U.S. Sen. David Vitter today made the following statement in response to a ruling by a federal judge blocking several key portions of Arizona's new immigration law:
"This decision, just like the whole approach by the Obama administration, is outrageous. The Arizona law is simply trying to enforce the laws already on the books and would not be necessary if the Obama administration would focus on enforcing our federal immigration laws instead of taking states to court. That's what I tried to achieve with my amendment that would have withheld funding for the Department of Justice to sue Arizona over its immigration laws," said Vitter.
