Obama Admin Announces AZ Immigration Enforcement Cutback

President Barack Obama’s deputies announced Monday they are further reducing immigration enforcement in Arizona.

The surprise announcement came shortly after the Supreme Court decided that Arizona has the constitutional right to quiz suspected illegal immigrants about their legal right to be in the country.

“This isn’t an end-run [around the Supreme Court], this is a complete disregard of the constitutional process,” said Horace Cooper, director of the National Center for Public Policy Research. The court authorized Arizona’s actions, and the administration is going out of its way to frustrate those actions, he said.

“This is a direct rejection of the idea that our constitutional system set the Supreme Court up to answer these kind questions,” he said.

“If they’re doing less [with Arizona] than they would do with other other states, that’s not legitimate,” said Curt Levey, president of the Committee for Justice, a libertarian advocacy group.

Congress will push back hard, and the Supreme Court may hold a special session before the election to show its opposition to the administration’s “reckless and lawless” policy, Cooper predicted.

“I do think the public will be outraged to hear that this president thinks he is above the responsibility of implementing the law,” he said.
