Mike Cox, Michigan attorney general is planning to file a brief to support the Arizona laws. According to him, the States must protect their borders because the federal government is not assisting in protecting such borders. As I have mentioned in my last show on July 5th 2010, the issue is not going to stop in Arizona. The domino effect is on, both pro-immigration and anti-immigration groups seem to be strong and with the economic situation deteriorating day by day in the United States, the focus is being placed on immigration. Indeed, immigration is being blamed for the lost of jobs of many Americans although studies have show this is not true.
Other prominent republican candidates in Michigan are also calling for the Obama Administration to remove its lawsuit against Arizona. With a conservative US Supreme Court, such laws might unfortunately be found constitutional.
It will be disastrous if such laws are found constitutional because it will clog the immigration legal system, cost money and have very devastating impacts on the day to day lives of many innnocents.
We have a duty to make sure that the US Constitution is upheld and assist the ACLU, ABA, and other civil rights organizations to fight such laws. Please help us protect the “land of free and the home of the brave”.
