AZ Gov Calls Fed Lawsuit "Outrageous"

 

“Because Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced on Ecuadorean television on June 8th

that the Obama Administration had decided to sue Arizona over its recently passed anti-illegal

immigration law, SB1070, it will come as no surprise if recent media reports are accurate and if the

president’s policies now, in fact, include filing a lawsuit against the State of Arizona.

“Though not surprising, that decision is, nevertheless, outrageous.

“Our federal government should be using its legal resources to fight illegal immigration, not the

law-abiding citizens of Arizona. Despite the law’s rigorous safeguards against racial profiling and

carefully crafted language to avoid usurping federal authority, several lawsuits have already been

filed.

“Because the Arizona Legislature had no confidence that the Attorney General would

vigorously defend this legislation, subsequently giving me the authority to hire outside counsel – and

because the Attorney General has now withdrawn as counsel for the State -- I will ensure the

immigration laws we passed are vigorously defended all the way to the United States Supreme Court

if necessary, where this reasonable law will ultimately be found constitutional.”
