Chuck Schumer: We’ll Just See About Who Runs the State of Arizona

Because Democratic Senators can’t/won’t pass a budget, (and Mz. Wasserman Schultz doesn’t understand the process), Chuck Schumer says that in lieu of the Arizona immigration law getting upheld in the Supreme Court, he’s going to introduce legislation to over-turn the Court’s decision:
Anticipating an unfavorable ruling, Sen. Charles E. Schumer, a New York Democrat who is a critic of the Arizona law, said Tuesday that if the court does uphold the state’s law, he will introduce legislation to overturn that decision and grant the federal government sole control on immigration matters.
Mr. Schumer’s legislation would also overturn a 2011 Supreme Court case that upheld a separate Arizona law that requires all businesses in the state to check employees’ legal status using E-Verify, the federal government’s electronic verification system. link
Got that? Schumer could care less about State’s rights and plans to over-turn the electronic verification system to check legal status. Yet, ironically, he‘s in favor of requiring Senate campaigns to change over to electronic fundraising records to save a half million in paper annually:
“For transparency’s sake, it is time for the Senate to move to a modern system of filing of its campaign finance reports,” said Schumer, who chairs the Senate Rules Committee. “This bill would not only save hundreds of thousands of dollars for taxpayers each year, it would also help provide more immediate and complete access to campaign spending reports. The public deserves the utmost transparency when it comes to campaign finances, and the Senate’s switch to an e-filing system is long overdue.”
You’ve got to wonder how Schumer’s going to track the illegal immigration money with no e-verify. Perhaps Mr. Schumer’s retirement party is “long overdue”?
