Someone Needs To Tell John Morton, the Head of ICE: You’re Fired

May 21, 2010

My latest posty at NewsReal:

So, not only did the Democrats in Congress cheer, applaud and give standing ovations to a foreign leader disparaging America and American citizens from OUR House floor, but now the people they’ve put in charge as law enforcers don’t seem to understand the words ‘law’ nor ‘enforce‘. Or, they just think it doesn’t count if you think something is meany pants.

Morton said his agency will not necessarily process illegal immigrants referred to them by Arizona officials. The best way to reduce illegal immigration is through a comprehensive federal approach, not a patchwork of state laws, he said.

“I don’t think the Arizona law, or laws like it, are the solution,” Morton said.

That’s right. He openly says that he, the head of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) may not enforce the very laws he is to entrusted to uphold. It’s his job to uphold them. But, nope, he thinks the laws are yucky, so he’s going to cross his arms, sit in the corner, pouting, and refuse to do his job. At our expense.

Hey, Morton, I don’t think Obamacare nor laws like it,  are the solution. So, I may “not necessarily process the insurance I’m mandated to purchase.” Is that cool with y’all? The difference is, that I could come up with an alternate workable solution to that boondoggle. What are you or the Obama administration doing about illegal immigration? Besides demagoguing a state, who were forced into trying to fix their immense problem without federal help, I mean.

Senator Sessions responded today and good on him.

Senator Sessions rightly pointed out that the administration looks like it is “nullifying existing law.” And further, that if “[Morton] can’t enforce the law, he shouldn’t have the job. That is the top immigration enforcement position in America, he is required in my view to seek the help he can to enforce the law, and to reject the help of the law officers in Arizona – and all over America for that matter – makes him in my view not fulfilling the responsibilities of his office.”

Precisely. It should be noted, however, that John Morton doesn’t appear to be acting alone.

According to Fox, when reached for comment, DHS responded by acknowledging that what Morton said was true and then added that “[t]he President ordered DOJ to examine the civil rights and other implications of this law. That review will inform the government’s actions going forward.”

Will inform the government’s actions going forward? I suppose we should just be grateful that someone in the administration may now actually read the bill.  Wow. How far the bar has been lowered.  Now, however, it’s time to lower the boom on those who refuse to do their jobs. As taxpayers, we should insist – Morton, You’re Fired.

    There is no “t” in Moron. Nice Bumpersticker eh? Nyuck nyuck nyuck!

    President O-hole is going to end up with egg on his face when Arizona boycotts LA and cuts 25 per cent of its power being provided right now.

    And further, he will have more chicken guck on his face when the DOJ reviews finds the law is not in violation of anything except President O-hole’s marxist agenda. Just like Guantanamo and his poorly written health care bill….sound the retreat you morons.

    Bear1909 out.

    John Morton doesn’t need to “think”. His job is to enforce the immigration laws. Lead, follow or get the hell out of the way, John.

    Arizona can boost their economy by housing all illegals they find: Build more jails.

    Illegal? Gotta choice: GO BACK HOME to Mexico (or wherever)… or rot in our brand new jail until you make the correct decision to GO BACK HOME.

    simple
