Quotes of the day

While the Supreme Court’s mixed decision on Monday on Arizona’s immigration enforcement law gave a big political boost to officials there who supported it, the ruling does not seem likely to unleash a new wave of legislation by other states to crack down on illegal immigration…

The court also allowed, and even invited, lawsuits against Arizona’s law that are based squarely on civil rights claims that it would lead to racial profiling against Latinos and other immigrants — issues that did not arise directly in the current case. Many civil rights groups, predicting that the police provision of the law would rapidly lead to discriminatory actions by officers once it takes effect, said on Monday that they were ready for that fight.

“If state governments enact new immigration bills, we say bring it on, we will see them in court,” said Anthony D. Romero, the executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union. His organization has participated with other rights groups in a separate lawsuit against Arizona over the law, known as S.B. 1070, and against immigration enforcement laws in other states.

***

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer called it “a victory for the rule of law.” But for many police chiefs, Monday’s U.S. Supreme Court decision upholding the “show me your papers” provision of SB 1070, the state’s immigration law, looks like a big headache

With officers across Arizona forced to walk a tightrope of legal complexity, cash-strapped municipalities also worry they could soon be defending a flurry of lawsuits by the federal government, civil rights activists and irate motorists — distracting police from their main goal of fighting crime.

“We absolutely expect lawsuits on both sides of this issue,” said Tucson Police Chief Roberto Villasenor. “This will result in our officers being tied up in court rather than working on the streets to reduce crime.”

***

The provision requires police to make a reasonable attempt to check the immigration status of people they stop, even for an offense such as jay walking, if they suspect that they are an illegal immigrant.

But for Estrada, in Santa Cruz County where more than 80 percent of the population is Latino and where many speak Spanish at home, requiring deputies to try to determine the status of those they arrest and suspect are undocumented presents challenges.

“If you are going to guide yourself by the color and the language, you’re going to be racially profiling, so you are going to have to avoid that,” he said…

Smythe said he was concerned that if “the litigation arena got bad enough for any given city you could almost bankrupt the city in some kind of ridiculous legal battle.”

***

The Justice Department has set up a hotline for the public to report potential civil rights concerns regarding the Arizona law that requires police to check the immigration status of those they stop for other reasons.

The hotline phone number is 1-855-353-1010. The email is: SB1070(at)usdoj.gov.

The Department of Homeland Security’s refusal to cooperate with Arizona’s court-tested crackdown on illegal immigration has field agents fuming, FoxNews.com has learned…

The agent who talked to FoxNews.com said his colleagues are as outraged as he is and that federal policy makes it impossible to catch illegal immigrants who are criminals, unless they are caught in the act.

“The biggest problem with their catch-and-release method is that ICE does not have an effective process for identifying detainees,” he said. Most detainees do not carry identification on them and they voluntarily provide their name.

“This leads to a larger problem. … We already know that there are difficulties with confirming identities of detainees, so how can ICE be sure that they are not putting a criminal back on the street?”

***

The past two weeks have offered Mitt Romney numerous opportunities to clarify his stance on immigration — and every time the presumptive Republican presidential nominee has taken a pass

“I think the common thread on his immigration responses since the primary has been that he is talking in politicalspeak, which means he has perfected the art of saying something without saying anything,” said Ana Novarro, a Republican strategist who served as co-chairwoman of Sen. John McCain’s National Hispanic Advisory Council during his 2008 presidential campaign.

“I think Mitt Romney can tap dance his way around the immigration issue until November, but he will pay a price with it. Not only with Latinos, but with other voters. Trepidation, ambiguity and equivocation are not qualities that the American people look for in a president,” she said.

“This is now a lawless administration,” Hannity said, noting that our country has separation of powers and checks and balances. Davis retorted by offering Hannity “the facts.” He said the “Supreme Court itself said let’s be cautious about enforcing this law of these reasonable stops because it’s vague, and we are only ruling on a matter of federal power, not on other constitutional grounds.” Davis and Hannity then clashed over whether or not Obama said the immigration law would not be enforced. That’s where the lawlessness comes in, Hannity argued…

If the president “doesn’t like the law, he can change it,” he said. “But he’s got to get Congress to go along with him.”

One of my wife’s coworkers, who, until today, did not have a clue that China’s economy is in SERIOUS trouble and thought Obama is doing a pretty good job. (Yes, he is a maroon.)

Global markets are my day job, now. (I just come here for a change of pace)

When my wife laid out for him what I have been telling her for the last 6 months, he got really troubled and said,

“China’s economy shrinking would be really BAD!”

Those are the idiots who will NOT pay attention until they are FORCED to pay attention.

Remember in the 2008 campaign when one of his dope-smoking adoring sycophants in the media referred to him as a “light-worker”, or maybe “lightworker”. In reality, given what we have been told of his White House work schedule, he seems to be more of a “light worker”, but I digress.

Said this on a dead thread:

When the police detain someone identified to be an illegal alien and the police call the feds, they will get a “meh, whatever response”. The police should then detain said illegal alien until the feds show up. ACLU, et al should then be directed to the feds for failure to respond, the AZ police are simply holding a person who is suspected of committing a federal crime and it is at the convenience of the feds that the detainee’s detainment time is set.

AZfederalist on June 27, 2012 at 1:54 AM

The Justice Department has set up a hotline for the public to report potential civil rights concerns regarding the Arizona law that requires police to check the immigration status of those they stop for other reasons.

The hotline phone number is 1-855-353-1010. The email is: SB1070(at)usdoj.gov.

Hope everyone here has at least sent an email and the more “off the wall” the better. They can’t send their gestapo after a large number of “traitors” to the Obama Reich.

Dear sir/madam,

I think my civil rights may have been violated. The pizza and beer I ordered never came. I suspect that the Arizona police arrested the pizza delivery driver on some wild suspicion of his being illegally in the country just because he can’t speak English very well and doesn’t have a drivers license or insurance. I think this was all a ruse so that the police could eat my pizza and drink my beer. Without my pizza I am now starving and feel this is a clear violation of my civil rights. I am also very thirsty without the beer which I feel is another violation of my civil rights. I can’t buy another pizza or more beer now until I get my new food stamp allocation from our wonderful food stamp President. All I have now to eat is the left over lobster and potato chips and skittles that I bought with my food stamp card yesterday. Please send federal marshals to Arizona to check this out and arrest the Arizona police if they look like they may have eaten or drank anything recently.

At the risk of sounding stupid, though that hasn’t stopped me before, can the state deal directly with the Mexican Gov? Or are the Feds the only ones to take up that kind of business. Treaties and whatnot.

While that is true, I think arnold ziffel has it right. Given the fact that the feds will ignore calls in perpetuity, even baloney sammich costs will start adding up. Better a one-way bus trip to Obama’s House (as he referred to it at one time early in his regime, “my house here”)

I’m not a lawyer, but my understanding is that only the federal government can deal directly with foreign governments. State governors can have delegations and fact finding trips, but any actual agreements must be at the country to country level (as it should be). I’m pretty sure prisoner transfers have to go through the State Department.

On the F&F thread I posted the 6-7 testimony by Holder in front of Issa. I had never seen it until today. It was just terrible. Issa asked a question and Holder just danced around. He acted exactly like suspects do when the detectives question them—exactly.

Clinton pulled the same crap as well but that was a no win, trying to grill the president.

I don’t mean to side-track our chit-chat with on-topic comments, but what gets me in the whole thing is the selection of our president of which laws he will enforce, and which he won’t.

Hannity (Don’t know what he makes, but it’s too much) only got it partially correct: The executive branch executes the laws of the US. ALL of the laws. I.e. POTUS does not have a choice in the matter.

I know a president can subtlely de-emphasize laws that he doesn’t agree with idealogically–Obama’s not the first to do that. But to issue executive orders, basically saying his administration will not enforce US laws…

That s**t has me steamin’. (Hello? Americans?!!?)

LOL! Only on QOTD at 2:04 EDT would someone say, “I can’t stay late …”

Good song, Grace

PolAgnostic on June 27, 2012 at 2:21 AM

Alright.
Nighty, night, folks.
Nice cc’ing with y’all again.

RedCrow on June 27, 2012 at 2:22 AM

SparkPlug, peach is now, she just wanted to finish up the years strawberrys tonight. She only uses fillings from around here. My fav is pecan, end of summer for that. I have a friend with many trees, he doesn’t use them anymore. We fill up sacks with them, sure I have to pick, but trust me on this. It’s worth it. I have blueberry bushes,probably my fav. There is an old recipe called blue berry rollie pollie, originally huckleberry, served hot with an ice cold fresh mad custard. It is good. Yum! I like all pie.

rofl!!..Sounds like a plan!..:)

Dire Straits on June 27, 2012 at 2:23 AM

Ooh, ahh, rice pudding. Especially when it’s fresh out of the oven.

4Grace on June 27, 2012 at 2:21 AM

.
I have no pudding

:(

but I did have cake!

;)

PolAgnostic on June 27, 2012 at 2:23 AM

Yeah, still a bit chunky, though. I prefer to just buy those pixie sticks and snort those. Pure, 100% sugar. That’s how our special trolls go on those 16-hr commenting runs.

4Grace on June 27, 2012 at 2:17 AM

Nose candy? Hehe

SparkPlug on June 27, 2012 at 2:24 AM

RedCrow, force?

Bmore on June 27, 2012 at 2:24 AM

We’re supposed to get 104 tomorrow…

OmahaConservative on June 27, 2012 at 2:21 AM

I feel your pain. I think we are supposed to drop to a pleasant 102 tomorrow. Gag.

My heart really breaks for those firefighters in Colo. Wearing all that gear, working ungodly hours, battling frayed nerves, trying to save homes. Wasn’t it like 110 there today?

4Grace on June 27, 2012 at 2:24 AM

RedCrow on June 27, 2012 at 2:13 AM

Thumbs up!..:)

Dire Straits on June 27, 2012 at 2:25 AM

Night, RC!

4Grace on June 27, 2012 at 2:25 AM

The custard is not mad, it’s made. iPad.

Jimi !!!!

G’night, RedCrow

PolAgnostic on June 27, 2012 at 2:26 AM

Bmore on June 27, 2012 at 2:23 AM

I forgot to mention egg custard. Love it. Sounds like you got all the best that nature has to offer.

And you know good pie.

SparkPlug on June 27, 2012 at 2:26 AM

OmahaConservative on June 27, 2012 at 2:21 AM

I haven’t been on HA for a couple of days. How is Norm doing? And June?

4Grace on June 27, 2012 at 2:27 AM

Good Night RedCrow, Sleep Well.

Inferno from hell. I lived in San Diego for thirty years until Sept 2005. I will never, ever forget fire and brimstone…

OmahaConservative on June 27, 2012 at 2:29 AM

SparkPlug, I want some laying hens. When things slow down a bit. I always wanted a cow. I’m not an early riser though.

Bmore on June 27, 2012 at 2:29 AM

arnold ziffel on June 27, 2012 at 2:14 AM

We have to break thru!..:)

Dire Straits on June 27, 2012 at 2:29 AM

RedCrow, force?

Bmore on June 27, 2012 at 2:24 AM

Lol. Impossible.
I would say the entire middle class pulls a “Ghandi”*, except you know my (single) conspiracy theory: Those in power have every motive to keep the middle class at each others’ throats (man v. woman, hetero v. homo, black v. white, etc…) in order to keep their grasp on power.

If the middle class could ever come together to realize that the politicians are our “shared” problem…we could solve it.

* In this case, “pulling a Ghandi” means refusing to go to work, buy anything, pay taxes, etc. (It’d take about two days to take over the government and ship the aholes out.)

Bmore on June 27, 2012 at 2:29 AM

LOL! I am so tired and simpled out, that segue just caught me off guard.

4Grace on June 27, 2012 at 2:31 AM

RedCrow on June 27, 2012 at 2:22 AM

Excellent tune!..:)

PS..Later..Enjoyed it!..:)

Dire Straits on June 27, 2012 at 2:32 AM

I’m in this kinda a mood!..:)

Dire Straits on June 27, 2012 at 2:10 AM

Good mood. It even played on the iPad thingy for a change.

I can do that.

Bmore on June 27, 2012 at 2:34 AM

Nice tune you played earlier!..:)

Bmore on June 27, 2012 at 2:26 AM


Have I ever mentioned I have OCD issues?

No? Well, I do. Seriously.

My daughter’s favorite story about it:

She’s watching me take left over scraps from steaks my son grilled, cut them up into even pieces and organize them into groups of 4 pieces (4 dogs, 1 piece per group per dog).

I look up at her watching me and say,

“Well?!? How would you organize the scraps for the dogs???”

In a slightly raised voice she responded,

‘I wouldn’t! They’re dogs! They don’t care if the scraps are organized!’

She was right.

After, say midnight Eastern time, I don’t think you need to “fix” your typo’s for us.

Just sayin’ :)

PolAgnostic on June 27, 2012 at 2:36 AM

R.I.P. Nora Ephron.

You may disagree with her confused politics, but When Harry Met Sally and Sleepless in Seattle were great chick flicks. And 71 is too young to go.

John the Libertarian on June 27, 2012 at 2:15 AM

Hear!..Hear!..:)

Dire Straits on June 27, 2012 at 2:36 AM

Nice tune you played earlier!..:)

Dire Straits on June 27, 2012 at 2:34 AM

Thanks. Haven’t thought of Loving Spoonful in a long time.

They actually opened for…wait for it…Steve Martin in my college days. It was back when SM did the arrow cap and the “Well, excuuuuuse me!”

I can’t remember if the LS were still together, or if it was just the singer.

4Grace on June 27, 2012 at 2:38 AM

I can do that.

Bmore on June 27, 2012 at 2:34 AM

Lol!

Well, yeah. You and I could do it. (You could probably convince most folks who hang out here to do it.)

So: How do we get 100 million to do it?
.
.
.
So: Figure it out, guys. My brilliant plan is in your capable hands. Now I must to bed with me. (I’ll expect a working plan by noon, today. Thanks.)

RedCrow on June 27, 2012 at 2:38 AM

PolAgnostic, it’s habit, same reason I always call people by thier nics and not thier real names. Plus I am truly a creature of habit. German in me I reckon.; )

Bmore on June 27, 2012 at 2:40 AM

PolAgnostic on June 27, 2012 at 2:36 AM

Hilarious story.

4Grace on June 27, 2012 at 2:40 AM

In a slightly raised voice she responded,

‘I wouldn’t! They’re dogs! They don’t care if the scraps are organized!’

PolAgnostic on June 27, 2012 at 2:36 AM

She says that now… until the dogs rise up against their arbitrary masters.

I would’ve done the same thing, unless the dogs were of much different sizes. Then I’d have gone proportional.
