The ILW reports today that the Obama Regime will ignore its responsibility to see that the laws of the United States are faithfully executed. http://www.ilw.com/articles/2009,0407-chishti.shtm The Obama Regime will apparently mandated that Immigration and Customs Enforcement Detention and Removal Operations (ICE DRO) will only arrest illegal aliens with outstanding orders of deporation, absonders (interestingly they did not arrest the most famous illegal aliens with an oustanding order of deporation, Zeituni Onyango , the aunt of Baraka Hussein Obama). Previously ICE DRO arrested illegal aliens wherever they were found, but not any more. They are now instructed to ignore what are called collateral arrestees, illegal aliens they encounter while looking absconders.
Also, local law enforcement agencies participating in the 287(g) program deputizing their employees as federal agents will from now also restrict themselves to illegal alien absconders. Since Sheriff Joe Arpaio has arrested thousands of illegal aliens as part fo the 287(g) program, the radical left has been incensed and sought to shut down that program. And now they are successful. The program under the Obama Regime will have no effect, as absconders are already entered in the National Crime Information Computer (NCIC) that all law enforcement uses when they encounter a subject of an investigation or traffic stop. There is no special 287(g) authority needed to make an arrest based on an NCIC hit. The success of 287(g) was the widespread use of that authority by numersous agencies, that made many cities and counties inhospitable to illegal aliens.
The new orders from the Obama Administration have the goal of making living in the United States easier for illegal aliens and ensure that they are around for the upcoming amnesty, all in violation of Obama's Oath Of Office that requires that the laws of the United States be faithfully executed. This new action by the Obama Regime makes certain that the laws of the United States are not faithfully executed, but left to wither for lack of use. If the Obama Regime has something against the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act, then it should seek its repeal, not just ignore the law. That is the definition of a lawless regime.
An impeachable offense, by the way.
