That's correct, folks. One way or the other, Arizona will get what it needs, because illegal border crossers are a hot topic.

Let's not forget that he federal government can be sued as well, for failing to secure its borders - as everyone knows it doesn't.

Note: if the feds can continue to disregard what a court says about moratoriums on the gulf oil industry, then Arizona can continue to take its fight all the way to the Supreme Court.

Well put. The feds do what the h**l they want. I have been as dumb as every one for a long time......I thought they worked for us.
Now a lot of us know better.

It seems like only academic liberals, the media, and the latino minority want the law blocked.

Until 2042, or whenever the majority becomes a minority, the folks in the majority want immigration laws enforced.

Perhaps blowbama ought to heed the majority (black and white) that elected him and not the minority of illegals.

Arizona AG Terry Goddard's Statement on 1070 Ruling
07/28/2010

"Jan Brewer played politics with immigration, and she lost.

Rather than providing the leadership Arizona needs to solve the immigration problem, Jan Brewer signed a bill she could not defend in court which has led to boycotts, jeopardized our tourism industry and polarized our state.

It is time to look beyond election year grandstanding and begin to repair the damage to Arizona's image and economy.

Perhaps now we in Arizona can focus on effective steps to fight border crime and keep our families safe. Now we can focus on steps, such as the ones I have been taking, to go after border crime and cut off the cash that flows to organized criminal cartels that smuggle thousands into the U.S.

Now, we should start making smart decisions about immigration - beyond sound bites, fear mongering and political stunts."

BRAVO Gov. Jan Brewer, for vowing not to back down. The decision you have made is toughed, but the right one. Honest, hard working Americans are all behind you throughout the United States. It's a lot easier to be the nice person as Judge Susan Bolton chooses to be portrayed ... right, wrong or indifference. The Gov of Arizona, Gov Brewer has set a precedence that will eventually be embrace by every States. AMERICA, let us all focus and embrace the example set by the Gov. of Arizona for her courageous decision in getting illegal aliens out of her State. Let us all embrace and support her in getting this law pass then, let us all get on our local officials and govenors to pass the same law in our States. Only then will America be free from all the illegal immigrants that accounts for all the wasted funds that each States should be spending on it's citizens, the tax paying citizens.

Terry Goddard is a coward of the ultimate degree. Brewer dropped him like a rock and went with people who care about Arizona. Arizona will continue its fight all the way to Supreme Court, and America is in agreement.

Brewer is backing down.

The other day she was going to appeal to the top. Now she is going to see if she can rewrite the failed law to keep it from being knocked down again. The courts, however, are not fooled. It's like the school prayer law that became the school silent prayer law that became the school moment of silence law, all of which were knocked down because they were obviously trying to do what had been ruled against in the first place.

Perhaps Ms. Brewer would be better advised to actually do the work of the state instead of wasting time and money with this sort of fluff.

Gov. Brewer is doing her job, laojim. Are you a quitter? Sounds like you are.Are you trying to give advice to Gov. Brewer? Let me remind you that Az. is a part of the US and we're not quitters.

When you are wrong you should quit. It is the prerogative of the federal government to set immigration policy, not the several states. If you want something done don't bother a non elected governor, have a chat with McCain or Kyle or one of the reps.

Brewer does more work for Arizona than most governors ever will do.

Those of you who are pro-illegals and anti-prayer need to move to Cuba or Russia. They'll be happy to have all of you anti-American traitors.

If you plan to stay, then read and stand behind the Constitution of the country you live in.

As far as I am concerned, I will not be voting for Terri Goddard. He does not appear to be for the majority of citizens of Arizona.

Please the Feds have done nothing for Arizona. The Feds refuse to secure the borders. Why do you think Arizona has at least 500 thousand illegals? As for the Government, she is standing up for the people (legal) people of Arizona. Most of the people in Arizona have had enough of the crime, killings (ie. Rancher in Southern AZ) and so on and so on. As for McCain, he is gone - mark my words he will not be elected again. Those Demo's who stand with Obama will not be elected. Come August 24th,(voting) some changes are coming.

Oh, that's rich. I haven't heard that one for decades. Since I approve of the lawfully appointed judge's ruling on the improperly passed law in which the unelecdted governor and a hand full of radical rightists attempted to usurp the constitutional authority of the federal government it appears that I am the true conservative and you a frustrated and ill educated ultra right subversive. You should get out the nation of those us who actually respect the constitution before we round you up and lock you away while we decide where to deport you, if anyone will accept you. Bye.

United we stand; divided we fall!! Let us all get behind the Governor of Arizona and supprt her, and the States of Arizona in realizing the law to oust all illegal aliens from this country. It is certain other States will follow her courage examples in getting rid of unwanted aliens from this country.

If anything should change on the Immigration Law in the State of Arizona and any states, it should be to strengthen and make it striter for illegal aliens to get employment or rent a place to live. Those who hire illegal aliens and those who rent a place to illegal aliens should be severely fine. In addition, Police and other law enforcement officers should also check traffic offenders if they are illegal alien. My point is, to make it hard and difficult for illegal aliens to find jobs or rent a house.

One of the maxims of the the law is Qui Bono, who benefits? If you look at the current situation you see who benefits. Business owners and managers benefit because they get cheap labor. Landlords and property owners benefit because demand keeps their prices up. Many people benefit from having a large pool of exploitable workers, customers, and renters. Some people do not benefit, like people looking for a job that pays well. When you look at who tends to have access to and who has the ear of the elected officials you see that it is those who tend to benefit from the presence of the undocumented migrants. It is clear, therefore, that the undocumented migrants are likely to not be run out of the country by those who are or who are associated with the folks who will lose if all the migrants go home. I mean the pols and the folks that they meet at the country club, the yacht club, and other such places.

So leave the poor immigrants alone and go after the people who are inviting them and enabling them to stay. Go after the shop owner. Go after the landlords. If they won't help in your desire to rid the nation of immigrants then you might as well give up.
