Decision is Big Win for White House

Rate this Entry

Some analysts are saying the upholding of the "show me your papers" provision is very bad news, but the actual decision is better than what people are saying. The Court says basically that the challenge of the ACLU on civil rights grounds still has a good chance and that the state of Arizona better be very, very careful how it applies the section and that the Court could very well invalidate the provision depending on how it is implemented. Hardly a ringing endorsement. I'd say it's not a 100% win, but give it a 4 on a scale of 5 as far as getting what we hoped. The fact that Justice Scalia wrote the dissent is probably all you need to know.

    This lawsuit is a big drama and distraction as it does nothing to solve the real crisis of a broken immigration system. Instead of using its time productively by trying to find a solution for immigration situation in the country the administration with politics and 2012 in mind went ahead and challenged SB1070 in haste. The administration also allowed a border state like AZ to hijack the entire immigration discussion and dictate its will on the remaining states because of its unwillingness to fix the broken immigration system. Till date there has been no genuine plan from the administration to fix the immigration system. Now both parties are in full campaign mode and will promise anything to win the votes but will there ever be an immigration reform , only time will tell.
