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.

Under what conditions can the gov declare Martial law and call out the national guard?....Just looking toward the future.

If we dare to object and make it tough and noisy enough for them!

This gives another message to add to the slew of Eos:

What SCOTUS? There's ONLY POTUS!!

Arizona`s government officials need to continue to go through the motions of contacting the federal government on contact with each illegal found on their territory, and then broadcast PUBLICLY each week the statstics of illegals caught and reported under this new law, and subsequently released. In addition, they need to emphasize the refusal on the part of the criminal Obama regime to fulfill its requirement to act on each case.

A weekly drumbeat of this information may start focusing peoples` minds on this critical matter.

Since they are here illegally. Publish the names, address just like the newspapers publish the arrests and court cases in the local papers....Use the internet! Arrest if their DL etc are not in order. Judges still set bond. False papers are still fraud.

Back during the Civil Rights era, they declared war on a couple of Southern States. They used Federal Marshals and the National Guard, which had been Federalized and placed under Fed control. I don’t think it would be quite as easy now, and certainly would take a lot of resources.

So the Agriculture Dept. can suspend existing agreements with Georgia.

The IRS can suspend existing agreements with Florida.

The Pentagon can suspend existing agreements with California.

HUD can suspend existing agreements with Michigan.

Any existing agreement with any state can be suspended by the federal government for any reason.

Pray for America.

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.


Yup. And the media is urging him to ignore the SC if they make rulings against him. It no longer matters if the SC rules against obamacare, because obama will ignore the ruling. Deep down inside, we all know that. The courts announcement (if it’s anti-obama) at the end of the week is going to be absolutely meaningless. We are truly living in a dictatorship.

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

The Constitution died today. We are now the United STATE of America. Obama is officially a dictator and Americans are now the subjects of King Obama.

The Supreme Court just affirmed that fact and Chief Justice Roberts joined in the official dismantling of State Sovereignty.

No more United STATES (Plural). We are now one nation under Obama.

Arizona can sue until the cows come home. The Supreme Court has already spoken.

Who are they going to sue? And which court will hear it?

Give it up boys. We are now a dictatorship and the Supreme Court is now the rubber stamp for our Dictator.

Heil Obama!

The United STATE of America

True.

How in the world could a constructionist side with the notion that the executive, required by constitution to enforce the laws of the land, can whimsically pick his way through what he wishes to enforce and what he doesn't.

How could they say that a state enforcing law is violating the executive's whim to do nothing with the law?

This is a terrible ruling, and if it isn't the end of this nation as we know it, we'll have that end on Thursday, for if Roberts "ruled with business interests", then business interests include government health care, if it means getting health care costs off their own backs.

I am not at all optimistic about the Health Care ruling. Roberts joining in on this one striking down any semblance of States Rights tells me that he will be more than willing to declare the Health of Americans to be a compelling Federal Interest and that the States have no right to complain.

Today marked the final death blow to State Sovereignty. States are now entirely subservient to the Federal Government and effectively any law that the States pass will be unconstitutional as long as the President is against it.

America. It was a good idea. It's over. Turn out the lights.

Saw Sheriff Larry Dever (Cochise County, AZ) on Hannity tonight. He said that if ICE won’t respond to them, they’ll pack up the illegals, drop them on their doorstep and say, “YOU deal with them”. Guess he’ll do that as often as needed.

The other thing that scares me is the fact that not all that come illegaly are mexicans. Prayer rugs and korans have been found.

b0nehead HAS to go. It’s darn scary here. More and more illegals are going to feel *empowered and much bolder* by this. Most Arizonans don’t have security personnel like the pampered princes in D.C.

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.

So the state of Arizona has lost all rights to protect it’s sovereignty? OUTRAGEOUS!

Not quite all of them:

U.S Constitution, Article I, Section 10:

No state shall, without the consent of Congress, lay any duty of tonnage, keep troops, or ships of war in time of peace, enter into any agreement or compact with another state, or with a foreign power, or engage in war, unless actually invaded, or in such imminent danger as will not admit of delay.

” - - - I am not at all optimistic about the Health Care ruling. Roberts joining in on this one striking down any semblance of States Rights tells me that he will be more than willing to declare the Health of Americans to be a compelling Federal Interest and that the States have no right to complain.”

Obama”care” is the Death Knell for the United States of America.

The USA Federal Government is broke, and is forced to borrow 3 1/2 BILLION dollars from our grandchildren EVERY DAY!

This then is the Federal Grandchildren Tax, or FGT, separate from the FIT or Federal Income Tax that only 51 % of us pay.

2012 is the third year of the American Taxpayer Revolt, in spite of what our sorry politicians and apathetic Liberal Agenda Media try to tell us.

The Silent Majority is silent no more.

If Romney is elected he has promised to “keep the best parts” of Obama”care” and send it back to each of the 50 States, resulting in the Death Knell of each of the 50 States that choose to keep the Obama”care” Death Knell.

Right now there is a 50-50 chance that Obama will get re-elected.

No matter that Obama was the worst Federal Financial Steward EVER!

If Obama gets re-elected he will just declare, by Executive Order, that Obama”care” is legal, and thus the demise of America will be accomplished during his Reign of Obamanation.

If THE NINE SUPREMES knock down ANY part of Obama”care,” then Senate Minority Leader Son-of-a-Mitch McConnell and Esteemed Sobber-of-the-House Boehner will rush to replace the Court-damaged parts of America’s Death Knell.

The only possible positive outcome will be to ABOLISH FOREVER Obama”care.”

America cannot afford to continue Federal programs to buy votes with debt that we charge to our Grandchildren.

BTW, it is all very simple as illustrated by the words of Paul Harvey: “ WHEN YOUR OUTGO EXCEEDS YOUR INCOME, YOUR UPKEEP WILL BE YOUR DOWNFALL.”

Consider, though, what would've happened had Roberts stood with Scalia, Alioto and Thomas on the Arizona SB 1070 decision.

The outcome then would've been a 4-4 tie. Which would've left the 9th Circuit court's decision standing intact -- and the entirety of SB 1070 declared unconstitutional.

Did he vote as he did in order to salvage what he could? I don't know. But it makes for a certain logic...

Brewer would need to first purge the officer core of their National guard of traitorous officers who might traitorously show deference to Federal athoirty.

We cannot blindly ignore what has been done to the militia over the last 100 years. We have the power to undo it but that power requires asserting our rights and controlling the composition of the State defense forces.

Do you have any idea what philosophy of constitutional interpretation Roberts and Kennedy were using? I expect the liberals to just do what they feel like, but what in the world did Roberts base this on????

My only hope is that he felt like being some kind of parent, so he doled out a win for them on this so he could give a loss to them on ObamaCare.

It is insane that the court just decided that American law is subject, not to the letter of the law or even to the spirit of the law, but to presidential whim.
