Top Official Says Feds May Not Process Illegals Referred From Arizona
John Morton, assistant secretary of homeland security for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, made the comment during a meeting on Wednesday with the editorial board of the Chicago Tribune, the newspaper reports.
"I don't think the Arizona law, or laws like it, are the solution," Morton told the newspaper.
Last I checked, Mr. Morton, it's not your place to determine the solution all by your lonesome. Exactly who do you think you are? This country is a Republic comprised of individual states who have the right and the responsibility to establish their own laws. Assuming that the Arizona immigration law does not violate the United States Constitution, it is not up to ICE or Mr. Morton to pick and choose what laws he will and will not enforce. If he cannot - or WILL NOT - do his job then he should be fired.
And, on a side note to Mexico's president, Felipe Calderone...howzabout you take care of your own country and fix your own problems before you try coming across the border to OUR White House and badmouthing OUR states' laws. If you'd take care of your own backyard first, maybe we wouldn't NEED laws like what Arizona has enacted.
