Twenty-two states are now in the process of drafting or seeking to pass legislation similar to Arizona’s law against illegal immigration. This is occurring despite the fact that the Obama administration has filed a lawsuit against the Arizona law and a federal judge has ruled against portions of that law – a ruling that is now being appealed.
Is that "despite the fact" the administration's against border security, or is it more accurate to say "BECAUSE" the administration is against it?
Either way, this is hugely significant. The people of the States now see DC as nothing but an obstruction in their efforts to protect themselves from illegal alien invaders, and are looking to their State and local governments for relief.
Thomas Jefferson, Patrick Henry, and Jefferson Davis would be proud!
