Supreme Court upholds 2007 Arizona immigration enforcement law; eVerify; losing: US Chamber, DOJ, Berman, NCLR, ADL, SPLC, AILA, SEIU, LULAC - 05/26/11

In a major victory for states that want to reduce illegal immigration, the US Supreme Court has upheld Arizona's 2007 "Legal Arizona Workers Act" employer enforcement law that requires the use of eVerify and that allows Arizona to pull the business licenses of companies that knowingly hire illegal aliens. Note that the 2007 law and the decision have no relation to Arizona's more recent immigration law. A Los Angeles Times article is here, and links to legal documents are here. Sonia Sotomayor voted in dissent; see her name's link. Those who opposed Arizona's law in court and who lost today...

City ordinance on day laborers soliciting work is constitutional: appeals court - 06/10/10

From this: A federal appeals court on Wednesday upheld the city of Redondo Beach's ordinance allowing for the arrest of day laborers who approach automobiles soliciting work. A divided three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals reversed a lower-court decision. The appeals court said the city's ordinance, modeled after a Phoenix law upheld by the same court, was a reasonable response to traffic problems that officials said day laborers soliciting work caused at two city intersections. The 2-1 majority noted that Redondo Beach allowed the day laborers an alternative forum to...

Far-left working to block Napolitano's "Secure Communities" program - 04/28/10

The "Secure Communities" program from the Department of Homeland Security is Janet Napolitano's kinder, gentler alternative to the 287g program. That's not good enough for the far-left (link). Yesterday they released the following: [T]he National Day Laborer Organizing Network (NDLON), the Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR) and the Immigration Justice Clinic of the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law (of Yeshiva University) filed a lawsuit demanding records related to the little-known United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency (ICE) "Secure Communities" program that further...

USA Today: Growing number of Americans among day laborers - 12/01/09

Emily Bazar of USA Today offers "Unemployed U.S.-born workers seek day-labor jobs" (link): Growing ranks of U.S. citizens are heading to street corners and home improvement store parking lots to find day-labor work usually done by illegal immigrants. The trend is most pronounced in regions where hot construction markets have collapsed, says Abel Valenzuela Jr., a professor of urban planning at the University of California-Los Angeles.

National Latino Congreso: "No Human Being is Illegal", Nativo Lopez, Gil Cedillo, Kucinich, Cuban Five, Fairness Doctrine, and more! - 10/07/07

The 2nd annual "National Latino Congreso" - a meeting of hundreds of "Latino organizational leaders, elected officials, and activists at all levels" is currently underway in Los Angeles (latinocongreso.org). Yesterday, Anna Gorman of the Los Angeles Times offered a whitewashed report here. Let's take a look at the groups involved and some of the loony resolutions that were passed. Expect the MSM coverage to be in line with Gorman's report: it will completely cover for far-left racial demagogues and avoid mentioning the loony resolutions. Their "conveners' include: * League of United Latin...

Members of the National Day Laborer Organizing Network (NDLON) are currently protesting in front of KFI-AM Los Angeles, specifically relating to the immigration coverage offered by hosts John and Ken. They apparently have friends from the religious community with them, and they're trying to attach their pro-illegal immigration efforts to the civil rights struggles from the 60s. They chanted "KFI stop the hate" and held a moment of silence.
