Human Events ran my story Wednesday about last week’s federal lawsuit against Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio and Arizona’s illegal immigration stance.
Despite overwhelming national support for immigration law enforcement, Fedzilla’s attack continues. The U.S. Department of Justice and Department of Education are investigating Arizona’s Department of Education alleging discrimination over the firing of teachers found to not be proficient with the English language.
Early today reports surfaced that a federal directive to all states will require police to stop detaining illegal immigrants until they commit a more serious crime than being in the country illegally.
Just as states and municipalities do not get to choose and pick which laws to enforce, the federal government has an obligation to enforce the laws of the land. The government can change the law through the legally approved process, but it cannot ignore them for political gain.
