Open-Borders DOJ vs. America


The Obama administration`s lawsuit
against Arizona,

officially unveiled on Tuesday,
[PDF]is
an affront to all law-abiding Americans. It is a
threatening salvo aimed at all

local
,

county
or

state governments
that dare to take control of the

immigration chaos
in their own backyards. And it is
being driven by open-borders extremists who have
dedicated their political careers to subverting homeland
security policies in the name of

compassion
and

diversity
.

The Justice Department`s
Civil
Rights Division,
headed by

Assistant Attorney General Thomas E. Perez,
took the
lead in prepping the legal brief against Arizona. The
son of immigrants from the

Dominican Republic,
Perez is a far-left lawyer and
activist who worked for the late mass illegal alien
amnesty champion

Ted Kennedy
and served in the Clinton administration
DOJ. While holding down a key government position there
in which he was entrusted to abide by the rule of law,
Perez volunteered for
CASA de
Maryland
[Email
them
]—a notorious illegal alien advocacy group
funded through a combination of taxpayer-subsidized
grants and radical liberal philanthropy, including
billionaire George Soros`
Open
Society Institute
(not to mention more than $1
million showered on the group by

Venezuelan thug
Hugo Chavez`s regime-owned oil
company, CITGO).

Perez rose from CASA de Maryland
volunteer to president of the group`s board of
directors. Under the guise of enhancing the
"multicultural"
experience, he crusaded for an ever-expanding set of
illegal alien benefits ranging from in-state tuition
discounts for illegal alien students to driver`s
licenses. CASA de Maryland opposes enforcement of
deportation orders, has protested post-9/11 coordination
of local, state and national criminal databases, and
produced a

"know your
rights"
propaganda pamphlet
for illegal aliens
depicting federal immigration agents as armed bullies
making babies cry.

In 2006, CASA de Maryland
threatened to protest at the schools of children whose
parents belonged to the pro-immigration enforcement
group Minuteman Project—and then headed into the
Montgomery County, Md., public schools to recruit junior
amnesty protesters who were offered school credits for
traveling with CASA de Maryland to march on Washington.

As a former Maryland resident, I
got to see Perez`s militant friends and colleagues in
action. I

watched
CASA de Maryland President Gustavo Torres
(who met with President Obama last week)

complain
that motor vehicle administration officials
have "absolutely no right to ask for people`s Social Security number or
immigration status to get a driver`s license."
I
stood among CASA de Maryland grievance-mongers who
shouted, "No
license, no justice! No justice, no peace!"
while
playing the race card against naturalized Americans and
legal immigrants who opposed the illegal alien welfare
state.

Perez himself derided
secure-borders citizen activists as
"xenophobes,"
but denied painting the grassroots immigration
enforcement movement as racist. Questioned by GOP Sen.
Jeff Sessions during his Obama DOJ confirmation hearing
last year about the illegal alien rights guide produced
by CASA de Maryland, Perez grudgingly stated that
"the Civil Rights
Division must not act in contravention to valid
enforcement actions of our federal immigration laws."

[PDF]But
"act(ing) in
contravention"
is exactly what the Civil Rights
Division is doing in spearheading the challenge to
Arizona`s valid enforcement actions of our federal
immigration law.

Perez, Attorney General Eric Holder
and the rest of the open-borders DOJ team have invoked a
"preemption"
doctrine based on the U.S. Constitution`s

supremacy clause
to attack Arizona`s anti-illegal
immigration measure and oppose local and state
enforcement of federal immigration laws. Never mind that
the Arizona law was

drafted scrupulously
to comply with all federal
statutes and the Constitution.

You gotta love Obama`s fair-weather
friends of the Constitution. When a state acts to do the
job

the feds won`t do,
Obama`s legal eagles run to the
Founding Fathers for protection. When, on the other
hand,

left-wing cities
across
the
country
pass

illegal alien sanctuary policies
that

flagrantly defy national immigration laws
and hamper
cross-jurisdiction enforcement, the newfound federal
preemption advocates are nowhere in sight.

The Obama DOJ`s lawsuit against
Arizona is sabotage of the people`s will and the
government`s fundamental responsibility to provide for
the common defense. No
border enforcement
, no security. No security, no
peace.
