I admit that I am exceptionally perplexed, vexed, and of the opinion that the United States government, with the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in particular has gone completely mad. It has now been reported that the undeniably liberal activist 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, which is understandably the most over-turned court in the nation, has once again decided to not follow Constitutional guidelines while adjudicating a case.
It would seem that they are bowing to international law, with the tacit (perhaps explicit) approval of the United States Department of Justice, in allowing eleven southern nations to weigh in on the "un-Constitutional" nature of the state of Arizona's new anti-illegal immigration law. Needless to say Arizona Governor, Jan Brewer, is angry along with tens of millions of other Americans, and is trying to understand whereby foreign nations should be allowed any say whatsoever in regards to the case of the sovereign state of Arizona in the assumed sovereign nation of the United States of America when it comes to enforcing its international border security.
The 9th Circuit is allowing dissenting opinion on Arizona's immigration law to be accepted from Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Mexico, Nicaragua, Paraguay, and Peru. The irony, and indeed hypocrisy of allowing dissent in a sovereign nation's disposition on one of its state's laws is that nearly all of these countries have exceptionally tough illegal immigration laws of their own that typically imprison any such violators of these immigration laws on their first offense.
Of course, Mexican President Felipe Calderon has been an outspoken critic of Arizona's clamping down on illegal immigration, due to the federal government's egregious failings in not protecting our nation's southern border from the exodus of illegal aliens flooding into America from across that same border. Note that Mexico has exceptionally tough illegal immigration laws and indeed has very tight security across it's southern border with Guatemala.
The fact that international law and self-interested views from foreign nations are being considered and actually solicited by our federal court system and the Obama Department of Justice is inexcusable when deciding a matter that by its very nature must be determined by the sovereignty of the Federal Government under the dictates of the United States Constitution alone.
The creeping ingress of globalization and international law trumping the dictates of American Constitutional law should not and cannot be abided. Attorney General Eric Holder and President Obama, I implore you to defend your oaths to protect and defend America and its Constitution from right now going forward. Otherwise, this is indeed an egregious and pernicious offense that frankly rises to the level of high crimes and misdemeanors in my humble opinion. Indeed, as Ronald Reagan famously said, "A nation without borders is not a nation."
