    Now, here is a lawsuit that makes sense.

    Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer announced Thursday that her state will file a countersuit against the federal government, claiming Washington has failed to enforce immigration law along the southern border.

    The governor said the federal government hasn't secured the state's border with Mexico and has stuck Arizona with the costs tied to illegal immigration.

    "Because the federal government has failed to protect the citizens of Arizona, I am left with no other choice," Brewer said.

    Arizona should have filed this years ago, as well as the other border states.
  3. Good for Arizona.

    What do our resident lawyers think of the likely outcome?
  5. Easy case, the feds have statues that they impose over the states. These statutes should be enforced with federal resources. I think border control is one thing the people would pony up for if they could point to a fence with some guards and predators flying over at regular intervals.
  6. Could be good for the whole country if they win.
  7. Don't count on it with the "wise latinas" in the Supreme Court.

  8. I once acted as my own lawyer but ran into conflict about my fee.:cool:
