Obama administration tries to stop local police from arresting illegal aliens

The Obama administration doesn't want to enforce the laws against illegal aliens and they apparently don't want others to do so either.

The sheriff's sweeps in some heavily Latino areas of metro Phoenix have drawn criticism that Arpaio's deputies racially profile people. Arpaio said people pulled over in the sweeps were approached because deputies had probable cause to believe they had committed crimes and that it was only afterward that deputies found many of them were illegal immigrants.
The U.S. Department of Justice is investigating Arpaio's office over allegations of discrimination and unconstitutional searches and seizures.
Arpaio said the Bush administration had no complaints about his use of the special federal powers, but all that has changed with the Obama administration.
"What's changed?" Arpaio asked. "Politics has changed, because they don't like us going on the streets to catch illegals."
This round of sweep, Arpaio's 12th, is set to end late Saturday.

Markie Marxist sez: "The law is the law, except when it's not! Not politically correct according to Marxist values, that is! Ha! Ha! All your illegal aliens are belong to us! And we're not giving them up until they're registered Democrats!"

It's getting almost no media attention here in the U.S.: The Obama administration is issuing entry visas to the Brazilian guerrillas/kidnappers of American ambassador Charles Elbrick in 1969. There was a long-standing policy of not letting those folks enter the United States ever again. It's specially odd that they are getting visas because the visa application asks whether the applicant has ever had terrorist training, ever broke any laws, ever plotted against American installations etc.
