The last thing anyone wants to hear is:

"I'm the Government and I'm here to help you"!

“Work hard at work worth doing.”

The Feds won't help Alabama implement its immigration law, because they clearly don't want to enforce our immigration laws. Federal law says that immigrants are to carry their "papers" with them at all times, yet when is it that ever enforced?

Can I nominate this CNN report for the most predictable non-news story EVER? Really, her opposition has to be the most predictable, pointless blather in history.

Thanks CNN! How would we know anything without your "help"?

Oh Please

The DOJ prefers to sue states, not HELP citizens!

The DOJ is AGAINST Citizens - even though they work for us...their directives are to ignore the problem so that these foreign nationals can cast enough votes in out elections to swing states to the Fascist aims of the Sitting President.
When the trash in the White House loses his job, with luck so will many of the top DOJ people..and then we can enforce the immigration laws, and perhaps have a prosecution of the Fascists determined to destroy this country.

Great news...and surely more to follow as the DOJ keeps suing these States and prevent these laws from being enforced...already has been shown in Alabama that US Citizens who happen to be Hispanic are being profiled...another law suit in the making...I just love it...

Please provide a link to any story about a legal Hispanic being arrested or detained because they were suspected under the new Alabama law of being in the country illegally. A link to the lawsuit(s) you mention about Hispanics being profiled under the new Alabama law.

The first person to be arrested under the new law did turn out to be in the country legally on a visa. It took his attorney 3 days to provide proof of legal residency. Surprise he was not Hispanic! He was from Yemen. So there goes the “Hispanics are being profiled” BS. He was not arrested for not providing his papers when approached by police. He was arrested for “obstructing a government operation” at a drug bust. While he most likely not be charged for violating federal and state laws by not having his papers with him which he could be, I would think that being he was involved with illegal drugs and being a foreign national from a country with a high level of terrorist connections he most certainly deserved to have his papers checked. Had it not been for the Alabama law he would have been released on bail and ICE would never have been notified that he was arrested. To me even if he is here legally federal authorities should know about his activities. If you read most of the articles about this they seem to want to blame the Alabama law for him being wrongfully charged yet they do not mention one thing about the fact that this man is from a country known for terrorism and he is involved in illegal drugs. This is the sort of thing the DOJ, ICE and Homeland Security should be investigating rather than trying to prevent states from protecting their citizens and sovereignty from illegal aliens and terrorists.
The original check with ICE did indicate that he was in the country illegally. It looks like the failure of the federal government to have the proper information and NOT the Alabama law was the reasons the state filled the charges in the first place. Could it be the “mistake” was intentional in an attempt to embarrass Alabama ?

The DOJ does not work for Americans. It works for the Kenyan President. We will vote Republican in 2012 for no other reason then to replace Holder, and his gestapo.
