    The Obama Department of (Social) Justice is way off the reservation.
    The federal government cannot prevent local law enforcement from identifying illegal aliens in their behalf. The very premise is ridiculous.
    Why would Homeland Security set up the LESC to process local inquiries if they didn't want cops to use it?
    Why would they establish programs like 287g and Secure Communities to ENCOURAGE local involvement if it were not legal.
    The feds may regulate the process to ensure the civil rights of suspects, but they cannot ban the process itself.
    November 2012 cannot come soon enough.

    Yet they leave the guest worker bills untouched.

    A secret group of pro-illegal folks have decided we need amnesty and business needs an excess of cheap labor. This society cares not about the American worker or the future of this country.

    The enemy is more clear to me in this situation, than it was in Vietnam.

    So, we are waiting to see if the Justice Department wants to meddle in a perfectly reasonable law that is a desperate necessity for a state overrun by people that the federal government is failing to stop at the border?

    THis is the Justice Department this has given up on deporting illegal aliens, and released "Uncle Obama?"

    This is the same Justice Department that fails to prosecute club wielding thugs intimidating voters even though they were filmed in the act?

    And runs the BATF's "Fast and Furious" scheme smuggling thousands of guns to Mexican drug gangs?

    In my opinion, if the DOJ is trying to block any laws from taking effect, then they are probably ones that interfere with the DOJ's ongoing criminal enterprises.

    And, I see our old friends the ACLU are fighting it.

    You can tall a lot about something by it's enemies.

    I think we probably have a very fine law, so let's start enforcing it!
