal immigrants into the United States has hit a decade low because of the down economy and stepped-up enforcement efforts.
    The dynamic has drawn protests from immigrant rights advocates and some Obama supporters, particularly Hispanics, who make up 80 percent of the nation’s illegal immigrant population and 97 percent of deportees last year.
    The Obama Administration has made dramatic improvements by developing clear immigration enforcement priorities for the first time ever that include focusing on those with criminal records, a smarter approach from a law enforcement perspective that also better reflects our nation’s values.

    Re: Cindy
    Phoenix, Arizona is the kidnapping capital of the world.

    The claim has been checked several times by PolitiFact.

    Neither the FBI nor the U.S. National Central Bureau of Interpol, an arm of the U.S. Department of Justice that serves as the United States' representative to Interpol, could confirm that Phoenix has the second-highest frequency of kidnapping cases worldwide. It's simply not tracked.

    But overseas kidnapping experts say that cities in Mexico and Latin America see significantly more kidnapping cases than Phoenix. The experts list Mexico City; Caracas, Venezuela; Tegucigalpa, Honduras; San Salvador, El Salvador; Guatemala City, Guatemala; and Bogota, Columbia as places with probable higher kidnapping rates than Phoenix.

    In fact, experts advise that such rankings can't be made based on available information. If they could, they speculate, other cities would prove to have more kidnappings than Arizona's capital.

    So we have found nothing confirming Phoenix as No. 2 in kidnappings in the world, or in the Western Hemisphere, or in North America.

    This claim has been rated false repeatedly as it has made the rounds, yet here it is again. If you repeat a statement that has been proven false, it amounts to a reckless disregard for the facts.

    "which allows police to check the immigration status of individuals while enforcing other laws!" No other country in the world allows their boarders to be wide open. When you get stopped by police in a different country, they ask to see your papers. No one complains or says anything. Gee, I wonder why people are going up in arms over this? Probably because its all illegals.

    So, let me get this straight…If you cross the North Korean border illegally, you get 12 years of hard labor. If you cross the Afghan border illegally, you get shot. Two Americans got 8 years for crossing the Iranian border. If you cross the U.S border illegally, you get a job, a driver's license, food stamps, a place to live, health care, housing, child benefits, education, and a tax free business for 7 years? No wonder we're a country in debt.

    "Luckily, it is no longer a crime for an illegal immigrant to work or seek work in the state …" I have yet to hear an argument that makes clear why exactly having someone break the law such as this a good thing. I have honestly considered both sides and read books that offer viewpoints from both angles. It mainly came down to both sides claiming evidence (from studies) that said that having illegal immigrants helped/hurt the economy (pro/con illegal immigration camps respectively). Upon reflection, I am against Obama's presidential decree granting illegal immigrants the opportunity to work in the US without penalty because 1) It's rewarding delinquent behavior 2) It's not fair to those who worked hard to gain legal citizenship and its accompanying rights 3) It's not fair to the US citizen who pays taxes. I have seen the article about the Cuban valedictorian potentially getting deported and other similar stories. Does it suck for her? Yes. And yes, we do in the process of upholding the law, lose a person who may grow up to contribute to our society. However, if the valedictorian vandalized a car, do we let him/her off because he/she is a valedictorian? No. No one deserves to be in the US. Those of us who are here legally are lucky to be here; that is just the way the world is - we are all given different circumstances. No one should play foul to even the playing field.

    As for this article you posted itself, I don't really know much about this law that the Supreme Court mostly overturned, but I will say I am against racial profiling since I would never want my ethnicity used against me like that.
    Lastly (I know this is long but I hope someone reads this), Perez, I applaud you for trying to use your platform to do good. However, please do not act self righteous and as if you were the voice of political justice when you are truthfully not. I don't say that maliciously but perhaps to shed some light. RPatz, as he so unfondly likes to be called, was quoted on this site about a week ago saying that he doesn't think celebrities have the authority to try to coerce people's opinions about politics because that's not their jobs. I'm not an expert either. When I am torn on an issue, I don't go with any opinion really, I just say "I don't know." I think that maybe you should try that method because frankly, as awesome as a happy go lucky "Change we can believe in" mantra is, the world does not work so simply.

    Perez, you got some balls. The real unemployment rate in this country is at about 12% nationwide. When these filthy foreign criminals (that you clearly have a hard-on for) are finally kicked the fuck out then the wages will increase and more AMERICAN CITIZENS will have jobs. Why do you hate Americans so much?
