Hillary Clinton Threatens Legal Action Over Arizona Immigration Law


In a June 8th interview, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said that the Obama administration will sue the state over its new immigration law, the new legislation that would make being in Arizona illegally a misdemeanor.

Clinton said that President Barack Obama thinks the federal government should determine immigration policy and that they Justice Department “will be bringing a lawsuit against the act.”

Arizona governor Jan Brewer signed the legislation, and it is set to go into effect July 29th pending a review of the Justice Department.  This could be halted  because the department has been researching the law for possible civil rights violations, which might mean a potential lawsuit.

According to Brewer spokesman Paul Senseman, the governor was “outraged” and that Clinton’s comments allow them to believe that the Justice Department will take steps to prevent the legislation.

    hiliary your fired .go to mexico where the people love you.this is what is the matter with the usa leaders like you hiliary making laws you dont enforce hiliary and obama are cowards to the immgration laws.justice not in the usa

  • First, there is no such thing. They didn’t just lose their paperwork on the way over, there never was any. Quit calling them Undocumented Aliens, they need to be called Illegal, just like they are. I hear people argue that immigrants helped build this country. I agree. But, to be an immigrant, not a border runner, one has to immigrate through the Immigration and Naturalization Department which has rules and the majority of immigrants to the United States are proud of following the rules and qualifying to be a good U.S. citizen. Where does that leave border runners? Illegal felons, just like I said.
    I am from Arizona and am really tired of hearing about the illegal alien crimes that are going unpunished here as long as some hypocritical politicians that want to not only protect them but are trying to get them citizenship. Right now Mexico has a good percentage of their population over here working and then they are . Most of them are not even aware of who they are protecting. The majority of the illegal aliens who cause the problems are not even Mexicans. They know they can get hispanic (deluded Mexican Americans) to support them as if they are the same. The Salvadoran, Guatamalan, and Hoduran illegals are just not from the same country. The positive points don’t even outway the fact that Vincente Fox wanting to create a civil war here to take back the part of Mexico they lost. That is why Mexico likes that about 1/10 of their population lives and works here. But when they have illegals in Mexico, they are raving mad. When that happens we won’t have an immigration policy. Racial profiling doesn’t exist if the people who are committing a crime are of one specific race. Republicans like Bill O’Reilly say they are anarchists, which is a country without laws of rules. I challenge Mr. O’Reilly to come and live here in Arizona on the border for a while. There are little towns here that are like little Mexico with no real police protection if you are not hispanic. The civil war would eliminate that. When Mexicans have gotten to the point that they are whining about how they get treated here, then, quit embracing the crap from where you came from. It isn’t your culture, it is the crap you either tunneled out or floated over here in a tin can to get away from. If you want to enjoy the new land of opportunity, then come do that, but don’t try to turn my neighborhood into the Shyte hole in the desert you came from. I see Mexican stores, Mexican foods, Mexican street vendors selling crap like corn cob on a stick or those wheel things that are mostly air. How about the Mexican ices that always are named by something from Mexico. If you loved Mexico and all it’s crap then you should have stayed there.

    The Arizona immigration is illegal. Therefore, the federal government has the right to sue Arizona for its behavior. They are using all kind of attics to creating problems. We won’t let them .We will follow the law as it is written. We will make sure the citizen of the Arizona, is safe to go whenever places they want round the states.

    Government-Approved Illegals !

    Speaking of illegals, the government hasn’t built the fence high enough to keep out the un-American criminals who want to take away our freedoms.
    Yes, the government hasn’t built the White House fence high enough to keep out the un-American criminals who somehow got into the White House and who are now working hard to take away the religious, social, and economic freedoms of true American patriots!
    Here are two slogans that Obama would rather not think about: “Unborn babies should have the right to keep and bear arms – and legs and ears and eyes, etc.!” and “Unborn babies should have the same right to be born alive that abortionists had!”
    If Obama should ever happen to Google “Dangerous Radicals of the Religious Right,” do you think he would feel guilty merely walking in the hallowed halls of that House where true Americans walked?
    Is it safe to assume that Mecca Wafers are Obama’s favorite candy? And is barack-coli a vegetable or a disease?

    (Neither Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi nor any other DemocRAT approved of this message!)

  • This will be fun. Has anyone actually read the Arizona SB 1017? All it says is that they will have the power to ask people for their papers, and it authorizes law officers to dump illegals at the immigration detention facility. How can the Obama administration argue with that? Who is advising this administraion? The only advantage I can see is a political posturing given the large Hispanic population, but if you ask the legal immigrant, they would vote for enforcement, so that is wrong-headed. I just don’t get this waste of Federal tax money.

    It is a shame that the current administration of illegal immigrant lovers spends more energy on attacking one of our states than they spend on actually going after these criminals (illegal aliens). More power to AZ and let’s dump Pelosi and Reid as fast as we can as well as making sure Obama is a one-term President. I am an Independent and use to be a supporter of Hillary Clinton, but she is making the wrong choice in this war against illegal aliens.
