Please attribute the following to Justice Department spokesman Devin O'Malley:

"The stay of the nationwide injunction granted last night by the Seventh Circuit is another major victory for the rule of law. When courts issue nationwide injunctions and order relief beyond the scope of a particular lawsuit, they overstep their role and improperly limit the government from functioning.

"The court order is also a victory for public safety, our nation's brave men and women of law enforcement, and the hundreds of jurisdictions across the country that make the common-sense commitment to help keep criminal aliens off their streets rather than endanger public safety by releasing them back into the community to further perpetrate crimes.

"After the stay was granted, the Justice Department promptly moved to begin the distribution of nearly $200 million in Byrne JAG funds to jurisdictions that share the Department's commitment to keeping criminal aliens off our streets and our law abiding citizens safe. Reviews of some applications remain ongoing."
