Your opinion IDAHO SUPPORTS ARIZONA APPEAL ON ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT LAW?

Question by Maricopa County: Your opinion IDAHO SUPPORTS ARIZONA APPEAL ON ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT LAW?
(BOISE) – Governor C.L. “Butch” Otter announced today that the State of Idaho has joined Michigan in filing a “friend of the court” brief with the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in support of Arizona’s law on illegal immigrants.

Attorney General Lawrence Wasden, in consultation with the Governor, signed on to the amicus brief Thursday. It makes the case that states have the authority to concurrently enforce federal immigration law, provided that states do not create new categories of aliens or attempt to independently determine the immigration status of an alien.

The brief also contends that the Arizona law is consistent with the regulatory scheme established by Congress – which is one of concurrent enforcement, where the federal government must respond to any inquiry by a state or local government agency seeking to verify the immigration status of any person within its jurisdiction.

“Arizona is simply requiring its law enforcement officials to help the federal government enforce immigration law as envisioned by Congress,” Governor Otter said. “State officials have the right under existing federal law to identify illegal aliens and report them to federal authorities. It’s our affirmative duty to protect states’ rights, and that’s particularly important when a lawsuit seeks to punish a state for doing what the federal government has failed to do – protect our borders and American citizens.”

Eleven states now have joined in the appeal from a federal judge’s initial ruling against Arizona in the lawsuit filed by the U.S. Department of Justice.

Gem County(City of Emmett), Idaho residents only…is this still the law?

Question by baldwin91006: Gem County(City of Emmett), Idaho residents only…is this still the law?
To those who live in this county outside your capital city(Boise), this one’s for you…

Almost 10-13 years ago, your “State’s Attorney”(aka “DA”) passed a strict “no loving in public ALLOWED” law…where it simply said:you are caught kissing in public ANYWHERE in Gem County(not just the City of Emmett), and neither of you are wearing a WEDDING RING, you’ll GO TO JAIL(no bail) for “violating the Morality Laws of the State of Idaho[dating back to 1905[???]”…

Is that State’s Attorney STILL in Office, and is that ridiculous law still on the books?…

Just curious…b/c I’m planning a trip to the Boise area soon, and don’t want to face the wrath of a very “religiously strict” prosecutor who thinks that he’s GOD!…

Thanks…
SEVEN hours, and yet NO answers from Emmett(or elsewhere in Gem County)?…c’mon now, I need SOMETHING!
Late last night, I e-mailed the Gem County DA’s office and posed the Q, and I’m still waiting to hear back…

I’ll K.I.T. w/ the answer…

Answer by Jacinto
Hey, Baldwin, I’m surprised that NO ONE from Gem County has answered this Q yet…

However, I get a weird feeling that the law’s still on the books…so, I’d think twice before going to Emmett…stay close to within the Boise area…

BTW, I’m from Hemet, CA(21 miles southeast of Riverside)…

What do you think? Answer below!
