IT IS AN ARIZONA DRIVER LICENSE AND ARIZONA SETS THE RULES ON WHO GETS ONE NOT THE COURTS NOT THE FEDS
We apparently are living in a Judacracy (out of control courts, lawyers with robes). It is an Arizona driver’s license, not a federal driver’s license. Judge it is a violation of the Constitution, federal law and Arizona law to give them driver’s licenses. Yet, the liberal Judges and this corrupt President continue to dismantle the Constitution and the rule of law. It also is a huge national security issue as these illegal aliens have NO verifiable identification … we have no idea who most or many of are or when they came. It is still illegal under the law, both Arizona and federal. Arizona must take a stand against the overreach of the courts and the federal government. WE ARE A SOVEREIGN STATE!!!
I wrote the law in 1996 to prevent folks without verifiable ID and those in this country illegally from getting driver’s license or state issued ID that allow them to move around without fear of their illegal status, as almost anyone who walked in with a name on a piece of paper could get a license. We required everyone to produce “verifiable ID” and be “legally” in the country to get state issued ID. They have no automatic right to ID. It was wrong then; it is wrong now.
The ACLU has never missed a chance to promote their lawless and Godless agenda. Of course they are on the side of “illegal” aliens, and aborting babies to harvest parts for sell, against traditional marriage between a man and a woman and they love law breakers of law keepers and citizens.
Randy Parraz and Citizens United are organized for this very purpose: to support law breakers and attack anyone who stands firm for the rule of law or the Constitution.
The Governor must refuse to adhere to this illegal order that violates Arizona law and the state’s sovereign power. To issue them a driver’s license is to violate the law. When do we stand up to UnConstitutional Executive Orders, or UnConstitutional renderings of the courts? When? Arizona just passed Prop. 122 that said enough is enough when the feds overstep their “limited and enumerated powers” given them by the states in the Constitution written by the sovereign states that reserved all other powers to the states and We the People.
Dreamers are still illegal aliens. Under this Dictator-in-Chief they do not have to prove they came here as a child, they just need to declare they are a dreamer. They could be a gang member, a member of a drug cartel, a child molester or just taking an illegal worker, taken an American’s job, and of course the cost of $9,000 dollar a year for K-12 education at the expense of taxpaying citizens.
Arizona has the right to determine who gets driver’s licenses, just like they decide when citizens lose their right to drive through certain illegal activities. We have thousands of “citizens” denied the right to drive for all kinds of reasons, as it is considered a privilege, not an inherent right — at most a conditional right.
Justice Scalia of the U.S. Supreme court makes it clear: “It is beyond question that a State may make a violation of federal law a violation of state law as well.”
Scalia is scathing in his denunciation of the majority on these issues: “But to say, as the Court does, that Arizona contradicts federal law by enforcing applications of [federal law] that the President declines to enforce boggles the mind….”
“What I do fear ¬ and what Arizona and the States that support it fear – is that ‘federal policies’ of non-enforcement will leave the States helpless before those evil effects of illegal immigration that the Court’s opinion dutifully recites in its prologue but leaves unremedied in its disposition.”
Scalia’s scorn for the ignorance of the majority condenses itself into a question about the Constitutional Convention in 1787: “Would the States conceivably have entered into the Union if the Constitution itself contained the Court’s holding?”
Justice Scalia’s response: “The delegates to the Grand Convention would have rushed to the exits.”
Scalia exposes the main obstacle the states face in their struggle to contain illegal immigration and he raises the question that needs to be faced by everyone who cares about our freedom: “Are the sovereign States at the mercy of the Federal Executive’s refusal to enforce the Nation’s immigration laws?”
We confer certain limited powers on government for the purpose of maintaining an orderly society, not for the purpose of stealing our freedom. The Founders recognized the dangers of an all-powerful, overbearing federal government. They did not leave the states or individual citizens at the mercy of the Executive Branch or the Courts.
What is our remedy? Nullification? Prop. 122? The Courts? Article 1 Sec. 10 of the Constitution; the States inherent authority to enforce the law, secure our borders? Nullification of the Courts actions, that will never fix the problem; perhaps it is a part of the Constitution itself that our Founding Fathers through “divine” inspiration put into that divinely inspired document and that is ARTICLE V.
We have failed to do our job, we have allowed Congress, the White House and the Courts to ignore We The People.
Now is the time. If not now, when? If not us, who? We owe it to those who have sacrificed much, and some have who have given all for these freedoms. We owe it to our children and grandchildren and all freedom loving patriots.
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH
Is life so dear or peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? We are not weak if we make a proper use of those means which the God of Nature has placed in our power… the battle, sir, is not to the strong alone it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave…Give me liberty or give me death.
