How ridiculous is this? We have some 11 million illegal aliens who are committing crimes and clogging our prisons. Costing the taxpayers far more money in government services than they pay in taxes. Taking jobs away from American citizens and driving down the wages for many types of jobs. So what does the 0bama administration do? They sue the state of Arizona for trying to do something about the problem!
From NBC's Pete Williams
Justice Department officials say it's only a matter of when -- not if -- the federal government will sue Arizona over its new immigration law.
Justice Department lawyers have been working for weeks to draft their complaint, an effort that is not yet complete, officials say. Though the lawsuit will likely not be filed within the next several days, the government's goal is to go to court before the Arizona law takes effect in late July.
A comment earlier this month by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, which came to light late this week, has caused a stir. Asked about the Arizona law in a June 8 television interview in Ecuador, Clinton said: "President Obama has spoken out against the law because he thinks that the federal government should be determining immigration policy. And the Justice Department, under his direction, will be bringing a lawsuit against the act."
