Obama Takes his Ball, and Bat

Obama Takes his Ball, and Bat
And goes home
I remember when I was a little kid, sometimes the kid with the ball and bat wouldn’t get his way so he would simply go home and take his ball and bat with him, leavening the rest of us with nothing to play ball with.

Obama didn’t get his way with Arizona’s immigration law in the Supreme Court, so like a little kid he is leaving Arizona to fit for itself when it comes to protecting the state from a foreign invasion.  

On Monday, the same day that the Supreme Court upheld the heart of Arizona's SB 1070 illegal alien law, Obama retaliated and cancelled the Federal immigration enforcement partnership with that state.  The federal 287(g) program creates cooperation between the federal government and state and local police forces to identify and remove illegal aliens.  Arizona had been signed up with 287(g) for years, until Obama abruptly cancelled it, leaving the State with no ball and no bat.

As you know, Pres. Obama sued the state of Arizona to block S.B. 1070, the nations-leading bill that gave Arizona several ways to enforce immigration laws.  The Obama administration claimed that the federal government and only the federal government can enforce Federal laws.
Oh really???  Well first, if the federal government would do its constitutional job of protecting the states from this illegal invasion across our borders the states wouldn’t have to.  And second, my suggestion then is that all the states protect themselves and ignore ‘all’ the Federal laws and let Obama enforce them all by himself.  We can get our own ball and bat.  Secession anyone?  Anyone???

The court agreed that it is the Congress that must make immigration law, and it threw out several of the enforcement methods’ in SB 1070.  Yet the justices allowed the most important basic enforcement method to stand.  Arizona is permitted to require its police to check on immigration status of people who are already detained, such as in traffic stops.  If a person or persons are challenged, and cannot show that they are in the U.S. legally, the Supreme Court agrees that the state can enforce the basic Federal law, and turn illegal aliens over to federal officers, such as in 287(g).

How did the Obama administration react to the court's decision?  Did it   agree to work hard with Arizona law enforcement officials to remove illegal aliens from that state?  No, the administration retaliated by immediately canceling its 287(g) agreement with Arizona.  In effect, the people of Arizona were told, if you don’t play the game my way I will take my ball and bat and go home.  We will refuse to cooperate with you.  We will not even come to pick up the illegal aliens that you pick up in your state.

This is outrageous!  The whole purpose of 287(g) is to help local law enforcement remove illegal aliens they come across while enforcing state law.

Obama is doing, is warning the states that if they pursue their Supreme Court-affirmed right to enquire about immigration status, I will burn down their state and bring out the marshmallows!  Typical Muslim!

Obama insists that Congress must set all immigration policy.  Yet Obama isn't allowing Arizona to use one of the few means Congress has authorized, which is 287(g).  Ironically, the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) recognizes, on their website, the effectiveness of the 287(g) program:  Well…that’s why Obama doesn’t like it…pilgrim!

Terrorism and criminal activity are most effectively combated through a multi-agency/multi-authority approach that encompasses federal, state, and local resources, skills, and expertise.

Obama’s move is another action that is a violation of the U.S. Constitution and clearly violates the spirit of Congress.  It will set back immigration enforcement by years if left standing.  It must be undone.

Article IV section IV of the U.S. Constitution reads as follows:  The United
States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence.   

Obama has violated the constitution once again, the federal government, as is clearly stated in Article IV section IV of the U.S. Constitution is charged with protecting all the states against an invasion of any kind, that’s why it doesn’t specify a particular type of invasion. 

The States, on our southern border especially, are clearly experiencing an Invasion.  Mexicans who just want to earn a living, drug cartel members who kill Americans, and Middle Eastern terrorists who want to kill everyone, are pouring into this country, it is an invasion plain and simple just the way the Constitution describes it, and yet the federal government does less than nothing it even encourages it.  A ‘Writ of Mandamus’ should be filed against every member of congress and the President; none of them are doing the job they were elected to do, or upholding their oath of office.

Need more proof of what Obama’s agenda is my friend?  This is not an isolated case you see, just today Obama flatly refused to make good on another 287(g) partnership, this one with the State of Virginia, another constitutional enforcement-oriented state.  Obama doesn’t play well with others.

What's next?  Did you know that the military is practicing “Urban Warfare” in some American cities and towns?  No one seems to know why…

I know why… stay tuned!
