A sampling of news stories and commentary related to illegal immigrants and illegal immigration:

  • It’s time to get to know the legal team who is involved in the recently revealed effort of suing Arizona over its new anti-illegal immigration law, SB-1070.  Michelle Malkin takes a look at Thomas E. Perez, the man who “took the lead in prepping the legal brief against Arizona.”   The lead attorney in the lawsuit against Arizona is Tony West, who was a controversial appointee due to his history of volunteering to defend John Walker Lindh.
  • The federal judge who is hearing all six lawsuits against SB-1070 said today that she is making no promises on whether she will rule to stop the law from going into effect before its scheduled start date of July 29.
  • Given the feds are filing against Arizona under the supremacy clause, an ASU professor says there are three precedent setting cases the judge may rely on when hearing the case.
  • Starting dates for hearings of the lawsuits filed against Arizona are here.
  • While the open borders crowd slams Arizona for its newly passed law, it looks as if they need to put Rhode Island on their list as well since that state has been doing for years what Arizona is hoping to do starting July 29.
