The Supremes threw out most of Arizona's law and the federal government is thumbing its nose at state sovereignty by stating up front that they have little or no intention of enforcing the laws on the books regarding immigration. And then they said that they were going to set up a hot line for illegals to call in to the DOJ for them to report if their civil rights were violated by Arizona police. Time for a little insurrection? What would happen if folks bought a disposable phone and then happened to call the DOJ and with a fake Mexican accent, reported made up stuff about civil rights violations by the Arizona police? If one or two people did it, it would be annoying. If dozens did it, it would be an interference with Arizona law.

But if hundreds of folks were to do it, it would hamstring the DOJs efforts to intrude on state sovereignty, because they would be spending copious man-hours uselessly chasing false reports. It would render this program to step on Arizona an ineffectual waste of time.

President Barack Obama hailed the Supreme Court's 5-3 decision Monday that struck down most of Arizona's 2010 immigration law. In a statement released by the White House, however, the president said that he remains "concerned about the practical impact of the remaining provision of the Arizona law that requires local law enforcement officials to check the immigration status of anyone they even suspect to be here illegally."

All eight voting members of the Supreme Court upheld this provision, which requires that Arizona cops try to determine the immigration status of individuals who have been stopped for reasons not involving immigration.
