The Justice Department has contacted the state of Arizona’s attorney general, and aides to the governor, in an attempt to avoid a federal lawsuit over Arizona’s new immigration law. The Justice Department wanted to let the parties know they are prepared to go to court if necessary. In response, Arizona’s attorney general said "I told them we need solutions from Washington, not more lawsuits . . . ."
The response from Arizona’s governor was similar, as her legal team told the Justice Department that they would defend the newly passed law all the way to the Supreme Court if necessary. The Justice Department, among other concerned parties, fears that the newly passed law will lead to widespread racial profiling.
