Simpson Backs Arizona Immigration Law

A state-by-state solution is not the "ultimate solution" to the immigration problem, says Rep. Mike Simpson. Nonetheless, the Idaho Republican is siding with Arizona in its court battle with the U.S. Justice Department. He is writing a court brief siding with the state — and its strict immigration law. “The Arizona situation is an example of what happens when the federal government fails to secure our borders or address illegal immigration,” Simpson said today/Kevin Richert, Statesman.

Question: Richert adds a quote in which Demo Walt Minnick expresses his opposition to the try by the U.S. Justice Department to stop the Arizona law from taking effect. What do you think of this bipartisan support for the Arizona law from Idaho's congressmen?
