Where was ICE? Feds Supervised 287(g) Program in Jails, Touted Numerous "Success Stories" This Year

John Morton, director of ICE.

The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement bureau isn't ready to comment this morning on the impact of severing ties with the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office.

Which is a shame, because we have some good questions for them. Like, why was ICE supervising operations (see the last couple of pages of its agreement with MCSO) up until yesterday in what the Justice Department yesterday called a "culture of bias." Weren't they part of the culture?

Were the supervisors clueless to what the DOJ called the worst organization for racial profiling in US history? Or did 287(g) supervisors act as secret spies, collecting data on discriminatory policies and reporting it to their own ICE superiors, but not speaking up publicly about them?

ICE has a 287(g) "success stories" page that lists several "successes" of the Maricopa jail program. In other words, ICE is still bragging about the Maricopa program it just canceled.

The impact of severing ties with MCSO will present logistical challenges for ICE. A letter to Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery by ICE boss John Morton says agents will be brought into the state to help with "existing immigration enforcement priorities," but doesn't detail how it will take up the slack in county jails. Will the gang members and repeat offenders listed in the "success stories" still be dealt with properly, or released to the streets, as Sheriff Joe Arpaio warned yesterday?

Morton's letter says ICE will no longer respond to MCSO calls on traffic stops and other minor offenses. That seems to mean the sheriff's immigration sweeps and human smuggling enforcement until won't be able to function at all. Without access to federal computers, the sheriff's office will, in many cases, be unable to identify whether they've caught an illegal immigrant or someone who has the legal right to be in the country.

Calls to the sheriff's office this morning weren't returned.

Montgomery has a news conference scheduled for 10:30 a.m. to talk about this issue. We'll let you know what he says.

Controversial subject of illegal immigration and the Iowa Debate


Birthright citizens, and naturalized citizens have the ability to vote tochange America forever, but we must scrutinize voting registrations for the2012 election cycle for a President. Over and over again Democrats with Liberalties have been caught numerous times, using such radical groups such as Acornto steal political races with illegal alien registrations. Voter fraud is hereto stay, unless the federal government makes it impossible to defraud citizenvoters of their inherent rights, by demanding the use of a National ID cardthat could be used for many other purposes. The old Social Security number hasbeen badly compromised, as we have seen with a yearly tally of hundreds of thousandsof Americans fighting to save their credit, as its been procured by foreignnationals to steal jobs, as well as peoples good credit, then using it fornefarious purposes.



The Department of Justice, Eric Holder has showed his noticeablemark by mirroring the NAACP that having to show official picture ID is racist.Holder has shown his true colors as a far left progressive, by propelling his judgmentagainst the right of sovereign states to identify registered voters withgovernment documents like an ID card, and his now relentless pursuit againstArizona, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina, Utah and in probability NorthCarolina for adopting policing laws within their borders against illegal aliens.  ITHINK MOST PATRIOTIC AMERICANS WAOULD LIKE TO SEE ERIC HOLDER IMPEACHED, forhis unnecessary impact of suing states, trying to stop illegal aliens squattingthere and the ‘Gun Walking’ storm.  Ifholder joins the jobless lines, maybe he would have a better understanding ofAmericans looking for work, while company owners are still employing foreignerswho should not even be here? Soon—these unconcerned businesses will be in thespotlight, when ICE raids uncover the scheming in unlawful employment and haveto face harsh sanctions if caught. Not excluded is the irrational “witch Hunt”against steely Maricopa Sheriff Joe Arpaio, that the Obama administration has usingintimidation along with radical open border organizations.



In the Iowa nationally televised debate yesterday evening Idid not see Rep. Michele Bachmann brought into the discussion on illegalimmigration? Was it by chance I missed it, while digging in the refrigeratorfor Soy milk or was the TEA PARTY chairperson deliberately left out of thismost controversial issue, that is vastly becoming manifest amongst the tens ofmillions of physical Conservatives? Newt Gingrich had his say relating to the20 million illegal migrant and immigrant population already residing here andthat it was unreasonable to deport foreign nationals who havelived in America for 25 years. Gingrich also added that the administrationshould get off the back of States that are being persecuted for their standagainst illegal immigration; included he said that the fence would be completedbetween US-Mexico by 2014 (Is that the real 2006 Secure Double layer borderfence) and that Sanctuary Cities (State such as California, Nevada, Coloradoand New York) would be punished with loss of federal funds.



Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, who has beenGingrich’s main political principal rival partner in recent debates, defendedthe U.S. Immigration and citizenship Services E-Verify program proposing identificationcards for all "non-resident aliens" working here. Texas Gov. ThenRick Perry  who was attacked by verbalflak last September for defending in-state university tuition to illegalimmigrants, who were either smuggled into the US, as the unborn or who werebrought into the country as children and attend public schools in Texas. Romneyconcluded on this heated subject, "I've sent Texas Ranger reconteams there. Our law enforcement men and women face fire from across theborder, or in the U.S. side, from the drug cartels," Perry said. "Itis not safe there.”




Both Gingrich, Romney has forgotten one important factor; thatthese words are the initiative that will draw even more illegal aliens if wedon’t enforce our laws; finding a way to get to public welfare and entitlementAmerica? As I have already mentioned, unless I was absent from the TV set atthe time, that Michele Bachmann was left out of this part of the commentary. Asthe Major TEA PARTY leader her resume has proven her worth to stifle spendingin Massachusetts, as well been an arbiter of reducing the $15 Trillion treasurydeficit and has a commanding vote in opposition to superfluous issues in the Houseof Representatives. She is a strong opponent of the archaic tax code, whichmust be replaced with fair taxation for all; without any exemptions, subsidiesfor the wealth corporations and industries of special interests lobbyists.




Rep. Dan Boren (D-Ok)is the third Democrat cosponsoring Chairman Lamar Smith's Legal Workforce Act(H.R.2885.) Originally Smith required100 co-sponsors to pass the bill. The numbers have currently grown, 72, so as aresult all we need to get this extremely important bill to the House chambersis just 28.   The bill would require 100% of businesses tobegin using E-Verify for all new hires within 2 years and require all federal,state, and local governments to check new hires and existing employees within 6months. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has launched Records and Information fromDMVs for E-Verify (RIDE),a new aspect which allows USCIS’s E-Verify plan to approve the validness ofMississippi driver’s licenses used by employees as Form I-9 identity documents.RIDE mirrors a obligation to continuallyimproving E-Verify,” said USCIS Director Alejandro Mayorkas. “Thisimportant enhancement strengthens E-Verity’s anti-fraud capabilities and will introducea key role in helping employers in the United States to maintain a legalworkforce.”

The bill is a concrete proposal and has a lot ofsupport in the U.S. House, with 80 co-sponsors. It is one of the "fivegreat immigration solutions" many politicians are standing for this year. THEGENUINE 2006 SECURE FENCE ACT;  double 15foot high fence, for fast track lanes in between for the US Border Patrol to use.  However, they need a lot more momentum towin. Rep. King's bill, H.R. 140, that would require Congress to elucidate themeaning of the 14th Amendment and thereby ending  the practice ofautomatically granting U.S. citizenship to all U.S.-born children of illegalaliens. We don't need a Constitutionalamendment. Without an amendment the US taxpayers are the recipients of the law,which allows an estimated 340.000 babies to become instant citizens annuallyadding to the growing deficit, to support these children and the Mother. Thisis the most expensive entitlement law attributed to illegal immigrationoccupation.


 Other than Rep. Steve King's (R-IA) Birthright Citizenship Actof 2011, that would stop the misinterpreted practice of instant citizenship tochildren of illegal alien parents, the Mandatory E-Verify will end incurablebusiness owners from hiring cheap foreign labor, instead of the 22 millionAmerican workers looking for a ‘Help needed” Sign. Nowthere's more proof that Americans want to abolish automatic citizenship for thechildren of illegal aliens. .A new Rasmussen poll shows that 65% of likely U.S. voters oppose birthrightcitizenship.

Excellent questions !!!    They definitely deserve an answer.    

Even if ICE really hated cutting off a "cozy" arrangement with Arpaio and Sheridan.

Keep after them Ray.

Regardless, I'm glad to hear ICE is leaving MCSO. It's about damn time they woke up.

It's hard to know where John Morton's loyalty stands. Is he with the United States Federal Law Enforcement Agency under Obama's rule. Or is he with the Nation's "worst" racial profiler, otherwise known as "AmeriKKKa's Toughest Shurf".  It doesn't make any sense to "severe ties" with the corrupt MCSO, while touting their numerous"successes" with them. Mr. Morton needs to pick a side.
