AG King to file brief in support of Arizona immigration law

(MONTGOMERY)— Attorney General Troy King will ask a federal circuit court to reverse a lower court's injunction that stopped enforcement of Arizona's immigration law. The Attorney General is joining in an amicus curiae brief to be filed Friday in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit by the State of Michigan in the case of United States v. State of Arizona.

Attorney General King and nine other state and territorial Attorneys General had joined in July to support Arizona in a similar brief asking a federal district court to dismiss the Justice Department's challenge to the Arizona immigration law and to deny the Justice Department's request for a preliminary injunction.     

"These amicus briefs are acts of self defense," said Attorney General King.  "Our states are being harmed by the influx of illegal aliens. The federal government has failed to protect us by securing our borders. Now that the states are attempting to protect ourselves, the federal government has challenged our right to do so. We stand with Arizona and reassert our rights, pursuant to the Tenth Amendment, to once again, make the states laboratories for public policy experimentation."

Citing federal law and U.S. Supreme Court rulings, the Attorneys General assert that Congress specifically provided for cooperative enforcement of federal immigration laws by the states as well as the federal government. They argue that Arizona's law does precisely what Congress allowed and intended under federal law. "Arizona has by statute simply mandated that its law enforcement officials participate in assisting the federal government in enforcing immigration law to the full extent envisioned by Congress."
