Brewer files SB1070 appeal in Supreme Court

Lawyers for Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer filed their opening brief with the U.S. Supreme Court in her appeal of a ruling that blocked enforcement of the most controversial sections of the state’s immigration enforcement law.

The governor is asking the nation’s highest court to overturn a ruling that, among other things, barred a requirement that police — while enforcing other laws — question the immigration status of those they suspect of being in the country illegally.

Brewer lost her first appeal in April when a three-judge panel of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals rejected her request to overturn a July 2010 decision by U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton.

The Supreme Court will hear arguments on the Arizona law on April 25.

  1. While the Governor continues her plight on SB1070, as well as to sell her book, remember that there are children (many American born) that will be impacted when parents get pulled over and taken away. The legislature has a responsibility to look out for the best interests of the children and insure their constitutional rights and their safety. The question is, who will pay for these type of law enforcement actions? Right now law enforcement is not investigating child sex crimes against children. Law enforcement is broken! What makes us think they have the resources to become immigration officers too? Think carefully about the children born on American soil! They have rights too and taxpayers in this state have always supported children!

  2. Gov.Brewer is Standing up for the Constitution and The People of Arizone & the U.S.
    stand 100 percent behind her.the liberals can put any spin they want but in the end the facts will prevail.As for the Mexican Govt. filing a “Freind of the court” brief I can only say with “Freinds” like them ,who needs Enemies?

  3. If immigrants went through the proper process to rightfully be in this country then their children would not have to worry about what would happen when their illegal parents got pulled over. there is a way to be in this country but it is not by sneaking around because you don’t want the government to know you are here. you would imagine that a parent would want to give their children every opportunity possible and not subject their child to the possibility that they might be arrested and get the BIG BOOT from Uncle Sam. Everyone has a right to do better for their families but there is a way to do things and everyone should have to follow the law. What kind of mother or father would do that to their children
