We -- major developments in the fight against illegal immigration and the constitutionality.
Of obamacare today a federal judge.
Upholding key elements of Alabama's anti illegal immigration law and the legal battle against obamacare reaching the Supreme Court.
It appears that the path has been -- for that certainly the appeals have made their way to the Supreme Court.
For more on all of this Fox News legal analyst least we will joins us.
This great to have you here today let let let's start with obamacare.
Petitions from the federation four independent businesses in this country 26 states.
Are those appeals.
And the if you will be appeals have been 26 state run because they're the ones that are actually parties.
Now the issue is going to be whether the Supreme Court takes -- I I personally think that they will but the reason -- a petition rather than an appeal.
Is that the law hasn't really gone into effect in full for us yet and so the they're actually.
But the states are trying to do the same we wanna fast track to the Supreme Court we don't want to wait around until we're all the political affected by the implication of this law.
We've seen split decisions on the constant rationality of individual man right.
The Supreme Court -- within its purview of powers to simply reached down grabbed the case and -- we're gonna this.
Are very reluctant to do that and here's why because that sets precedence over everything you ever we all think that all these issues are very important national report I mean of course that we Air Canada.
That's right but you can see that parties would they would be just that I would alluded to with with search and with petitions.

Said look we're not we don't wanna go through the appellate process -- -- -- -- they lost in the eleventh circuit and I might thinking on that is.
They thought they would lose on the on bank that means all of the judges in and I -- circuit so better take our chances and from a Supreme Court politically.
It's a very.
Bold move I think.
The good news for the states though is that there will be some resolution here in and we forget -- -- -- in politics and it embryology philosophy here.
The fact is this is a nightmare for state.
-- staggering what to do and that's what former Justice Stevens came out and said you know He said look.
This issue has to be decided it has to be decided before the votes are cast Alabama unexpectedly in some quarters rank the federal district court judge.
Upholding Alabama in all of the key you know in many of the key evidence right and it is a new -- off piece of legislation it's a -- piece of legislation being hearken back to you Arizona this is much tougher than Arizona -- and what she -- got to throw the whole thing out she could -- -- the -- -- she did not.
She kept most of it through some things out and then held on and four provisions that are on -- you've got to decide on clearly she was -- jealous and protective.
Federal rights and we're not in any way.
Compromised and the even even if the margin on who can import and that immigration law part of her under clarity -- is it was so welcome my heart part of a 115 about it.
The page opinion a big part of it was all about federal preemption in the supremacy clause that you can't have states.
You're doing more than the -- but.
-- -- -- Does her ruling withstand appeal because appeal certainly will fall either repeal or again I would think because so many -- -- the circuit now number not a circuit in the country over this that there will be petitions the street the Supreme Court.
But yes I think first -- go to the -- are are a.
What's real -- -- thanks for a woman who knows it.
