Today the Obama administration announced that it will file a lawsuit against Arizona’s new immigration law. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had previously announced the Obama administration’s intent in an interview given on TV in Ecuador. The lawsuit doesn’t even make the claim popular among the left that the law is discriminatory in any way. No, the basis for the lawsuit is that Arizona is trying to enforce federal law that the federal government has refused to enforce.
Contrast this decision, with a decision by the Attorney General to drop a case of voter intimidation by Black Panthers in Philadelphia after the case was won. Former Department of Justice lawyer J. Christian Adams, turned whistleblower, says that the case was dropped for racial reasons: “No voter intimidation case is going to be prosecuted if the victim is white and the defendant is black.”
Listen to this report which includes violent threats by Black Panther Shamir Shabazz:
This is not the first of Holder’s ideologically-motivated decisions. Previous examples include Holder’s decision to hold a trial of 9-11 terrorist mastermind Khalid Sheik Mohamed in New York City, a decision that Obama ultimately had to reverse because of public outcry.
Since Holder continues to be Attorney General, it is clear that his ideology is shared by President Obama.
