Reaction to the Susan Bolton Decision

US Judge Susan Bolton has banned Arizona from enforcing Federal immigration law, and in doing so, has abrogated the general police power of the state.  More importantly, she has chosen to use the status of legal aliens as the anvil on which to smash Arizona's initiative:
Requiring Arizona law enforcement officials and agencies to determine the immigration status of every person who is arrested burdens lawfully-present aliens because their liberty will be restricted while their status is checked.
I am sorry she had to do that.  Until now, I had been opposed to the early cancellation of any person's visa being part of a policy to reduce immigration.  As of now, I support immediate cancellation of all immigrant visas for citizens of any country whose leaders have spoken against US immigration statute or the enforcement thereof.
