DOJ CONTINUES TO SUE ANY STATE SEEKING TO UPHOLD U.S. CONSTITUTION

DOJ SUES SOUTH CAROLINA OVER IMMIGRATION LAW
 
Justice Department officials are suing South Carolina over the state’s new legislation aimed at cracking down on illegal immigration saying that the measure pre-empts federal authority and could lead to the harassment and detention of authorized visitors, immigrants and citizens. DOJ officials also claim that it would interfere with and undermine the federal government’s control over relations with foreign governments because of the component requiring the carrying of documents to prove residency. South Carolina argues that they are trying to uphold the rule of law because the feds have failed to do so.
