Hillary Clinton Spoke Too Soon, But She Was Right
A “senior administration official” has confirmed to CBS News that the Department of Justice plans to file a legal challenge to Arizona’s “Papers, Please” anti-immigration law, SB1070 — as Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced yesterday, in a rather oddly chosen venue: her trip to Ecuador.
Arizona Governor Jan Brewer, who signed the law, already reacted to the Clinton comments by saying “this is no way to treat the people of Arizona,” and I think the Hispanic-Americans living in that state agree.
The faux strict constructionists on the right (who knew that “popular” laws were exempt from constitutional scrutiny?) — for whom the U.S. Constitution is not a living document unless they need it to be (like John “Birthright citizenship is an anachronism” Hinderaker”) — are, naturally, enraged.
Ed Brayton flags an amusing news item about the Texas Republican Party trying to pitch their immigrant-bashing, English-only political platform to Latinos — with a Spanish-language video.
