Meh, I’m not surprised either. Bolton is the textbook definition of “activist judge”. She is a disgrace to her profession.

Before the governor even signed the law, I knew that it winding up in the Supreme Court is inevitable. SCOTUS isn’t exactly batting 1.000 over the last few years, but I’m holding out hope they’ll get this one right.

I just can’t wrap my head around the concept for the federal government being allowed to ignore their mandates responsibilities, and the state governments just being expected to follow suit just because. It just doesn’t work.

We need to push the two constitutional anti-invasion mandates.
The word “shall” is a mandate.

The US ORGANIC LAW in the US Constitution provides two mandates for States and the Union of States to protect the Union from invasion. By extension it is the concurrent responsibility of every political subdivison of the State, i.e. every person sworn under oath to protect the State and US Constitution, is constitutionally responsible to detect, halt, hinder, report illegal aliens and invaders, regardless of them being military or civilian.Any aiding, abetting or comfort for illegal aliens is a violation of their oath and punishable as a misdemeanor or felony, which ever may apply. These sworn employees who violate their oath, and un-sworn civilians,can and should be held accountable for conspiracy of the crimes committed by the aliens.

Article 1 Section 10 Clause 3
“No State shall, without the Consent of Congress, lay any duty of Tonnage, keep Troops, or Ships of War in time of Peace, enter into any Agreement or Compact with another State, or with a foreign Power, or engage in War, unless actually invaded, or in such imminent Danger as will not admit of delay.”

PARAPHRASED: “EVERY State shall, without the Consent of Congress engage in War, IF actually invaded, or in such imminent Danger as will not admit of delay.”

Article 4 Section 4
“The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence.”

PARAPHRASED:
“The STATES OF THE UNION shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence.”

how much did Brewer and Horne’s political grandstanding escapade cost AZ in time and expenditures this time?
this Republican joke of state leadership would be funny if it weren’t so damaging and embarrassing.
