The “O’Reilly Factor” last night led with two blatant examples of the Obama Department of Justice’s blatant perversion of its law enforcement duties: its decision to drop the case against the New Black Panther Party‘s voter intimidation at a Philadelphia polling station and its lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of Arizona’s illegal immigration statute.
A former Justice Department attorney has accused Attorney General Eric Holder of dropping this case for racially motivated reasons. J. Christian Adams resigned from the Voting Section of the Justice Department after he was ordered to refuse compliance with the the Civil Rights Commission’s lawful subpoena.
Mr. Adams, who did testify yesterday, had this to say on a blog:
I stated on Fox News that it was clear to me that no cases against national racial minorities would issue from the Voting Section during this administration. Let’s hope they change their mind. I testified under oath today, because I had no choice, that those instructions were given by Deputy Assistant Attorney General (DAAG) Julie Fernandes.My understanding of her instructions were that no cases would be brought against national racial minorities by the Voting Section…
Apparently, this Department of Justice does not believe in enforcing the voting rights laws in a race-neutral manner.
Meanwhile, this same Department brought suit yesterday against the state of Arizona in a bid to have its illegal immigration law – not yet even in effect until the end of this month – declared unconstitutional because it supposedly interferes with exclusive federal jurisdiction over immigration matters. Of course, if the Obama administration had done its job in securing our borders, Arizona would not have felt as threatened by the criminals crossing its border from Mexico and killing Arizona citizens.
The Arizona law does not interfere with federal immigration laws. To the contrary, it assists federal enforcement by simply asking federal immigration officials to verify the status of those individuals whom the Arizona police have good reason to believe are here illegally, after asking those individuals stopped in the course of investigating a separate and unrelated suspected legal infraction for their identification papers.
