This was pretty much expected....
From CBS News --
As Hotsheet reported yesterday, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said in a television interview in Ecuador this month that the Obama Justice Department "will be bringing a lawsuit" against the controversial Arizona immigration measure signed into law earlier this year.
The comment was striking because both President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder had said only that the administration was considering a suit. Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer, who signed the law, called Clinton's comments stunning and added that "to learn of this lawsuit through an Ecuadorean interview with the secretary of state is just outrageous." She has said in the past she is prepared for a court fight.
It was unclear yesterday whether Clinton's comments were simply a prediction or mistake or whether instead she was getting ahead of a planned announcement by the administration.
Now a senior administration official tells CBS News that the federal government will indeed formally challenge the law when Justice Department lawyers are finished building the case. The official said Justice is still working on building the case.
Even though the federal government refuses to do their job and enforce the federal immigration laws, they have no problem launching a full-frontal assault on the rule of law in Arizona -- that being the State of AZ Constitution.
It because of these types of over-reaching, unconstitutional, state sovereignty smashing & complete disregard for the rule of law tactics we see coming out of D.C. that the citizens in the State of OH must prepare and arm ourselves with lawful measures protecting our state sovereignty.
PCCOH) get the State Sovereignty Amendment to the OH Constitution on the ballot you can help protect the rights afforded to us as citizens in the State of Ohio and hopefully stop the onslaught of unconstitutional authorization, legislation and regulation being mandated & passed by this administration.

We are also encouraging member to ask their local City Council or Township Trustee's to pass a resolution in support of Arizona's new immigration law. For a copy of the Resolution Supporting AZ's Immigration Law click here.
