Justice Department Challenges Utah’s Immigration Law

The Justice Department said it is the federal government's role to enforce federal immigration laws, not local governments.

Attorney General Eric Holder said in a statement that "a patchwork of immigration laws is not the answer and will only create further problems in our immigration system."

So another Law set out by a State to help combat the flood of Illegal Immigrants within the U.S. is attacked by The Obama Administration.

Its not up to the States to do anything, it is up to the Feds; yet the feds do not do anything past the reaches of the border.

Honestly, what is the issue with checking an I.D.? Really, who does it hurt; you are supposed to have some form of Identification on you letting authorities know who you are, so whats the big deal?
If you are arrested for a serious crime do you have the right to keep your identity hidden? hell no.

I find it amazing and utterly mindnumbing that this is always a problem for Liberals; Illegal Immigrant? you can not ask for their I.D,
Voting in an election for the President of the U.S. nope, no I.D. required here either (If you are an Immigrant)

I HAVE TO SHOW A DAMNED I.D. TO VOTE, to show that I am a registered voter ! so should everyone else.

But the U.S. justice Department, the Libtards, and the Obummer Administration seem to feel that showing a simple I.D disenfranchises illegal immigrants, and potential voters.


The Department of Justice and other agencies filed a complaint Tuesday in Salt Lake City that challenges Utah's immigration law, saying the state violates the U.S. Constitution due to its attempt to establish a state-specific immigration policy.
The department said the law mandates enforcement measures that can disrupt immigration practices by the federal government in the area. The Justice Department also expressed concern that, under the law, individuals could potentially be harassed and wrongfully detained, according to a statement.

This is the second lawsuit filed against the law. Civil rights groups filed a lawsuit earlier this year, and a federal judge granted a temporary restraining order in May against House Bill 497. That bill requires people arrested for serious crimes to prove their citizenship but gives police discretion to check citizenship for lesser crimes.
Similar lawsuits have taken aim at immigration enforcement in states like Arizona, Alabama and South Carolina.
