Obama to Court: Drop Dead
Within hours of the Supreme Court’s decision on the Arizona immigration law — leaving in place a core section of the law that allows local law enforcement to continue checking the immigration status of anyone suspected of being an illegal — the Obama administration has just said it will no longer enforce the law.
Fox News reports that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security — that would be Secretary Janet “Big Sis” Napolitano — has just announced that the Obamites are “suspending a key program that allowed state and local law enforcement to enforce federal immigration law.”
In other words, they didn’t like the Court’s ruling so — they simply will not enforce the law because they don’t like it.
Why? The unspoken reason?
Progressives need to play the politics of race or they are out of business. So Secretary Janet Napolitano has just played the race card — effectively telling the Court to drop dead.
Who cares about the Constitution when the Latino vote is so critical?
Shades of George Wallace.
