The Supreme Court is considering a review of Arizona's E-Verify law that passed in 2007 and requires all Arizona businesses to use the online workplace verification tool on new hires. According to a new op-ed from Reps. Lamar Smith and Todd Tiahrt, Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan was the driving force behind the Administration's decision to challenge the law.
Arizona's E-Verify law has already won court challenge after court challenge, including the law being upheld by the liberal Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. The challenge by the Obama Administration and originated by Kagan questions the law's revocation of a business license if it knowingly hires illegal aliens.
Reps. Smith and Tiahrt are critical of the Obama Administration's lax immigration enforcement efforts and expressed their concern over whether Kagan would be objectionable and evaluate cases on Constitutional merit or be a "rubber stamp for President Obama’s radical agenda."
With the Supreme Court likely to be asked to rule on these issues soon—the American people deserve to know the answers to these questions. Even more so, the American people deserve to have Supreme Court decisions rendered by justices who adhere to the Constitution, not politics.
