Let's confirm it with this exchange between Justice Roberts and Mr Verrilli, speaking for the Obama administration:
"“No part of your argument has to do with racial or ethnic profiling, does it?” he asked Verrilli, who agreed." (DallasNews)
At one point, we heard this:
"“You can see it's not selling very well,” Justice Sonia Sotomayor, a member of the court's liberal wing and its first Hispanic justice, told Solicitor General Donald B. Verrilli Jr., referring to a central part of his argument against the measure." (DallasNews)
The Obama administration is in real trouble if Justice Sotomayor is not buying their arguments.
It looks like the Arizona law will stand and states will be allowed to do what a weak president does not want to do. The Justices understand that we live in a nation of laws NOT one where laws are enforced selectively to distract one group from campaign promises not kept.
It had nothing to do with the merits of the law.
It had everything to do with a president who couldn't get his party to pass a law that he promised to pass.
He didn't do it and now he wants Hispanics to forget about his failure by lying about Arizona.
My guess is that all of those well meaning people cheering outside the court will be very disappointed in late June.
Hispanics disappointed again with Obama? What's new? Disappointment has been the order of the day since millions of Hispanics subscribed to that fantasy called "si se puede"!
