The lawyer who argued against the law called it “a discriminatory attempt to drive immigrants out of the state.” However, Montana Attorney General Tim Fox argued that the law is necessary because of the federal government’s failure to properly and lawfully regulate immigration. Trying to force illegal immigrants out of the state is not discrimination. It is simply enforcement of the law. One of the basic duties of our government is to maintain secure borders and remove people who are not supposed to be here. Unfortunately, the Montana Supreme Court twisted the Montana constitution to fit a liberal agenda. That is the fundamental problem with judicial supremacy. It removes power from the people and hands it over to a handful of judges. Most of these lawyers are not voted into office by the people in the first place. This is not the way American government is supposed to work. Our constitution sets a foundation for government to receive its power from the bottom up, starting with the people. As long as judicial supremacy has a hold on American courts, common sense laws are at risk of falling to the whim of unelected liberal judges.
