Comment: Hazelton And 2012 - Immigration will play a pivotal role in the 2012 presidential election, for a reason that that was spotlighted yesterday when the 3rd circuit decided Lozano v Hazelton (No. 07-3531, Sep 9, 2010). As the court's opinion made clear, the matter is clearly headed for the Supreme Court, partly since the 9th circuit and 3rd circuit have disagreed on a matter repeatedly coming up before the federal judiciary. The Supremes have already granted cert to the 9th circuit on Chicanos por La Causa Inc v. Napolitano, and will hear arguments on that case during the current term. It is the timing of the Supreme Court's future action which points to the outsize impact immigration will likely have on the next presidential election. To the best of our understanding, the Supremes will hear arguments on the 9th circuit matter (which presents the same question as the 3rd circuit case) somewhere between January and April, 2011. The final decision should therefore be expected in spring 2011. In other words, during the run up to the primaries for the next Presidential election, the Supremes will likely issue an opinion on the power, or lack thereof, of the states to regulate immigration. Either way, it is sure to rile up the nativist vote and/or the Latino vote, among others. Such a judicial cause outside of the normal political process will upset many political apple carts and may force the issue of immigration for consideration by Congress even though Congress would like to avoid confronting it. On controversial issues like immigration, our country has historically sought compromise, however, such compromise often comes after political pressure has built up considerable steam. Immigration has been boiling for about a decade, and something will have to give, and at a time not necessarily pre-planned by the political elite. There was a time when the only thing that was certain was change. On immigration, at least, we now seem to be entering a time when the only thing certain is surprising change. Stay tuned.
