    Top Official Says Feds May Not Process Illegals Referred From Arizona

    Link

    Updated May 21, 2010

    A top Department of Homeland Security official reportedly said his agency will not necessarily process illegal immigrants referred to them by Arizona authorities.

    A top Department of Homeland Security official reportedly said his agency will not necessarily process illegal immigrants referred to them by Arizona authorities.
    John Morton, assistant secretary of homeland security for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, made the comment during a meeting on Wednesday with the editorial board of the Chicago Tribune, the newspaper reports.
    "I don't think the Arizona law, or laws like it, are the solution," Morton told the newspaper.
    The best way to reduce illegal immigration is through a comprehensive federal approach, he said, and not a patchwork of state laws.
    The law, which criminalizes being in the state illegally and requires authorities to check suspects for immigration status, is not "good government," Morton said.
    Well so they may decide not to enforce federal law against illegal aliens. This is great, and supports the conclusion that the Feds won't do anything.....as usual.

    Their stupidity knows no bounds.

    The federal law is even LESS restrictive than Arizona!

    Muehler, Darin v. Mena, Iris (03/22/2005) | On the Docket

    WHAT?S THE BEEF WITH AZ? FEDERAL LAW IS MUCH STRICTER. - Patriotic Resistance

    Federal law says you can be pulled over for any reason and asked for immigration papers, which is much stronger than Arizona law. So why are Liberals applauding the Mexican president for trashing the Arizona law. Why are Cities like LA and San Francisco not boycotting Washington DC instead of Arizona? This is hypocrisy at its worst!

    William H. Renquist Majority Opinion
    Muehler, Darin v. Mena, Iris (03/22/2005)

    As to the court’s holding that Mena’s detention itself was performed in an unreasonable manner, Kleinfeld cited the Supreme Court’s decision in Michigan v. Summers, which established that "a warrant to search for contraband founded on probable cause implicitly carries with it the limited authority to detain the occupants of the premises while a proper search is conducted."

    While the Summers opinion allows that unusual circumstances, such as a prolonged detention, might constitute a 4th Amendment violation, Kleinfeld argued that the Mena case did not represent such a case. "Under Mena," Kleinfeld wrote, "it is hard to see how police officers could ever conduct a safe and effective search of a home pursuant to a valid search warrant."

    Perhaps we should vote in statesmen who will enforce current federal law....


    So every far left nutball going after Arizona doesn't have a CLUE that the federal law ALLOWS the police to not only pull illegals over but pull them over on nothing more than the suspicion that they ARE Illegal! No traffic stop or other crime is necessary!

    Sure would help Obama out if he actually pretended to have a law degree and read up on the law itself before looking like a complete moron.




    Again.

    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

    Per your article:

    "ICE has the legal discretion to accept or not to accept persons delivered to it by non-federal personnel," Napolitano said. "It also has the discretion to deport or not to deport persons delivered to it by any government agents, even its own."
    The AZ law will be a test case. I think it's an imperfect one-size-fits-all approach that may run into problems with even the most conservative of Federal courts.

    Also, per the article "may"...

    Everyone knows the AZ. law only mirror the federal laws. That being said the federal government must also be a poopie-racist. Someone said once, " The best way to get a law repealed is to enforce it".

    Lastly, why is it legal to kill a home invader and not a nation invader?
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.

    Because "nation invaders" are not threatening you or anyone else.

    That would be a pretty stupid move on their part.
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    Okay, so one of two things is happening...

    Either the Federal Governments is derelict in its own duties and those allowing it to be so are violating their oath of office by not upholding the constitution by protecting the sovereignty and safety of this country and its states and as such those officials should be expelled.

    Or

    The Federal Government is saying it has no constitutional right or responsibility to protect the sovereignty and safety of this country and its states and as such cedes that power to the states and should but the hell out of it.
