There are some real stunners in today’s convoluted ruling from the Supremes regarding Arizona v. United States.  Here are some of my favorites:

“As a general rule, it is not a crime for a removable alien to remain in the United States.”

“Federal governance is extensive and complex.”

“Removal is a civil matter, . . .

” . . . and one of its principal features is the broad discretion exercised by immigration officials, who must decide whether to pursue removal at all.”

“States are precluded from regulating conduct in a field that Congress has determined must be regulated by its exclusive governance.”

“Because Congress has occupied the field, even complementary state regulation is impermissible.”* **

*I made that one up.

**Not really: It’s real.
