The Saipan Tribune is reporting that Governor Benigno R. Fitial of the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI) announced that he had hired the law firm of Jenner & Block to review a draft complaint to challenge the new U.S. immigration law enacted for the Northern Marianas. The complaint was drafted by Howard Willens, one of the governor's legal counsels. Governor Fitial said he will file suit against the United States unless the Chicago-based law firm tells him not to do so.
