Feds face deadline for answering Brewer’s suit

U.S. Justice Department lawyers face a Thursday deadline for filing an answer to Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer’s lawsuit that accuses the federal government of failing to control the state’s border with Mexico and enforce immigration laws.

The federal government hasn’t yet responded to the counter-lawsuit that Brewer filed two months ago as part of the Justice Department’s lawsuit that seeks to invalidate the state’s immigration enforcement law.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security, which is in charge of policing the nation’s borders, has called Brewer’s lawsuit meritless.

Brewer’s lawsuit accuses the federal government of sticking the state with huge costs associated with jailing illegal immigrants who commit crimes.

U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton has put the most controversial sections of the enforcement law on hold.

Brewer has appealed that ruling.

  1. Typo! Since the Black Panthers travesty we now refer to Obama’s/Holder’s entity as the Department of Injustice.

    To respond to Napolitano’s charge re Brewer’s meritless lawsuit I would suggest readers catch up on Judical Watch’s investigation into the bogus DHS and the obvious corruption that exists within it.

    Also, follow up on charges brought by Thos Perez (Civil Rights Div) and it is obvious Napolitano, Holder, and Obama are actively working to destroy this country….all with the assistance of the Ninth Circuit.
