No, not the frozen water. This ICE is the Immigration and Customs Enforcement. These are the folks that deport illegal aliens. However, it looks like they might decline to deport illegals reported from Arizona.
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.

The best way to reduce illegal immigration is through a comprehensive federal approach, he said, and not a patchwork of state laws.
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.

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.

As I said elsewhere, the solution is militia. When the Feds can't or won't enforce the law of the land, a militia may be formed which can and will.

Our nation was founded and survived on that principle for a good many years.

You missed the most entertaining part of his quote:
"The law makes it a crime to be in the state illegally..."
I wasn't present when he spoke, but I'll bet he said it with a straight face.
