OK has anyone else had enough? Obama has decided to use our taxpayer money to sue Arizona over their decision on illegal immigration. What else do we need this nut job to do? Justice files lawsuit against Arizona immigration law - Washington Times
Arizona has a serious problem with border security and now Obama is trying to usurp their attempt at helping correct it. Obama is hiding behind federal law, a law that has clearly not been adhered to or effective, in trying to shut down Arizona.
The government is seeking an injunction to delay the July 29 implementation of the law until the case is resolved. It ultimately wants the law declared invalid.
The government contends that the Arizona law violates the supremacy clause of the Constitution, a legal theory that says federal laws override state laws. It is already illegal under federal law to be in the country illegally, but Arizona is the first state to make it a state crime and add its own punishment and enforcement tactics.
President Obama last week in a major address on the controversy called the state's new rules "unenforceable," and the lawsuit had been expected for some time. The decision comes as the president is calling on Congress to pass a broad immigration bill that would legalize illegal immigrants, but the push has been resisted by lawmakers who say Mr. Obama needs to first worry about border security.
The Government, in this case Supreme being Obama who ran for President, as part of his platform, on comprehensive immigration reform, has decided that he knows what is best for individual states and their rights.
The tenth Amendment states that the powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.
Of course the Obamamites will say that federal law usurps the states rights and to a degree they may be correct but what about this. If the federal law is not enforced, creating duress and a financial burden on the State itself, do States not have the power and/or authority to correct the problem on behalf of its people? Perhaps Arizona should counter sue the Government, and Obama himself, for failure to do their job?

Gee any political motive here by Obama and the insider Democratic machine? You bet.
Gov. Jan Brewer's spokesman called the decision to sue "a terribly bad decision."
"Arizona obviously has a terrible border security crisis that needs to be addressed, so Gov. Brewer has repeatedly said she would have preferred the resources and attention of the federal government would be focused on that crisis rather than this," spokesman Paul Senseman said.
That would make too much sense. Actually spending money correcting a problem instead of spending it aiding and abetting the problem? Gee is that an un American sentiment or what? Sarcasm purely intended.
Republican Sens. Jon Kyl and John McCain of Arizona also lashed out at the administration's decision, saying "the American people must wonder whether the Obama Administration is really committed to securing the border when it sues a state that is simply trying to protect its people by enforcing immigration law."
Well said. It would appear that the Obama agenda will leave no stone unturned including suing a State for doing nothing more than protecting its people. And of course on OUR DIME at that.
Keep up the fight Arizona many of us are with you.
