ITEMS


1. Comment: Novel Legal Theories - The Supreme Court will soon


issue an opinion on the Arizona E-verify case. Immigration Daily


has pointed out many times that we believe that the Supremes will


rule in favor of Arizona. Such a ruling would be a double-edged


sword. Under the theory that the state may issue licenses using


such criteria that it deems fit, the state of Utah has enacted


legislation extending work authorization to undocumented


immigrants. Several other states, including New York, are


contemplating similar bills. While we believe that such state


laws would be preempted, testing a novel legal theory in court is


a privilege which cannot be denied any state, regardless of where


it stands on public policy toward the undocumented - unfriendly


like Arizona, or friendly like Utah. Such testing merely points


out the failure to act of the party where the ultimate


responsibility lies - US Congress. We urge our federal


legislators to take note of the initiatives of the states and


rise to the occasion.
