Alabama tries to defend its Borders

From the formation of the United States the Concept of States Rights was considered extremely important. States Rights was so important that it was written in Article 10 of the Constitution. (The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution , nor prohibited by it to the states, are retained by the People.) The civil war was actually fought over States Rights. Today the argument continues with the Progressive Democrats allowing Sanctuary cities, and denying States the right to protect themselves from Illegal immigration. Arizona is being sued by the Federal Government, Mexico, and Central American Countries for defending it’s border from illegal’s sneaking over. Obama wants to make the illegals legal. He refuses to defend the border. The Federal Government is defying the 11th article of the Constitution. (The Judicial power of the U.S. shall not be construed to extend to any suit in law or equity, commenced or prosecuted against one of the U.S. by citizens of another state or by citizens or subjects of any foreign state.) Why should The Federal Government side with foreign Countries against an American State.
Now Alabama figured out that illegal immigration is costing the State huge sums of money, and taking needed jobs from Alabama citizens. They pass a law to protect their State from foreign aggression in the form of illegal immigration. Like Arizona, Alabama is denounced by Obama and the Federal Government filed suit.“In September, U.S. District Judge Sharon Blackburn issued a ruling on the new law that temporarily blocked four other parts of the law.
The sections blocked by Blackburn:
• Make it a crime for illegal immigrants to apply for a job.
• Make it a crime to harbor or transport an illegal immigrant. 

• Make it illegal to claim tax deductions on wages paid to illegal immigrants.
• Allow discrimination lawsuits against companies that dismiss legal workers while hiring illegal workers.
A final decision on the law won’t be made for months to allow time for more arguments.
The provision of Alabama’s immigration law that mandates the use of the E-Verify program by all employers, including farmers, was not challenged in the lawsuit and will go into effect April 1”

Alabama’s law, passed by the legislature this summer, would allow state and local officials to check the immigration status of public school students and to detain suspected undocumented immigrants without bond. It would make it a crime for immigrants who lack proper documents to conduct business with the state for things such as driver’s licenses.” “The Obama administration says the Constitution does not permit states to deter illegal immigration, saying an issue with foreign policy implications is the exclusive mandate of the federal government,” even though he refuses to do anything about it. http://www.cnn.com/2011/10/14/us/alabama-immigration-law/
Article 1 section 8 of the Constitution, Gives Congress the power to tax, pay debts, provide for the common defense, to provide for the general welfare of the U.S. and to establish a uniform rule for naturalization. It does not say what happens when the Federal Government refuses to enforce its own laws. It is therefore reserved to the States.
