As noted at The Left Coaster the issue from the administration perspective is not about the dollar penalties that might be assessed. It is about covering the administration’s ass.

It is not as if the democratic party has ever been all about respect for individuals and their rights both real and as expressed in the constitution. Quite the contrary.
