But there is a real threat of "a patchwork of state and local immigration policies throughout the country," the feds' complaint states. This is not allowed under the Constitution any more than it would be for individual states to begin signing their own treaties with foreign governments or declaring war.

The possibility of that "patchwork" taking hold is just one reason Judge Bolton needs to enjoin SB 1070 before its enforcement begins on July 29 — kill the baby crocodile in the crib.

Add to this the irreparable harm that will be done when this law goes live and people are wrongfully arrested or profiled because of the color of their skin. Something we all know is bound to happen.

Federal Judge Susan R. Bolton, the woman who could stop SB 1070.

Chin believes that no matter what Bolton decides, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals will not let the law stand. If she enjoins and the injunction is appealed, Chin anticipates that the 9th Circuit will uphold the injunction, and if she rejects an injunction, the 9th Circuit will overturn the decision.

"High-speed preliminary injunction work is part of the diet of the federal courts," Chin related, meaning the 9th should get to it tout de suite.

So, assuming Bolton rules before July 29, I'm saying the U.S. cavalry charge will stop SB 1070. Still, Bolton should not dither. Too much rides on her acting quickly to enjoin. Otherwise the war over SB 1070 roils on.

GOD'S LEGAL BEAGLE

Some things you just cannot make up. Like a motion from the Almighty filed recently in district court on the U.S. Department of Justice's anti-SB 1070 lawsuit.

And by the Almighty, I mean, the Lord. Yahweh. Big Poppa. Whatever you want to call the guy with the long, white beard wearing sandals and a robe as the dudes with wings minister to him.

Actually, the rambling 63-page court document didn't come via thunderbolt. Rather, it was penned by the Almighty's messenger Divine Queen Mariette Do-Nguyen, proprietress of the Kingdom of Heaven, a.k.a. "The World Divine Government on Earth," which evidently is somewhere in San Diego.

Do-Nguyen introduces herself to the court, this way:

"I, Mariette Do-Nguyen, a legal immigrant from Vietnam during the evacuation of 1975, sponsored by the United States government, became a U.S. citizen in June 1982. I am the Almighty Eternal Creator's Messenger of Covenant, and founder and head of the Kingdom of Heaven in the earthly realm. Obeying the Almighty Eternal Creator's instructions, I act as His representative in the United States Federal Court, fill [sic] this Motion for Filling [sic] Third-Party Complaint, and seeking release." Later, she writes, "The Almighty Eternal Creator communicates directly with my divine soul through my dreams and His words."

She also notes, "I am acting pro se until further notice to the court, until someone on Earth comes forward to accept representation of the Almighty Eternal Creator in my place."

In other words, the Lord needs a lawyer. 'Til one steps up, Do-Nguyen, to borrow a phrase from The Blues Brothers, is on a mission from God.

Do-Nguyen has a Web site for the Kingdom of Heaven, a YouTube page, where she reads sermons in monotone before a camera, and Facebook and MySpace pages. On the latter, we learn that the Divine Queen is single, straight, a Capricorn, and does MySpace for networking and friends, who (for her) include Prince Charles, Sarah Palin, and Pope Benedict XVI.

The "Advocatess" is also the author of several books, including her latest, The Kingdom of Heaven Constitution. A scintillating read. Particularly if you're on Thorazine.

I should point out that Do-Nguyen's motion is in support of SB 1070. Seems she's ticked that she wasn't able to get her sister and her sister's family into the country, so the federal government needs to keep those Latino illegal aliens out. She says they're violating divine law, too.

The "Messenger of Covenant" details how the 9/11 terrorist attacks were revealed to her back in 1996. She says she warned two presidents and both houses of Congress, but no one listened to her. Can't imagine why not.

This Vietnamese Cassandra's motion, listed on the docket for U.S. vs. Arizona, as though it were any other amicus brief, also goes into some deeply strange detail about her supposed contacts with the FBI, the CIA, police from Ghana, and U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-California), among others.

Do-Nguyen alleges she's a victim of President George Walker Bush and his administration, which "illegally handed over nearly a billion dollars to grand robbers and scammers, who are terrorists."

She complains, "These terrorists attempted to murder me, a U.S. citizen who held genuine legal rights to her monies, and try to using [sic] my money to carry out waves of attacks on American soil."

There are also numerous exhibits filed with e-mails that make it seem like she might have fallen for one of those Nigerian bank scams, except this one seemed to be out of Ghana.

I'm just glad she's on the same team as Arizona Governor Jan Brewer, neo-Nazi-hugging state Senator Russell Pearce, and SS-wanna-be J.T. Ready. Do-Nguyen should consider moving to Sand Land from Cali. She'd fit right in.

Can anyone who is for SB 1070 stand up and say that you have never paid for the services of some one you know is illegal? Who do you think subsidizes our cost of living?People, let us realize that these politicians are playing us for fools on this issue. If businesses had no demand/market for illegal immigrants and did not hire them as bus boys etc would illegal immigrants be attracted to America? Second, we say these people stole our jobs... what jobs.. do we work as cleaners, constructions workers, busboys, maid etc??? No we do not... so what's the point. They are involved in crime, according to who? Why did Russell Pearce hire an undocumented worker in the first place??? These people are just trying to get by...People let us think critically and not emotionally/sentimentally about this issue...People think about

I don’t know what planet you live on but yes…I have done many of those jobs as have many of my friends. Especially as kids. That is what we did…kids jobs. Now they are illegal Mexican jobs. I ran a construction company and it got harder and harder to find none illegal help. I finally shut it down. I was not going to be a part of the dismantling of America. This country cannot take 6 billion people on entitlements. The math does not compute. How many illegal’s do you have living in your home? How many do you personally care for? NONE RIGHT. So how is it that you demand that everyone else pay for them?

You seriously need to watch this wonderful video by numbers America. Please share it with your friends: Gummballs http://www.youtube.com/watch?v...

SHOULD JUDGE SUSAN BOLTON HAVE HEARD THE ARIZONA IMMIGRATION LAW CASE? She should be arrested for hearing the case! http://www.thepostemail.com/20...

seriously?
seriously?

Rescue??? Are you kidding me??? Feds to rescue what? Feds as in Federales!! Wouldn't it be awesome if the US Government actually supported and backed the majority? Oh well. Dreams are dreams. In the mean time, please continue to bust your hump working and paying taxes to support your illegal neighbors' health care needs and cover damages done by illegal uninsured motorists. Sounds fair. Seriously, its not RACIAL, its ILLEGAL.

What are they going to rescue? Do you mean supporting an invasion of La Raza Reconquest's bent on the destruction of America? Or maybe you mean the protection of "Jack Pot" babies that are going to begin coming of age (21) soon that will be able to bring over millions more of IA to expand the "baby war" the Latino IA are waging? Or do you mean the millions of white liberals that are abusing the 14th amendment to legitimize a "race guilt" perpetrated by the La Raza? Or maybe you mean the protection of the illegal abuse of the social security trust fund to support IA with illegal entitlements that they are not entitled to? I do not understand your article. Please clarify? Illegal is not a Race and therefore cannot be discriminated against. Thank You.

It is time that the U. S. Government spend some money in the United States to keep out the illegals no matter what country they come from. Our borders have been way to easy to cross anywhere in the U.S. We are having horrible trouble with the illegals coming from Mexico and the taxpayers have to take care of them and their children. We have sent enough money out of this country to help others and it is time to keep the tax dollars HOME and take care of the citizens in the U.S. and make sure the illegals are sent home until they can come back in a legal manner, learn to speak english and go to work and pay taxes to take care of themselves. Our schools should not have to teach classes both in english and spanish. If they can't speak english they need to go back where they came from. IT IS TIME FOR OUR TAX DOLLARS BE SPENT TO TAKE CARE OF OUR OWN AND NOT OTHERS ALL THE TIME.

Please, this judge is a pathetic excuse for a POLITICIAN. BOUGHT AND PAID FOR BY THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION! How do you excuse a portion of a law? Does that mean we can also dismiss a part of the Constitution as well? Recall this FACIST PAID EXCUSE FOR A HUMAN. Make sure she has paid her student loans and any thing else legally off.

FACTS: Illegal is NOT a race, it is a status. You need proper documentation in EVERY OTHER COUNTRY on EARTH. If the AZ police determine that a white person from Russia is here illegally, then they are being deported too. One more thing...I would bet the author of this article choses NOT to house even ONE illegal in his home. You want to pay for it, then you are more than welcome to have them stay at your house. YOU pay for everything they need. Then you might have a leg to stand on, other wise it's just Liberal blather....

I agree with all of your comments so far. We shouldn't have to bend everything for any race that can not speak the predominant language, and we should definitely not have to pay for the fact that they can not support them selves financially. Not to isolate or anything but it's pure fact that poverty level Hispanics bear more children despite the fact that they are already on food stamps, government funded health insurance, and cash assistance. Why do we have to pay for that? Can you imagine what the state can do for it's self if that insane amount of money was not going to people who just can't keep their damn legs closed or use contraceptives? And as far as the deportation goes! It does not incriminate at all because the fact of the matter is that if you do not have a working visa, you can and will be deported and my co worker from England was a prime example of that. He didn't renew his working visa and on a civil traffic warrant was transported to Florence prison where deports go, and sent back to England. And this happened over a year and a half ago, before SB1070. Like I've said before, this is just another reason for extremists and ethnic groups to cry out racism but it's a bunch of bull shit and my friend from England is proof of that. He didn't complain a bit either, he knew it was his fault for not keeping up with his paper work.

Isn't it the Nativist contention that illegal aliens are all living off government benefits? So Stephen wouldn't have any costs at all under that argument. I liked the fact that America was different from other countries, in that you had freedom to travel without having to get permission from authorities.

Maybe we should be worried about those "White Russians" a little more with the recent spy scandal...

My New Mexico driver's license is truthful in every detail (okay, maybe the weight is a little off), but would not be accepted in Arizona under SB 1070. The effects of SB 1070 is not being debated here, it's what it does to Hispanic lawful residents that is troubling. Illegal "White Russians" won't be caught because they don't fit the profile.

I'm a Conservative, so don't call me a "liberal" with your Nativist notions...

I sure hope that the judge helps AZ work through this law. I agree that there are three parts of SB 1070 that should not hold up in court and it appears that she may not allow these three parts to go through. It also appears the bulk of the proposed law might go through. So just reword those three parts and get on with the passing. Thanks for leading the way AZ and at least seven of us other states are going to be moving right in behind you.

"...One pertinent example: SB 1070 makes it a crime for a lawfully present alien not to carry with him or her an alien-registration document. That person, picked up by local law enforcement, would likely be taken directly to jail..."

But United States Code 1304(e) that Section 3 of SB 1070 refers to is actually a now-defunct provision (the Alien Registration Act of 1940) that specifically does not regulate Legal Permanent Residents and valid visa holders. So, for instance, if an Arizona law enforcement officer asks my Legal Permanent Resident wife for her " Certificate of Alien Registration" she isn't going to be able to provide it. If she is then wrongly detained under SB 1070 we are going to sue.

Legal Permanent Residents only have to carry their Resident Card if they are 18 years or older. The penalty is a misdemeanor at the Federal level, something that SB 1070 is more harsh at, and creating the prospect of double-jeopardy. SB 1070 does not mimic current immigration law, but rather rewrites sections of it for usage only in the state of Arizona.

Scarier still is the aspect that an individual that has naturalized is not required to carry proof of their U.S. citizenship. My wife has an accent, and in about six months we will apply for her naturalization. Of course it is going to raise suspicion by an officer that stops her and wrongly believes she is not legally present in the United States.

I think the way it will come down is that the judicial process will be slow, allowing SB 1070 to briefly go into effect, and dozens of court cases will quickly arise from wrongful detention. After a few weeks or months, it will get struck down in court, or at least put on hold. Arizona is then left to pay all of the claims, and willingly retracts it after millions of dollars in damages and credibility.

Taking years to recover from the bad blood they unleashed...

Everyone has some form of ID..If your wife is stopped and asked to prove citizenship while driving she must have a DL...Registration and proof of insurance,Unless you are wanting to sue AZ there is no reason she should not be on these documents... Why should I be asked for all this when everybody that is here legally and going thru the proper steps to become a citizen would want to have enough documention to prove their legal status..The ones who are going to be suing are those who do something purposely to draw suspicion.to themselves. The only antidiscrimitory solution is for ALL Citizens to refuse to prove who we are.No pic ID...,Black out all names and SS #'s on proof of ins and registation..Why should we follow laws if illegals don't have to?.

My wife has a New Mexico driver's license (we live a couple hours away from Arizona), something that Janet Brewer has said is not enough to prove lawful residency or U.S. citizenship. And you didn't comprehend my statement that a Legal Permanent Resident that naturalizes (becomes a citizen) is not required to carry proof of their citizenship. I don't say these things in a trivial way, the state of Arizona will find out situations will arise where they will unjustifiably detain U.S. citizens and legal immigrants.

Believe me, legally immigrating my wife and three stepchildren produced enough paperwork from USCIS, but we aren't in the habit (nor legally required) of carrying all that stuff. But you aren't thinking of the delays in our lives if we have a traffic stop in Arizona, with the amount of time it will take to verify (as Stephen says, probably requiring detaining them then transporting to the closest facility) my family's legal residency. Your comments suggest that you are ultimately unfamiliar with the immigration process, and uncaring about unfair measures as long as it doesn't affect you or your loved ones.

You refer to "Equal Protection" under the law, but are unwilling to give the same courtesy to naturalized citizens and legal immigrants...

I hear about the "put up checkpoints everywhere" people every day. The suggestion that EVERYONE should experience these intrusions into their lives would probably be a grand idea in the end. It would make people realize that we truly don't want that when it affects them personally.

If you have a Valid Social Security Card, A Valid Drivers License, and you are here LEGALLY , Whats the problem? Crossing the Boarder, by climbing over the fence is a crime. And the millions allready here Illegally, Become a US Citizen . Cost of Social Sevices are rising .Hospitals cant afford free health care to millions who use the system and stay in the system .Many states this year and the next will be compiling the same bills . The time for change is now and Gov. Jan Brewer is leading the way.

We do need to do something about it. A law is a law. but some people need to not be so rude and bigoted when they speak of illegals. We are becoming a nation of people who really don't care of other peoples feelings. I am an American Citizen I do not want to be treated like an illegal because I am brown. Just my opinion.

You do realize tat as a natural born citizen it is a crime to operate a moter vehicle without having your drivers licence on your person - why is such a law racist when applied to people here illegally, or at the mercy of the governem, but not when applied to actuall law abiding citizens?

The Feds will come to the Rescue...when? They haven't done so in years why start now?! AZ needs this law, and the law is taken directly from the Federal law. So if you want to boycott or complain about it, do it correctly and boycott the U.S! It is NOT RACIAL PROFILING...Did you read the law!?? It states that if you have pulled someone over for a traffic violation, or have them in custody for a crime they have already commited you can ask for proof of citizenship...Its not hey you are brown I am gonna pull you over and make sure you are legal... People who immigrated here ILLEGALLY should have thought of the consequences before doing so. Everyone should take accountability for their actions, and the reprecussions of those actions for them and the children they brought here. Coming into a country illegally, commiting fraud and stealing peoples identities, commiting tax evasion are serious crimes along with many others...and any CITIZEN would be made to take accountability if they stole someones Identity and so forth. What people are implying is that it is okay for me to break into your home, steal your things, take advatage of your home and it is okay because I am doing it to better myself and my family... Thanks, I will keep that in consideration..Good thing I have responsibility and take accountability for my actions and think before I do something that could negatively affect me or my family and then when the time comes to suffer the consequences I dont make up some excuse and throw racism into it to save myself from having to take responsibility for what I have done.I think all states should take this law and put it into play since our government hasn't done so! (BTW I am not a conservative, I have just lived in AZ most of my life and have witnessed first hand the affects it has had on this state. I just believe that if you wanted to come to USA so bad, do it the right way like all the CITIZENS of this country who immigrated here did, learn English and do what is necessary to get here legally or suffer the consequences of your actions...)

here Legally

Two things...

First, "The Feds Will Come to the Rescue", Huh? So the Federal Government is coming to rescue non-citizens at the expense of its own citizens. In related news 'up' is now 'down'.

Second, if the Federal Government is tasked with making and enforcing immigration policy, but declines to do the latter. What recourse does a state and its citizens have if they are enjoined from doing what the feds won't? (serious question) In other words, if the feds won't enforce immigration laws, states can't either. But it is the states and their citizens that must bare the consequences.

Liberal-lies

Furthermore, the Constitution explicitly gives Congress the power to "establish an uniform rule of naturalization," which it has in the form of the Immigration and Nationality Act.

It is not uniform when the laws on the books say one thing and then without any formal decree the Fed decides to ignore the law under the guise of priority. Exposing liberal lies is a new cottage industry. That 1st lie is the Constitution is vague.

I really like this and I wish it becomes reality otherwise our lives won't be the same, Iunderstand the opinion of each person in favor or not of this law, but the people who is a favor have tothink that we are humans and it is the main thing , you have to think as human as person because you don't in which situacion you will be and you don'nt know who is going to help you, we are here because we have work, we have house, we make monthly payments of everything as you we also do income taxes, the people who works with a fake ss no. and get the payment by check never get the money so where is all the millions of dollars that the social security take from all de indocumented people, we pay taxes every time we buy something, WE ARE NOT CRIMINAL,we are only a hard working people.
