The following letter was received here in the Atlanta area, as well as to all subscribers across the nation from Mike Huckabee, former Governor and candidate for US President.
Since he lost out in the last presidential race, he has become quite the talk show host. He is seen on FoxNews a couple times a week. He has guests from all walks of life who share experiences from many genres.
He is also a gifted guitarist and plays with a band called, “The Little Rockers,” no doubt taken from Little Rock, Arkansas. He seems to have found his niche.
He is still in the corner with conservatives across the nation and has formed a web site in an effort to help get conservatives elected to offices in Washington as well as state by state.
Be sure to watch the video below which includes an interview with Mike Huckabee on immigration.
In his letter he states:
Last week’s decision by U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton is just another example of an activist Judge putting their ideas ahead of the law. Judge Bolton in the very first page of her opinion notes, “Against a backdrop of rampant illegal immigration, escalating drug and human trafficking crimes, and serious public safety concerns, the Arizona Legislature enacted a set of statutes and statutory amendments in the form of Senate Bill 1070, the “Support Our Law Enforcement and Safe Neighborhoods Act.”
Yet her decision did nothing to help the people of Arizona deal with these “serious public safety concerns.” Instead, she chose to put the politics of the Obama Administration ahead of the welfare of the people. Keep in mind that Judge Bolton could have simply let the matter move ahead for a full hearing on the merits of the case, rather than picking the law apart as she chose to do.
Her decision to choose piece-meal the parts of the Arizona law is a clear indication that she simply intended to make a political statement, rather than apply established law in reaching a fair and equitable decision. I suspect that Judge Bolton was willing to take this bold step of legislating from the bench because she knew that she would have the consistently ultra liberal 9th Circuit Court of Appeals backing up her decision.
The fact that our country has even gotten to this point is troubling enough. Like you, I’m upset that the federal government decided to sue a state – who is simply trying to protect itself. That’s like you using a garden hose to put out a fire at your own house – and then the fire department getting angry at you for not using the right hose.
In the end, this matter will go before the United States Supreme Court, where Judge Bolton may not fare so well. It is inconceivable that a federal judge – who knows the residents of her state don’t feel safe, even in their own homes – would reward the Federal Government for not doing its job.
Let’s hope that the U.S. Supreme Court applies the law properly and lets the states do their job when the federal government won’t.
