Troops came into Arkansas to enforce federal law. They didn't arrest the Governer because he wasn't charged with a federal crime. If that failed to work DOJ could have filed charges and then arresting the Governer would have been valid.Did the troops arrest the governor or protect the children?
I liked the idea of cutting funding, but President can't do unilaterally. Do you like the idea of red states being able to ignore law and continue to disenfranchise its minority citizens? If you fail to crack Alabama upside the head, it sets a bad precedent, and they will try again in the future.
