Obama challenges (another) Arizona immigration law in Supreme Court!

Take ActionALERT! Obama challenges (another) Arizona immigration law in Supreme Court!

Not content with criticism and threats against Arizona's new immigration law, the Obama Administration has asked the Supreme Court to overturn rulings by lower courts that upheld a previous Arizona law allowing the state to revoke the business licenses of employers who intentionally or knowingly hire illegal aliens. The Legal Arizona Workers Act, which passed in 2007 and took effect Jan. 1st, 2008, allows the state to suspend or revoke the business licenses of employers that violate the law.

A three-judge panel of the most liberal Court of Appeals in the U.S., the Ninth Circuit, unanimously upheld the constitutionality of the Legal Arizona Workers Act. The panel rejected the plaintiffs' claims that the act violated the supremacy and due process clauses of the U.S. Constitution.

Attorney General Holder and DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano vociferously criticized Arizona's new immigration law, and then admitted they had not read the bill. Now Obama is seeking to overturn a law Arizona passed in 2007. Tell President Obama to butt out of state efforts to assist in enforcing immigration law, efforts made necessary by the failure of the federal government.

ACTION NEEDED: Ask President Obama to withdraw the Justice Department's brief against Arizona in the Supreme Court and put the federal government back in the business of enforcing our immigration laws. Take Action Now! Click to Send a fax or an e-mail!
