    Pretty strong opinion piece, but interesting read.
    EXCLUSIVE: Who is Harold Hurtt? Meet the Immigration Enforcement Foe . . . Who Wants to be ICE’s Public Face

    ="In August 2006, Hurtt testified before Congress, saying cops should not assist with arresting illegal aliens."

    I think Az is in for more bashing.

    If you need more information, might I suggest you go out and find it yourself.

    Absolutely!
    And the source is all-important...
    Good luck..
    No to MSNBC
    No to Fox
    Maybe to PBS
    No man has the time/temperament to read all of this; I'd stay clear of those networks who have sold their soul to the misinformation devil.

    I remember hearing Hurtt talk about this and the OP article confirmed what I remembered. Hurtt was doing his job as Police Chief of the Houston Police Department



    Quote Originally Posted by Article
    Kelly Nantel, a spokeswoman for ICE, told FoxNews.com that Hurtt has always been a proponent of the jail model of the 287(g) program, which gives local police authority to initiate deportation proceedings against illegal immigrants linked to serious crimes -- but as a police chief, he didn't favor more proactive local enforcement because he didn't believe it was the best utilization of his resources.
    Here are some of Hurtt's comments from the U.S. HOUSE COMMITTEE HEARING Immigration hearings in Houston in 2006.

    Houston will have to add thousands of police officers if an immigration bill approved by the U.S. House of Representatives becomes law, Chief Harold Hurtt told members of a House subcommittee Wednesday.

    "We would need between 2,000 and 2,500 more officers for immigration enforcement," Hurtt testified in a hearing on immigration reform at the new Harris County Civil Courthouse downtown.

    Hurtt and City Councilman Adrian Garcia took aim at a provision in the House bill, sponsored by Rep. John Culberson, R-Houston, that would cut federal funding to police departments that refuse to enforce immigration laws.

    Hurtt called the provision "misguided and wrong," saying immigration enforcement would draw police away from more serious crimes.

    Garcia said immigration enforcement would turn a 15-minute traffic stop into an hourlong ordeal and add paperwork, as officers were forced to comply with laws preventing them from stopping people solely because of race or ethnicity.

    What a disturbing statement.

    This is interesting opinion. So who decides what is unbiased news? Would also support "very liberal people" need to go?
    Back to the orginal OP. Time will tell if Hurtt will be unbiased and actually enforce the laws. He was for sancturary cities and has stated before Congress that local law enforcement should not be involved in immigration. That is fine if the Feds will step up and take care if the issue.
