Supreme said states can’t enforce immigration law – Obama says Federal Government won’t enforce immigration laws

Obama administration rescinds a key partnership allowing local police to enforce federal immigration rules
Supreme court decision Monday struck down three provisions in Arizona’s law, including one that allowed local police to arrest anybody they suspect committed a deportable offense.

The ruling left in place, though, a central plank that required local law enforcement during routine stops to check the immigration status of anyone they suspect is in the country illegally.

In a grab for immigrant votes Obama administration said “the Department of Homeland Security had pulled back on a program known as 287(g), which allows the feds to deputize local officials to make immigration-based arrests. According to a DHS official, the administration has determined those agreements are “not useful” now in states that have Arizona-style laws. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has since rescinded that agreement with Arizona with the state itself, and three local law enforcement agencies.

This move means that even if local police step up immigration checks, they’ll have to rely on federal officials to make the arrests. And federal officials made clear that ICE would be selective in responding to the expected rise in calls from Arizona and other police agencies about immigration status. Officials said ICE will not respond to the scene unless the person in question meets certain criteria such as being wanted for a felony.

  1. This is goofy, a State see’s a LOCAL problem and addresses it, and get’s zero support from Uncle Sam to clean up the issue that slipped through the cracks.

  2. This is possibly a portend of things to come ? How are our states going to uphold their Soveriegnty if the SCOTUS WILL NOT UPHOLD THIS RIGHT…And, how are we going to stop illegal immigration ? I WILL TELL YOU……. FIRE THAT ILLEGAL IMPOSTER WHO IS POSING AS OUR pRESIDENT…..
