Obama Grants De Facto Amnesty in Arizona
Could this be Obama's Gettysburg moment or a glimpse at how the administration will respond if Obamacare is overturned?
After the Supreme Court opted not to strike down a portion of Arizona's immigration law that required officers to verify the immigration status of those they have reasonable suspicion to believe are in the country illegally, the Obama administration revoked an agreement between Arizona and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) that allowed the state to act as immigration enforcement officers. The Obama administration went one step further and stated they will not respond to immigration checks from Arizona law enforcement unless the suspect in question is a felon.
