Feds oppose merger of immigration challenges

Lawyers for the U.S. Justice Department oppose a request to merge their challenge to the new Arizona immigration law with a lawsuit by a police officer who also is seeking to overturn the law.

The federal lawyers oppose Phoenix police Officer David Salgado’s request to consolidate the cases because they say it would prejudice or delay their challenge.

The officer’s attorney had argued that the cases are virtually identical because they claim the state law is trumped by federal immigration law and because both seek to keep the state law from being enforced.

The Justice Department says it’s challenging more sections of the law than Salgado and that its contention that the law is trumped by federal law differs from the officer’s arguments.

  1. A very easy way to stop illegal aliens coming into this nation? Make it a felony and 5 years in prison instead of a stupid civil infraction. Make Washington enact E-Verify a permanent and mandated law, along with 287 (G) arrest, question and detain for ICE. Companies must–SHOULD– be held responsible for applying a new and modified E-Verify with massive penalties, including painful fines, business asset confiscation and imprisonment. WITH FEDERAL COURTS EVIDENTLY AGAINST A STATE PROTECTING ITS CITIZENS-LEGAL RESIDENTS ECONOMICALLY AND FROM OVERWHELMING CRIMINAL ACTIVITY aND THE ILLEGAL ALIEN INVASION. Locate detention centers in the deserts of America, with tent cities like Sheriff Arpaio has in Arizona for all illegal aliens. Reward whistle-blowers, for those informing on businesses, corporate, factories and stores that are hiring illegal aliens. Build the–REAL–double, parallel border fence and a standing in-perpetuity military zone. The real fence is not is constructed now, as their is no second fence within the perimeter of the barrier between Mexico and our sovereign nation.

    In conclusion remove all political incumbents who approve of AMNESTY of any kind and those who undermined the Arizona SB1070 immigration law in their speeches. WE HAVE A COMFORTABLE PLACE FOR CAREER LAWMAKERS IN NOVEMBER–THE JOBLESS LINES AT THE EMPLOYMENT CENTER.THIS SHOULD INCLUDE GOVERNORS, MAYORS, JUDGES AND POLICE CHIEFS, APPEASING SANCTUARY CITIES , TOWNS AND MILLIONS OF ILLEGAL ALIENS AND HOUSEHOLDS. Tell what your federal or State Senator and Congressman can expect, by wording your furious disapproval at 202-224-3121 Discover the truth not lies at NumbersUSA and JudicialWatch on illegal Immigration. The epitome of Pro-amnesty and allies of special interest, open borders is Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV), Nany Pelosi, Janet Napolitano and many more.

  2. It is evident that not only the President’s administration but the judicial system has no interest in keeping the American people and our country safe. The people of Arizona put forth the effort to do something about the Mexican INVASION of both Illegal Aliens, Drug Cartels, and terrorists from third world countries and have some judge that Obama directed to take and make the law little more than useless. If President Obama had America and it’s peoples safety in mind he would have encouraged Arizona. Instead he wants to push amnesty through so that he can screw America over more than he has already.
    Come November remember who has been trying to destroy America. THE LIBERAL DEMOCRATS. Come 2012 remember the Unamerican Traitor Obama and vote him out.
