Washington Examiner – by Joel Gehrke
Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano does not have the authority to refuse to enforce laws that require illegal immigrants to face deportation, according to the federal judge hearing the Immigration and Customs Enforcement union’s lawsuit against DHS.
“The court finds that DHS does not have discretion to refuse to initiate removal proceedings [when the law requires it],” U.S. District Judge Reed O’Connor said Wednesday, per Business Week. O’Connor asked DHS and the ICE union to offer additional arguments before he makes a final ruling on the legality of President Obama’s “deferred action on childhood arrivals” program, which invoked prosecutorial discretion as a means of allowing people to stay in the country if they would have qualified for amnesty under the Dream Act, which never passed Congress.
The judge’s comments come one day after Napolitano scolded the union, during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on the Gang of Eight’s immigration bill, for challenging the policy she and Obama have implemented.
“There are tensions with union leadership, unfortunately,” Napolitano told Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., on Tuesday. “Here’s what I expect as a former prosecutor and attorney general: that is that law enforcement agents will enforce the law in accordance with the guidance they are given [by] their superiors.”
Sessions faulted Napolitano for refusing to meet with the ICE officers’ union. “I have never heard of a situation in which a group of law officers sued their supervisor, and you, for blocking them from following the law,” he said. “They weren’t complaining about pay, benefits, working conditions — they were saying their very oath they took to enforce the law is being blocked by rules and regulations and policies established from on high, and that this is undermining their ability to do what they are sworn to do.”

This woman is an enemy of the state. She gives more freedoms to illegals than nationalized citizens. Put her on the hemp rope short list.

Man oh man, this THING (aka Janet Napolitano) thinks it is god. Unbelievable! Law enforcement agents are supposed to have brains like any normal human being and if it means refusal to enforce an unconstitutional law or act, then they are in the right and their superiors are in the wrong. So GO F**K YOURSELF, JANET!!! It’s called doing the right thing. Not doing what you are told. We are NOT COMMUNIST SLAVES!! We are FREE Americans!! Go stick it where the sun don’t shine, THING!
Janet NAZItano, the sexual deviant who is “allowed” to employ her sexual partner, would be a total failure if her/his/IT’S mission was to SECURE these United States. But .what is this STEREOTYPICAL Nazi-LESBIAN-Camp-Guard’s true mission? The GOVERNMENT is the REAL terrorist because it keeps using threats of violence(carried out by those LET IN by the government) to steal our RIGHTS.
