District Judge Charles Breyer blocks DHS no-match letters (ACLU, CofC, AFL-CIO)

Spencer Hsu of the Washington Post offers "Judge Bars Bush Crackdown on Illegal Workers" (link):
A federal judge barred the Bush administration today from launching a planned crackdown on U.S. firms that hire illegal immigrants, warning of the plan's potentially "staggering" impact on law-abiding workers and companies.

Issuing a firm rebuke of the White House, U.S. District Judge Charles R. Breyer of San Francisco granted a preliminary injunction against the government's plan to pressure employers to fire up to 8.7 million workers with suspect Social Security numbers starting this fall.

...Breyer said the plaintiffs, an unusual coalition that included the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the AFL-CIO and the American Civil Liberties Union, had raised such serious questions about the plan to mail Social Security "no-match" letters to 140,000 U.S. employers that it should be blocked from proceeding.
It's not that "unusual": such groups have been allied in their support for illegal activity for a long time. Note of course that this is being portrayed as a defeat for Bush, when he, the WaPo, and those who brought the suit are on the same side.
..."The government's proposal to disseminate no-match letters affecting more than eight million workers will, under the mandated time line, result in the termination of employment to lawfully employed workers," the judge wrote. "Moreover the threat of criminal prosecution . . . reflects a major change in DHS [Department of Homeland Security] policy."
The previous "policy" was to refuse to enforce the laws on the books. When they make a half-hearted attempt at enforcing the laws, corrupt businesses and far-left "civil rights" groups - together with a Clinton-appointed judge (fjc.gov/servlet/tGetInfo?jid=2719) - can't even let that happen. This will apparently be appealed, but if you'd like to do something more effective in the meantime, I suggest discrediting those who support illegal immigration.


You got that right....that BUSH is on the same side as those traitorous slimebags!!! I would bet money that he conferred with lawyers to insure that he would not be able to initiate this plan.So it remains business as usual as they all together push forward for their North American Union. I have HAD IT and am ready to fight these SOBS in the street I am so freakin mad!!!

Mary, you won't be lacking for company.

so now illegals can use our social security numbers, that's just great! american judges aiding and abetting criminal welfare illegals who are over running our country and kill an estimated 3-4 thousand americans every year! we will need to take to the streets and the time is now!!! dan bergstrom... seattle, wa...

Let's make sure all the dictators in black robes go up against the wall first.

I just had to replace one of my credit cards due to a concern that somebody was using my identity illegally.

Will any member of Congress please offer an impeachment resolution for any Federal Judge in San Francisco? It doesn't matter who. How long are you guys going to let judges run this country?

This Judge should not be impeached..he should be tried for Treason!!!
