U.S. Sues South Carolina over Immigration Law

Terry Frieden, CNN, November 1, 2011

Justice Department officials pressed their campaign against an immigration law in South Carolina on Monday, saying the measure passed there this summer unconstitutionally pre-empts federal authority.

South Carolina’s law also could lead to the harassment and detention of authorized visitors, immigrants and citizens, federal officials argue in court documents.

The law would “undermine federal law and invade federal authority by imposing punitive sanctions for conduct that falls outside of the state’s police powers and that Congress affirmatively decided should not be subject to such sanctions. And it will interfere with and undermine the federal government’s control over relations with foreign governments,” officials argue, referring to the state trying to require the carrying of documents to prove residency.

Justice Department executives told reporters late Monday they are currently discussing the issue with officials in three other states and their planned approaches to immigration enforcement. The officials said they continue to review the plans of Utah, Indiana and Georgia, which have also passed immigration-related laws.

    This is causing citizens to turn more toward their local representitives, and see the Washington government as illegitimate.

    What a strange world when the USA government taxes citizens, then uses that money to sue them to prevent those citizens from from enforcing the law and protecting their jobs and communities.

    Who is the enemy of the people of the USA?

    There are still some sane people in state legislatures. There are none in the federal government. Ron Paul is not as good on the immigration issue as I’d like but if he becomes President he’ll do everything he can to shrink the size of the federal government. I can think of no other group of people I’d be happier to see unemployed. It would be wonderful if the Great Recession finally reached Washington, D.C.

    “Justice Department officials pressed their campaign against an immigration law in South Carolina on Monday…”

    Translation:

    “Justice Department anti-Whites pressed their campaign for White Genocide in South Carolina on Monday…”

    Anti-racist is just a code word for anti-White

    Why are white people not marching on Washington?

    Why is Obama not being impeached?

    Who is the enemy of the people of the USA?

    Types like Lindsey Weiss from the “Ignorant Viewpoints” article and other of her ilk who believe Whites do not have a right to exist, that the world would be a much better place if Whites were extinct.

    When the government refuses to protect white citizens from foreign invasion while hypocritically invading sovereign countries, the head of the DOJ is a black racist who refuses to prosecute crimes against whites, when the media go out of their way to disparage whites and refuse to report black rapes/tortures and murders against whites and the schools teach little children that whites are responsible for all past, present and future misery, poverty, wars and violence in the world, you can be sure that whites are no longer in control of the American government or culture.

    What is being done to us whites is beyond evil.

    Wake up people! We are in a war for our survival. Our enemies will stop at nothing to make the USA White-Free. These are the same people that starved and killed off the native born Russian population for sport, because they were in the way of their NWO plans.

    The exact same plan has been put in motion here with the exact same desired outcome.

    You get the Government that you deserve. Now we have to organize and support a Candidate that represents our views, or as close to our views as possible.

    If Pat Buchanan is not running, we could Draft him as our Candidate. He certainly can Debate the hell out of the knot heads running now.

    I have excluded Ron Paul from the list of knot heads presently running for the Republican Nomination.

    We could always put our efforts behind Ron Paul. Remember, he wants out of the Federal Reserve, and the UN. Constitution, anyone?

    Then there is David Duke who hasn’t been heard from since he ran for a State Office in Louisiana.

    I am sure that many of the readers here have heard of the American Third Position Party. Why is it that it has not gained any attention, locally or Nationally, by the public?

    Because the Media has a News black-out on them, just as they have marginalized Ron Paul, who scares the hell out of them with his ideas of Constitutional Government, as well as the black-outs of black and hispanic crime across the country.

    Let’s choose a Candidate right now, and support him, before the Iowa Caucus, or we will be left with no choice, as usual, once again.

    Jack responds:

    I request that Amren’s readers strongly discourage this type of thinking, acting and posting as it has been a 100% path to failure for our people for over 50 years. Our side moans and complains about the horrible racial problems and political corruption/treason and we don’t organize locally. Instead we put most of our time, money and hopes that some obscure 3rd party patriot with pro White sympathies will somehow be elected President of the United States on some obscure 3rd party ticket and then this old White hero riding on a White horse will somehow SAVE AMERICA and make America like it used to be back in Ike’s wholesome 1950s White America.

    We can and are winning local elections, taking state houses, governorships in the South, Midwest even in parts of the NorthEast. Everyone here needs to get involved in LOCAL politics and do the hard work to ORGANIZE like the Left organizes. We need to recruit COMPETITIVE candidates who can compete to WIN at all levels and not get less than 1% of the vote. Pat Buchanan, David Duke, Ron Paul or Bo Gritz have as much chance of winning the Miss Teen America beauty contest as they do of being elected President of the United States on some 3rd party ticket in 2012.

    10:

    Don’t agree per se. We haven’t the money or power yet to influence Presidential politics. But while you’re waiting around for some white knight to ride into town and save us, there is probably a thirtysomething Buchananite running for state representative in your area who could use your help. (I’m not making any personal implications here.)

    You mentioned Duke – Even in the days when he had political legitimacy, late 80s early 90s, he screwed his own pooch by giving up his state rep seat after one term and trying for statewide offices. He won the state rep seat once, so he could have kept on winning it. And he could have become chairman of an important state House committee, or even Speaker of the House. That would be a more power and influence than he has today!

    BTW, Duke is a convicted felon, he couldn’t get on the Presidential ballot in most states.

    Very true. What’s being done to us Whites is White Genocide

    Who is the enemy of the people of the USA? Types…who believe…that the world would be a much better place if Whites were extinct.

    They are anti-Whites. They call themselves anti-racist, but what they are is anti-White. And their program is White Genocide.

    When the government refuses to protect white citizens from foreign invasion while hypocritically invading sovereign countries, the head of the DOJ is a black racist who refuses to prosecute crimes against whites, when the media go out of their way to disparage whites and refuse to report black rapes/tortures and murders against whites and the schools teach little children that whites are responsible for all past, present and future misery, poverty, wars and violence in the world, you can be sure that whites are no longer in control of the American government or culture.

    Anti-Whites who are carrying out White Genocide use their control of formerly pro-White countries to make every single aspect of those countries anti-White.

    Wake up people! We are in a war for our survival. Our enemies will stop at nothing to make the USA White-Free. These are the same people that starved and killed off the native born Russian population for sport, because they were in the way of their NWO plans.

    Anti-Whites have successfully implanted deep hatred of us in those who envy us.

    Anti-Whites have opened the borders of every white country, which will interbreed Whites out of existence. The Whites who remain will be hunted for sport by the people who’ve been taught to hate us, just as we today are already hunted.

    Interbreeding like the interbreeding that created the mixed Mestizo race of Mexico is the future that is planned for White countries by the anti-Whites.

    Anti-Whites who are carrying out White Genocide call themselves anti-racists. In fact they are only anti-Whites who hope and work for our genocide.

    Anti-racist is just a code word for anti-White

    Yep. While I’m disgusted with black behavior (the blame whitey, the crime rate, the black race hustlers, etc) and illegals, I’m more angry with the people in charge and the businesses who are catering to them and we pay for it with our freedoms and our own money. Again, blacks, hispanics, and others who don’t ‘jive’ with whites are only where they are at because of people who have sold us out.

    Poster #10 is correct, the very same hostile ethnic aliens behind atrocities against the Slavs such as the Holodomor in Ukraine during the 1930’s are setting up white Americans for the same fate. I regard them and the federal governement as the enemy of whites worldwide because it is controlled by people who are our mortal enemies.

    These hostile aliens are behind:

    1. The incredily destructive to white’s mental and physical well being porn industry.

    2. Globalization and the destruction of the middle class while wrecking the economy and the manufacturing sector at the same time.

    3. Open borders and unchecked non-white immigration which dispossesses, endangers and displaces white Americans.

    4. The bogus war on terror and the burgeoning police state, both of which are a threat to the lives and freedoms of white Americans because the alien elite plan to turn both loose on white Americans.

    5. The subversion of both the Constitution and the rule of law, which again endangers the lives and freedoms of white Americans because aliens are given more rights than native born white Americans.

    6. Dumbing down our kids and consigning them to poverty, violence, oppression and certain death in the spreading gulag archipelago. They will be locked out of good paying jobs of course as well as an education.

    7. Below replacement birthrates, which means we will be a shrinking minority in the face of increasing genocidal violence against us.

    8. The drug trade, which is rendering a growing number of whites incapable of being parents.

    9. Fomenting racially motviated violence against whites, which is making life increasingly stressful and dangerous for us.

    10. The demoninization and slander of whites, to foster among the young the belief we are without worth or value.

    11. The effort to eradicate our language, heritage and cultures to weaken whites and render them more easily manipulated and easy to turn against each other.

    12. The concentration of all the aggregate wealth in their hands and to turn whites into at best serfs and sharecroppers on land that is rightfully theirs, with no control over their destiny, or even their own bodies.

    In other words, these hostiles have their hand in whole or in part in ever negative trend affecting whites. I daresay all of them are atrocities. I think many of us know who those people are without naming names.

    #15: If we all come to the same conclusion as you have, as to who is behind all of this, then why is it fashionable, even here, to beat up on a Country, and its leadership, for doing what they preceived as necessary to save their own people, 70 years ago?
