This item from the Jewish Telegraphic Agency will likely run in hundreds of Jewish newspapers around the country over the next few days and will hopefully keep the pressure on CNN to deal with Dobbs' nightly nativist rantings.
When will CNN end this misery and send Mr. Dobbs packing?

San Diego Union Tribune Columnist Rubin Navarette, Jr. writes about how the anti-immigration wing of the GOP has proven to be much weaker than anyone expected.
Maybe Michigan legislators were reading my blog and decided economic suicide might not go over well with voters. So they have approved legislation that allows most people in legal status to get drivers licenses and not just citizens and green card holders. Maybe they heard about the McCain victory?
Judge Wake has upheld Arizona's employer sanctions law which allows the state to revoke business licenses and requires employers to use E-Verify. In his decision, he writes that Arizona complied with the Immigration Reform and Control Act by imposing sanctions by "licensing and similar laws" as permitted in IRCA and by referring to federal law in defining an "unauthorized alien" and determining whether an individual in lawful status (unlike other states which often have more restrictive definitions).
The plaintiffs argued that a business license could not be revoked without federal proceedings against the employer. But ht judge rejected the argument stating that this interpretation would reduce the express authorization of state "licensing and similar laws" almost to nothing.
The decision will likely embolden legislatures looking at business license laws. But legislators should be cautious here. IRCA specifically included language that arguably permits the Arizona license law. Many states have been passing rules that go much further than Arizona.
