ASSOCIATED PRESS Arizona Rep. Russell Pearce, who wrote the state's tough immigration legislation, has filed a "motion to intervene" against the White House's challenge of the new law.
"The purpose of SB 1070 is to protect the citizens of Arizona from the devastating and deadly impact of rampant illegal immigration. And it is outrageous that the Obama administration would attack Arizona for simply protecting its own citizens, especially when it has failed so miserably to do its constitutional duty and secure the border. This is a legal battle of epic proportions," Mr. Pearce says.
