"Arizonans are understandably frustrated with illegal immigration, and the federal government has a responsibility to comprehensively address those concerns," Attorney General Eric Holder said in a written statement. "But diverting federal resources away from dangerous aliens such as terrorism suspects and aliens with criminal records will impact the entire country's safety. Setting immigration policy and enforcing immigration laws is a national responsibility. Seeking to address the issue through a patchwork of state laws will only create more problems than it solves." -AG Eric Holder
It seems that since the feds would have to "divert... resources..." blah blah blah, that the AZ law is fantastic. The feds no longer have to worry about illegals in AZ. There. Go suck an egg DC. I guess it would also put the financial responsibility for the incarceration of the illegals on AZ. That's a good thing too DC. Go suck another egg.
