RUSH: Yesterday in Washington, the lawsuit the feds have filed against Arizona over the immigration bill, the federal government is saying, ‘You can’t usurp our laws, you can’t do that. This is a federal requirement, a federal law, you can’t go out and do what we’re supposed to do. We’re in charge of it.’ And somebody said, ‘Well, what about sanctuary cities?’ I mean sanctuary cities are cities that allow illegals in, in violation of federal law. Why are they not under attack? Governor Jan Brewer of Arizona brought that up. An unidentified female reporter asked that question to the White House press secretary Robert Gibbs in the daily press briefing yesterday.
REPORTER: There are dozens of so-called sanctuary cities that have their own policies that might potentially conflict with federal law, something that’s led Governor Brewer to say that if Arizona is in violation of federal law then so are these localities. So my question is why did the president only ask DOJ to look at Arizona and not everywhere?
GIBBS: Let me see if I can get — I don’t know the answer to that but I will try to seek some, uh, some answer on, uh, some answer on that. I don’t know.
RUSH: (imitating Gibbs) ‘I don’t know.’ He doesn’t know. ‘I don’t know why sanctuary cities are fine, but Arizona is not. I’m going to have to look into that. I don’t know.’ What do you bet we never — well, we’ll probably get some convoluted answer to it if somebody brings it up again.
