Suit against Arizona becomes one of federal rights
What started off as a civil right issue is now about the state's right to enforce

WASHINGTON, DC — After smearing Arizona's immigration law as racial profiling, the Justice Department has issued its lawsuit against the state. But it's not about civil rights anymore. It's about a federal "right" to not enforce U.S. law.
When Arizona passed a law last April mirroring U.S. federal immigration law, it was the opposite of the sort of challenges states historically bring to the feds.
