The WH has yet to define the grounds of any chanllenge. They would be setting themselves up as comedians if the try to use *misguided* as grounds.
Justice Department poised to challenge Arizona immigration law - Los Angeles Times
The Wednesday mentioned was in May by the way, which kinda disproves the whole "no one told us" claim in the OP.Top Justice Department officials have drafted a legal challenge asserting that Arizona's controversial immigration law is unconstitutional because it impinges on the federal government's authority to police the nation's borders, sources said Wednesday.
"I can explain it to you but, I can't understand it for you"
[B]At first[B] thought "discrimanation" BUT THENI sat down and read thro and if they have to be in a accedent or pulled over or put in a reason they need to show papers FIRST and can produce the 'stuff' they need to prove they live here then why would we just look over that..i dont care who you are mexican french german ect. you need to be here leagly and if the fedral goverment cant make that happen then the states have the 10th admendment on there side to do it!
Drafted, but yet to be filed!
impinges on the federal government's authority to police the nation's borders will be difficult to prove (if/when filed) as the AZ law has nothing to do with policing the border.
At the same time, the government officials said, the department's civil rights section is considering possible legal action against the law on the basis that it amounts to racial profiling of Latinos who are legally in Arizona but conceivably could be asked to provide documents proving their citizenship. Notice the words *considering possible legal action* on the rcial profiling. [If] they do use, then a revamping of the Federal Immigration Laws will be necessary first.
What issue are you speaking of specifically?Redress:
Your cases as best I could see did not address that issue.
P.S. Thanks for the article....
Give kudos to Arizona for forcing the issue.....

Arizona and every state ought to file a countersuit against the federal government for every dollar it costs their state to deal with a problem the Fed has created.
