A Telling Admission
Janet Napolitano and Eric Holder are currently suing Arizona over the passage of HB1070. The Feds claim that they and they alone have the right and power to enforce immigration laws. But yesterday when Governor Rick Perry requested that Janet Napolitano send more than the piddling 350 National Guard troops that the Feds have sent to the border he was informed that the Feds feel they are doing enough and Napolitano reminded Rick Perry that he had the power to send troops himself at the State of Texas' expense. This is a telling admission. Napolitano just admitted that the States have the right to enforce immigration law. That undermines the Fed's argument in the Arizona case. As was pointed out by a number of the commenters. Funny how the professional journalists didn't pick up on that.
