The federal government isn’t done messing with Arizona. After taking Arizona to the US Supreme Court over it’s anti illegal immigration bill SB 1070 and losing the centerpiece of it; after personally going after outspoken Maricopa County Sheriff, Joe Arpaio; the Obama White House is going after Arizona again.
The Obama Department of Homeland Security, headed by former Governor Janet Incompetano (thank you Mark Steyn), is ceasing the successful 287g program which trained local law enforcement to enforce immigration law.
And now the Holder “justice” Department is setting up a hotline for illegal aliens. See Pat Dollard’s piece about that here. Money quote:
The Justice Department has set up a hotline for the public to report potential civil rights concerns regarding the Arizona law that requires police to check the immigration status of those they stop for other reasons.
The hotline phone number is 1-855-353-1010. The email is: SB1070(at)usdoj.gov.
Holder has set up a government fishing expedition. There should be no violations, of course, but you know that Holder et al have already begun trolling for a host of “Juan Does” to take this case back to the Supreme Court. The phone line is tantamount to ambulance chasing.
Sheriff Arpaio calls it a War on Arizona. No doubt.
