Justice Dept. Will Sue Arizona Over SB 1070

To the surprise of virtually no one, it looks like the federal government will be filing a lawsuit against Arizona over SB 1070 soon. In an interview with Ecuadorean media, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton let it slip that a lawsuit over Arizona’s anti-immigrant bill will be happening:

I think the biggest surprise (at least to me) is that Secretary Clinton confirmed the news of a pending lawsuit to a reporter in Ecuador, even while the White House and the Justice Department has been exceptionally cautious to avoid tipping their hand on future plans. In fact, Justice Department spokesman Matt Miller refused to confirm Clinton’s statement, saying only “the Department continues to review the law.”
