Floridians: Does He Represent You?

     Attorney General (and candidate for Governor) Bill McCollum is adding Florida to a list of states supporting the Arizona immigration law.  McCollum announced the plan to join with other states supporting the Arizona law against legal challenges by the Obama administration.
     Mr. McCollum, Republican, is using a legal issue to advance his political career.  "I support the current law in Arizona, and I support efforts to see a similar law brought to our state. Seeing no action or leadership from the federal authorities, Arizona has every right to move to protect its citizens, and for this they are being sued by the President," said McCollum.
     The lawsuit against Arizona was filed by the federal government -- not specifically President Obama -- because it is contrary to the Constitution for one state to make immigration policy.  It is the same as if Alaska, by itself, declared war against Russia or declared that only persons over 30 years of age can vote.  States simply do not have that power.  Arizona's argument is that its laws are consistent with the federal immigration laws.
