Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy

HILARY REVEALS WHITE HOUSE PLANS TO SUE ARIZONA

Rate this Entry

It looks like this was an inadvertent statement of the President's plans before it was formally announced by the Justice Department. Secretary of State Clinton told an Ecuadoran television station:

"President [Barack] Obama has spoken out against the law because he
thinks that the federal government should be determining immigration
policy," Clinton said in comments first highlighted by a conservative
blog. "And the Justice Department, under his direction, will be bringing
a lawsuit against the act."

Predictably, Arizona Governor Jan Brewer is upset as is J.D. Hayworth, the anti-immigrant candidate trying to replace John McCain as Arizona's Senator.

Here's today's chutzpah winner:

Hayworth called Clinton's comments "appalling" in a statement
criticizing her for making "a major domestic policy announcement on
foreign soil."

Um, one of the major reasons the Constitution makes immigration the sole responsibility of the federal government is because of the foreign policy implications of immigration policy. We've already seen that with the Arizona law after Mexico threatened to retaliate through trade policy.

    If you want to sound extra patriotic, just add "here on American soil" or "on foreign soil" to any argument and then stir...

    Hardly a major domestic announcement, everyone knows that they will bring legal action against this law, these people want to continue to use this for their own political gain.... Hopefully they will both get voted out or down....
