Arizona Bill Would Allow Racial Profiling to Find Illegal Immigrants

Incidentally, I’ve never heard of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano suspending raids on businesses that hire illegal immigrants. Can anyone back up David Webb’s “last word” with a website or other scintilla of evidence?

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.

    “increasing the focus on businesses and executives instead of ordinary workers.”

    Is that not a good thing? That’s not the end of raids. That’s a change to focus on employers rather than illegals and one I support.

    More from the same article you highlighted:

    “ICE is now scrutinizing these cases more thoroughly to ensure that [targets] are being taken down when they should be taken down, and that the employer is being targeted and the surveillance and the investigation is being done how it should be done,”

    Sounds good to me. Thanks for pointing out the article.

    Gabe you didn’t look that well this is from the Washington Post last year and things have not changed much.
    Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano has delayed a series of proposed immigration raids and other enforcement actions at U.S. workplaces in recent weeks, asking agents in her department to apply more scrutiny to the selection and investigation of targets as well as the timing of raids, federal officials said.

    A senior department official said the delays signal a pending change in whom agents at U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement choose to prosecute — increasing the focus on businesses and executives instead of ordinary workers.
    Napolitano’s moves have led some to question President Obama’s commitment to work-site raids, which were a signature of Bush administration efforts to combat illegal immigration. Napolitano has highlighted other priorities, such as combating Mexican drug cartels and catching dangerous criminals who are illegal immigrants.
    And Mark you seem quick to want to prosucute CEOs and those who create jobs, but you like Ms Pelosi and others find it hard to prosecuet those who break the law by coming into this country illegaly. Those poor people only come here to work boo hoo let them do the same as we have force their Govt. to make they country better. They take the short route and by- pass all the laws.

    Two days ago you asked for a “scintilla” of evidence that Janet Napolitano suspended workplace raids. After some investigation, here’s what I found: “We continue to do worksite enforcement; it’s important. Unless you enforce the immigration law on the demand side, which is primarily the employment side, you can’t say that you have a handle on the entire immigration problem. So you have to do worksite enforcement.” -Mrs. Napolitano in an interview with Politics Daily’s Walter Shapiro. I hope you bring this to Mr. Webb’s attention, and congrats on the weekly spot on Fox. Keep after them!
