Justice Dept to file suit against Arizona immigration law next week

At first blush, this is great. But what worries me is that the Latinos are being played the same way the gays have been played. Rather than pass comprehensive immigration reform this year, as promised, the administration is weighing in on a high-profile case that, heinous as it is, only affects one state. It’s an easy to way score points on immigration without doing the heavy lifting of trying to pass real national reform. Had the administration gotten real reform passed, this suit would be welcomed. But without national reform, the suit is a sorry substitute.
