administration’s first major action was to sue the state of Arizona for tackling the issue. Even Democrats, like the Governor of Colorado, say that waiting ’til the Arizona law actually took effect made more sense.
But Attorney General Eric Holder seems more interested in scoring political points in the Department of Justice than legal ones. One would think he might be too busy defending health care reform or prosecuting 9/11 terrorists to sue a state for filling the frustrating void the federal government has left on immigration policy.
I suspect the people—who seem to understand Arizona’s frustration and support its law—may make their own political points to Mr. Holder and Mr. Obama in this fall’s elections.
