Obama administration to challenge Arizona law

It seems the administration really does have a death wish:

As Hotsheet reported yesterday, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said in a television interview in Ecuador this month that the Obama Justice Department "will be bringing a lawsuit" against the controversial Arizona immigration measure signed into law earlier this year.

Now a senior administration official tells CBS News that the federal government will indeed formally challenge the law when Justice Department lawyers are finished building the case. The official said Justice is still working on building the case.

A suit would likely focus on the notion that the legislation is discriminatory and infringes on civil liberties.

By "death wish," let's see: The American public has consistently favored the Arizona law, in some instances by pretty hefty margins. The administration already looks ridiculously inept in its handling of the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, not to mention its refusal to prosecute very blatant infringements of civil liberties in certain "selected" cases. Then its various high officials get caught ripping the AZ law without having actually read it, then the head of ICE said that they might not process illegals referred to them by Arizona!

Good luck this November, and even better luck in two years.

Hube -- don't use the word "death wish" when referring to the Obama Regime, or else the LGOMB crowd will accuse you of advocating Obama's assassination.

LOL ... funny you said that. I originally had something else in place of "the administration" ... but I didn't change it b/c of the LGOMB. (Maybe something else?)
