The Court's decision to take the case places a harsh spotlight on Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano for an apparent reversal on her views of how best to address immigration problems. It also puts added focus on Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan and her role as Solicitor General in asking the high court to take the case.
...The government's position puts Napolitano in the crosshairs of the controversy. The Obama Administration's brief to the high court comes from the Solicitor General's office but since Napolitano's agency is largely responsible for immigration policy the brief effectively represents her view that federal law should trump the state statute.
