Radical Obama Administration Will File Suit Against Arizona
He won’t secure the border — But, he’ll sue states that do.
The radical Obama Administration will file suit against Arizona over their new immigration law that upholds federal law. Governor Jan Brewer heard the news first yesterday from Ecuadorean television.
President Obama broke his word with Governor Brewer. He said he’d get back with the Arizona governor within two weeks about sending the national guard to the border.
He didn’t. But, he will sue her state.
FOX News reported:
The Obama administration plans to file suit challenging Arizona’s immigration law, officials told Fox News on Friday.
The confirmation comes after Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said in an interview with a TV station in Ecuador earlier this month that the administration would challenge the law in court, though officials had long said the issue was under review.
Administration officials initially would not confirm Clinton’s statement. But an official told Fox News on Friday that while the review is still underway, the decision has already been made that a Department of Justice suit will be filed. The administration at this point is just building its case.
Another official said there are still “substantial” issues to address and work out before the Justice Department knows that it has a strong enough case to file a lawsuit. The official said the department intends to file suit, but that any court action is contingent on the final review.
Clinton’s announcement was met with outrage Thursday by Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer, who signed the law. Brewer told Fox News she’s ready for a fight.
71% of Arizona voters support their new immigration law.
