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

Posted on 06/25/2012 11:30:07 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

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.

“We do not plan on putting additional staff on the ground in Arizona,” the official said.

This is obama’s version of gloating and taunting.

Arrest them and hold them until the Feds deport them.

Don’t call INS in these matters: instead purchase illegal immigrants a one-way bus ticket to some “sanctuary city” like San Francisco.

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).

Arizona should tell Obama that they are no longer paying federal taxes, and won't help the government to prosecute tax evasion.

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.

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.

The recklessness of this group of outlaws will only ramp up this summer if they start to figure he isn’t winning in Nov. This dude is NOT going quietly. He’s going to lash out at every section of American life and destroy whatever he can. I just can’t imagine what a second term, without re-election worries, would look like. Breathtakingly scary.

I don’t understand why the taxpayers cannot sue the feds for refusing to do the job we are paying them to do. We should at least be able to fire those lazy bass turds and hire some illegals to do it.

Those unmanned observation drones and armed drones flying all over the US aren’t there to monitor Muslims. Ditto the hardened security facilities as well as the paramilitary police forces and agencies established by this character and his immediate predecessor. And now TSA has expanded its authority to all forms of public transportation.

This is indeed frightening.

You are fortunate you are in North Dakota. Its closer to the Canadian border.

Barbed wire, razor wire, tarps and wooden poles are cheap. So are cheap bunk beds, a blanket, baloney, water, and past due date bread.

Civil war, secession, and widespread violence are coming to a once peaceful America. This Administration and it's enablers in the Courts, Congress, and the media are assuring it will happen. In fact, they are promoting it at warp speed. Meanwhile, the Islamists, Commies, and Chinese are rubbing their hands in glee at the prospect of destroying the Great Satan and dividing up the loot of this great land among themselves.

This country is going to fly apart into pieces if 0baMao is reelected. If he isn't, His People will burn the cities to the ground. Either way, we are in for anguish on a scale unseen since 1861.

I am still not convinced there will BE another election but if there is, the Marxists will win by theft/election fraud.

In my opinion, we have already gone over the proverbial cliff and no matter who is elected, the damage cannot be undone.

The next time the Federales refuse to take the call, just tell them that their precious illegal will be waiting for them in one of Sheriff Joe's tent camps wearing pink underwear and eating bologna sandwiches.

But you're not sure just which one.

Maybe not the Chinese. They are smart enough to understand that they won't get paid back if the country is looted and denigrated to third world status.

“I am still not convinced there will BE another election “

I think thre will be another election.

“the Marxists will win by theft/election fraud.”

Only if the results are close. They can always “manufacture” votes in the big cities. They have been doing it for decades.

“no matter who is elected, the damage cannot be undone.”

Don’t dispair. Our dispair is one of their best weapons. Never give up and always fight back. I think we can win this because logic always triumphs over insanity, particularly whne you have God on your side. And, in the outside chance we don;t beat them, we can make them pay very ddearly.

Serious question: At what point can a State, such as AZ, sue the Federal Government or INS or whatever agency appropriate for malfeasance?

A state and its citizens pay money to the federal government in return for services. Isnt' this order a violation of that?

It won’t work, S.F. would only send tham back along with their own illegals and Arizona would be prohibited by the U.S. from stopping them at the state border.

Of course, the bus companies would appreciate the additional passengers.

Despair, probably not, but I am thoroughly disgusted and sickened by our leaders. They should be in prison or swinging from a rope, not leading the greatest nation on earth.

Arizona, and every other state that can show that they are harmed by the refusal of the Obama administration to enforce existing immigration law, should file a “writ of mandamus” in federal court to force the administration to enforce all of the existing immigration laws passed by Congress.
