Not only good news but also a rare example of the Obama admin taking a stand on something that might hurt poll ratings.
(CNN) — Obama administration lawyers are planning to file a legal challenge to a controversial Arizona immigration law within a month, according to a senior administration official.
The Justice Department would not confirm the claim, saying only that “The Justice Department is continuing to review the law.”
Federal government lawyers who have been working on the expected challenge for several weeks will most likely file their arguments in federal court in Phoenix in the days leading up to July 28, when the statute is scheduled to take effect, the official said.
Although the Justice Department indicates no final decisions have been made at this point, officials were put on the spot when Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said in a recent television interview in Ecuador the government “will be bringing a lawsuit” in the case.
Wait I forgot: the Justice Department is completely independent and Obama had nothing to do with this. Just like that whole Miranda thing. *cough*
Oh right I was supposed to be giving credit. Well, if they do this then it will be a Good Thing. Period, full stop, no qualifications.
