Sexiest and I thank you Greta your state getting 36 -- -- the federal government ain't the end I don't think that.
Very disappointed frankly surprised.
I didn't see this ruling coming.
Proportions of the law that I thought might be a -- but not the major.
Part of it frankly after looking at the court's decision I'm very disappointed in the reasoning of the judge because I don't think it really.
-- -- -- -- They either to instantly -- his -- of the league announces but the others but the big picture mean you know overwhelmingly the people of your state.
Support SB 1070 isn't -- Now they're being told by the federal government.
You may like it and it's your state but tough black Cadillac because a federal judge says certain portions of it simply don't because we accounts -- department.
Well you can look at it politically that way I look at it legally from the standpoint of how we're going to be able to craft a law in the future to deal with this problem in effect -- the judge -- there's there's nothing -- -- can do.
To enhance federal law enforcement in this area.
Federal government preempt the area of immigration.
And even if all you're doing is simply adding to the burden of the government in verifying the status of people.
With the federal colts.
That's undue burden on the government make -- long history on our enemies.
-- begin in the entries memory -- -- is that the reason that -- state did this to begin with designers -- at least we thought it looked.
Is because you thought that the federal government be ineffective or inattentive to be illegal immigration problems facing north state.
So then you decide act statute passed.
And then a federal government comes in and says.
It statute well.
But up basically got bought out thank you it must make it clear -- in the US congress state legislature passed the law the -- -- on the sign that.
But I have some sympathy with both the state legislators who were trying to respond to their constituents.
As well as the constituents themselves like -- lot from say why don't you guys -- get -- act together.
And enforce the -- at the border and you're not gonna do it that -- -- state legislators to do that.
They -- it it -- of that legislation.
-- on Tuesday and hit -- perfect.
No obviously this was written by the state legislature and signed by the governor.
And no I don't think it was perfect but I also don't think it was unconstitutional.
And if the judge is saying that any law that estate taxes that adds at all to the burden of the federal government.
In enforcing a congressional act is going to be unconstitutional.
I don't know what state can.
And obviously it puts even more emphasis on the ten point plan that -- McCain and I have.
To get control of the border which even more pressure on the congress to make whatever available -- whatever -- need to be made available to enforce the law.
And for the attorney general and the Department of Homeland Security be more.
Committed I guess to do the things that we know can secure the border no dispute about.
Let me just frustration I have a lot out of mart that out right Skype -- viewers and I spent the second that summons from your own statements that basically I don't get it.
We have to Sanctuary Cities.
In Arizona where the feds won't enforce the law then the feds take.
His tax dollars to fight Arizona's attempt to deal with the problem.
And he's very BCA frustrates if it you know what what -- do -- -- what is going to happen here because the tax dollars are being used against him so he says.
And I think he's right this was not a good use of taxpayer dollars in my view for a -- there were seven of the lawsuits.
Pending at the government didn't have to filed suit too by the way one -- it appears to be an uphill.
Here's the part that deals with the so called Sanctuary Cities so that a citizen of errors on the would be able to.
Attempt to get cities to enforce the law whatever it might be.
But that's a small consolation given the bulk of -- of the law was declared unconstitutional and -- get what I think it means is that if the state of Arizona.
Let's say were to pass a law that says that you can't get state welfare benefits.
If you're not an.
An American citizen -- their work some department in Arizona had to check the immigration status of people that that could be declared unconstitutional.
As federally preempted and I don't think that argument would -- -- I really don't understand.
How the judge's ruling about.
Adding a burden to the federal government.
Can be the basis -- I'm doing the statute on preemption.
Let you know it's caught in the weeds fighting about this action on issues -- the the probably is is that Arizona wants its borders more secure.
And most people believe that we need a standard national immigration policy whatever it is so while the federal government is suing the state.
We're not dealing with any of these problems -- not.
I guess -- -- -- -- -- that there are this war now being done about borders but we're not dealing with the with the big picture we're not moving forward.
If it's not enough it's true that they have added resources.
But that doesn't answer the question is -- enough.
And secondly there are still some policy decisions have to be made such as.
Implementing operation streamline.
-- all sections of the border not just on a few operation streamline which people in jail when they -- repeatedly.
And it's a great deterrent what you put people in jail -- to -- across in that area.
And so a combination of those policy changes and some additional resources.
800 Border Patrol agents -- the Tucson sector that's what the chief says he needs that are -- -- surveillance equipment.
A few things here in there and we could gain operational control of the border.
That's what should happen we shouldn't have to have state launcher right.
Do you think that the attorneys -- I don't is that it's not that the Justice Department today is on another work assignment but the attorney don't know and the president sort of celebrating his decision.
Party think they're seeing this sister like you know one step forward in trying to figure out what to do but immigration they they dedicated to solving this problem.
-- they celebrated victory over -- state.
You'll have to ask him my guess is they're celebrating a victory and I don't think it's much quicker to celebrate when the real.
Point here is that the federal government is not doing its job and other state of -- -- can be precluded from trying to do everything it can to fill in the difference.
So not what.
This stated that would you recommend as it.
That represented the state.
Would you recommend going to the ninth circuit and -- -- witnessed shortly they need to appeal the case still good luck in the ninth circuit but still I I think the decision was not sound an airport could be overturned.
I think you're the federal level to things need to be done one we have to increase -- efforts to try to get the resources to the border and change the policies that we can gain operation.
-- we won't need state laws like this.
And secondly I think maybe we need some kind of -- federal.
Sense of the congress that instruct judges and the executive branch.
But when we pass a law like the immigration.
I NA which is the immigration -- the controls here.
We -- it to be enforced.
And that the federal government cannot through the executive branch attorney -- say.
Well I choose not to enforce some of its provisions because it might make a foreign country unhappy that was one of their arguments.
That they can refuse to enforce the law totally.
-- to do so would impinge on international.
I think that's wrong and if congress -- look we passed a law we expected to be enforced and we don't care what the government Mexico things.
Executive branch would be more forceful.
In enforcing the law that we've given to -- -- says it's just a bump in the road.
Can you describe it so lightly or do you think it's something.
Well she has an optimistic look on at -- all of us.
Follow her lead here and say that that we hope that we can reverse this somehow either through more federal action to enforce along the border.
Or by having the judge's decision -- of the state of -- only -- -- check out thank you say thank you.
