The Supreme Court has wrapped up releasing its decisions today, and no decisions were released in the Obamacare or Arizona immigration law cases. The key decision released today was a loss for SEIU on imposing fee assessments on non-members for political purposes.  The case is being portrayed...

The U.S. Supreme Court upheld an Arizona law requiring employers to use the federal E-Verify system. Everyone is wondering how this reflects on a future ruling as to Arizona’s immigration law which was struck down in a decision by both the Arizona District Court and...

I have enjoyed chronicling the many not too big to fail boycotts which have taken place in the past 18 months that I’ve been blogging, including (but not limited to): California, Utah, and Mormons in general because of Prop 8 Connecticut because of Joe Lieberman...

Based on reports of the hearing before the federal District Court Judge yesterday, it appears that the provision of the Arizona immigration law requiring law enforcement to verify immigration status is likely to survive, while other aspects creating independent state criminal sanctions will not. This...

The State of Arizona has filed its opposition to the lawsuit filed by the Department of Justice seeking an injunction preventing Arizona S.B. 1070 from taking effect on July 29. The hearing on the motion for preliminary injunction is set for July 22 at 1:30...

There has been quite a buzz regarding the failure of the Obama administration to challenge a 2008 Rhode Island Executive Order which accomplished much of what Arizona seeks to accomplish through S.B. 1070. The signing statement of the Governor, as well as the Order itself,...

A bill introduced by Democratic Deputy Majority Leader Peter Palumbo in the Rhode Island House of Representatives, similar to the Arizona immigration law, will not be permitted to go to a committee hearing, much less a vote: House Speaker Gordon D. Fox decided Monday that...

A Democratic state legislator in Rhode Island has filed a bill similar to the immigration law recently enacted in Arizona. As reported by The Providence Journal: State Rep. Peter Palumbo, D-District 16, Cranston, has filed a bill that largely copies a controversial Arizona law considered...

Also known as killing two birds with one stone. We get to apologize to and beg forgiveness from China for the sin of Arizona seeking to enforce the U.S. immigration laws, thus satisfying the 11th Commandment, “thou shall apologize profusely.” And, as the twofer, we...

One of the arguments raised against the Arizona immigration law (in addition to it being the modern incarnation of Nazism) was that states had no authority under the U.S. Constitution to conduct their own immigration policies. So I presume we will hear howls of constitutional...

There is a fundamental disconnect in the arguments being mounted against the Arizona immigration law. What many of the critics want to say, but do not, is that they view all immigration laws as inherently racist because most illegal immigrants are non-white. There are some...

The self-delusion that yesterday’s affirmation of Obamacare’s mandate under the taxing power of Congress was a conservative victory continues in full force today.  (See links and quotes at HotAir and Instapundit) Judicial restraint now means ignoring the will of Congress as to the purposes and...

There are several really important Supreme Court decisions to be handed down tomorrow at 10 a.m., Monday at 10 a.m., or next Thursday at 10 a.m. ScotusBlog has a “plain English” summary of the remaining cases, and almost all have huge legal implications (forced union contributions...
