The state of Alabama has lost its collective mind. Apparently the state of Alabama was under the mistaken impression that the 10th Amendment is actually part of the U.S. Constitution. Luckily, Obama’s DOJ headed by Eric Holder is quick to pounce on the misguided state that had the gall to enact laws that upheld federal immigration laws.
For instance, Alabama passed a law making illegal immigration a state crime in 2011. Of course, illegally immigrating to the United States is a federal offense. Alabama also made it illegal to work in the state without proper documentation. The law forbid renting a residence to an illegal immigrant, forbade non citizens from going to public school and allowed police to detain those suspected of being in the country illegally.
So the question is not whether or not the state of Alabama should be forced by the federal government to enact laws that are replicas of the heretofore UNENFORCED federal immigration laws, but whether or not Alabama is blocking the “constitutional rights” of illegal children to attend school.
Alabama lost the battle leaving the Obama DOJ free to attack other states with immigration control laws in collusion with the ACLU and the secret pro illegal immigrant watchdog group, the National Origin Working Group.
