Open-Border Groups in Chamber of Commerce v. Whiting

By Jon Feere and Jon Feere on May 27, 2011

For many years the open-border crowd has pushed hard to perpetuate illegal employment throughout the United States, but today, in Chamber of Commerce of the United States v. Whiting, the Supreme Court has put an end to their anti-E-Verify effort. Many amnesty groups submitted briefs to the Court in support of the Chamber of Commerce in an attempt to get Arizona's law blocked. The list of groups involved in the lawsuit, below, includes the American Immigration Lawyers Association, La Raza, the SEIU, and the notorious Southern Poverty Law Center. Even though this list represents only the tip of the iceberg, it is a good reminder of what the pro-enforcement crowd is up against:

American Civil Liberties Union
American Immigration Council
American Immigration Lawyers Association
Anti-Defamation League
Asian American Institute
Asian American Justice Center
Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund
Asian Law Caucus
Asian Pacific American Legal Center of Southern California
Chicanos Por La Causa
Latinojustice PRLDEF
Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law
Legal Aid Society – Employment Law Center
League of United Latin American Citizens
Los Abogados Hispanic Bar Association
Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund
National Council of La Raza
National Day Laborer Organizing Network
National Employment Law Project
National Immigration Law Center
National Immigrant Justice Center
Service Employees International Union
Somos America
Southern Poverty Law Center
Valle Del Sol

In addition to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and these pressure groups, a number of state-level commerce departments and labor groups lent support.
