What part of “illegal” don’t you understand? Those who ask this question profess a deep devotion to law and order. But “solutions” to illegal immigration that rely on self-deportation (Mitt Romney) and attrition through enforcement (Russell Pearce) represent a very real threat to public safety. That’s the message from former Arizona Attorneys General Terry Goddard, Grant Woods and Bruce Babbitt — along with 41 other former attorneys general from around the country. They filed a friend of the court brief with the U.S. Supreme Court, which will hear arguments about Arizona’s immigration law, the infamous Senate Bill 1070, on April 25. SB 1070 is the poster child of attrition through enforcement, also known in Romney-esque euphemism as self-deportation. The law was championed by Pearce when he was Big Man at the Legislature. He got help writing it from Kris Kobach, who is Kansas secretary of state and a prominent Romney supporter.
