According to an Associated Press article:¬† “The Bush administration is suing Illinois over a new state law it says complicates federal efforts to crack down on illegal immigration.”

Contrast this with an article on thedenverchannel.com: that reports¬† “A federal judge has thrown out a lawsuit filed by the state alleging the federal government has failed to do enough to stop illegal immigration.”

Or with a recent article that appeared in the NY Times accusing “Immigration and Customs Enforcement unlawfully force their way into the homes of Hispanic families in the New York area without court warrants or other legal justification, sometimes pushing down doors in the middle of the night, in search of people who do not live there.”

Until Congress does its job and addresses the immigration issue, it looks like the Courts will have to.
