The Feds and Arizona

The Feds and Arizona by • July 6, 2010 • Printer-friendly

What Hillary promised an Ecuadorean TV interviewer has indeed come to pass:  the Obama Justice Department has asked a federal judge to enjoin enforcement of the Arizona immigration law allowing Arizona police to ask for proof of citizenship, on the grounds that federal immigration law has preemptive force.  Of course, the only reason the Arizona legislature passed the law was because the federal government has failed in its duty to enforce American immigration laws, and Obama and his predecessor each have wanted to gut those laws and to remove whatever impediments remain to mass immigration from Mexico.  Let us hope that the federal court rejects Obama’s argument, and that more states follow Arizona’s example.
