  • What is going on in Illinois, Georgia and Alabama?

    A new Illinois law gives illegal immigrants access to private scholarships for college.
    Gov. Pat Quinn signed the law Monday at a high school in a Latino neighborhood inChicago.
    He called the occasion a "landmark" day and told an auditorium of people that education is the key to opportunity in a democracy.

    A group of Atlanta-area immigration attorneys went so far as to sue the White House in federal court here, seeking to compel it to challenge Georgia’s House Bill 87. The White House never budged. But on Monday the Justice Department filed suit to block a similar law in Alabama, just as it did in Arizona last year.

    The government has filed a suit against Alabama’s draconian anti-immigrant law, which it said conflicts with federal laws and makes it too easy for police to detain people suspected of being in the country illegally. Modeled on Arizona’s infamous SB 1070 but taking it to even greater extremes, the Alabama law is considered the most pernicious of a series of state anti-immigrant laws passed this year.

        According to the founders of the Constitution this is the nation of the laws and not men.
        Of course, Jesusists conveniently ignore it when useful to advance their causes, and stick to it only when advocating indiscriminate mass imprisonment of undocumented aliens.

              The words "dictatorship" and "law" are oxymoron.
              In dictatorship one decides affairs of state with utter disregard to any laws.
              In Constitutional democracy the law reigns supreme and no man is held above it.

              Also, what we have in US is representative democracy with divided branches of government to counterbalance and prevent excesses and provide protections for minorities,all embedded in the Constitution itself.
              What we have is NOT Athenian mob-dictatorship democracy where multitudes would gather in a public forum and decree to throw from the high rock to feed the dogs any citizen they disagreed with.
