Vote to Defund the Lawsuit Against Arizona

The lawsuit against Arizona is once again the selective enforcement of law. This practice must not be tolerated.

Help Block Obama’s Lawsuit Against Arizona

A very important and worthy amendment was just defeated in the Senate by a 55-43 vote. Senators Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) and David Vitter (R-La.) introduced an amendment designed to stop the Obama Administration’s lawsuit against the State of Arizona and its taxpayers for SB 1070, the immigration bill that was recently passed and goes into effect July 29.

DeMint understands the situation in Arizona: “States like Arizona shouldn’t be prosecuted for protecting their citizens when the federal government fails to do so. The federal government is rewarding illegal behavior and encouraging many more to enter our nation illegally when they refuse to enforce our laws. States along the border are facing kidnappings, drug trafficking, human trafficking and gang violence and they have a duty to keep their residents safe.”

And Vitter hit the nail on the head when he stated: “The state of Arizona is simply taking responsibility for a problem that the federal government has neglected for years, but Washington’s only response is to oppose these new enforcement efforts and take them to court. The Obama administration should not use taxpayers’ money to pay for these lawsuits that the American people overwhelmingly oppose.”

In order to renew interest in this very effective method of stopping the Obama Administration from using taxpayer money against its own citizens in an effort to circumvent the will of the people and the Constitution, we need to become proactive. We can immediately contact our representatives and senators and encourage them to take part in protecting Arizona’s actions to re-establish the correct ground rules for legal admission into this country, helping to control the anarchy on the border as well.

I’m not for government interference. It’s completely ridiculous that we have to ask the government to interfere on government’s unlawful interference.
