The imperial presidency continues. Just hours after the Supreme Court ruled that Arizona police officers may check the immigration status of illegals who are apprehended and report them to federal officers, Obama has decided to cancel the 287(g) program. This, from Fox News:
Federal officials said the program known as 287(g) would be immediately suspended. 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.
