For Immediate Release
Association Leader Reacts Negatively to SCOTUS Immigration Ruling
Philadelphia, PA (June 25, 2012) -- Teri Adams, President of the Independence Hall Tea Party Association, voiced major objections over today's US Supreme Court ruling on Immigration and, at the same time, announced a Thursday Press Conference (11 AM) on Independence Mall, 5th and Market Streets, to discuss the court's ruling on the both the Arizona Law and ObamaCare.
"While we are still analyzing the full impact of the US Supreme Court's ruling on Arizona's immigration law, also known as SB 1070, we are very disappointed by the court's decision striking down three of the law's four provisions."
"The provision which was upheld, allowing police officers to check the immigration status during routine stops, could be easily overturned in the near future as the court is expected to revisit the issue in subsequent legal challenges."
Ms. Adams noted that, according to recent national polls, nearly 60% of Americans approved of the Arizona law.
"At the heart of today's decision is the misguided notion that only the Federal government has the right pass and enforce laws pertaining to illegal immigration simply because the US Constitution grants the Federal government jurisdiction over the 'naturalization' process," Ms. Adams said.
"Would the court use the same logic in regards to other illegal activity--such as murder and theft--which can also fall under the pervue of the Federal Government under the US Constitution?
"Justice Anton Scalia pointed out that since SB 1070 was not in conflict with Federal law, the state of Arizona, being a sovereign entity, has every right to pass and enforce laws that complement--not conflict with--Federal law.
"And when Federal Immigration Laws are not being enforced in the various states, shouldn't those states then have the right to do what the Federal government--and in this case the Obama Administration--is refusing to do?"
