Arizona is defending against a multi-front in the Obama’s attempt to punish and destroy the rebellious state. Arizonans have the nerve to want to defend the border, and enforce the laws of the United States. The Justice department sues Arizona, before Judge Susan R. Bolton, at the ninth District Court. The only problem is constitutionally the court has no jurisdiction in the case.
“Article III, Sec. 2, clause 2 says: “In all Cases affecting Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, and those in which a State shall be Party, the Supreme Court shall have original Jurisdiction. In all the other Cases before mentioned, the supreme Court shall have appellate Jurisdiction.”
In other words, the Judge in the Arizona case has absolutely NO Constitutional jurisdiction over the matter upon which she ruled. As the Constitution makes abundantly clear, only the U.S. Supreme Court can issue rulings that involve a State.
Neither Judge Bolton nor the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco, to which the case is being appealed, have any legal standing whatsoever to rule on the issue.
U.S. Attorney-General Eric Holder filed the federal government’s lawsuit against the state of Arizona in a court that has no authority to hear the case.
The current Supreme Court is more rational by a tenuous five to four majority. Holder needed to buy some time and put an end to the Arizona impudence. Holders attack is double pronged and on the other front is a suit against the popular Sheriff Joe Arpaio, inspite of the fact that an ICE investigation just a year ago proclaimed the Maricopa County, “in its handling of illegal immigrants, acted in a professional manner and complied with a memorandum of agreement (MOA) under which the government gave them the authority to enforce federal law. That agreement included a ban on racial profiling.” The evidence is of course that this is more about politics than it is about concern of civil liberty’s
What happens now? It’s been nearly a year and a half since the investigation began, and the Justice Department has not charged the sheriff’s office with violating anyone’s civil rights. Instead, Thursday’s lawsuit goes after Arpaio for allegedly failing to cooperate fully in the probe.
“It’s a totally political lawsuit,” says Bob Driscoll, a former Bush Justice Department Civil Rights Division official who is representing Arpaio. “They want to find evidence of discrimination, but all they’re finding is evidence of law enforcement that includes immigration enforcement.” (The Justice Department did not respond to a request for comment.)
Failing to find proof of real discrimination in Maricopa County could ultimately doom the administration’s entire crusade in Arizona. The much-publicized suit against the new immigration law is based on the possibility that it might result in future discrimination, but at the same time the department is struggling to find evidence of civil rights violations in Arpaio’s office, which uses enforcement techniques similar to those outlined in the new law. There’s a real chance that in the end Obama’s war on Arizona will come to nothing.
Hopefully it will backfire, but this administration isn’t rational and seems to be in a blind rage into war against Arizona. They just don’t care if their attacks are rational or worthwhile. They do know they have more money and Lawyers than Sheriff Apraio and the whole state of Arizona, and maybe they can destroy the state Maricopa County Financially.
