Last Friday, U.S. Senators Jim DeMint (R-SC), David Vitter (R-LA) and Jeff Sessions (R-Alabama) announced they will soon offer legislation to prohibit President Obama’s administration, including the Department of Justice (DOJ) and other agencies, from participating in lawsuits against South Carolina, Alabama and Arizona over recently passed immigration laws.

Inside sources say that the bill will be offered within 7 – 10 days. We need to alert Congress to get them to Co-Sponsor this very important legislation—so that Mr. Obama does not control every piece of immigration legislation in every state!

On October 28, 2011, the Associated Press reported: “U.S. Border Patrol has quietly stopped its controversial practice of routinely searching buses, trains and airports for illegal immigrants at transportation hubs along the northern border and in the nation’s interior, preventing agents from using what had long been an effective tool for tracking down people here illegally… agents said it was an effective way to catch unlawful immigrants, including smugglers and possible terrorists, who had evaded detection at the border, as well as people who had overstayed their visas. Often, those who evade initial detection head quickly for the nearest public transportation in hopes of reaching other parts of the country.
