Flash: US Supreme Court Shocks Nation by Upholding the Constitution

In 2007, the state of Arizona passed the Legal Arizona Workers Act (LAWA).  The law penalizes businesses who knowingly hire illegal aliens.  Penalties can range from fines up to and including the revocation of the firm’s business license.

Of course all of the liberals in Arizona and the federal government were outraged that Arizona would take such a measure to defend its borders and citizens right to jobs that were being stolen by hundreds of thousands of illegals.  LAWA was challenged on the basis of constitutionality and whether or not the states have a right to establish their own immigration laws.

Our founding fathers did their best to limit the role and power of the federal government while retaining most of the rights of government for the states.  In 2008, two lower courts both ruled that LAWA was constitutional, but the opponents continued to fight it and pressed on to the US Supreme Court.

Today, in what is sure to be a landmark decision, the US Supreme Court upheld Arizona’s law.  Justice and Obama appointee, Sonia Sotomayor voted against the Arizona law and Obama’s other appointee, Elena Kagan, recused herself from the Court’s hearing on the matter.  However, in a vote of 5-3, the Court upheld LAWA as being constitutional.

And now… the rest of the story. …..
