COURT DECISION ON AZ SB 1070 IMMIGRATION LAW
TYPICAL OF POLITICIZED FEDERAL JUDICIARY
Outrageous Decision of Judge Bolten Gutting the Law Not Surprising Given Her
Appointment by a Democratic Administration
The People Come Second to the Judge’s Career Prospects
(Phoenix, Arizona, July 29, 2010). Today, federal judge Susan R. Bolten issued a preliminary injunction in effect gutting Arizona’s new law designed to stop or at least curtain the massive flow of illegal immigrants into the state, and its attendant costs and risks to the citizens.
Larry Klayman, founder of Judicial Watch and Freedom Watch issued this statement:
“After many years of legal practice, I had no difficulty predicting the result. Judge Bolten, who was appointed to the court during the Clinton administration, knows that if she is ever to be nominated to a higher post – perhaps at the Ninth Circuit – that she better not rule against her benefactor, the Democratic establishment now lead by President Barack Obama.
Regrettably in her zeal to cover her own political flanks, the people of Arizona and the nation have been treated as unimportant. This is just another example of the judiciary feathering its own nest, at the expense of the people.
Judge Bolten’s decision ruling unconstitutional the questioning under AZ SB 1070 of persons who are stopped for ‘probable cause’ – to determine if they are in Arizona legally – is not only outrageous, it also conflicts with established law that police officers can probe into such matters once “probable cause exists.” Now, it is even unclear, given the judge’s politically motivated ruling, that they can even follow the law that existed before AZ SB 1070. Judge Bolten in her zeal to bow down to and further the pre-election strategy of President Obama and the Democrat establishment, has subverted legitimate law enforcement and endangered the citizens of Arizona.
Freedom Watch, which represents the Arizona Latino Republican Association and its CEO, Jesse Fernandez, both of whom support AZ SB 1070, will take this matter to the U.S. Supreme Court for redress. My clients intervened in this case to tell the American people that Latinos also respect the law and are proud to be part of this country, and want to play a major role in solving the illegal immigration problem. The rich Latin culture has added greatly to our nation and its values.
This country is on the verge of revolution, as we were in 1776, because the sovereign and its court system refuse to address the people’s grievances. I hope to avert this by using peaceful means to ‘overthrow’ the establishment, which is destroying our nation.”
