Skip to comments.Clinton: Administration Will File Suit Over Arizona Immigration Law
Posted on 06/17/2010 4:38:41 PM PDT by South40
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said in an interview with a TV station in Ecuador that the Obama administration "will be bringing" suit against Arizona for its immigration law, though the Justice Department for weeks has said that the issue is under review.
In a clip of the interview posted on a conservative blog, Clinton was asked how the Obama administration was handling the debate over the law.
"President Obama has spoken out against the law because he thinks that the federal government should be determining immigration policy. And the Justice Department, under his direction, will be bringing a lawsuit against the act," the secretary of state responded, before calling for comprehensive immigration reform.

And you will lose, Mz.Rodham.
Let the SHOWDOWN begin.
On the day Jan Brewer was waiting for Obama’s answer to guard on the borders...she’s slapped with this info.
Obama and Clinton lose.
And so shall it be almighty one.
That's all they think is important.
BRING IT ON! There is nothing at all wrong legally with the Arizona law, and besides they need a test case. They just cannot sue the law, they have to object to how it was applied to a specific case.
How nice, Ecuador knows about this before we do.
Now "ain't" that just special.
What are they going to do attack Arizona?
This is the same Justice Department that couldn’t successfully prosecute the ‘willing-to-plead-guilty’ Khalid Sheikh Mohammed.
Good b!tch, bring it on. There is nothing in the Arizona law that isn’t already in the federal law. You pukes refuse to enforce it. So sue yourselves on our dime.
The bill doesn’t go into effect until end of July, so they will wait until July to file suit. Can’t wait until that drama starts. The obedient MSM will have the dupes thinking AZ is one giant concentration camp and torture chamber.
Prospective voters are more important to this administr.... er, regime than we subjects are.
“because he thinks that the federal government should be determining immigration policy”
Do any of these people know how really stupid the crap they fling at us really sounds. Do they really think we’re that stupid?
Or the black panther poll thugs.
Bring it on....this is actually a good thing if true. If the the Supreme Court upholds the law then the states have a justification for doing what they’re doing. If its ruled unconstitional then the Obama adminsistrastion and the federal govt will have to deal with the issue that they clainm is their responsibility.
If states can police their borders with other states for illegal overweight trucks and agricultural goods, why shouldn’t they be able to police their southern state borders with mexico?
Betweeen this, Obamacare and the possibility of passing cap and treade with lame duck its just about time we the owners of this country start withoulding our taxes until the Tyranny Stops-thats about the only thing we can do short of Civil War/Revolution, they refuse to listen to the majority of the people. Who does DOJ they represent? Mexico? Is that not treason when we are being invaded?
There's not a chance the Governor of Arizona will fail to appeal any negative ruling by a federal judge in this case.
They, the Democrats, could lose it all on this case. Right now they have the chance to limit their damage to Arizona simply by doing nothing.
Odds are good that the lawyers at DOJ who know the story of Prop 187 are not telling the goobers Obama brought in to run the agency the truth.
The federal government has abdicated its responsibility and now they want to try to prevent the states from enforcing federal law as if ONLY the feds can enforce federal law. If the feds want to play that way, the states should refuse to help the feds in any way.
Another nail in the Rats’ coffin this fall.
We are living in a dictatorship.
I love watching these dems going down...
O.K. Corral II Electric Boogaloo
They already are attacking us.
I despise this government. God d**n the people that elected it to power!
States rights versus Federal rights...showdown time...
The Fed needs the money and the votes from the illegals. The states have to pay the price as the illegals suck them dry...
When in the course of human events...
Better file it against standing Federal Law Hillary since AZ’s law simply mirrors it........idiots.
Of course it will. Makes perfect sense. Can't have a rogue state like AZ screwing around with/discouraging a potentially massive voter base.
Once again, a radical from Illinois is elected President and proceeds to tear the country apart. There is no way that this systematic dismantling of America can wind up any other way than our enslavement. No way, unless we stand up and resist.
It is becoming loud and clear. Obama has declared war on the Red States.
Sue first. Ask questions later.
From as much of what she said that I saw on television I find it interesting how she puts this entirely on Obama. She did not say we or put her statement in a form that would assume that the decision is a right one or would be hers also but rather that it emanated out from Obama and is his alone and by implication not hers. This may have been a deliberate leak rather than a misspeak because Hillery wants to put space between herself and the decisions that Obama makes and she may have also wanted to give Arizona a heads up for future political benefit.
Just don’t show up. It’s the state of Arizona versus Don Quixote for criss sakes. They’re imaginary.
I love to see her and her husband grovel to this muslim. Another bumper sticker idea:
Clintons Suck ... Obama!
I have known this man for years. J
Please continue to pray with us concerning the events occurring in Piedras Negras. Remember, we have 5 churches in Piedras Negras.
Last Wednesday, on the road to Allende, Some tourists from the US and Canada were visiting a ranch in Allende. There was an attempt to car jack their vehicles, (2010 Suburban and 2010 Ford F 150 Pickup) As soon as the drivers saw what was happening, they tried to turn around and drive away. One hijacker jumped on the running board of the suburban and shot the driver in the head, killing him instantly. One of the American passengers was also shot. The pickup escaped and got back to the US side of the river and reported the incident. When the driver of the Suburban was shot, the vehicle left the roadway and rolled over. THE MEXICAN AUTHORITIES REPORTED THIS AS A ROLLOVER ACCIDENT. That alone will tell you how deep the cartels control the authorities in Piedras Negras.
Yesterday morning, Sunday. Hand grenades were thrown into a Casino in Piedras Negras. We do not have information on how many were killed or wounded.
Yesterday Afternoon: In a restaurant in Piedras Negras (one block from our downtown church) two members of the Mexican Navy who were eating lunch in the restaurant were assassinated while eating.
Piedras Negras is living in fear. Thus far, none of our church members have been affected, with the exception of a member of the downtown church whose grandson was kidnapped on the street three weeks ago and nothing has been heard from him since.
We praise the Lord for all our Pastors who are standing faithfully against these attacks and giving hope and encouragement to the people. Please keep them in your prayers.
A week ago Wednesday, 4 individuals were murdered in Piedras, the following Thursday 3 more were killed. They cut the head off of one of the victims and left it on his doorstep so his wife would see it when she left the house.
We are maintaining a low profile in the work in Mexico. We are trying to purchase an old clunker vehicle to move around in in Mexico so as not to draw any type of attention to our presence.
Last month, when the chief of Police in Villa Acuna Mexico was assassinated, (18 bullet holes in the body from AK 47’s) His body was brought to Eagle Pass for burial at the request of the family. While the body lay in the funeral home, the cartels tried to enter Eagle Pass and remove his head while the body was in the funeral home. They wanted to put it on display in Mexico to show their power. The American authorities got word of it and SWAT teams stood guard on the bridges and around the funeral home.
Mexico needs your prayers. The Mexican people are precious people but their world is being torn apart by the drug cartels.
Our God is able to deliver the Mexican People. Please pray for us and with us for the churches and the Mexican people.
D and C
What if she loses the lawsuit, as I expect she will, yet she and Arizona still do not give in? Will it result in Civil War II? If so, would you join them?
It’s not the lawsuit that’s obnoxious.
It’s the attitude of the electorate that elects these people, again, and again and again.
" The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president".
We can only hope that 0haha and his black panther lover, the fraud posing as our AG sue Arizona for their stand.
That will drive 0haha and most rats's ratings and poll numbers down even more.
Besides the conservatives, who speak out about illegals, there is a very large % of Americans, who are afraid to say they support Arizona in this battle of survival because the PC cops will be over them. They will be quiet about this issue or pretend to support the illegals and 0haha and the vote the illegal loving rats out in 2010 and 2012.
So Hillary decided to spout off in Ecuador? What irony...none of this bothered her though! In fact, it is quite obvious she agrees with them!
OLD GLORY BURNED BY ECUADORAN CROWD DURING CLINTON VISIT
El Universo (Guayaquil, Ecuador) 6/8/10
Crowd burns U.S. flags in Ecuador
While U.S. Sec. of State H. Clinton met with Ecuadors president at that countrys Presidential Palace, a crowd gathered in front, burned two U.S. flags and shouted Out with the killers of immigrants!, Gringos out from Latin America!, and Out with the killers of Palestinians!.
(The relating link below also shows two photographs. One shows the actual burning of the U.S. flag, while a sign nearby shows the likeness of Che Guevara, Fidel Castros revolutionary ally. The other photo shows a pair of hands holding a flier that reads USA is crime and terrorism.
The flier was produced by the MPD (Popular Democratic Movement.) The photos can be enlarged by clicking on the words Ampliar Imagen on the right side of the photo.)
Shrill, her raping husband and Lord 0haha would be right at home in a country that hates America.
Not so fast, Hilly ol’ girl...seems you don’t know the Constitution, and it says states can enact such laws. Hahaha.
Oh I think she knows it. Just like ObaMao she's hell-bent on destroying it.
OMG! Thank you for the information, this is frightening!
God’s blessings be upon you and all of the brave souls there.
