Supreme Court will hear Arizona immigration law SB1070 – Elena Kagan to recuse herself from the case
Now it’s time to apply more pressure on Kagan to recuse herself from the ObamaCARE SCOTUS hearings. Throughout Elena Kagan’s career she has placed her politics above rule of law. So with the news that the Supreme Court will hear arguments over Arizona’s immigration law SB1070 probably in April of 2012, Kagan’s recusal comes as welcome news. Fox News reports that Kagan has recused herself, but no site mentions why the Marxist Justice decided to. 2012 is going to be one helluva year to determine this country’s future.
The justices — minus Justice Elena Kagan, who did not participate in consideration of the petition — said they will review a federal appeals court ruling that blocked several provisions in the Arizona law, including one that requires police, while enforcing other laws, to question a person’s immigration status if officers suspect he is in the country illegally.
Like the health care debate, the case adds another politically charged dispute between a Republican-dominated state and the Democratic administration to the court’s election-year lineup. On Friday, the justices also intervened in a partisan fight over redistricting in Texas. That case will be heard in January.
