A sampling of news stories related to illegal immigration:

  • The ACLU and NAACP, along with a collection of other groups, filed suit in federal court today against Arizona’s new anti-illegal immigration law, S.B. 1070.
  • The Obama administration apologized to China for Arizona’s new law, S.B. 1070.  Apparently, in the warped minds of officials in the Obama administration, Arizona’s new law is comparable to China’s one-child policy and internet censorship.
  • Hot off the announcement by the Los Angeles City council to boycott Arizona over it’s new law, Kerry Picket of the Washington Times, discovers that the state of California already has a similiar law on the books pertaining to illegal immigrants in its own state.
  • The Los Angeles Lakers head coach, Phil Jackson, finds himself being protested after he spoke out in support of Arizona’s S.B. 1070 law.  Mr. Jackson later massaged his message saying he had respect for those fighting the Arizona law. Whew, I almost thought I might have to like the guy, issue now resolved.
