US Supreme Court to look at state immigration lawsThe U.S. Supreme Court agreed Monday to rule on a politically charged law in Arizona targeting illegal immigrants.
The immigration case stems from the Obama administration's furious legal fight against a patchwork of state laws aimed at stopping illegal immigration.
Arizona and other states say the federal government is not doing enough to address illegal immigration and that states on the border with Mexico, including Arizona, are suffering disproportionately.
The administration of President Barack Obama argues that regulating immigration is the job of the federal government, not states. Similar laws in Alabama, South Carolina and Utah also are facing administration lawsuits. Private groups are suing over immigration measures adopted in Georgia and Indiana.

The federal government has continued to fail at protecting the states. The federal government is only interested in expanding its power. The state has a right to protect itself and the federal government should not infringe on that right.

I'm about tired of hearing about the illegal immigration law here in AL.
All the posturing and politicking goes on, but nobody thinks to point out the fact that by definition, illegals are here ILLEGALLY.
