Conservatives in Arizona pretty much worship the Constitution, its freedoms and its founders. As soon as there is a conflict that points to racial profiling that plain and simply preempts federal law, all of these so-called scholars and worshipers of the Constitution seem to want to trample on it and fire up the ignorance of Constitutional law and say SB 1070 is fully Constitutional no matter what.
So all the backers, writers and signers such as Russell Pearce, Jan Brewer and Sheriff Joe Arpaio will be getting a well-needed education on Constitutional law in the courtroom. Maybe then these ignorant lawmakers can explain to their big conservative following how the Constitution preempts state laws. It will be a big taste of reality for our conservative state.
Our Department of Justice, like it or not, is just doing its job, defending the Constitution. Thank you Mr. President for the education on Constitutional law. Our state needs one real bad!
John Chiazza, Gilbert
