Picking & Choosing When To Enforce The Law

This from John Morton, Obama's head of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement:

Echoing comments by President Barack Obama and others in the administration, Morton said that Arizona's new law targeting illegal immigration is not "good government." The law makes it a crime to be in the state illegally and requires police to check suspects for immigration paperwork.

Morton said his agency will not necessarily process illegal immigrants referred to them by Arizona officials. The best way to reduce illegal immigration is through a comprehensive federal approach, not a patchwork of state laws, he said.

"I don't think the Arizona law, or laws like it, are the solution," Morton said.

This administration is nothing if not a thugocracy. This is also ripe for a law suit requiring Morton to perform his job - but how screwed up does this administration have to be for it possibly come down to that. The other option is to let Morton release just one illegal alien referred by Arizona and then have him or her involved in the murder of Americans, then let's watch what happens. I don't think even the MSM, in full Obama lust, could spin or repress that one, not when a significant majority of Americans support the Arizona law.
