A bit ironic.

State Treasurer Dean Martin (yes, that is his name and no, he is not that Dean Martin), recently resubmitted some bills to the U.S. government. According to Martin and the bills, which amount to about one billion dollars, the Federal Government owes Arizona for costs associated with incarcerating illegal aliens, since it is a legal requirement.

Since the Federal government has yet to pay what the law requires for the incarceration of illegals, Martin is going to let the Director of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano, know that these bills need to be paid.

The irony, these are the same bills that Napolitano repeatedly submitted to the Federal Government when she was governor.

If asking her doesn't help, I guess Arizona is going to have to take them to collections or something.
