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 wont change President Obamas 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 wont be boosting personnel to handle the new calls.
We do not plan on putting additional staff on the ground in Arizona, the official said.

this is getting to be like a bad dream
This is obama’s version of gloating and taunting.
Arrest them and hold them until the Feds deport them.
Bastards! God help us all if we can’t de-elect this gang of swine in Nov.
Dont call INS in these matters: instead purchase illegal immigrants a one-way bus ticket to some “sanctuary city” like San Francisco.
F Big Sis.
Kinda like spiking the football, which Republicans have been ordered not to do...
Lawless bastard enabled by Kennedy and Roberts both. Aholes.
Obamah implements Open Border in AZ!
I wonder if this action by dear Preezy Trayvon Obamugabe will result in a tear or two trickling down Boehner’s yellow face (and yellow-belly).
Rule by Executive Tantrum!

I LIKE it! And one heck of a lot cheaper than arresting and incarcerating them. Just set up a check-in booth near the border. No questions asked, here’s your bus ticket to San Fransicko, oh yes, please don’t come back.
In the event this bastard Obama isn’t re-elected, I wouldn;t put it past him and his supporters to stage a civil war to try and keep him in pawer.
He is a dangerous demagogue, a narcissistic sociopath in my book. Obama is the very kind of individual the Founding Fathers were anticipating when they created the Bill of Rights and the separation of powers concept.
It appears that SCOTUS has determined that the States do not have the authority to cary out the responsibilities of the Federal Government in the event the individual running the Federal Government elects not to do so.
So, Federal Law reamins in the pruview of the Federal Government entirely.
We need another amendment to the Constitution which states in effect that if a Federal Law or Statute exists, and the individual running the Federal Government - like this villain - elects to ignore his responsibility in enforcing said statue or law may be enforced by the States.
Not a bad idea. They want them, let them have them.
plus, when Arpaio detains them, then the ACLU whines that they don’t have nice enough facilities.
ship them to where they’re welcomed and adored.
If AZ holds them, who will pay for building the new jails they’re going to need.
Brewer needs to announce that no state police will enforce any federal law.
