Gitmo Case Goes to the Supremes, While Senate Votes on Detainee Transfer

The legal controversy revolving around the Chinese Muslims detained at Gitmo is heading to the the nation's highest court:
The Supreme Court set aside the objections of the Obama administration and said Tuesday that it will consider whether judges have the power to release Guantanamo Bay detainees into the United States if they have been deemed not to be "enemy combatants."
The case, involving a group of Chinese Muslims known as Uighurs, again thrusts the court into the jangle of policy decisions and constitutional principles involving the approximately 220 men still held at the base in Cuba. And the court's decision to hear it could further complicate plans to close the military prison in January, a deadline the Obama administration recently said it might be unable to meet.
Meanwhile, the U.S. Senate has given legislative approval for allowing Gitmo detainees to be brought to the U.S. mainland under certain conditions:
After dropping some popular immigration-enforcement measures, Congress on Tuesday passed the 2010 homeland security spending bill that gives President Obama the authority to transfer terrorism-suspect detainees to the United States for trial, though only after he submits a plan to Congress...
The spending bill funds more than 20,000 U.S. Border Patrol agents, pays for more border security technology and extends the E-Verify program, which allows businesses to check a government database to make sure their new workers are legal. But it doesn't require further construction of the U.S.-Mexico border fence.
E-Verify was extended only for three years, and a provision allowing businesses to check their existing work force in addition to new hires was dropped.

The bill also contained a provision that prevents the disclosure of detainee abuse photos.

    Extraction by E-Verification will cause--expedited ATTRITION--without huge expenditures, without forced deportation. Agents of ICE only need to mobilize a large force of Auditors to investigate employer I-9 records nationwide, zeroing in on the 127 Sanctuary Cities. Not just new hires should be vetted through E-Verify, but--ALL--long-time employees. Nobody should be exempt, because jobs are being stolen by illegal nationals with fraudulent documents. There is always the Social Security Admin to resolve the hiring issue? Informants within the company can contact ICE if they have a suspicion individuals working there? Businesses should be responsive that there are severe monetary risks or even prison, for employing illegal employees?

    We surely need exemplary court sentences for companies that hire illegal labor. So when unable to support themselves as jobs are no longer available, they will leave by their own accord. NOW IS THE TIME TO COMMAND OUR RETICENT SENATE & CONGRESSMAN TO IMPLEMENT E-VERIFY PERMANENTLY FOR EVERYBODY IN THE WORKPLACE AT 202-224-3121. Also investigate the prestigious public watchdog legal group at JUDICIAL WATCH relating too sleaze and corruption in--ALL--government. CAPSWEB will explain to you about the risk of OVERPOPULATION. We should boycott any store, manufacturer who doesn't display the E-Verify notice in the store window or in human resources departments. Nor do we need another AMNESTY, as the last one was abused by the open border nuts and fraudulently used by guest workers. IT WAS NEVER BROKEN, IF ENFORCED CORRECTLY? ANOTHER AMNESTY, JUST MEANS MORE COMPETITION FOR JOBS BY AMERICANS, AND MILLIONS MORE ASSAULTING THE BORDER FENCE. ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION WILL NEVER STOP, UNLESS WE CUT OF--ALL--GOVERNMENT HANDOUTS AND PARASITE BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES?.
