Why appoint someone who would actually enforce the law?

    Its not law enforcements job to decide which laws they want to enforce, but Obama seems content with actively putting on a charade that he will enforce the law while he tries to sabotage any attempts to do so. The American people aren't going to buy this charade and they want the illegals out, blanket amnesty might as well be signing your own political retirement contract.

    Where do Liberals and Presidents that try and denigrate, influence and silence a news organization fit in world history?

    Oh yeah, totalitarian regimes.

    This is not surprising at all, coming from the two-faced and incompetent Obama!

    These illegal loving Democrats are up to no good, and they are not working in the best interests of the American people. Afterall, they don't want to alienate or upset their future voting base, which consists of a bunch of illegal people who shouldn't even be in the country.

    Hurtt, who served as chief in Houston until he resigned in December, criticized one of ICE's key programs involving local law enforcement during his tenure here and in his former role as head of the Major Cities Chiefs Association.

    Hurtt and the former mayor announced in spring 2009 that the city would participate in 287(g), provided it was confined to the city's jails. Hurtt steadfastly opposed having Houston officers question people in the field about their immigration status.

    Im surprised you didn't see it on mediamatters, in which they refute the claims by saying he allowed full access for ICE into the jails, which means nothing. I want ICE busting in on employers who hire illegals, housing units which allow illegals to stay, and any other places that illegals are residing. AKA enforcing the law.

    I didn't see any articles on CNN or MSNBC on this, which wouldn't completely surprise me.

    See that a better way of going about it. They are not question people on the street and getting a few random people. They instead are targetting the ablity of illegals to come here and stay here.
    They are taking away the ability to find a home and find a job for illegals. It is much more effective.

    Having the police check people on the street is a problem. It builds a huge distrust between them and in his case Hispanics since those are both cities that have a rather large Hispanic population and the majority of illegals are from Mexico in the boarder states.
    Now if they do something else against the law and they get arrested the jails are the correct place to check if they are illegal. He did it that way because he wanted the police to be able to there primary job the best they could and their primary job is to protect help the people. If the people will not trust the police they can not do their job effective.

    They aren't going to go after businesses or residential areas, they are going to go after only people who committed serious crimes to land themselves in jail. If a police officer suspects someone of being illegal they should be able to ask for identification.

    Then you will have an issue of entire ethinc groups of not trusting police. In this case Hispanics would not trust police. Also it is not the polices job to go after businesses like that and housing. That is ICE job. The local PD should not be going up and asking some random person to prove they are hear legally.

    ICE needs to put its resources going very hard after business and places that rent housing to illegals. Much more effective at stopping the stream. When those places are raid great chance to check for immegration status.

    I don't trust the police and I am a typical rural white person. I do think they need to go after employers and residential though.

    Which is what is ICEs job is and they should do it.

    But I would not want nor expect the HPD to do those raids and checks. Not their job. That is ICE job. Sad part is ICE does a pretty poor job.

    And sadly, they're probably going to be doing an even worse job soon after this Obama appointee begins working there.
