Another Reason to Cheer for the Democrats Against Gonzales

Res Ipsa Loquitur has this "wonderful" quote from Alberto Gonzales, Bush's nominee for Attorney General:

There is no requirement, of course, upon state and locals to enforce federal immigration laws. It is purely voluntary. In fact, of course, some states have prohibitions. They couldn't, even if they wanted to. In some cases, the department, as I understand it, has entered into with state and local departments in terms of memorandums of understandings in order to enforce this. I certainly am sensitive to the notion that some local law enforcement people don't want to exercise this authority. Well, we're not saying that they have to. If they want to they can assist in fighting the war on terror, that's what this opinion allows us to do. Personally I would worry about a policy that permits someone, a local law enforcement official, to use this authority somehow as a club to harass uhh they might be unlawful aliens but otherwise lawful citizens. That would be troubling. That would be troubling to the President.

HELLO?!? NO THEY ARE NOT CITIZENS, LAWFUL OR OTHERWISE! Just remember, kiddos, this is the person that Bush etc. want to let be the top law enforcement officer in the country, stating right here his desire to avoid enforcing, and to stop other authorities from enforcing, our nation's immigration laws.

Do we really want him as our Attorney General? And then with a potential shot at the U. S. Supreme Court?

How can we help Joe Biden and the rest of the Senate Democrat clowns?
