Eric Holder's DOJ Files Suit Against Alabama

Eric Holder's DOJ and the Obama administration have filed suit on yet another state for their attempt to control illegal immigration in absence of the feds attempt to do so.

This time it's Alabama.

"Today's action makes clear that setting immigration policy and enforcing immigration laws is a national responsibility that cannot be addressed through a patchwork of state immigration laws," said Attorney General Eric Holder.  "The department is committed to evaluating each state immigration law and making decisions based on the facts and the law. To the extent we find state laws that interfere with the federal government's enforcement of immigration law, we are prepared to bring suit, as we did in Arizona."
I'm trying to find an example of "the federal government's enforcement of immigration law."  I'll let you know if I find one.

You are right. There is no serious attempt by the federal gov. to control our borders. They want as many illegals as possible so they can give them legal status therefore having another block of voters. It is a sad situation when a state tries to defend itself from an invasion and the feds take the side of the criminals.
