It's a war against the states.
"We're in the astounding period in our country's history where the federal government is at war with three states. The Interior Department will be suing the State of Louisiana over the oil moratorium, HHS will be suing the State of Virginia over the implementation of Obamacare, and the Justice Department will be suing the State of Arizona for having the audacity to duplicate federal law at the state level."-- Chris Stigall, June 23, 2010, KCMO-710 radio. (h/t Crucis Court)
Time Magazine (CLICK HERE FOR LINK) published an article worth reading that discusses the financial state of most US States - bleeding red ink and virtually bankrupt. The only parallel that can be drawn is with America in the 1930's. Add to that increasing mandates of only partially funded federal programs that the States can't afford.
Illegal Aliens are a huge financial drain on many US States.
This is not a war to defend the nation against a foreign invader. In fact the barack hussein obama administration encourages illegal aliens to invade and occupy the United States - because once given amnesty, they are more likely to vote for a Democratic candidate. The US Department of Labor is PAYING for an outreach program where ILLEGAL ALIENS are encouraged to turn in their employers for underpaying them. It's interesting because employing them is a felony...presumably the Labor Department will not refer employers for employing them to the Justice Department for prosecution. There is no hint of aiding the states hardest hit by the depredations of illegal aliens that the Federal Government refuses to apprehend.
