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

It’s time to shut down the ICE fiasco and save the taxpayers a lot of money. ICE doesn’t do anything anyway.
Well imagine that............the feds not doing their jobs. I wonder when this started?
I would love to see several more states enact similar laws and then we would see what the stupid administrations next steps would be.
Arizona should secede
Put the ICE management in leg irons and send them to Gitmo.
Well, gee . . . If laws are meaningless, I guess I’ll use my Q1 estimated tax payment for something else.
This is insanity. Our federal government is declaring war on the citizens.
If this person is not going to do their job, they need to be fired...Also for this guys information ,there are already Federal laws..evidently he’s not obeying them either...
Do YOUR job Morton or go the hell home!!! You’re being paid way too many taxpayer dollars just to sit on your ass all day doing nothing!
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.
“AZ should put ALL federal tax recipts on hold until they do.....”
Sheriff Joe is going to need more tents.
if our government employees refuse to do their job, why are we paying them?
Put them in a big pen out in the desert and see how fast the bleeding heart libs come running to get them.
So, sue the feds. The left does that all the time; that’s how they get their way.
The plan from the feds? *crickets*
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?
