Breaking: White House has confirmed lawsuit against Arizona law SB1070

Via HotAir: Remember the lawsuit announcement on Arizona’s SB1070 that we broke yesterday? Well the White House has now confirmed that Sec. Clinton was right:

It was unclear yesterday whether Clinton’s comments were simply a prediction or mistake or whether instead she was getting ahead of a planned announcement by the administration.

Now a senior administration official tells CBS News that the federal government will indeed formally challenge the law when Justice Department lawyers are finished building the case. The official said Justice is still working on building the case.

By June 8 they had already made up their mind but told the people of Ecuador instead of telling Gov. Jan Brewer, who they met with just days before. How insulting. My guess is that they’ve known about this for much longer, but were waiting for the right time to make the announcement. Looks like we forced them to go ahead and announce!

So instead of doing their job and protecting the border, they are going to spend millions challenging a law that was only passed because they are not doing their job of protecting the border. The ultimate hypocrisy. Sounds to me like they really don’t want anyone protecting the border.
