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.

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.
I know nully, but if things are going to get that bad, I figure I’ll be dead before the US storm troopers cross my border.
God bless us, every one.
"Lame duck" is going to be one long attempt to hurt America as badly as possible.
Obama becomes more of a joke every day. He will be listed historically as America's worst president by any measurement or standard you want to use.
We’ll try to keep it from getting that far.
The depends entirely on who writes the history books.
If he succeeds in bringing down The Great Satan, his praises will be sung in every mosque for a thousand years.
What higher number of calls? Are these people lying?
You're just seeing the tip of the iceberg with Obama. Wait until you figure out what he has planned for later.
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.
Good will prevail.
No matter how corny it sounds.
-- that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain --and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.
President Abraham Lincoln.
Constitutionally hes required to accept every one of these reports. He cant refuse to hear them except for the ones based on his priority.
Yes he can. He’s the King of the U.S. He answers to no one.
If that bastard is this brazen BEFORE the election, imagine what he will be like if he wins in November.
This is what is left after decades of selective enforcement. (mho) It is soon be become worse.

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.
I am sure someone has pointed out by now that Arizona has no sovereignty.
And it should be continued to be pointed out
The local police should hold the person until ICE signs for them. Let the release responsibility be on the FedGov / Obama Administration’s head.
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.
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.
Are Obama and friends giving Arizona the finger?
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.
Actually he will be listed as America's first dictator.
Jimmy Carter will retain his place as America's worst President.
GW will be listed as our last President.
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.
Arrest illegals, put them in Orange jump suits and transport them to DC... Drop them off in front of 1600...
If DC is not going to deport them, then they can take care of them...
You are so right! Just wait until news of our Dear Leader’s edict reaches Mexico. Arizona will look like Mexican Black Friday at Wal Mart with border agents and law enforcement left twisting in the wind.
Impeachment....are we there yet? Or shall we wait until a terrorist or drug lord kills a few hundred of us?
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.
Obama has written off Arizona. Even the legal Mexicans won’t be too happy to know anyone can come to the USA and stay and work as long as they want...
I don’t mean to say that we don’t want Romney. It is just that true conservatives will never vote for this empty suit. We want a conservative like Reagan!!
ICE is less than worthless.
Yep, Arizona, SCOTUS and us!
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.
