Supreme Court Sides With Arizona on E-Verify
VICTORY! The case of U.S. Chamber of Commerce v. Whiting, et al. (09-115)
In a 5-3 decision, the United States Supreme Court upheld an Arizona law called the Legal Arizona Workers Act which makes it illegal for employers in the state to intentionally hire an illegal alien, and it gives county attorneys authority to enforce this restriction, with escalating penalties for employer violations.
Frustrated at Congress’s inability — or unwillingness — to close the borders and crack down on employers who prefer to hire illegal aliens over American workers, state and local governments began adopting their own policies to deal with the 30 million non-citizens who have entered the country illegally.
Nowhere has that effort been more energetic than in Arizona, which shares a 389-mile-long border with Mexico. The State of Arizona decided that, in the vacuum created by the federal government, it would take matters into its own hands, regarding arrest and detention of illegal aliens, employment verification requirements and other policies it deemed necessary to protect the citizens of that state.
Their actions were immediately challenged by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and a who’s who of leftist and pro-immigration organizations and people including the National Immigrant Justice Center, the American Immigration Lawyers Association, the American Immigration Council the Asian American Justice Center, the Anti-Defamation League, the Asian American Institute, Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund, Asian Law Caucus, Asian Pacific American Legal Center of Southern California, Latinojustice PRLDEF, Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, the League of United Latin American Citizens, Legal Aid Society – Employment Law Center, Los Abogados Hispanic Bar Association, National Council of La Raza, National Day Laborer Organizing Network, National Employment Law Project, Southern Poverty Law Center, the Service Employees International Union, Romano L. Mazzoli, Senator Arlen Specter, and Representative Howard L. Berman. (we included this list in its entirety so you can recognize who stands against the American worker and supports open borders, mass immigration, cheap immigrant labor and amnesty).
