Mike Huckabee’s response to Judge Susan Bolton's decision on immigration in Arizona.


From examiner.com

Last week’s decision by U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton is just another example of an activist Judge putting their ideas ahead of the law.

Judge Bolton in the very first page of her opinion notes, “Against a backdrop of rampant illegal immigration, escalating drug and human trafficking crimes, and serious public safety concerns, the Arizona Legislature enacted a set of statutes and statutory amendments in the form of Senate Bill 1070, the “Support Our Law Enforcement and Safe Neighborhoods Act.”

Yet her decision did nothing to help the people of Arizona deal with these “serious public safety concerns.” Instead, she chose to put the politics of the Obama Administration ahead of the welfare of the people. Her decision to choose piece-meal the parts of the Arizona law is a clear indication that she simply intended to make a political statement.

I suspect that Judge Bolton was willing to take this bold step of legislating from the bench because she knew that she would have the consistently ultra liberal 9th Circuit Court of Appeals backing up her decision. The fact that our country has even gotten to this point is troubling enough. Like you, I’m upset that the federal government decided to sue a state – who is simply trying to protect itself.
