SEIU : Service Employees International Union : "Business Death Penalty" Wrongly Upheld by U.S. Supreme Court"
It is my impression that SEIU and Sonia Sotomayor think that "Human Nature" as it is will create more cheating and shrewd methods to evade and elude the law.
You can have one million intelligent reasons to think that the Supreme Court Decision is right, or that it is very constitutional and juridically intelligent. And you may be right ..... But does this Arizona Law make sense from an economic point of view ??

"Business Death Penalty" Wrongly Upheld by U.S. Supreme Court
Some excerpts :
As Justice Sonia Sotomayor wrote in her dissent: 'Permitting States to make use of E-Verify mandatory improperly puts States in the position of making decisions for the Federal Government that directly affect expenditure and depletion of federal resources.'"
"Such policies ruin the economy and create a disadvantage for honest employers who are trying to follow the law, while tax-cheating employers drive the underground cash economy with disqualified workers.
"The clear message that should come from this ruling is this: Immigration continues is the sole responsibility of the Federal government, much in the same way that printing money is a uniquely federal responsibility. Immigration enforcement should not be up to the states where short-sighted efforts are more focused on attacking hard working people than on helping our economy.
"Congress must act quickly on comprehensive immigration solutions so that our economy can thrive with workers who become legalized and allow all employers in all states to play by the same set of rules."
