Skip to comments.Homeland Security suspends immigration agreements with Ariz. police
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 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.

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.
The American people should sleep well tonight. Obama has unleashed more terror on the Arizona border.
Of course, the real bad guys, that cross into the USA from down there, are just giddy. They know that the sheep sleep with no knowledge that they exist.
Obama knows...Holder knows...Hillary knows...
Pray for our Country
” - - - 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.”
Obamacare 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 Obamacare 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 Obamacare 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 Obamacare 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 Obamacare, 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 Americas Death Knell.
The only possible positive outcome will be to ABOLISH FOREVER Obamacare.
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.
well they’ve been invaded. call out the az militia.
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...
Hence the qualifier, ‘constitutionally’.
That’s exactly what Arizona should do; Call out their National Guard. Let Obama send in his gay Federal troops and let the games begin.
Might as well, Obama and the leftist that support him have decided they don’t want a country(which has borders) at all.
By letting everyone just walk in, work, and stay as long as they like.
“Thats exactly what Arizona should do; Call out their National Guard. Let Obama send in his gay Federal troops and let the games begin.”
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.
You are absolutely right. Put the facts out in some hard hitting ads. I suggest a few shots of the rape trees, a few stats on the crime levels, along with pictures of one or more “Willie Horton” illegals and their victims. Unforgettable.
Arizona, New Mexico and Texas need to join together and put their State National Guard troops on the border, and deputize thousands of volunteers to stem the flow of illegals. Any illegals caught are forced to walk back into Mexico. Forget ICE--they won't do nayhting but release them away from the border in OUR country, just for spite.Funding is achieved by skimming the costs off the state gasoline taxes.
The welfare of every citizen in the Southwest has now been deliberately compromised by the Federal government.By extension the safety of every other citizen has been compromised.There is now a real showdown of power taking place--it is no longer theory. Obama is now officially lawless and must be countered.
We will loose the Southwest and part of the west coast soon.
Southern Texas is already lost for the most part. Had family down there, they pulled out and went north. They are thinking of jumping again to North Dakota.
The federal agency also announced the nationwide suspension of the program, saying it would no longer sign new agreements with state and local law enforcement agencies.
Put Illegals in orange jumpsuits, film Arizona LE advising ICE they are transporting prisoners, then have the cameras rolling when a busload are dropped off at ICE and they refuse to take them. Then get a restraining order from the Ninth Circus.
I am assuming that the US Federal Government will suffer the same fate as the present Greek Government.
I am assuming that we have less than 10 years before China stops buying our US Bonds, which are currently used to pay for our Keynesian Welfare system.
As the US Federal Government continues to Nationalize Private Businesses, the Keynesian Fecal Federal Finger of Debt will rapidly increase the politicians desire to cover their financial debts by increasing the Nationalization of Private Businesses.
During this time US Corporate flight to Business-friendly Nations will be swift.
Hence, the expense of a standing Army with very expensive Drones to control the unemployed population, will diminish the ability of these Public Servant Federal Politicians to interfere with our State Constitutional Conventions to choose what multi-State Regions will make up the former USA.
Like it or not, the US Federal Government Debt Bubble will burst within the next 10 years as quickly as the Federal Housing Debt Bubble burst in September, 2008.
In 2008 and 2009, only 30 % of the wealth in the World was destroyed.
WHEN YOUR OUTGO EXCEEDS YOUR INCOME, YOUR UPKEEP WILL BE YOUR DOWNFALL. (PAUL HARVEY)
I don't want them in NY.
Send them to Montana.
Your equally pathetic senators and the people who vote for them in Montana might want them.
I knew a New yorker was gonna be pissed by my comment. 1/2 of my customer base is NY and Ontario conservatives, (mostly) and I truly love your attitude. CA,OR and WA libs have been flooding to Western Montana. Very sad. I may head back to remote Alaska and GTFA from all these lefty idiots.
