Arizona gets tough legislation about illegal aliens

The legislation sent to the Republican Governor by their Legislature, makes it a crime under state law to be in the country illegally. It also requires local police officers to question people about their immigration status it there is a reason to suspect they are illegal immigrants;allows lawsuits against government agencies that hinder enforcement of immigration laws; and makes it illegal to hire illegal immigrants for day labor or knowingly transport them.

Obama called the Arizona bill misguided and instructed the Justice Department to examine it to see if it's legal.

These are quotes from an article in the Review Journal. While I like the law, I have to wonder why we need it. Just enforce the laws we have. What part of illegal don't they understand? Also, why is Obama fighting laws that enforce existing laws?
