DOJ Doesn’t Have Resources To Enforce Law

From a pdf file of the Department Of Justice ‘complaint’ (lawsuit) against Arizona, page 3:

COMPLAINT

1. S.B. 1070’s mandatory enforcement scheme will conflict with and undermine the federal

government’s careful balance of immigration enforcement priorities and objectives. For

example, it will impose significant and counterproductive burdens on the federal agencies

charged with enforcing the national immigration scheme, diverting resources and attention

from the dangerous aliens who the federal government targets as its top enforcement priority.

It will cause the detention and harassment of authorized visitors, immigrants, and citizens

who do not have or carry identification documents specified by the statute, or who otherwise

will be swept into the ambit of S.B. 1070’s “attrition through enforcement” approach. It will

conflict with longstanding federal law governing the registration, smuggling, and

employment of aliens. It will altogether ignore humanitarian concerns, such as the

protections available under federal law for an alien who has a well-founded fear of

persecution or who has been the victim of a natural disaster. And it will interfere with vital

foreign policy and national security interests by disrupting the United States’ relationship

with Mexico and other countries.

This is further amplified on page 6:

18. In exercising its significant enforcement discretion, the federal government

prioritizes for arrest, detention, prosecution, and removal those aliens who pose a danger to

national security or a risk to public safety. Consistent with these enforcement priorities, the

federal government principally targets aliens engaged in or suspected of terrorism or

espionage; aliens convicted of crimes, with a particular emphasis on violent criminals, felons,

and repeat offenders; certain gang members; aliens subject to outstanding criminal warrants;

and fugitive aliens, especially those with criminal records.

Mr. Obama and his Justice Department are arguing that they do not have the resources to fully enforce our nation’s borders against illegal aliens. That if they tried, it would be a distraction from the more important priority of guarding against terrorists and other dangerous aliens.

But the irony is that with its new law, Arizona is offering to enforce the federal immigration laws for them. Or, at least, help them enforce the law. They are literally offering their state and local police as re-enforcements.  So, in fact, the DOJ’s argument here should actually help Arizona’s case.

And the claim that enforcing our laws would hurt our foreign relations is just as preposterous:

19. In crafting federal immigration law and policy, Congress has necessarily taken

into account multiple and often competing national interests. Assuring effective enforcement

of the provisions against illegal migration and unlawful presence is a highly important

interest, but it is not the singular goal of the federal immigration laws. The laws also take

into account other uniquely national interests, including facilitating trade and commerce;

welcoming those foreign nationals who visit or immigrate lawfully and ensuring their fair

and equitable treatment wherever they may reside; responding to humanitarian concerns at

the global and individual levels; and otherwise ensuring that the treatment of aliens present

in our nation does not harm our foreign relations with the countries from which they come

or jeopardize the treatment of U.S. citizens abroad.

Did you realize that our federal immigration laws are not primarily about keeping illegal aliens out of our country?

Did you know that those laws are instead meant to make sure “that the treatment of [illegal] aliens present in our nations does not harm our foreign relations with the countries from which they come”?

We didn’t either.

But if this were true it would mean that we can do absolutely nothing to limit the flood of illegal aliens from Mexico, since the billions they send back home provides Mexico with about one third of its national GDP.

So anything that would restrict that source of income would harm our relations with our good neighbor to the south.

As for jeopardizing the treatment of U.S. citizen abroad, we wonder if Mr. Obama or Mr. Holder have ever read any of the laws covering the treatment of legal and illegal aliens in Mexico. (We are kidding. Of course they haven’t.)

Still, it’s good to know that Mr. Obama and Mr. Holder have their priorities straight. And, as usual, they put the interests of foreign countries over that of the citizens of the US.

    Perhaps they should move a few of those thousands of propaganda specialists overflowing every office building in DC to the border..

  2. BannedbytheTaliban says:

    This is absolutely outrageous. The Obama administration actually believes that the federal government has the right of “enforcement discretion,” a practice completely against the concept of equal protection under the law. Everybody at the DOJ and in the Obama administration, including Obama himself, should be tried for treason and willful destruction of constitutional law. This kind of selective persecution is exactly what the founders wanted to prevent. Just ask political dissenters in the third world dictatorships how well that works out for them. The purpose of the law is to provide protection and justice, not advance your political agenda.

    We already have a DOJ that says they are not going to investigate crimes where blacks victimize whites, now one that says they can selective enforce laws as they please. On top of that the Department of Homeland Security is calling people with Ron Paul stickers and returning vets terrorist. A storm is brewing; the night of the long knives may soon be upon us. America cannot get rid of these criminals fast enough.

    The evidence mounts and the case is building against this government.

    Charges MUST be filed against them. Their actions and inactions are obvious and reveal their true goals.

    1)Punish legitimate US citizens
    2)Make them feel pain
    3)Take their property away

    And all in the name of some percieved injustice from the past. You know that same injustice that enabled an articulate negro to gain a superior education in the premier ivy league school in the nation and become this nation’s chief executive.

    At the base of it, the boy is not right. He is mentally deficient. He is sick. But what guides him IS that sickness. His mantra is: “Punish all, make them hurt and delight in doing it.”

      “The First Time I Heard Of Barack
      By Tom Fife
      11-20-8

      During the period of roughly February 1992 to mid 1994, I was making frequent trips to Moscow, Russia, in the process of starting a software development joint-venture company with some people from the Russian scientific community….

      One evening, during a trip early in 1992, the American half of our venture were invited to V. & T.’s Moscow flat …

      The bottom line of the tirade she started against the United States went something like this:

      “You Americans always like to think that you have the perfect government…

      “What if I told you that you will have a black president very soon and he will be a Communist?”…

      “Yes, it is true. This is not some idle talk. He is already born and he is educated and being groomed to be president right now. You will be impressed to know that he has gone to the best schools of Presidents. He is what you call “Ivy League”. You don’t believe me, but he is real and I even know his name. His name is Barack. His mother is white and American and his father is black from Africa. That’s right, a chocolate baby! And he’s going to be your President.”….

      He is being guided every step of the way and he will be irresistible to America.”…

      “Have no doubt: he is one of us, a Soviet.”

      http://gunnyg.wordpress.com/2008/11/20/the-first-time-i-heard-of-barack-by-tom-fife/#more-4557

      probably not true.

      it makes too much sense.

    • proreason says:

      Other information:

      In 1955, Obamy’s grandparents pulled up roots and moved from Kansas to Seattle with their 13 year-old daughter. Why would that be? LA – maybe, Dallas – maybe, but Seattle? Oh, btw, gramps had been investigated by the FBI for espionage but never convicted. The FBI file was destroyed after Obams took office. You can look it up.

      A year later, Mama was enrolled in Mercer Island High.

      “”She was not a standard-issue girl. You don’t start out life as a girl with a name like Stanley without some sense you are not ordinary.”

      One respite was found in a wing of Mercer Island High called “anarchy alley.” Jim Wichterman taught a wide-open philosophy course that included Karl Marx. Next door, Val Foubert taught a rigorous dose of literature, including Margaret Mead’s writings on homosexuality.”

      http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/politics/2004334057_obama08m.html

      The school was run by an open communist who also was the key figure in the church they attended.

      Anne Dunham was noted for her beyond-her-years radical views and openly boasted that she didn’t need to have a man to have a baby.

      Shortly before she had that baby, the family moved to Hawaii. What a strage journey, no? Almost as if tracks were being covered. Hawaii had been noted in the 40’s as a Communist hotbed.

      Six years later, Mama and Obamy left Hawaii for Indonesia, which had just beat back a Communist insurgency, and was one of the most dangerous places in the world. Strange eh? Maybe not so strange if you have a child you want to indocrinate and don’t want the world to know. Then 4 years later, back to Hawaii where the dictator in training was dropped off with gramps and grandma and mama proceded to travel the world. She hated the US, btw. But think about it, what kind of mother does that? In Hawaii, Obamy was tutored by a bi-sexual black Communist child-molestor who was married to a white woman. The little marxist learned his lessons well, because by the time he landed in Occidental College he was hard core, or so the leader of the Marxist student group says. Within 2 years, Obamy was in Columbia, a few blocks away from where Bill Ayers was living at the time. Strange coincidence, no? And oh yes, all of his college undergraduate roommates were Pakistani’s. People thought Obamy was gay as well. There are no reports or pictures of him with a woman before Michelle, other than one fishy story in his autogiography.

      Our little boy president’s Communist roots go back a long ways, even before he was born. Of course, every one of those influences before the 80’s is dead now. Strange coincidence, no?

      But even if you refuse to believe that he is a Communist from the get-go, that sure is a helluva strange life for anybody to have lived, isn’t it?

      How can a multi-racial, multi-national, multi-cultural, muti-religious man who was abandoned by both parents, a communist organizer who has never had a real job, a marxist (so he said as a youth) and a probable homosexual possibly represent this country with it’s anglo-saxon judeo-christion family-centric entreprenuriallly capitalistic heritage?

      Pro,

      If you were to write a suspense novel with that as the plot you’d never be able to sell it. Most agents and publishers would declare it to far-fetched to be believable but many times truth is indeed stranger than fiction.

      I still am amazed that this worthless pile of donkey dung actually got elected first to the senate then to be the “leader” of our great country. I guess if we survived FDR, Carter and Kennedy we will also survive this butt monkey but it is going to take years to clean up the mess.

    • proreason says:

      ROP, the more you learn about him, the stranger the story becomes.

      Did you know that virtually all of the records of his life are sealed or destroyed? Orr that some people have investigated his social security number and claim that he has had multiple numbers, and that his current one is from Conneticut. Other people say that almost everyone in his family has multiple aliases.

      Here’s another interesting tidbit that sounds true….his white grandfather discovered his own mother dead from suicide when he was only 8.

      There is even somebody with reams of information that claims that all of the details of Obama’s, his parents and grandparents lives are fabricated. That person goes to great lengths to prove that many of the key photographs of the “family story” are photoshopped.

      It’s all so amazing that it is really hard to know what to believe.

      But regardless of what you think might be true or not, one thing is absolutely clear. The guy making the most important decisions for our country is about as far from a normal American as you can get.

    • heykev says:

      Pro
      Read the articles you posted a link to this week that this information derives from. It’s fascinating.

      I’m not entirely sure about the veracity of all the information it contained. But even if 5% is true, he’s disqualified from being President and should be tried for treason. The “photoshop” article did seem a bit far fetched. The indoctrination into Marxism from childhood seemed spot on

      “He is being guided every step of the way”

      With his connections to Bill Ayres (who I believe wrote his autobiography), George Soros, et el I wonder who ultimately that person is.

    • proreason says:

      heykev,

      yes, it seems impossible to know the truth about the criminal. He or somebody has erased virtually every record from his past. And every significant influence on his life from the time he entered Occidental College is dead. Two great uncles are alive, one from each side of the family, but they ain’t talking…and they may not really know anything anyway. Obamy’s immediate family moved thousands of miles away from them years before the little dictator was born.

      So you have people like Tom Fife appear with a story that you would ordinarilly discount as too fantastical to be true, and you say to yourself, “gee, it could be true. It fits with what a know about the criminal”. And then there is the PhD who has appeared that says very believably that he had conversations with the boy king of 21 and that the boy king was a hard-core marxist at that time. And there is the student body leader at Columbia who says that he doesn’t know a single person from that time who has any recollection of Obama at all. And then there are the students from his Harvard days who say he didn’t do a lick of work as the “editor” of the Law Review. And then there are the people who say he shared an office with Bill Ayers for 2 years….not an offices in the same building, but the SAME office.

      So it’s no surpise that there is a growing body of speculative investigators who claim all sorts of stuff about the guy. It could all be made up stuff….but if all of the facts have been surpressed, how do you learn about the guy. The only evidence is the “autobiograpy”, which could be 100% made up as well. There isn’t any way to verify it either.

      I think they delliberately allow the whole birth certificate thing to fester because it distracts from the other stuff. They have the “published” certificate (which many people say is a computer record that non-citizens can easily obtain, and which contains no verifiable information anyway), which pundits like Chris Matthews sarcastically wave around on TV periodically to discredit the “nuts”. If you don’t go look into it yourself, of course you would believe even a partisan like Matthews. After all, he has the birth certificate in his hand. He wouldn’t lie about something like that, would he? Meanwhile, every contact from the guy’s past is a communist, a radical, or an alinskey disciple. And nobody talks about that except when Hannity goes on a tear.

    • heykev says:

      Pro,
      I am not one given to conspiracy theories – too many people generally involved for the truth not to get out. People, being human have a difficult keeping lies a secret, there is a need inside us to tell someone.

      HOWEVER….the more I look into BHO, the more convinced I become that he is at least illegitimate as President. I have growing suspicions about him as a sort of Manchurian Candidate President, doing the bidding of his Marxist masters.

      He seems too thin skinned to be a real politician. Does not seem to care about anything save golfing and parties. Can’t imagine what the MSM would do if Bush acted the way – ever.

      I am hoping that one of the newspapers from the UK (or even the Enquirer – who was screwed out of a Pulitzer regarding coverage of John Edwards’s sexual indiscretions) will do some real investigative reporting and dig into his past. It appears to be made out of whole cloth. I have given up on any real reporting from our media.

      Someone, somewhere MUST have some real information on our Dear Leader. It would be nice to get a look at his college transcripts, passport (how did he get into Pakistan when it was closed to US citizens when he visited in 81) or any other piece of real information about the man.

    • hushpuppy says:

      I don’t know if you realize it, but you’ve just quoted from the koran. If you remember, one of the first things Barry did was to give interviews in which he:

      admitted he is Muslim, attended a Muslim school in Indonesia, happily did the Muslim call to prayer in an interview with the NY Times, said the most beautiful thing in the world is the call to Muslim call to prayer in the evening.

      He also makes fun off Christianity and the Bible and treated Netanyahu worse than a peasant back in March. Remember: the Koran teaches to hate Christians, Jews and other unbelievers; and only pretend you are their friend only if it benefits Islam.

      He gave interviews just after being elected in which he stated that the US is filled with Jews, Christians and other unbelievers, a subtle reminder to other Muslim countries in which he is pronouncing a call to destroy America.

      ..and on and on and on…

      What you wrote about punishment, making it painful and removing property is straight out of the koran. There are various ways of doing this and they ALL are accomplished through punitive forms of taxation – of which there are several ranging from the poordue, the jizzya all the way to confiscation of property. The other point being to make unbelievers feel shame, humiliation, pain.

      If any of you are familiar with torrents, Google: The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam and the Crusades and look at the links. You can get the pdf or the MP3. It is all explained.

      What irks me is that people dump all over Christianity without knowing anything about it – but they’ll jump to defend Islam as the religion of peace.

      Such is Islam – and ‘we ain’t seen nuthin’ yet’.

      On last thing: since the koran teaches taqqiya (the art of telling lies and half-truths to unbelievers), a misdirection is as good as a lie. What am I talking about?

      Who really is Obama’s DNA donator? Obama, Sr. as we’ve all been programmed to believe? Or could it be Frank Marshall Davis?

    It will have Dunham on it, for the simple reason that she was not legally married plus she was underage.

    When the true chronology is finally made known, we will find out that this jackass was somewhere other than college for about two and a half years.

    Prison? Mental hospital? Soviet spy school? Undercover covert CIA agent on assignment to Indonesia?
