(2 of 2) Governor George C. Wallace – State Rights

Via: Alabama Department of Archieves and History

On June 11, 1963, Alabama’s Governor George Wallace came to national prominence when he kept a campaign pledge to stand in the schoolhouse door to block integration of Alabama public schools. Governor Wallace read this proclamation when he first stood in the door-way to block the attempt of two black students, Vivian Malone and James Hood, to register at the University of Alabama. President John F. Kennedy federalized the Alabama National Guard, and ordered its units to the university campus.

Wallace then stepped aside and returned to Montgomery allowing the students to enter.

 “I stand here today, as Governor of this sovereign State, and refuse to willingly submit to illegal usurpation of power by the Central Government. I claim today for all the people of the State of Alabama those rights reserved to them under the Constitution of the United States.”

personal thought:

I think if the current ‘Roberts Court’ had been the ‘court at that time’; we’d still have segregated schools, and ‘COLORED’ drinking fountains.

(1 of 2) Scalia: If States Can Resrict Those Freed Slaves, Then Why Not Messicans?

Via: Wonkette

The Supreme Court conducted a vile smear against the noble state of Arizona today by shooting down most of SB 1070, the law that restricts illegal Mexicans from existing. Our old pal Antonin Scalia, writing the dissenting opinion, simply didn’t care for his peers’ decision. As Scalia sees it, states = sovereign, so states can do whatever they want, however they want it, to keep the filthy Mexicans outside looking in. Where is the problem? Southern states did this all the time with freed slaves, so why can’t they do it with the taco people?

This will go down as one of the great highlights of Scalia 2.0, now featuring more anti-black people precedent:

Notwithstanding “[t]he myth of an era of unrestricted immigration” in the first 100 years of the Republic, the States enacted numerous laws restricting the immigra tion of certain classes of aliens, including convicted crimi­nals, indigents, persons with contagious diseases, and (in Southern States) freed blacks. 

Neuman, The Lost Century of American Immigration (1776–1875), 93 Colum. L. Rev. 1833, 1835, 1841–1880 (1993).  State laws not only pro­vided for the removal of unwanted immigrants but also imposed penalties on unlawfully present aliens (see photo) and those who aided their immigration.^2 Id., at 1883.

You know what, we can totally believe that that happened. Way to cite it in your 2012 opinion, friend.
