...U.S. Attorney Bill Nettles said the lawsuit filed Monday is aimed at protecting the federal government's constitutional role in enforcing immigration laws and ensuring people are treated equally. The lawsuit names [Republican Gov. Nikki] Haley, the daughter of immigrants from India, as a defendant.

The American Civil Liberties also has filed a lawsuit challenging the law.

[Texas Gov. Rick] Perry said in a statement that he strongly supports South Carolina's law "in light of the federal government's failure to secure our borders and deal with this important public safety issue. Because the federal government has not secured the border, each state is left to find ways to protect its citizens and communities."

[Minnesota Rep. Michele] Bachmann said the "Obama Administration has failed miserably in achieving border security, so shame on them for taking legal action against states who have been forced to do the job for them."

I am glad to see both Perry and Bachmann (no surprise) speak out against this lawsuit. The RINOs who are afraid to take a stand against FOREIGN INVASION are not leaders.

This is issue #1 (among many) for me.

“Treated equally”? Yeah, when an Illegal Alien gets arrested at a MA E.R. for not complying with RomneyCare then I’ll be treated equal.

They’re filing lawsuits against states rather than helping them. They’re not sending help, they’re sending lawyers.
