California wants its own Immigration Law – will Eric Holder sue?

Let California be its own country, then

Remember Arizona “taking Federal Immigration Law into its own hands”? Holder sued.

Remember Alabama “taking Federal Immigration Law into its own hands”? Holder sued.

Remember South Carolina “taking Federal Immigration Law into its own hands”? Holder sued.

Remember Utah “taking Federal Immigration Law into its own hands”? Holder sued.

Think Holder will sue California now?

SACRAMENTO, Calif.-Nearly 1 million undocumented immigrants could live and work openly in California with little or no fear of deportation under an initiative unveiled Friday by a state legislator and others.
Assemblyman Felipe Fuentes, a Democrat, is helping spearhead the measure, called the California Opportunity and Prosperity Act.
The proposal was filed Friday with the state Attorney General’s Office, marking a first step toward a drive to collect the 504,760 voter signatures needed to qualify for the ballot.
Fuentes called the measure a “moderate, common-sense approach” necessitated by the federal government’s inability to pass comprehensive immigration reform.
“I hope this shows Washington, D.C., that if they fail to act, California will take the lead on this critical issue,” Fuentes said in a written statement.

Yeah, the part I emphasized above seems to be the issue Holder and Obama have with states doing this kind of thing. As in, it’s not a state’s rights issue.

One Republican Assemblyman said it all;

Assemblyman Tim Donnelly, a Republican, blasted the proposal as an attempt to sidestep immigration law. He predicted that it wouldn’t have a “snowball’s chance in hell” of winning voter approval.
“There’s a proper process for coming to this country,” Donnelly said. “Why don’t you respect that?”

More-

California will attempt to achieve their leftists goals via the Initiative Process, or in other words, a Proposition. Which the people will never pass. BUT, the Democrats can tell their radical constituents they tried. With Democrats, intention is everything, even when they accomplish nothing.

    So if the Supremacy clause of the U.S. Constitution is the basics for all the law suits against the States that if passed anti-illegal immigration laws like Alabama, Arizona, and others why shouldn’t the Attorney General of the United States Eric Holder file suit against the state of California if the “California Opportunity and Prosperity Act” becomes law? Either the federal government is in-charge of and responsible for Immigration issues or they are not.

    So that being the case the federal government would have to file suit against the state of California or drop all the others suits against all the others States. What would really put the Obama administration and the Attorney General in a quandary would be if the Supreme Court of the United States ruled in favor of the federal government on one or more for the pending suits already filed. If that happened then the president and the Attorney General would be left with no choice.
