Case in point: the Soviet-style show trial Schumer held to "review" Arizona's immigration bill, which -- as everyone knows -- simply upholds federal law and explicitly prohibits profiling.
“Our founding fathers gave Congress plenary power over immigration law,” Schumer said. “The Supreme Court has consistently interpreted the naturalization language in Article I to mean that the establishment of the immigration laws and the manner of their execution are committed solely to the federal government.”
...[Former Arizona legislator] Pearce countered that “illegal is a crime, not a race,” and that the majority of illegal immigrants just happen to come across the southern border... “It’s simply the rule of law,” he said. “Laws without consequences are not laws at all,” and SB 1070 forbids racial profiling, he added.
Plenary power, eh? Which means all of those Democrat-run "sanctuary cities" and "sanctuary states" will be punished for violating federal immigration law? Of course not, because Schmucky is a lawless hack who is more interested in drumming up the votes of illegals than protecting lawful citizens and legal immigrants.
Earlier today, the Supreme Court heard oral arguments concerning the constitutionality of Arizona's law. Some observers thought Schumer's hot-dogging was intended -- like Obama's pontificating about Obamacare -- to intimidate the Supreme Court.
But what the lawless Obama administration and Schmucky heard from the Justices must have been disturbing.
...“It seems to me the federal government just doesn’t want to know who’s here illegally,” Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. said at one point [and] even Democratic-appointed justices were uncertain of [the Obama administration's argument].
“I’m terribly confused by your answer,” said Justice Sonia Sotomayor, who went on to say that the federal government can always decline to pick up illegal immigrants when Arizona officials call.
When the history of this Republic is written, Schmucky Schumer will go down in history as one of the most nefarious, vicious, and reckless political thugs ever to slither on the floor of the Senate.
