Homeland Security suspends immigration agreements with Ariz. police
The Washington Times ^ | June 25,2012 | By Stephen Dinan

Posted on 06/25/2012 11:31:56 AM PDT by Hojczyk

The Obama administration said Monday it is suspending existing agreements with Arizona police over enforcement of federal immigration laws, and said it has issued a directive telling federal authorities to decline many of the calls reporting illegal immigrants that the Homeland Security Department may get from Arizona police.

Administration officials, speaking on condition they not be named, told reporters they expect to see an increase in the number of calls they get from Arizona police — but that won’t change President Obama’s decision to limit whom the government actually tries to detain and deport.

“We will not be issuing detainers on individuals unless they clearly meet our defined priorities,” one official said in a telephone briefing.

The official said that despite the increased number of calls, which presumably means more illegal immigrants being reported, the Homeland Security Department is unlikely to detain a significantly higher number of people and won’t be boosting personnel to handle the new calls.

Direct violation of the oath of office on the part of every cabinet member and Obama himself.

Every one of them should be arrested.

Now that Obama lost that provision, he is faced with the option of refusing to enforce the law. That gets rather sticky.

Constitutionally he’s required to accept every one of these reports. He can’t ‘refuse to hear them except for the ones based on his priority.’

AZ should be able to sue the Federal government over selective compliance.

Federal officials said they’ll still perform the checks as required by law but will respond only when someone has a felony conviction on his or her record. Absent that, ICE will tell the local police to release the person.

Why, he’s flaunted the law since being elected.As long as we retain these parasites from both parties, we’re screwed. Look at Rubio, a Tea Party favorite, and how soon he changed.

And now all these employees (did they have to swear to uphold the laws) of ICE/Homeland Security or whatever will be breaking the law, as well.

And if the Congress and Senate don’t do something about it, they would appear to be complicit. (I have no idea what they can or should do about it, BTW.)

I am sick of our politicians pandering to law breakers, they selectively pick and choose which laws they want to follow, so, we as American citizens no longer have to follow the law according to our leaders! They have betrayed the American citizen, this is a constitutional crisis, the law is being selectively followed, it has lost all relevance! When is Mexico going to grant foreigners citizenship, health care, lower tuition, drivers licenses? The answer is never, they will arrest you and deport you! Blacks and young Americans should be furious, the unemployment rate is at 10%, and now they are having to compete with illegals for the scarce jobs available! I don’t care if you are a Republican or a Democrat, this is treason!

I think their defined priority is to not arrest illegals. Unless they’re clearly Muslim terrorists, but maybe not even then. Who knows?

At what point will the states tell the feds to play in the street. The states need to say “fine we will not send you any more tax revenue”. It’s getting close to picking which side you are on.

“IMPEACH.”

He is not legally president; therefore, he can’t be impeached.

He can be put away in the slammer directly.

For starters, if Homeland Security is no longer enforcing immigration laws, it certainly doesn't need as big a budget. Let the cutting begin! (At least that would be my approach if I were Speaker.)

This is actually becoming comical. Imagine (I know it’s hard) that you are a Supreme Court Justice and you just ruled that 3 out of 4 provisions of Arizona law are not enforceable because they are the province of the Federal Government.

You’ve had to ignore the fact that the Federal Government has systematically refused to enforce those laws. You feel good about yourself because you left in place a law that Arizona can enforce - they can arrest illegals and turn them over to - guess who? - the Federal Government.

And now you hear that, surprise, surprise, the Federal Government isn’t going to send these illegals back to their true home country, once again as a matter of policy. So your favorable ruling vis a vis Arizona has just been wiped out by a few words from the White House.

So sleep well members of the Court - if you can. You have screwed up Big Time once again and we now have yet another example of the lack of the rule of law in this country. The law has turned out to be whatever Obama says it is. The power of the Supreme Court (and Congress for that matter) is null and void.

Arrest them for identity theft if they ‘have’ ID. They did not obtain it legally. That is a crime in AZ.

End all tax remittance to fedgov to cover detention costs. Make them make foo;s of themselves in an election year. Make them sue. Make them threaten.

They really want to f**k that state up, don’t they? I guess Obama, as he makes a play for AZ in November, thinks he’s going to leverage enough hispanic votes to make up for however many Anglos he loses.

Arizona should have all federal income taxes to be paid by its citizens in 2012 to be held in escrow until the contract that is the Constitution is fulfilled by the other party..

As a matter of fact, all states should do this...

Question for the legally erudite amongst us:

Suppose an individual is arrested for XXXX violation of AZ state law, and incidental to the arrest it is determined that the person is not here legally, or at a minimum, can not establish that they are not here legally.

Even if ICE refuses to take custody of the person, what's to keep an Arizona Judge from refusing bail on the state charge, given that one's illegal status presupposes a flight risk?

I would think that even those proposing immigration reform that includes amnesty should be frightened by this. First, it gives a pass to illegal immigrants who have only been vetted by Los Zetas. Second, and by far most important, Obama is nullifying a Supreme Court decision by executive edict. Even FDR didn’t dare go this far.

I wonder what BHO has planned if he loses some part or all if the Obamacare decision?

You are right.

All that it will take is one Willie Horton to sink Obama.

The DNC will cry ‘racism’, but voters value their safety way, way above their need to appear policially correct.

“Now that Obama lost that provision, he is faced with the option of refusing to enforce the law. That gets rather sticky.”

If my memory serves, this president has never concerned himself with the law; enforcing it or following it. And I don't see much opposition from Republicans, the kneepad media, or even ‘conservative’ talk show hosts.

Maybe things will change but thus far 0 has had carte blanche in finishing this country off.

What would be a clearly met defined priority? I guess illegal entry into the country wouldn’t be one. Perhaps double ax murder? Being a Republican?
