U.S. Sen. David Vitter this week joined five U.S. Senators and 76 Members of the House of Representatives in filing an Amicus Brief with the U.S. District Court in Arizona opposing the Obama administration's lawsuit against Arizona's immigration law. The brief, which was filed on behalf of the bipartisan Immigration Reform Caucus, explains how the administration's claim that Arizona's immigration law preempts federal immigration law is unmerited.

"The state of Arizona is simply taking responsibility for a problem that the federal government has ignored for decades," said Vitter, chairman of the U.S. Senate Border Security Caucus. "And instead of helping Arizona deal with its overwhelming immigration problem, the administration is opposing these new enforcement efforts and suing the state.

"Americans support increased border enforcement and the Arizona law specifically. They don't want this ridiculous lawsuit, and they don't want to see their hard-earned dollars finance it," said Vitter.
