Hazleton Decision Summary: Kris Kobach

Follow this link for an excellent summary of the unabashed judicial activism parading around as a sound legal decision by federal Judge James Munley in the Hazleton, Pennsylvania illegal immigration case.

Kris Kobach served as the U.S. Attorney General's chief adviser on immigration law from 2001 to 2003, and is currently a Professor of Law at the University of Missouri-Kansas City.

The ACLU cannot support lawsuits against hundreds of municipalities that decide to go the route of Hazelton and Farmers Branch. The way to bring down the ACLU is by depleting its funds. I realize they are a well funded organiztion but even they could not afford to sue that many cities that decide to take matters into their own hands after witnessing the total ineptness of the congress on this issue. Oh, who am I kidding, on any issue.

John -

You are correct. The ACLU. LULAC, MALDEF, et al rely on their targets being intimidated, and into falling in line with their demands. It's expensive to defend yourself against activist organizations, and many people would rather duck their heads and mind their own business rather than pay the price to stand up for what they believe in. If all the cities that reach out to us and are considering passing similar ordinances as FB would follow through, activist organizations would have a much tougher time trying to exert their will.

Have a great weekend, Tim
