    and those a$$wipe illegals and the ACLU will lose....because, when one scrapes away the BS, illegals have NO right to be in AMerica and NO right to work in America....I say let every cop and meter maid round up every stinking illegal alien, every immigration lawyer and ship 'em all to Antarctica, where they can set up their own little fiefdom with their own rules....and no one will care.

    As I recall, the suit claims that only the federal government has the authority to regulate immigration. IF that's the case, it would also mean that the sanctuary policies of cities and states are also attempts to regulate immigration and don't hold water. They're even already illegal under federal law.

    The arguement is that the city is a sovereign nation and can pass any law. This arguement will not hold water and is contrary to Hines v. Davidowitz which the court voided a Pennsylvania law requiring the annual registration and fingerprinting of aliens. It also violates due process clause for US citizens who have to obtain the residency cards as well and the interstate commerce clause.

    Under specific provisions, state and local authorities can help enforce immigration law, but the police officials are acting as federal agents. Furthermore, police officials do have broad investigory powers, but neither holds to what Hazleton City passed.

    Yeah but if the Feds take a do-nothing approach, it won't be long before some state attorney general or even city prosecutor gets his case before a now conservative supreme court.
