Arizona governor countersues federal government

Arizona Governor Jan Brewer filed a counter-lawsuit against the federal government last week (Febr 10, 2011) for failing to control the border and enforce immigration laws, and for sticking the state with huge costs for jailing illegal immigrants who commit crimes. This is an interesting move. After his state was challenged by the Federal Government – this is now his attack.

The Arizona counter suit was filed in the federal government’s legal challenge to Arizona’s new enforcement immigration law. The immigration issue in Arizona has a long history, we reported earlier here.
