BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — The Justice Department said Tuesday it was establishing its first civil rights unit in Alabama, a move that comes after the state’s crackdown on illegal immigration raised broader concerns about compliance with federal laws.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Tom Perez said the unit will ensure that the federal government has a continuing eye on civil rights issues in Alabama, which was a hotbed of unrest during the civil rights movement half a century ago.

Doug Jones — a former U.S. attorney who prosecuted the final two Ku Klux Klan members convicted in a church bombing that killed four black girls in 1963 — said the Justice Department never before had a civil rights unit based in the state. During the civil rights era and afterward, he said, civil rights laws were narrower in scope and such cases were mainly overseen from Washington with assistance from local federal prosecutors and investigators.

So, let me get this straight. When black CITIZENS were being lynched, churches bombed, hosed by police, and attacked by their dogs, those actions did NOT warrant a civil rights unit in Alabama. But, after the passage of an anti-illegal immigration law that targets foreign invaders, now they DO need a special civil rights unit? I'm absolutely speechless.

Illegals seem to have more rights than citizens and have more government officials protecting their rights and insuring that no citizen infringes on their rights.

Got it ?

As am I. This tyranny and distortion of our laws just gets worse everyday.
