…..for any proof that those Alabamans are racists.
Perez, as longtime readers know, is a former CASA de Maryland board member and Maryland’s official gift to Obama (and Eric Holder, of course).
He has now set up a hotline so that abused illegal immigrants can call in complaints to his department. Maybe it would be fun to call in in support of Alabama! LOL! I bet many of the thousand calls and e-mails already received were from folks telling Perez/Holder and Obama to get off the backs of states, like Alabama, that are just trying to get their own illegal alien problems under control.
From the Birmingham News:
BIRMINGHAM, Alabama — U.S. Justice Department officials from Washington, D.C., are back in Birmingham today for meetings with business and community leaders as they continue to look for possible civil rights violations related to enforcement of Alabama’s new immigration law that targets illegal immigrants.
Tom Perez, assistant attorney general of the civil rights division of the U.S. Justice Department, said at a press briefing that the department has had more than a thousand calls and emails to the hotline and email address the department set up to receive reports of problems immigrants illegally in the United States may be experiencing.
The hot line is 1-855-353-1010 or a web site to report problems is Hb56@usdoj.gov.
Meetings with business leaders and others in Birmingham were, in typical Obama transparency fashion, closed to the public!
By the way, I wonder if Perez’s lust to get Alabama has anything to do with the fact that Senator Jeff Sessions (of Alabama) attempted to hold up Perez’s nomination for the Justice Department citing his advocacy position with CASA de Maryland as one reason he would not mete out justice fairly.
