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.

It’s time to shut down the ICE fiasco and save the taxpayers a lot of money. ICE doesn’t do anything anyway.

I would love to see several more states enact similar laws and then we would see what the stupid administrations next steps would be.

Well, gee . . . If laws are meaningless, I guess I’ll use my Q1 estimated tax payment for something else.

Grab your pitchforks and torches bookmark.....
Oh, why bother. I’ll just hire someone in front of Home Depot to do it for me, and I’ll get back to work. Got to support the welfare state, don’t have time to protest with all these new taxes and price increases in the worker’s paradise.

With upwards of 80% support among citizens of the USA of AZ immigration law this is incrediably stupid move on Obama’s part. Guess we all need to ramp up the anto Obama message pointing out that the Congressional dems stood for the illegals and not the citizens?
