DHS Ends Agreements with Arizona Law Enforcement Authorities

Rating: 2 votes, 5.00 average.

As if to put an explanation point on today's Supreme Court decision, the White House will suspend immigration agreements with Arizona including the state's 287(g) agreement. Essentially, DHS is telling Arizona police that if they pick up people on the show us your papers law and call ICE, don't expect your call to be returned. They'll check to see if someone is a criminal, but if not, they're going to tell the police to release the person.

    Wink Wink !! Feds will continue to enforce 287g agreements with all other states except Arizona so that they can continue to arrest undocumented folks and report them to ICE in order for them to be deported.

    Ha Ha .. what hypocrisy...

    Why don't they end 287 (g) agreements all across the country ?

    Not only does he decides on issues not before him but instead chooses to use his decision to comment on matters of policy and on the President's news conference:

    http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/ticket/arizona-dissent-scalia-blasts-obama-deportation-stay-immigration-185431255.html

    "The president said at a news conference that the new program is 'the right thing to do' in light of Congress's failure to pass the administra?tion's proposed revision of the Immigration Act," Scalia, a Reagan appointee, wrote in his dissent.

    Arizona's entire immigration law should be upheld, Scalia wrote, because it is "entitled" to make its own immigration policy. At one point, he cites the fact that before the Civil War, Southern states could exclude free blacks from their borders to support the idea that states should be able to set their own immigration policies.

    A small man lost in time for the most of us but a great Justice and a legend in his own mind. Senator Kennedy messed up on this one, he should have "Borked" Scalia and Uncle Tom when he had the chance.

    This takes the teeth out of the SC decision for AZ. But I am sure in reality people arrested will have to be run through Secure Communities and the feds will decide if the get processed or not. So really in that regards very little has changed from today. But I am sure that people are waiting on Arpio and his frieds to do racial profiling and keeping score enough to completely kill the law. All and all AZ and the other will lose this battle.
