Judge Sides With ACLU in Georgia

As a follow-up to my post last week about the controversial immigration bill in Georgia, it is to be noted that federal judge Thomas Thrash, a Clinton appointee, has sided with the ACLU in striking down major parts of that bill:

Judge Thomas Thrash granted a request to block parts of the law that penalize people who knowingly and willingly transport or harbor illegal immigrants while committing another crime. He also blocked provisions that authorize officers to verify the immigration status of someone who can't provide proper identification.  Thrash wrote that under parts of the law, the state is enforcing immigration law that should be left to the federal government.

It's that "left to the federal government" part that just kills me.

Note to ACLU and Judge Thrash:  the states are trying to do the job the federal government WON'T do.  Get out of the way and let them.

It is bad when Holder and Obama take the side of Mexico and not a state as they did with Az. Liberal judges seem to always side with the ACLU which means against what is best for the U. S.

It's going to be amusing when one of the "good ole" Georgians gets arrested because they're not able to prove who they are having left home without identification.

Holder and Obama both should be jailed for treason against the United States
