Why is Obama wasting the taxpayer's money fighting an Alabama immigration law that does the job he won't do?
The federal government is filing suit to block Alabama's controversial immigration reform law.
The suit, filed in U.S. District Court by the U.S. Department of Justice, names the State of Alabama and Governor Robert Bentley as defendants. The DOJ accuses the defendants of violating the Supremacy Clause of the U.S. Constitution which gives the federal government authority to create and enforce immigration-related laws.

The Obama administration has deported a record number of illegal aliens, more the President Bush or any other previous President. The argument that he isn't doing anything about illegal immigration is a right wing lie that people that are gullible swallow because the hate this President.
The President also took an oath that said he would, "preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States." Conservatives are quick to accuse him of violating the Constitution, but when he tries to enforce the Constitution against states that violate it those same conservatives cry foul! He has an obligation to defend the Constitution even when you favor the unconstitutional law.
In short he is doing his job; both in his record setting enforcement of immigration laws and his defense of the Constitution against States passing unconstitutional legislation.
