Thank you Supreme Court

The following item was sent in by a Committee member who found it online at the Tea Party Nation Forum.
On May 26th, the United States Supreme Court decided a case.  There is nothing unusual about the Supreme's deciding a case.   The vast majority of cases heard and decided by the Supreme Court do not make the news.  This one did not make much in the way of news, but the end result could be incredible.

On May 26th, the case of Chamber of Commerce v. Whiting was decided.  The genesis of this case came from Arizona’s frustration over illegal immigration.  Looking to do something about it, they came up with a very narrow idea.  The 1986 Immigration Reform Act stripped the abilities of the states to enforce immigration law.  But it did leave an opening.  The act specifically forbids states from punishing employers civilly or criminally for hiring illegal aliens.   It did leave the door open for the states to move in the area of “licensing.”

Next MCRC Meeting: Bridging the Generational Gap - August 15th

Chuck Carver
Fellow Republicans,

I want to recognize the enthusiasm demonstrated during the Precinct Training these past few weeks. While this is an MCREC effort, many Club members took part and made a difference. What a great and early start for our combined efforts for next year. This will be a continuous struggle; so, find your role in the build-up to the 2012 elections. We need everyone to help.

Our theme for the next meeting of the Montgomery County Republican Club on 15 August will be “Bridging the Generational Gap.” Cliff Sims will be our speaker. He is Chairman of the University of Alabama College Republicans, and is making a pitch for all Republicans to reach out and make next year a big win for us, especially in Montgomery. We all need to hear his message as we consider and act on the 2012 plan.

I’ve reached out to the other Young Republicans and College Republicans In the Montgomery area, i.e. Huntingdon, Faulkner, and the High School Clubs, and hope many will attend our next meeting to hear Cliff’s message As we grow our efforts, we need to involve everyone, and this is the place to start.

Please make a special effort to attend on the 15th and bring your friends. See you there. We can win!

Chuck Carver
Club President
