Hillary Clinton on Arizona’s SB1070 : Justice Department Will Sue

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton recently appeared on Ecuador’s public service station Ecuador TV (started with funding by the Economic and Social Development Bank of Venezuela), where she was asked about Arizona’s racist SB1070.

According to the Secretary of State, the Department of Justice will seek a lawsuit against the state of Arizona’s racist law. This statement has angered Arizona Governor Jan Brewer.

Republican Governor Brewer issued a statement that could possibly have some traces of backhanded racism:

To learn of this lawsuit through an Ecuadorean interview with the secretary of state is just outrageous,” she said. “If our own government intends to sue our state to prevent illegal immigration enforcement, the least it can do is inform us before it informs the citizens of another nation.”
