Immigration Crackdown - Georgia: Group Says Obama Abdicated Duty To Stop Georgia's Immigration Law

Courthouse News Service: "A civil rights group says President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder have abdicated their constitutional duty to intervene and stop Georgia from enforcing its repressive immigration law, set to take effect July 1. The group claims the administration knuckled under to political backlash from its efforts to help derail the unconstitutional Arizona immigration law, upon which Georgia's law was based.

The Association of Persons Concerned with HB 87, LLC also sued Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, in Federal Court.

'(T)he defendants, in response to the political backlash from its aforementioned actions in Arizona, have 'consciously and expressly adopted a general policy' of non-intervention on state encroachments upon its exclusive field of authority 'that is so extreme as to amount to an abdication of their respective duties.''"
