Cong. Franks: A Victory for Every State Struggling Under Burden Created by Derelict Government

Congressman Trent Franks (AZ-02) today released the following statement in response to the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Arizona v. United States, in which the court considered the constitutionality of SB 1070, Arizona’s immigration law:

“The Supreme Court today affirmed what proponents of SB 1070 have long held: that the core provision of the bill is not unconstitutional and, moreover, is in perfect keeping with current immigration law, which the Obama Administration has simply decided it’d prefer not to enforce.

“Today’s decision is a victory both for the state of Arizona and for every state struggling under the burden of a federal government that is willingly and shamefully derelict in their duty to control border crime.”
