Controversial Justice Department Challenges Arizona

The US Justice Department, hot on the heels of lying to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights regarding their pathetic performance in enforcing the Voter Rights Act have set themselves upon further roguish behavior by challenging the rights of the people of Arizona. The Justice Department claims the effort of Arizonans to address the Federal government's failure to protect the boarder in fact oversteps their bounds. Much to the surprise of Justice Department officials, their lawsuit against the people of Arizona has been met with disdain:
"Voters by a two-to-one margin oppose the U.S. Justice Department’s decision to challenge the legality of Arizona’s new immigration law in federal court. Sixty-one percent (61%), in fact, favor passage of a law like Arizona’s in their own state"

Okay, so eveyone figures the Federal government's acting like a bunch of dorks. Surely, after ice tea boycotts and a Obama lead media blitz condemning Arizona, surely they don't disagree with the challenge itself?
"Those who say the issue is Very Important to their vote are even more likely to oppose the government action. Seventy-two percent of those who rate the immigration issue Very Important to their vote disagree with the Justice Department challenge."

Menwhile, the people of Arizona have taken up their cause
"residents from all over the country were among those who donated nearly $500,000 to help Arizona defend its immigration enforcement law, with most chipping in $100 or less, according to an analysis of documents obtained Thursday by The Associated Press.
