By approving Attorney General Eric Holder’s lawsuit against Arizona and its tough new illegal immigration law, President Obama has set course into a political hurricane that some political analysts say could ultimately undermine comprehensive immigration reform, at least in the short-term.

“I think they actually believe that, in a righteous, lawyerly way, the federal government had to step forward and assert federal authority here,” Tamar Jacoby, president of ImmigrationWorks USA, a pro-business group that opposes the law, tells Dan Nowicki of the Arizona Republic newspaper. “But I also think it’s a pretty naked play for Latino voters. To me, it was a risky and troubling move.”

Mr. Holder on Tuesday filed suit saying the Arizona law preempts federal authority over immigration, although the law itself – which takes effect July 29 – repeatedly cites federal immigration law as its basis.

First of all, in response to the picture above:

  • “What part of illegal don’t you understand?”  I’ll go ahead and answer here that it appears that you are the ignorant one who ‘don’t’ understand the concept of illegal.  Treating people like garbage because you feel like your own rights and space have been intruded on.. shame on you!  NEWS FLASH: You are here because someone defied that same idea!
  • “Illegal is a crime!” Look, I’m sorry that you skipped church today to make your sign… but it’s vague and it SUCKS!

Yeah, that Eric Holder guy is a real piece of work!  Sticking up for all those millions of people like that. : – )  I find it pretty funny that the one time that our federal government stands up for individual rights and civil rights, even when the majority of the public is against them, is for this immigration battle.  HOWEVER, I am extremely glad and proud that something is being done about SB-1070, because someone had to go in and show them who’s boss.
