OBAMANATION: No "E" in DHS enforcement!

From the Washington Post:
"Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano has delayed a series of proposed immigration raids and other enforcement actions at U.S. workplaces in recent weeks, asking agents in her department to apply more scrutiny to the selection and investigation of targets as well as the timing of raids, federal officials said."

In other words slow down and cutback on enforcement. Now why would Homeland Security Secretary Napolitano try to delay and cutback on enforcement of our nation's laws?

"The raids have enraged Latino community and religious leaders, immigrant advocates and civil liberties groups important to the Democratic base, who have stepped up pressure on Obama to stop them."

Wuups there it is! So it's not really about enforcing U.S. laws and doing what's right for the country it's about doing what right for the Democratic Party. I wish the Obama administration would come to it's senses and understand that enforcement is not the problem when it comes to illegal immigration. It's the lack of enforcement that is the cause of the problem! Or as Leigh H. Winchell, the ICE special agent in charge in Seattle, wrote in an e-mail to his staff :

"You did nothing wrong and you did everything right," "I cannot control the politics that take place with these types of situations, but I can remind you that you are great servants of this country and this agency."

Mr. Leigh is spot on about the dedicated ICE agents. I wish I could say the same about Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and the Obama Administration.
