Update: 12/25: On Friday, the DOJ blocked South Carolina’s voter identification law. They claim it intentionally discriminates against minority voters. The only people it’s discriminating against are legitimate voters.

The DOJ has challenged immigration control laws in Arizona and Alabama and the administration has made it clear that it’s keeping a close eye on law enforcement agencies that may be viewed as targeting illegal aliens,according to the blogger at Judicial Watch, a non-profit, public interest group that investigates government corruption…
