DoJ war against border enforcement continues
An Investor's Business Daily editorial from Tuesday reported on the latest installment in the Obama administration‘s ongoing war against border security and American sovereignty :
"Our misnamed Department of Justice has filed a lawsuit against an Arizona sheriff at the top of the administration's enemies list. Prosecute border sheriffs and sue states but protect the Black Panthers? Gotcha. The Justice Department has filed a lawsuit against the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office, the county itself and outspoken Sheriff Joe Arpaio. The suit alleges that the sheriff's office is in violation of civil rights laws by refusing for 17 months to fully cooperate with an investigation into police practices and jail operations... .... What makes the case interesting, as the Washington Examiner's Byron York reports, is that in September 2008, four months before the Obama administration took over and nine months before the Justice Department first informed Arpaio of its investigation, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) conducted its own investigation of Arpaio's office and procedures and found nothing inappropriate or illegal." The editorial went on to report another startling fact:
"While Arpaio is being persecuted, er, prosecuted by the Justice Department, Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu notes that when 3,000 National Guard troops were requested by Arizona law enforcement and both U.S. senators, the Obama administration sent a paltry 30. Incredible." The Obama administration has taken border non-enforcement to a whole new level. By refusing to offer reasonable assistance to law enforcement and by suing those who simply try to protect the border, the administration is, in effect, placing murderous drug cartels, human traffickers, and infiltrating Islamic terrorists above the safety of American citizens. Truly incredible. Questions about Obama's patriotism existed even before he was nominated as the 2008 Democrat presidential candidate. It is now painfully obvious that those fears were more than justified.
