Obama’s Oath of Obfuscation



So Nice He Did It Twice: “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

And you believed him?

In the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision on Arizona’s immigration law, Obama administration officials announced Monday they are suspending in the state a key program that allowed state and local law enforcement to enforce federal immigration law.

The move further weakens efforts by Arizona, and potentially other states, to take the reins on immigration enforcement.

The high court decision Monday struck down three provisions in Arizona’s law but left in place a central plank that required local law enforcement during routine stops to check the immigration status of anyone they suspect is in the country illegally.

Obama administration officials and congressional Democrats immediately raised concerns this could lead to “racial profiling,” though Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer adamantly denies it. To address those concerns, Obama administration officials moved Monday to pull back on enforcement cooperation with local jurisdictions — meaning that even if local police step up immigration checks, they’ll have to rely on federal officials to make the arrests.

Federal officials said the program known as 287(g) would be immediately rescinded in Arizona. That program was a partnership between federal and local governments, and allowed local authorities to make immigration-based arrests.

Officials also said Immigration and Customs Enforcement will be selective in responding to the expected increase in calls from Arizona and other police agencies about immigration status of people they pull over. Officials said ICE will not respond to the scene unless the person in question meets certain criteria — such as being wanted for a felony.

Forces you to ponder what Obama will do prior to Nov. 6th if he is sinking in the polls, and post-Nov. 6th after he loses the election…

  1. Why did Roberts vote against Arizona? That is key. I am generally not a conspiracy theorist, but what pressure was put on Roberts and by whom to get him to vote this way?

    I think this vote against Arizona is more dangerous than any other vote the Supreme Court has ever given. This is nothing less than our country at war with a sovereign state’s defending itself and it is going to make enemies of our own law enforcement people. Now illegals will have more rights than law enforcement and I will bet there will be law suits and other bothers against border patrol agents as a result.

    I am terrified of this verdict.

  2. There’s a theory floating around that he did it to provide cover for SCOTUS when OBAMACARE is struck down. Just another theory. We’ll know at 10 Thursday morning…

  3. George –

    That’s what I’m thinking/hearing as well.

    Smacks AZ in the face, but they aren’t done in the whole court system.

    Hope ObamaCare gets the shit kicked out of it on the steps of the SCOTUS come Thursday.

  4. I fear even worse. I fear this court is not as conservative as we thought and Obama will get what he wants on Thursday.
    But maybe I will be proven wrong.

  5. One radio commentator suggested that in order to get the unanimous vote on the one proposition, Roberts was pressured into voting with the liberals on the other thing. Sounds like a good guess, no?
