Obama Justice Department is even challenging Arizona immigration laws signed by Democrat Napolitano

So where is the angry racist rhetoric used against the current Republican Gov. Brewer? I don't possibly see how the law that revokes business licenses based on a firm breaking other laws could be deemed unconstitutional. Does the Obama administration recognize how many crimes prevent one from getting a business license?

The Justice Department is asking the Supreme Court to strike down a state immigration-enforcement law Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano signed as governor of Arizona.

In a filing Friday afternoon, Acting Solicitor General Neal Katyal asked the court to hear a challenge brought by employers and immigrant-rights groups to the employer-sanctions statute Napolitano signed in 2007.

"Those provisions disrupt a careful balance that Congress struck nearly 25 years ago between two interests of the highest importance: ensuring that employers do not undermine enforcement of immigration laws by hiring unauthorized workers, while also ensuring that employers not discriminate against racial and ethnic minorities legally in the country," Katyal and other government attorneys wrote. "There is no reason to believe that Congress intended a result that would subvert the purpose and operation of its general prohibition on state sanctions." . . .

By effectively joining the challenges to the law, the Obama Administration is asserting broad federal control of immigration--a position that will make it easier to pursue a lawsuit against the more controversial immigration law passed in Arizona this year allowing local police to make arrests of non-citizens lacking legal status. The administration is also siding with immigrant-rights groups who have accused the White House of not making immigration reform a priority.

A spokesman for Napolitano had no immediate response to a request for comment.

As governor, Napolitano said she thought the state law was valid. Indeed, she was initially a defendant in many of the lawsuits challenging it. The Ninth Circuit rejected those challenges, but the Justice Department is now arguing that that ruling was wrong. . . .

Maryland for title service agents:

Criminal background checks- A Maryland criminal background check is required for all officers, partners, owners (licensees) and others who have a financial interest in the dealership. In addition, if any of the licensees or other person with a financial interest in the dealership resides outside of Maryland, or has lived in Maryland for less than 1 year, then their current/former state of residence also must conduct a criminal background check. A background check from a private company will be accepted if the Maryland State Police licenses the company as a Private Investigation Agency. The results of these other state criminal background checks must be submitted.
