These people that stop the wishes of the American taxpayers are nothing but modern day Benedict Arnolds.

When lawyers and judges can override the will of the people you no longer have a democracy. We have far too many employees in the legal profession who create too many legal problems in order to keep their ranks working. Should be like the old days when the only reason you needed a lawyer was if you got into serious trouble. Now they've made it so you need a lawyer for almost everything. I'm sure the judge who made this decision was happy to appease his fellow bar members with the prospect of exorbitant legal fees while arguing this issue. Don't look for them to come to a timely decision because that would deminish their legal fees. We are now at the mercy of politicians,judges and lawyers, most all of them being bar members. Legal fees are the biggest waste of money I can think of in this country. Exactly what is the finished product?

This federal judge needs to be hung with the rest of the traitors to the US. Time for these money hungry lawyers to start lawsuits against all traitors to the US. Start at this judge.

It is a local issue when you have 50 people living in 1 family dwellings who are urinating on lawns and causing the neighborhood to become slum-like. It is also local when the local taxpayers are funding the education of the illegal's children and paying for other services as well.

yeah, yeah, immigration is a federal issue, until the feds do something,then it's a local issue like in California and other places that decide they are sanctuaries. Ridiculous.

Illegals and thier supporters only side with the laws they want. I guess they've never heard of local city ordinances.

Wish what you want to wish...illegal or not...Hispanics are here to stay..get used to it and in the meantime all these stupid laws that are being enacted all over the place will be put on hold or not allowed to go into force because they themselves are illegal...I just love it...

And while the whole bunch of you are just pushing to stop the reform...thousands more are crossing the border or overstaying their tourist visas...12 million now...50 million when you all decide what the hell to do about it....what a joke

Who believes that the troll Latinos NOW is not a latino?

Legal Hispanic,Asian or Europeans are here to stay too, so get over it.(by the way, you do know we out number you for the next 50 years,no matter how the government plays it.

We've already decided what to do about it. So don't worry your little head any longer.

Hey, everyone knows that our own GOVERNMENT is lawless right now. They just have the money to defend themselves.

So what happens if we don't listen to these judges edicts? Are you going to jail a whole town?

Good question, bears thought, doesn't it.

Perhaps the judge needs to be spoken to by the citizens?.

All legal immigrants and citizens are watching this game the powers that be are playing. We are a very, very large group.
