    Department of Justice Files Lawsuit Challenging Arizona Immigration Law

    By PIERRE THOMAS
    July 6, 2010

    EXCERPT:

    The Department of Justice filed a lawsuit today challenging Arizona's new immigration law, which takes effect July 29.

    The suit challenges the law on the grounds that immigration is under the purview of the federal government and that Arizona has overstepped its bounds. Justice also claims that the law is too broad and could result in racial profiling and discrimination.

    The lawsuit names Arizona and state Gov. Janice Brewer as the defendants.

    While the legal challenge had been expected, signaled by Attorney General Eric Holder and President Barack Obama in statements soon after the statute was enacted, the lawsuit is sure to set off a firestorm of debate pitting the federal government against Arizona.

    Republican leaders have already lashed out at the Obama administration.

    This is the most ain'tshyt measure I've seen this Administration perpetrate. I know liberals saying FGSFDS over the lawsuit.

    Context doesn't matter to this liberal it seems/ as long as it satisfies his godless dreams/ like monkeys throwing sh!t as castles in air/ as long as he throws/that is the extent of his care.

    They can bring the lawsuit, it will fail. Since this law doesn't overstep anything prescribed by Federal Law, but merely implements it, the Feds have their head up their ass at this point. The discriminatory claim is going to have to pass equal application, which it will with no problems.

    I find this amusing though, well maybe 'amusing' isn't the appropriate word.

    How can they bring suit over a law that they didn't even read?

    Holder and his band of clowns will fabricate things that are not in the AZ law. They is just for show to increase Hispanic voter registration/participation as they can not be serious about winning.

    The attempt here is to also by default shoot down the federal laws as well.

    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    They're hoping to find a judge who hasn't read it either.
