Comment: Novel Legal Theories - The Supreme Court will soon issue an opinion on the Arizona E-verify case. Immigration Daily has pointed out many times that we believe that the Supremes will rule in favor of Arizona. Such a ruling would be a double-edged sword. Under the theory that the state may issue licenses using such criteria that it deems fit, the state of Utah has enacted legislation extending work authorization to undocumented immigrants. Several other states, including New York, are contemplating similar bills. While we believe that such state laws would be preempted, testing a novel legal theory in court is a privilege which cannot be denied any state, regardless of where it stands on public policy toward the undocumented – unfriendly like Arizona, or friendly like Utah. Such testing merely points out the failure to act of the party where the ultimate responsibility lies – US Congress. We urge our federal legislators to take note of the initiatives of the states and rise to the occasion.
