So much for the bravado. The Maricopa County Sheriff's office is now cooperating in the Justice Department investigation of systematic civil rights violations.

    Agriculture Industry Fears Disaster If Illegal Immigration Enforcement Program E-Verify Is Implemented

    Last year Rodriguez's group started the "Take Our Jobs" campaign to entice American workers to take the fields. He said of about 86,000 inquiries the group got about the offer, only 11 workers took jobs.

    As expected. If that did not make the point then I don't what else would.

    NYT editorial:

    "Mr. Obama can bolster public safety by pulling the plug on Secure Communities, a program that sends fingerprints of everyone booked by state or local police to Department of Homeland Security databases to be checked for immigration violations."

    You send fingerprints to be checked against everything in the database (which includes immigration information). If law enforcement doesn't send the fingerprints, they won't know about criminal records. Is that what the NYT wants? Or do they want local law enforcement to turn a blind eye toward whatever immigration violation they find out about and withhold that from ICE, i.e., obstruct ICE's mission?


    "It was supposed to focus on dangerous felons, but the heavy majority of those it catches are noncriminals or minor offenders"

    I love that excuse. If the stated purpose were to catch EVERYONE subject to deportation, they would still be against it. Plus, it admits you think everyone except violent felons should be allowed to violate immigration law with impunity.

    I do not think that is the case, the point some of these states are making is that first the program was presented as "voluntary"(turns out to be not true). Second the main goal of the program was to catch violent offenders not to turn all state and local assets into Immigration enforcement agencies. They are finding out that most people that are run through the program are not violent offenders and therefore the stated goal of their participation is not happening. Therefore they are simply saying we do not want to be Immigration enforcement that is the federal government's job. They prefer to use their resources in the community and they know that Immigration drives away cooperation of the community specially the immigrant community to solve local crimes. It's a value judgment for the locals.... Only the antis like with the deport them all agenda want to make this into they do not want to enforce immigration law!!! That is the point , that is not their job, they do not want to be forced to do that job and that is all they are saying by rejecting the program, specially when is supposed to be "voluntary".
