Arizona's much-discussed law regarding illegal alien status is in line with the federal laws regarding immigration. The Obama administration has vilified, and now is expected to file a lawsuit against the state of Arizona, citing as its reason that immigration policy is a federal responsibility, and a state doesn't have the right to address illegal alien problems.
At the same time, there is dead stone silence from the Obama administration regarding so-called "sanctuary cities" that offer to help and/or hide illegal aliens -- which is in direct violation of federal immigration law. Sanctuary cities also, just as the Arizona law does, make policy regarding illegal immigration, the basis for Obama's potential lawsuit.
Punish those enforcing the law, ignore those violating the law -- does that sound sensible to anyone?
