They also would punish people who, during the commission of a crime, knowingly transport or harbor illegal immigrants. Something like speeding or driving without proper equipment could constitute a crime. April 2011: GA passes immigration bill Georgia immigration law foes protest Georgia mayor grapples with new law RELATED TOPICS U.S. Courts "The apparent legislative intent is to create such a climate of hostility, fear, mistrust and insecurity that all illegal aliens will leave Georgia," Thrash wrote. In his 45-page ruling, the judge cited a previous court decision that said preliminary injunctions were in the public interest "when civil rights are at stake." He also wrote that state officials were attempting to overstep federal authority on immigration enforcement. <br>visit http://on.cnn.com/iHTXiD

Sandweg, a criminal defense attorney and Arizona crony of Janet Napolitano, wrote in relation to President Obamas directive that ICE reexamine enforcement policies with an eye toward making them more humane. To that end, he says ICE should eliminate non-criminal re-entrants and immigration fugitives as a priority category for deportation. What that means is that people who have been formally deported and then sneak back in should be exempted from further attempts at removing them, even though re-entry after deportation is a felony. Also, he wants to exempt from deportation the hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens who have been ordered deported but ignored the order and simply absconded. He says, in the obligatory to be sure paragraph, To be sure, those who repeatedly cross our borders illegally or abscond from the immigration court bear culpability but if theyre exempt from being taken into custody and removed from the country, what does that culpability mean? Its not like theyre going to be prosecuted, even though reentry after deportation and absconding from court are both criminal offenses. Hes not just blue-skying this idea; its clearly the next step being considered in the administrations unilateral amnesty push. It wouldnt confer legal status on any illegal aliens (unlike the presidents illegal DACA/DREAM amnesty) but would solidify the status of immigration violations as secondary offenses. <br>visit http://wp.me/p4xGR-fEg

What do you think of this post? Mitch Morgan (@azmitche) March 28, 2014 at 7:07 pm # John McCain needs to put his name plate on the other side of the isle. Reply Steven Barrett March 29, 2014 at 1:26 am # There should be a large bootprint in the seat of McCains trousers, where the Republican Party kicked him over to the left, where he belongs! Turncoats like him are why the party cant get back into the White House. Hes no more Republican than Bill Clinton. The ironic thing is that Clintons honest about that (at least). <br>visit http://buzzpo.com/john-mccain-promises-name-amnesty-bill-ted-kennedy-bashes-arizona-tough-immigration-law/

Sandweg highlights something which is already going on to some extent in the Justice Department and could clearly be taken much further. If you cant gain any ground in getting the Legislative branch to decriminalize entry by illegal aliens, apparently you can just leave the current laws on the books but fail to enforce them. Or, on a related note, treat the crime as such an afterthought that there is no longer any disincentive to violating the law. That leads us to the larger question one which has been debated over a number of presidencies. At what point does a government divided into three ostensibly equal branches break down in effectiveness if they refuse to play their part in the overall contract? What does the Supreme Court do if it issues a ruling but can find no strong arm to enforce its decision? What recourse does the Legislative branch have if the duly elected members pass laws, but the judicial wing of the Executive fails to hold violators to account? <br>visit http://hotair.com/archives/2014/03/29/killing-the-rule-of-law-softly-on-immigration/
