Illegal immigrants score Supreme Court victory

A United States Supreme Court decision handed down on Monday, May 4th, states that prosecutors cannot charge an undocumented worker with aggravated ID theft, unless they can prove the worker intended to commit fraud.

The decision came with a 9-0 vote.

The details of the decision likely turn on some very specific aspects of the law.

More important than the decision, however, is the reaction from those with anti-immigrant leanings. A reading of the comments posted to the story show
  1. strong anti-immigrant rhetoric, and
  2. strong anti-government rhetoric.
The anti-government postings are concerning, especially given the recent Department of Homeland Security report on the danger of domestic terrorism sponsored by the right-wing radical fringe.
