ACLU, MALDEF, NILC sue over Arizona worker verification law

From this:
The Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund (MALDEF) joined the American Civil Liberties Union, the ACLU of Arizona, the law firm of Altshuler Berzon and the National Immigration Law Center (NILC) in filing a lawsuit in federal court today on behalf of Chicanos Por La Causa and Somos America challenging Arizona's new law ["Legal Arizona Workers Act", which uses the Basic Pilot Program] that threatens employers with permanent loss of business licenses based on invalid new state requirements.

..."Under federal law, participation in the Basic Pilot Program is voluntary. By requiring Arizona employers to use this program, the Legal Arizona Workers Act runs afoul of the Constitution and will subject all Arizona employees regardless of legal status - Latinos in particular - to potential discrimination based on their race, ethnicity, or national origin," said Kristina Campbell, Acting Los Angeles Regional Counsel and lead MALDEF attorney on the case...
They also claim that the BPP database has issues. I'm absolutely positive that that's all that MALDEF and the ACLU - two groups with the same indirect link to the Mexican government - are concerned about. I'm absolutely positive that they aren't just far-left, reflexive supporters of illegal immigration.

To those people of good will who think all we have to do is apply the law equally to all...think again. The ACLU etal. will still make their silly "most of the criminals are Latinos thus the law is unconstitutional" argument. And here's the key: no matter how ridiculous the reasoning, the dictators in black robes will happily usurp the will of the people and agree with the ACLU. We are very quickly approaching a reckoning, one way or another. Will we watch these unelected ideologues dictate policy to us, or will we demand they operate as the constitution describes?
