    Pretty sad when our government pits itself against the citizens of our country in favor of foreigners.

    That's right. The message is that when the Arizona police contact them to report a criminal they've arrested to check on their status, the DHS will not answer their calls.

    Scalia was highly critical of Obama and he was right. The feds sued Arizona because they want to uphold laws already on the books, but Obama says it's wrong to uphold laws that he chooses not to uphold. The Arizona law did not expand or alter any existing federal law. It's just that Obama is above all laws and if he chooses to ignore them, everyone should because he says so. Going through proper channels isn't his thing and he prefers to declare things without congress getting involved to change laws. He doesn't need them for new legislation, so why should they be allowed to have a say in the current laws?

    And the administration mentioned something about future law suits. I suspect they'll go after the state again and again as they try to exercise their legal right to maintain sovereignty.

    Just another example of this REGIME thumbing its nose at the rule of law.

    THIS is an issue? Arizona has enough wild hairs to manufacture cheap toupees.

    Reading comprehension fail:

    In other words, Homeland Security won't follow up on calls from AZ regarding illegal immigrants if said illegal immigrants don't fall under a category that Obama's directive has ordered Homeland Security to focus on.

    Now that the HS has said "you are on your own", wonder what the justices think.
