In the Supreme Court case against Arizona, nine states have filed amicus briefs supporting Arizona, including Florida, Idaho, Kansas, Michigan, Nebraska, Oklahoma and South Carolina. They say they "have a manifest interest in ensuring that their sovereignty is accorded proper respect," and that each state should be able to decide for itself how to protect its citizens from the crime and costs associated with illegal aliens. It is shocking that amicus briefs from foreign governments opposing the Alabama and Georgia laws were filed by Mexico, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and Peru. We need federal and state laws to prevent our courts from considering foreign briefs, or laws, treaties, or court decisions, in interpreting U.S. laws.
It looks like voter fraud is one of the ways that Barack Obama plans to be reelected in November. In defending Texas's voter ID law, Governor Rick Perry said it "requires nothing more extensive than the type of photo identification necessary to receive a library card or board an airplane." Fortunately, at least eight states have passed similar laws. Obama's Justice Department is suing Texas and South Carolina to try to knock out their voter ID laws, even though polls report that 70% of Americans support voter ID.
