John Morton, who heads U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement says that they will not support racist Arizona Law He needs to be doing exactly what he is doing; his job. He is there to enforce federal immigration law; not placate the Bull Connors of Arizona in their attempt to turn all undocumented aliens into criminals. They are not. It is not a federal crime to be here without authorization. Look it up. The wonderful people of Arizona enacted this law making it a STATE crime to be in Arizona in violation of the federal immigration laws. Let the good people or Arizona pay to arrest, detain, prosecute and house in state prisons these horrible people who simply entered our country. They have no right to dictate to the federal authorities how to enforce federal law. Hell, to anyone with any semblence of intelligence and understanding of Constutitional law, it is clear that the state has not authority under the Constitution to pass any laws that touch upon illegal immigration. It is impossible to round up all undocumented aliens and remove them to their country of origin. It would be a profound waste of resources, to. Why not have the police arrest people who commit crimes? If they happen to be here without authority, then they get deported. Chasing down the law abiding undocumented is diverting resources from the effort to stem the tide of drugs pouring into the country; drugs drawn here by the insatiable appetite of Americans. Every law abiding undocumented alien that is hunted down by the police in Arizona means that somewhere else in that state a criminal, native born or illegal, is still free.I find it shocking that many didn't learn from the original flawed language law they supported that left egg on their faces when Arizona had to change the wording to try and make it legal after they passed it. It seems to me that everyone should think about it before they blindly support something they do not even know is legal...particularly because it impacts other Americans. the fact is the arizona law is illegal and the federal government is not going to be a party to an illegal law. By picking up the illegals taken by the arizona law ..sounds good! We all know we have a border problem so it takes no brains to recognise something must be done. Some want a solution and they don't care if it is legal or not. The rest want a legal solution and are content to establish that it is legal before accepting a blue eye/green eye law that impacts other Americans. I am of the last group. No way I want to look as foolish as those who accepted Arizona's first flawed law. I am content to wait until the courts make the call rather than look like a confident There are hundred of stupid laws still on the books.. remeber this law In Arizona: It is illegal for men and women over the age of 18 to have less than one missing tooth visible when smiling There was a day when the law did not allow women to vote, allowed one human being to own another and when United States citizens of Japanese descent were rounded up and placed ininternment camps and None of those laws were right I'm in opposition to this law not because it is a violation of human and civil rights alone ...It goes against all human dignity, against the principles of most Americans I know The governor abdicated her responsibility to protect the human rights of every individual in Arizona...not just those who look like her ex-muslim...........young atheist

I just think its unnecessary to ask police to deal with immigration, they have plenty to do already and their priority should be protecting the public. Not sending hard workers back to their countries... More

The Arizona laws are an exact copy of the federal laws He is NOT doing his job (enforcing the federal law), so Arizona is doing it for him.
