Wonder why “discrimination” and “racial profiling” are not part of this lawsuit?
We will have to wait another day (or lifetime) for that lawsuit accusing Arizona of racial profiling or discrimination. On Tuesday, Pres BO filed his lawsuit but it’s hard to reconcile it with what he’s been saying about the Arizona law. Jake Trapper of ABC reports this:
“The court filing states that Arizona law is pre-empted by federal law and therefore violates the supremacy clause of the U.S. Constitution.
The filing makes no assertion that the law is discriminatory or risks being applied in a discriminatory fashion, as the president and other officials said they feared would be the case. Interestingly, this suit makes no civil rights charges against the Arizona law.”
Read it again: The Obama administration does not claim that the Arizona law violates civil rights or discriminates. The Obama administration has decided to file this lawsuit under the supremacy clause of the US Constitution.
Does anyone dispute now that this lawsuit was politically motivated?
We’ve spent the last two months hearing this and that about the Arizona law ….. is this the best that the administration can do after telling us for two months that they were concerned about civil rights?
My guess is that smart people at the Justice Dept actually read the law and concluded that the hysteria about racial profiling and discrimination was just a politically motivated smokescreen.
P.S. In the meantime, Arizona Dems, living in the real world, blasted the administration for filing the lawsuit — Arizona Dems Oppose Immigration Lawsuit.
Wonder why? Arizona Dems are living in the real world and Obama is banking on distracting “hispanos” about that promise to pass immigration reform in year 1!
