    Given the reason Clinton stated I believe the question is a good question.

    He would be run out of town on rails if he did, and he is a lot of things, but a fool is not one of them.

    If immigrants are 'directly and indirectly protected' against federal immigration laws in sanctuary cities, how can the Obama admin sue Arizona on the premise that Arizona in in direct violation of those same laws that protect immigrants in sanctuary cities?

    States aren't required and cannot be forced to enforce federal immigration laws...this goes for cities as well.

    Why are you against states rights?

    That is true (I think) but that isn't really the discussion on the table.

    What is being questioned is the inconsistency of the FED regarding the law.

    Hence, my previous post suggesting that is WAS a good question.

    The bottom line is that Obama and his cronies don't give a fig about the US Constitution. They're going to do what they want to do regardless. If the border problem had been taken care of years ago, we probably would not have anywhere near the problem we have today. Government has failed and refused time and time again to do anything along our border with Mexico. All Arizona has done is create a state law that they can enforce.

    Nobody has any problem with anyone who enters this country through proper channels. It's the ones who come in here illegally, breaking a US law the minute they step over the border who are the problem.

    Obama would prefer that there be no borders at all. There are tons of people who have have never stepped foot in AZ but they support the AZ law and think their own state should have laws concerning illegal immigrants.

    Why in the world would any politician enforce our immigration laws??

    One has to look at the big picture as my dad used to say.

    Look at all those prospective voters out there.
