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.

Solution. Free bus tickets to DC & NY for all of these illegals. You want em? You got em.
I would think that even those proposing immigration reform that includes amnesty should be frightened by this. First, it gives a pass to illegal immigrants who have only been vetted by Los Zetas. Second, and by far most important, Obama is nullifying a Supreme Court decision by executive edict. Even FDR didn’t dare go this far.
I wonder what BHO has planned if he loses some part or all if the Obamacare decision?
You are right.
All that it will take is one Willie Horton to sink Obama.
The DNC will cry ‘racism’, but voters value their safety way, way above their need to appear policially correct.
If my memory serves, this president has never concerned himself with the law; enforcing it or following it. And I don't see much opposition from Republicans, the kneepad media, or even ‘conservative’ talk show hosts.
Maybe things will change but thus far 0 has had carte blanche in finishing this country off.
There’s some budget cuts right there...fire all the ICE agents and DHS. They aren’t doing anything. We are a sanctuary country.
“I am sick of our politicians pandering to law breakers,...”
the “lawbreakers” provide the excuse and justifications for more spending=more power in DC
We the People just get in their way.
We will not be issuing detainers on individuals unless they clearly meet our defined priorities,
What would be a clearly met defined priority? I guess illegal entry into the country wouldn’t be one. Perhaps double ax murder? Being a Republican?
obama doesn’t have to worry. AZ re-elected the senator who said obama’s not a bad person. Some of those voters will vote for obama.
The RINOs have, and do, and will, SUPPORT Obama-TREASON.
Who in the legislative branch of government has the b*lls to put on the cuffs or even charge Obama with violation of his oath of office?
All hail, Mac-Bama! that shalt be king hereafter!
The man's heart, mind and soul are truly warped. He hates our laws, our religion - us really. Now that things are falling in around him, he's dealing with it by lashing out at his "enemies" - real or perceived.
"Lame duck" is going to get ugly.
>So sleep well members of the Court - if you can.<
You can be sure that they will have no problem at all falling asleep and staying asleep.
Their grandkids may get hurt badly, but that is of no concern to these folks in black.
SCOTUS has just been flipped off. Wonder if this will have any effect on the other decisions. You’d like to think emotion wouldn’t enter into any of their decisions, only the rule of law, it I do wonder
So an illegal immigrant from Egypt or Iran with plans to bomb NYC can now walk into Arizona, get caught, and then get released to execute his bombing plans?
Interesting. Mohammed Attah did not have a felony conviction. He could stay under this plan. I really do think Obama wants to kill us.
Anyone with aFacebook account know if Brewer has commented yet on this latest news?
“....but voters value their safety way, way above their need to appear policially correct.”
Not the black or muslim voters — they look at 0 and they see someone with the same skin color as theirs or someone of the same faith, and that is enough to them.
I’m sorry for your country, whenever a socialist country exhausts/destroys its own means of production it invades and pillages its neighbors.
Alberta oil sands, Sudbury metal deposits, Saskatchewan potash...
