for Arizona in Canceling Immigration Enforcement Program
CNS News -- Hours after the Supreme Court upheld a key provision of Arizona's immigration law, President Obama "demonstrated anew his utter disregard for the safety and security of the Arizona people," Gov. Jan Brewer announced on Monday.
"Within the last two hours, I have been notified the Obama administration has revoked the 287(g) agreement," which allows Arizona police to partner with the federal government in enforcing immigration law.
It's no coincidence, Brewer said, noting that while 68 law enforcement bodies in 24 states have 287(g) agreements with the federal government, the only agreement eliminated on Monday was the one with Arizona -- "the state that happens to be on the front lines of America's fight against illegal immigration," she said.
"We are on our own, apparently," Brewer said in the statement posted on her website.
“I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised," she continued. "The Obama administration has fought the people of Arizona at every turn -- downplaying the threat that a porous border poses to our citizens, filing suit in order to block our State from protecting itself, unilaterally granting immunity to tens of thousands of illegal aliens living in our midst, and now this. Still, the disarmament of Arizona’s 287(g) agreements is a new low, even for this administration."
Abandoning AZ: They've Said 'Drop Dead And Go Away'
Blog author's comments - Gov. Jan Brewer is following the rule of law in an attempt to curtail the number of illegals who cross the border into Arizona. Barack Obama is making the situation in Arizona very difficult for both the Governor and law enforcement personnel trying to protect their state.
The president is upset because he did not get everything he thought he should have with the SCOTUS ruling on the Arizona illegal immigration case. So, he cancelled the Immigration Enforcement Program between Arizona and the government, which allows Arizona police to work with the federal government to enforce immigration law. The President of the United States does not want immigration laws enforced. It's just that simple.
Obama, if he wins a second term, will find a way to give the illegals amnesty and eventually citizenship, so they can vote for the Democrats. This is and has always been his ultimate goal.
If Obama and the Democrats are defeated this and many other problems his administration has promoted and created can be solved. I have no idea how the majority of the voters can support Obama in November. I also fear what the Obama administration will do to this country if he is in the White House four more years.
