“Arizona v. United States: Reading the Tea Leaves of Oral Argument” by Herb Titus and Bill Olson

Michael Harless Publications

Herb Titus and Bill Olson wrote the article “Arizona v. United States: Reading the Tea Leaves of Oral Argument” published on AmericanThinker.com today. An excerpt from the article follows:

“Justices Scalia and Kennedy’s questions seemed to track our brief’s line of reasoning, asking whether Arizona had the power to exclude aliens who are not legally in the country. If so, then Arizona’s policy of enforcement by attrition is perfectly permissible, General Verrilli’s claims to the contrary notwithstanding. If Arizona has retained its inherent sovereign authority to defend its internal borders, except as specifically limited by the Constitution, then not one of the four contested provisions of the state’s immigration law is preempted by federal law.” Read More

“The Proposed Enemy Expatriation Act: Sending American Citizens into Exile” by Herb Titus and Bill Olson

Michael Harless Publications

Herb Titus and Bill Olson wrote the article “The Proposed Enemy Expatriation Act: Sending American Citizens into Exile” published on AmericanThinker.com today. An excerpt from the article follows:

“Introduced as S. 1698 in the Senate and as H.R. 3166 in the House of Representatives, the Enemy Expatriation Act is expressly designed to ‘add engaging or supporting hostilities against the United States to the list of acts for which United States nationals would lose their nationality.’ These bills are inconsistent with current law and Supreme Court precedent. They appear to be tailored to cow the American people, without regard for the 14th-Amendment guarantee prohibiting Congress from divesting an American citizen of his citizenship.” Read More

Herb Titus Law Review Article, “The Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell Repeal: Breaching the Constitutional Ramparts” (December 27, 2011)

Michael Harless Publications

In a hard hitting essay first published in the Fall 2011 issue of the William & Mary Journal of Women in the Law, Herb Titus critically tracks the process by which the 111th Congress repealed “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell.” Titus maintains that from start to finish, the Democratic leadership chose to bring about repeal, utilizing an unconstitutional strategy that breached House rules, divested Congress of its legislative powers, and upended the legislative process by entrusting unelected bureaucrats with the power to prescribe the rules of governing sexual behavior in the nation’s land and naval forces. Titus concludes that, by disregarding the constitutional principles of separation of powers, checks and balances, and federalism, an irresponsible legislature has set a precedent that will threaten powers reserved to the States over their own militia, and increase the unconstitutional law-making powers already usurped by the courts.
