I'm about fed up with Teabaggers and righties who constantly bark about the Constitution, but can't see anything wrong with the turd of a law Arizona just passed.
Anyone wanting a brilliant and concise explanation about why the Arizona immigration legislation is unconstitutional should listen to the last seven minutes of this podcast. Kevin Johnson, Dean, UC Davis School of Law, and a professor of immigration law, explains why the legislation is headed right down the same path as California's Proposition 187.
It's a Supremacy Clause, thing, baby.
In a nutshell, the Supremacy Clause says you can't have a state regulating and enforcing something that's covered by federal legislation.
CODE RED NEWS ALERT: Immigration law is under the exclusive jurisdiction of the federal government.
Then there's the little darlings over in Oklahoma, with a new abortion bill that mandates a woman to undergo a medical procedure against her will. Predictably, your righties have no problem with that.
But forcing medical procedures on women isn't the only wonderful thing in this bit of genius legislation. Per CNN, "The other measure prohibits pregnant women and their families from seeking legal damages if physicians "knowingly and negligently" withhold key information or provide inaccurate information about their pregnancies."
Fortunately for a bunch of lawyers, this too shall go right down the shitter. Don't believe me? These Okie clowns did the same damn thing two years ago, passing, vetoing, and repassing unconstitutional abortion legislation, which was promptly struck down.
Maybe the righties' next law will mandate all women wear burkas.
Nah, that would make it too hard to tell whether we we have brown skin or not.
