Jan Brewer Will Beat Arizona Illegal Immigration Law Suits – Arizona Jan Brewer is reportedly very confident that her state will be able to beat the upcoming lawsuit brought forward by the federal government. The federal government is suing Arizona over their recently passed immigration law that allows police officers to request immigration documentation from individuals that they deem as “suspicious.”
The Justice Department which filed a lawsuit against the law, earlier this week is hoping to have the law nullified in the future. Brewer said in a statement that her state should not be punished for acting on an issue that the federal government had neglected for so long.
“As a direct result of failed and inconsistent federal enforcement, Arizona is under attack from violent Mexican drug and immigrant smuggling cartels,” she said. She also went on to say that she felt that Arizona being attacked for their actions was not the way that the federal government should have gone about the issue.
“Arizona will ultimately prevail against the lawsuits – including this latest assault by the Obama Administration,” Brewer said. Brewer believes that the law that was passed was constitutional, and will be upheld in court.
Experts have weighed in on the issue, and appear to be divided. It is clear that the lawsuit will not be an easy one to win for the federal government, but that does not mean that they will not be able to secure the victory. It will all come down to whether or not the court deems the law as “constitutional.”
