The Obama administration plans to file suit challenging Arizona's immigration law, officials told Fox News on Friday.So aside from the fact that we have a Secretary of State who is a loudmouth--apparently giving away the Administration's plans before the Administration was ready to reveal them--we also see that their claims of "waiting for the lawyers to decide..." are lies as well--Barry and Eric's minds are already made up and they're going to declare war on Arizona no matter what the attorneys recommend.
The confirmation comes after Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said in an interview with a TV station in Ecuador earlier this month that the administration would challenge the law in court, though officials had long said the issue was under review.
Administration officials initially would not confirm Clinton's statement. But an official told Fox News on Friday that while the review is still underway, the decision has already been made that a Department of Justice suit will be filed. The administration at this point is just building its case.
Clinton's announcement was met with outrage Thursday by Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer, who signed the law. Brewer told Fox News she's ready for a fight.
"We are not going to back away from this issue," Brewer said. "We are going to pursue it, we're going to be very aggressive," Brewer said. "We'll meet them in court ... And we will win."
In the TV interview, Clinton was asked how the Obama administration was handling the debate over the law when she gave away what may have been an administration secret.
"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," the secretary of state responded, before calling for comprehensive immigration reform.
Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder have both criticized the Arizona law, but the administration had maintained to that point that its attorneys were reviewing the legislation to determine the next step.
Mexico's drug cartels and MS-13 must be very happy today. Their continued access to our communities has just been vouched for by Obama himself so they have no need to fear ICE or the law enforcement officers in America's heartland.
Most of America supports Arizona on this one however, according to the most recent poll conducted by the (extremely liberal) Washington Post. But then a majority of Americans were opposed to Barry's Stimulus plan and his health care plan too. He just doesn't care, and neither does his Oompa Loompa sidekick, Nancy Pelosi. They'll jam their agenda down our throats no matter how much that We, the People, object, until we rise up and stop them. November, 2010's the best chance for that, folks. If that fails, we may have to start loading magazines.
