The Head of the Immigration and Customs Enforment bureau (ICE) has announced that his federal agency may not even bother to process illegal aliens who are caught by the Arizona police. Not to be outdone, Janet Napolitano has announced that Homeland Security may also choose not to accept "immigrants" who are captured under the new law.
By definition, any individual ensnared by the Arizona immigration law is also guilty of breaking the federal immigration laws that ICE, in particular, is charged with enforcing. But it doesn't matter. Everyone is getting a federal "Get Out of Jail Free" card...written in Spanish.
Basically, ICE and Homeland Security are engaging in a bizarre form of racial profiling: choosing to release suspects based only on their appearance and the color of their skin.
It's not the law.
It's not justice.
And it's not acceptable.
