AZ Sheriff Larry Dever Blasts DHS’s Reaction to Supreme Court Ruling on Immigration Law
Yesterday, the Supreme Court ruled that out of the four provisions in the Arizona immigration law, three were unconstitutional. The one remaining measure of the controversial law is the one that many liberals don’t like because it allows police to stop suspected illegal immigrants.
However, shortly after the ruling, the Department of Homeland Security issued a statement saying, “We have limited resources. It doesn’t make sense to spend all those resources in a scattershot or random fashion. Instead they need to be focused on individuals who pose a public safety threat or challenge the integrity of our borders.”
In other words, as Steve Doocy reports, protocol will be that when local police call ICE, they’ll look up the individual and if they have a felony, ICE will come pick them up. If they don’t have a felony on their record, then ICE will tell local police to let them go.
AZ Sheriff Larry Dever weighed in on the Department of Homeland Security’s reaction on Fox and Friends, saying, “The people they slapped in the face were not only the people of Arizona, but the people of this country, we the people, and then the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court is the one who ruled on this and they act like a bunch of school children.”
Dever said he’ll continue to bring illegal immigrants directly to ICE offices. “If they [Border Patrol] won’t come get people, we take them to them. And we take them to the doorstep, and say, ‘You tell the American public you’re not going to do anything.’ I’m going to go at least that far,” he added.
