More on Newt and immigration

From a 2004 letter to the Wall Street Journal, with Newt Gingrich as one of the signers:

“The president has shown courage by calling on Congress to place reality over rhetoric and recognize that those already working here outside the law are unlikely to leave,” the letter states. “Congress can fulfill its role by establishing sufficient increases in legal immigration and paths to permanent residence to enable more workers to stay, assimilate, and become part of America.”

It is simply beyond bizarre that something so commonsensical and self-evident is now the object of scorn by the right.

Scotus Blog : Arizona v. United States: S.B. 1070 - Forum of Kali Borkoski : Many Famous Legal Experts argue here strongly and forcefully against SB 1070 and worry deeply about the Supreme Court making a mistake of upholding and supporting this law

"SB 1070 is poor public policy. It is poorly reasoned, poorly crafted, and—if the Supreme Court lifts the pending injunction—is bound to be poorly implemented", says Legal Expert Ben Winograd.

Professors of Law Ben Winograd, Toni Masaro and Jack Chin argue very strongly against SB 1070.

Note : Professor Kevin Johnson, Dean of the School of Law, University of California at Davis since July, 2008 and Gabriel Chin of the same School have also strongly argued against this law, using the facilities of the prestigious Scotus Blog.
