Is the US CODE UNCONSTITUTIONAL?

US CODE TITLE 8 > CHAPTER 12 > SUBCHAPTER II > Part VIII > § 1325

§ 1325. Improper entry by alien

TITLE 8 > CHAPTER 12 > SUBCHAPTER II > Part VIII > § 1324a

§ 1324a. Unlawful employment of aliens

WE DO NOT NEED IMMIGRATION REFORM.  WE NEED IMMIGRATION ENFORCEMENT.

ENFORCE THE LAW


We should treat immigrants like Mexico does:

At present, Article 67 of Mexico’s Population Law says, “Authorities, whether federal, state or municipal ... are required to demand that foreigners prove their legal presence in the country, before attending to any issues.”

That would simplify things.


Operation Wetback was a 1954 operation by the United States Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) to remove about one million illegal immigrants from the southwestern United States, focusing on Mexican nationals.

@TheRumpledOne

One constitutional objection to SB 1070 is that the federal government’s power to regulate immigration is enumerated in the Constitution, and is thus not a state power. The argument is that states can’t enforce their own immigration laws, because the federal power holds sway.
