As you know, yesterday the Department of Homeland Security reacted to the Supreme Court’s decision about the Arizona immigration law by basically telling its agents to stop cooperating with Arizona law enforcement. Not to be outdone, the Department of Justice has its own reaction.
The Justice Department has set up a hotline for the public to report potential civil rights concerns regarding the Arizona law that requires police to check the immigration status of those they stop for other reasons.
This would be the same Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice that decided to dismiss all charges against the New Black Panthers in the voter intimidation case in Philadelphia three years ago.
I can only assume that if your civil rights are violated in Philadelphia, it’s ok, but if they are violated in Arizona, it’s not ok.
This group just gets sorrier and sorrier.
