Obama Administration Challenges Arizona Immigration Law

Obama ordered the Attorney General to file suit against Arizona for protecting their own borders when the Federal Government won't do the job. The Arizona Law mirrors federal law so what is the problem with Obama? What did he promise the Mexican President who pays more attention to than our Governors.

Obvious to us like Obama favors illegals over American citizens with the challenge to this bill. Americans are supposed to sit down and do what he says in granting amnesty to those who break our laws. It is not going to work this time as the vast majority of the American people support the Arizona Immigration Law.

It cost all of our states hundreds of thousands of dollars and into the millions in some states to fund people who are here illegally but we are supposed to not want action taken? No amnesty -- no path to citizenship for anyone here in the United States illegally. Why should Americans be responsible for anyone who broke the law to come into this Country for whatever reason? If we snuck into Mexico, we would be arrested for being in the Country which is fine with us. Yet their President wants to join in a lawsuit against Arizona for enforcing the law. Double standard. Every state needs to pass a law like AZ and what will Obama do then?

White House challenges Arizona immigration law

The federal government filed a lawsuit today to block SB 1070, an effort by Arizona to curb illegal immigration in the state. Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer says the law is necessary because the federal government has failed to secure the U.S. border with Mexico.

The legislation would require Arizona law enforcement officers to check the immigration status of people they stop, detain or arrest whom they suspect are in the country illegally.

President Obama had said immigration is a federal, not state, responsibility and expressed concern that SB 1070 could lead to racial discrimination. The law is scheduled to take effect July 29, unless its implementation is blocked by a judge.
