All we need is 2/3 of the states on board to convene a Constitutional Convention
and matters such as immigration and healthcare can be put to rest. How many
states are obviously fed up with the way the Federal Govt is acting? 5? 10? 20?
It only takes 33.
Utah better do this then.Absolutely no "Sanctuary Cities."
NO AMNESTY. Go home. If you come back, come back legally, and learn to speak
English, because it is our national language. (U.S. English has consistently
given that their "A in English" award.) That's STILL my
BCS said: "and learn to speak English, because it is our national
language." It is, when did I miss that legislation?DF: You want to change the constitution? Conservative are soooo
So why does the state have the right to my identity when I get pulled over?
Your constitutional scholars are hand-picked by the AP to show a one-sided view
of this issue. Why didn't they quote IRLI or Judicial Watch law experts who
represent the other side of this issue?Fifteen years ago federal
legislation was passed INVITING local law enforcement to assist in immigration
enforcement. No, city cops cannot deport people...but they CAN assist in
identifying and detaining them.Programs like 287g, CAP and Secure
Communities rely on local involvement. Homeland Security's LESC exists for the
sole purpose of helping local agencies ID illegal alients. By law, the feds
MUST provide immigration status to local police on request.And the
constitutionality of Inherent Authority to inquire and detain have been verified
by the US Attorney General.In short, your constitutional scholars are
biased and wrong.Now, if a state wants to run their own guest worker
program...THAT could be a problem.
"Despite those refinements, the bottom line remains the same, legal
scholars say. Immigration is enforced by the federal government, and any state
attempting to tell the federal government how to enforce immigration laws is
stepping into potentially unconstitutional territory."Big
difference between the federal government taking the law to court, which they
did not, and the ACLU.According to your experts the the Utah compact
is completely out of line. Watching the media come out against enforcement, but
approve guest workers makes me question the validity of the national press on
I am all for sending the illegals back to were they come from. If the feds don't
want to do their job, then leave the state do it for them. I believe that if you
are here illegally, then they get no free pass, deport them and leave them come
back the legal way. Giving them free pass has only created a big problem this
time. When States passes law it such do so were they aren't given free passes,
but must leave the country and enter through the right way. If they stay then
they should suffer the price deportation and jail time if necessary.
