Governor Jan Brewer Responds
"...The irony is that President Obama’s Administration has chosen to sue Arizona for helping to enforce federal immigration law and not sue local governments that have adopted a patchwork of ‘sanctuary’ policies that directly violate federal law..."
That was my favorite line of the response by Jan Brewer to a civil lawsuit filed by the Obama Administration via Eric Holder's Justice Department. The filing asks that Arizona be blocked from putting the new immigration law into effect on July 29th.
"...In similar cases, the U.S. Supreme Court has found that states acted within the scope of their authority. And a court isn't likely to act on the racial profiling claim before any profiling has occurred..." (source)
