This is amazing - the government’s complaint appears to be a combination of
a) We’re too busy catching terrorists
b) Congress assigned the DHS,DOJ and DOS the task of enforcing immigration laws, but they really don’t have to.
An interesting point might be that it seems to want to make State law subserviant not to Federal law, but to Federal policy.
Since policy can change on a whim, no State law, even those fully in agreement with Federal law, could be secure.
Something bothers me about the Complaint—

—the two lawyers to state their bar numbers are puppy lawyers—the senior attorneys only state their names.
Varu is a vegetarian HuffPo blogger—she’s being set up to take the fall and Rule 11 sanctions.
