So the White House is going to sue Arizona…

according to this report:

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said in a television interview in Ecuador this month that the Obama Justice Department “will be bringing a lawsuit” against the controversial Arizona immigration measure signed into law earlier this year.

The Lonely Conservative has this to say:

You’ve gotta love Jan Brewer. She’s sticking to her guns, and she has public opinion on her side.

Doug Powers hanging at Michelle’s place notes something:

You can’t help but wonder what the cost to taxpayers of this lawsuit will be, and how much fencing and additional border security the money could have paid for. Then again, if the Obama administration gave a damn about border security, drug smuggling and illegal aliens in general (known to the DNC as “potential voters”), they wouldn’t be filing the lawsuit in the first place.

The weekly standard can count:

While this might help Democrats with Latino voters, the law is supported 60/40 overall. This can’t be a fight Democrats want to have before Election Day, right?

While Captain Ed is amazed by the method of letting this out:

Wow … just wow. What a tremendously incompetent manner in which to announce the decision. The Obama administration informed the Ecuadorian people of this decision before the White House informed Americans. I’m not sure if that’s Hope and Change, the New Transparency, or Smart Power.

Gov Brewer is not amused either:

“This is no way to treat the people of Arizona,” said Brewer, who recently set up a legal defense fund to combat challenges to the law. “To learn of this lawsuit through an Ecuadorean interview with the secretary of state is just outrageous.”

“If our own government intends to sue our state to prevent illegal immigration enforcement, the least it can do is inform us before it informs the citizens of another nation,” Brewer added.

And that not the only promise not kept reminds Nice Deb

He was supposed to let her know what he decided on sending National Guard troops to AZ to protect the border. The two weeks were up, yesterday, revealing yet another empty promise from Obama

Nice Deb, being nice wouldn’t do that.

The Big question is why on earth would a US president be suing a US state of a law that mimics US law that a majority of American support? Repeat after me. If you start from the idea

  1. Perhaps if any of previous administrations did something about it it wouldn’t be an issue now.

    Here’s an article from espn.com about teams preparing for their minor league ball in Arizona Fall League.

    With all this reform…why is it that a foreign ball player can get their paperwork done in a matter of weeks/months but any other immigrant needs to take 5-10 years to get work visas?
