Let the Illegal Immigration Law Suits Begin

By Bobby Eberle, The Loft, GOPUSA: We all knew it was coming. Barack Obama tried to be coy when first asked about Arizona's illegal immigration law, saying he was "disturbed" by it but that no legal action was on the books. And we all took him at his word, right? As we all learned on Tuesday, Obama's Justice Department has filed a law suit against the state of Arizona in an effort to strike down the law. By doing so, Obama has shown his complete disregard for the laws of the land and the sovereignty of the United States.

As reported in The Washington Times, "Justice Department attorneys said Arizona's law violates the Constitution by trying to supersede federal law and by impairing illegal immigrants' right to travel and conduct interstate commerce. They argued that only the federal government can write immigration rules."
"Diverting federal resources away from dangerous aliens such as terrorism suspects and aliens with criminal records will impact the entire country's safety," Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. said in announcing the lawsuit. "Setting immigration policy and enforcing immigration laws is a national responsibility. Seeking to address the issue through a patchwork of state laws will only create more problems than it solves."
Holder is right about one thing... enforcing immigration laws IS a national responsibility. So, what happens when the federal government refuses to do its job? Enter Arizona and hopefully other states who are stepping forward to protect their residences while Obama plays politics.
