U.S. Senators John McCain and Jon Kyl today made the following statement regarding the United States District Court of Arizona's decision to block enforcement of the most important provisions of SB 1070:
"We are deeply disappointed in the court's ruling today and disagree with the court's opinion that the Arizona's law will unduly "burden' the enforcement of federal immigration law. "Instead of wasting tax payer resources filing a lawsuit against Arizona and complaining that the law would be burdensome, the Obama Administration should have focused its efforts on working with Congress to provide the necessary resources to support the state in its efforts to act where the Federal government has failed to take responsibility." "After this decision, it's even more important to implement our Ten Point Border Security plan to protect Arizonans and our country."
