Joe Arpaio defeats immigrant groups in court; Arizona ID theft law upheld


#1

The Ninth Circuit got one right? Amazing!:eusa_think:

Good for Sheriff Joe and the 9th Circus, 0bama and thugs will be saddened.:howler:

States can impose their own stiff penalties on illegal immigrants and others who steal identities to get jobs, a federal appeals court ruled Monday, upholding Arizona’s law and dealing a setback to immigrant rights advocates.

The decision is yet another victory for Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio and more broadly for Arizona, which has been a pioneer in trying to find ways to punish illegal immigrants, stepping into a void left by the Bush and Obama administrations.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said there are still some questions about how police and prosecutors use the identity theft laws, but on their face they do not violate the Constitution nor trample on the federal government’s ability to set national immigration laws.
