I am not thrilled about my mothers decision to marry a cuban and he has been nothing but trouble for us. I see the serious issues in cuban and other foreign cultures that just don't exist as often in american culture. In a sense, I feel immigrants are more likely to be criminals, abusers and a higher population means a higher cost of living. I also understand, however, the humanitarian aspect of immigration. Many of these people are trying to escape starvation, war and other dangers. They have maladaptive behavior because of the conditions they grew up in, but all americans can seem to think about is their greedy and selfish desires. So typical...

Posted by: deadwrestler | December 12, 2011, 11:53 am. Clarence Thomas' wife was a paid lobbyist for the health care industry, and she lobbied against the health care law. Ergo, his family materially benefited from her lobbying efforts. Should he recuse himself? Can he be unbiased, when his family benefited like this from the health care bill? Now Kagan should remove herself from the healthcare hearing and her appointment
to the Supreme Court will show she has an unbiased view of law.

The Congress has authority over laws pertaining to immigration and naturalization of foreigners. However, there is nothing in there that says the states can't protect themselves against criminals, which is what illegal aliens are. Arizona needs to continue to enforce their laws regardless of what the Supreme Court rules. The federal government has become irrelevent. It's time for the states to start breaking off and going their own way. Greg MCB – Yeah it’s in the Constitution.

Every year they tell the same thing about EPA laws, The state can go by the federal version of the law, or may vote to make it tougher. Is the government really going to go there and set a new mandate on laws, because that is what they will open up. If your going to change one ruling, their will certainly be many more to follow. Lawyers have just won the lottery. I Have to sit through an EPA class every year because of Hazmat waste shipping.

Yeah, the LAWYER is dumb. You're smarter than he is. Whatever you need to tell yourself in an area you know nothing about. It's in The Constitution that the feds control immigration. If you're going to call somebody dumb "intellectually" you might want to spell it correctly. “Mr. Verrilli’s comment is so typical of this administration………simply ludicrous on its face, and intellectjually dumb!”………… Yeah, the LAWYER is dumb.

I have and know of numerous motorists, stopped for no reason repeatibly, and had to produce license, ID, registration etc. The local police run drunk driving screens, line the cars up through cones, and check for drinking, proper id, registration etc. ABC should do a story on these thousands of random stops and id/registration checks on normal citizens. If you're not in a car, you have special rights? What about the rights of the average pedistrian safety from crime or illegal weapons while walking down the sidewalk? How about random, drunk walking/association stops, they can do the id checks there? I think the whole thing is outrageous.
