Secretary of State: U.S. To Intervene in SB 1070 Case

Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, says that the United States will intervene in the SB 1070 litigation to challenge the new Arizona immigration statute. (E.J Montini, Hillary Says Feds Will Sue Arizona over SB 1070, The Arizona Republic, June 17, 2010). If this is the case, the United States had better act soon as the cases seem to be moving quickly with a motion for a preliminary injunction pending as well as two motions to dismiss. If the U.S. intervenes, this would seem to strengthen plaintiffs' claims especially the claim that the State of Arizona is unconstitutionally invading the federal government's power to regulate immigration.
