Arizona immigration law once again before the US Supreme Court

The U.S. Supreme Court is scheduled to hear arguments Wednesday on Arizona’s employer sanctions law.

The law allows prosecution of employers who knowingly hire illegal immigrants.

Gov. Jan Brewer will be among those in attendance inside the huge, white marble court house on Capitol Hill listening to arguments on the 2007 law.

Lower courts have upheld the employer sanctions law that former Gov. Janet Napolitano signed after it was enacted by the Legislature.

Eleven U.S. and Arizona companies challenged the law.

They claim sanctions for employing illegal immigrants should be federal law and that the Arizona law puts an unfair burden on Arizona employers.

    THE MEXICAN PEOPLE ARE INDIGENOUS TO THE NORTH AMERICAN CONTINENT.
    MEXICO, U.S.A., AND CANADA ARE IN THE NORTH AMERICAN CONTINENT.
    THE ORIGINAL MEXICAN PEOPLE ARE THE AZTEC-MEXICA AND ALSO MANY OTHER NATIVE PEOPLE FROM MEXICO AND THE U.S.A.

    THE ANCIENT HOMELAND OF THE AZTEC-MEXICA, IS THE PRESENT-DAY GREAT SALT LAKE, UTAH.

    WE CAN PROVE ALL THE ABOVE IN FEDERAL COURT. IT IS TIME FOR THE AZTEC-MEXICA NATIVE AMERICANS TO SEEK OUR OVERDUE FEDERAL RECOGNITION AS NATIVE AMERICANS FROM THE U.S. GOVERNMENT. THE U.S. GOVERNMENT HAS TO GIVE US SOME LAND, MONEY, AND EDUCATIONAL AND MEDICAL BENEFITS. WE HAVE ALL THE EVIDENCE, MAPS,DOCUMENTS, ETC., TO WIN IN FEDERAL COURT.
