    U.S. Chamber Takes Arizona Immigration Case to U.S. Supreme Court

    The U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s National Chamber Litigation Center (NCLC) is urging the U.S. Supreme Court to take up its case challenging the constitutionality of the employment provisions of a controversial Arizona immigration law. The case is Chamber of Commerce, et al. v. Candelaria, et al.

    The Anti-US Chamber of Commerce is EVIL. They are EVIL. So help me God if they win this.............

    The states HAVE to pass immigration enforcement laws because the traitorous Federal government is failing in its constitutional obligation to do so!!!!

    More proof the anti-US C of C has NO interest in smaller Federal government, no interest in state's rights, in liberty or freedom, no interest in what is good for this country. This is without question indisputable proof that they are ONLY interested in cheap labor for globalists and big business at any price to this country.

    Who would have ever thought years ago that the US Chamber of Commerce would be in FAVOR of the destruction of the country that allowed their businesses the opportunity to succeed in the first place????!!!!

    They are as traitorous to this country as our public officials.

    The Supreme Court should just refuse to hear it and consider it settled by the lower court ruling. This is not a Constitutional issue.

    Only high court can bring clarity on sanctions
    Aug. 3, 2009 12:00 AM
    The Arizona Republic

    For the sake of clarity, the U.S. Supreme Court ought to hear the case against Arizona's employer-sanctions law.

    This law, which has never been used to prosecute an employer, was always more about making a statement than making good public policy.

    It is a local Band-Aid on a national hemorrhage.

    But due to widespread frustration over the failure of Congress to enact comprehensive immigration reform, Arizona's law has been copied across the country.

    That's a big problem, according to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and a group of business, labor and civil-rights groups that want the Supreme Court to intervene.

    In its court filing, this unusual partnership says at least 150 bills aimed at businesses that hire the undocumented were introduced in the first three months of this year.

    Forty such bills have been enacted since Arizona's landmark law passed in 2007.

    This "cacophony" of state immigration laws undermines federal authority, the court filing says.

    It also creates chaos for employers, who should not have to deal with dozens of different - and possibly conflicting - immigration employment-verification standards.

    Businesses do not thrive on that kind of uncertainty.

    Let us be clear: We support changes to the federal immigration laws that establish tough enforceable sanctions against employers who hire undocumented workers.

    This is critical to the success of comprehensive immigration reform. Enforcing federal employer sanctions is essential to turn off the jobs magnet and gain control of the border. Employer sanctions are also key to the success of an orderly guest-worker program.

    But immigration is a federal matter and determining employment eligibility and verifying immigration status should be part of a uniform system for the nation. Clearly, that was the intent of Congress in the 1986 Immigration Reform and Control Act, which precluded state and local imposition of penalties for hiring practices. The law does, however, allow states to have their own "licensing" rules.

    Because Arizona's employer-sanctions law penalizes companies through their licenses, both federal district court and the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals allowed it to slip through that loophole. However, the Supreme Court precedent that was, in part, the basis for these decisions, dates to 1976. Things have changed.

    There are important national issues at stake here.

    The Supreme Court should hear this case and help resolve them.

    Both of these articles just go to show you how desperate the OBL and Chamber of Commerce have become. Oh how the special interest groups loose their ability to jerk the strings of politicians, who have started listening to the voting pubilic instead of a small group of people out for themselves and not the greater good of the public. It's really quite funny watching them scurry around like varmints. It's like they are scratching on a sealed glass jar trying to get at what is locked away inside. They can see it, but they can't have it.

    This is so pathetic, the COC is in the press crying for the SCOTUS to hear their case. Whinning like spoiled brats, give it to me! We deserve it. It's mine. WAAAAAAAAAAA!
