And of course, its met with the requisite screams of “RASCIST” from the usual gang of leftwing idiots.
Alabama’s new law cracking down on illegal immigrants will likely survive legal challenges from advocacy groups that say it is unconstitutional and racist, analysts told Fox News.
The law, which takes effect Sept. 1, empowers police to arrest people suspected of being an illegal immigrant if they are stopped for another reason and requires businesses and schools to verify whether workers and students are in the country lawfully. It also makes it a crime to knowingly transport or shelter illegal immigrants.
As soon as Republican Gov. Robert Bentley signed the bill into law Thursday, the ACLU and Southern Poverty Law Center were vowing to defeat it in court.
…..Legal experts told Fox News that they expect the case to head to the Supreme Court where they believe the state will prevail.
“I think the states have the right to do this,” said Jay Sekulow, chief counsel for the American Center for Law and Justice. “I think it will be successful.”
Mark Krikorian, executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies, which advocates strict immigration laws, says the one in Alabama is fair.
“It does not go too far,” he said. “The ACLU will object to anything that involves immigration enforcement.”
But then, Obama’s DOJ has been too busy trying to crackdown on states and officials that enforce the immigration laws, protecting ACORN pals, engaging in selective civil rights, harrassing CIA interrogators, and assigning contrived rights to muslim enemy combatants.
Who has the time to do the right thing?
