Should States Request Foreign Aid to Subsidize Illegal Aliens

The Obama administration along with activist for illegal aliens won a small victory in the 11th U.S. Circuit Court. The highly effective Alabama law known as HB 56 had portions put on hold due to constitutional questions.

The Justice Department submitted an argument that state and local governments had no right to protect their citizens from an invading third world horde. They believe illegal immigrants fall under the purview of federal foreign policy:

CNN) -- A federal appeals court has blocked enforcement of parts of a controversial immigration enforcement law in Alabama.

The injunction issued Friday from the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta came after the U.S. Justice Department -- supported by a coalition of immigrant rights groups -- requested the legislation, known as HB 56, be put on hold until the larger constitutional questions can be addressed, a process that could take some months at least.

The 16-page order gives both sides partial victories, allowing some parts of the law to go into effect while others are temporarily blocked.

The Obama administration says the Constitution does not permit states to deter illegal immigration, saying an issue with foreign policy implications is the exclusive mandate of the federal government.

Well, if that is the case, then shouldn’t local and state governments petition the State Department for redress? Should they not reimburse the citizens for the burden of educating, housing, and providing health care to these foreigners?

Does the state of Alabama qualify for foreign aid?
