A top Department of Homeland Security official reportedly said his agency will not necessarily process illegal immigrants referred to them by Arizona authorities.And, just why-the-hell-not?
"I don't think the Arizona law, or laws like it, are the solution," Morton told the newspaper.Wait a minute, there, Morton. The Arizona law mirrors US law, which you guys should have been enforcing in the first place. The reason Arizona enacted that legislation is because you weren't doing your job in the first place. Maybe, just maybe, if you weren't malfeasant, Arizona wouldn't have had to enact legislation like this.
The best way to reduce illegal immigration is through a comprehensive federal approach, he said, and not a patchwork of state laws.
All public servants are subject to the various malfeasance statutes. I personally don't have a problem with indicting some of these idiots and having them explain to a Court why they're not doing the job they were hired to do. In Morton's case, that includes enforcing the immigration law.
Hat tip, Alphecca.
