No sleep 'til Scranton

Tomorrow at the federal courthouse in Scranton our crack attorneys will present oral arguments to stop the deportation of Sameh Khouzam, an Egyptian national who has been tortured in his home country, and will argue for his immediate release from York County Prison before Middle District Judge Thomas Vanaskie. I'll be blogging from Scranton, which will no doubt bring back some fond memories of the Hazleton trial.

To learn more about this important case and to read the most recent briefs, visit the case page on our website. Also, Sameh's supporters have a webpage with a variety of links at www.savesameh.org.

Are you saying that your attorneys are on crack or that they specialize in pharmaceutical law? The quality of their arguments would have me believe the former to be the case.

The PA ACLU legal talent is totally awsome. You just have to read the court transcripts published from the Dover and the Hazelton trials to see that.

Either that or the oppostition just plain sucks. Maybe a combination of the two.

The ACLU sucks. They're scared shitless that their tactic to intimidate local governments by trying to backrupt them won't work. They know that if the case of the local government immigration ordinances makes it to the Supreme Court they'll likely lose. All of the rulings by the lower courts were based upon precedences that so weak that the Court will overturn them and open wide the door to local and state enforcement of federal law.
