Obama and his Anti-American Holder Justice Department are not enforcing the immigration laws, but are targeting US citizens in Arizona. With Democrat controlled states or cities where "illegal immigrant" sanctuary is the policy, the Justice Department says that they are safe and will not be a target of the federal government.
Again, Obama is again playing politics and not enforcing the law. He is catering to the illegals who he hopes will vote for him and the Democrat Party through fraud (...but they do not care about our Constitution). A week after suing Arizona and arguing that the state's immigration law creates a patchwork of rules, the Obama administration said it will not go after so-called sanctuary cities that refuse to cooperate with the federal government on immigration enforcement, on the grounds that they are not as bad as a state that "actively interferes."
"There is a big difference between a state or locality saying they are not going to use their resources to enforce a federal law, as so-called sanctuary cities have done, and a state passing its own immigration policy that actively interferes with federal law," Tracy Schmaler, a spokeswoman for Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr., told The Washington Times. "That's what Arizona did in this case."
But the author of the 1996 federal law that requires states and localities to cooperate with federal authorities on immigration laws thinks the administration is misreading the statute and that sanctuary cities are in violation of federal law. Drawing a distinction between those localities and Arizona, he said, is "flimsy justification" for suing the state.
"For the Justice Department to suggest that they won't take action against those who passively violate the law, who fail to comply with the law is absurd," said Rep. Lamar Smith of Texas, the ranking Republican on the House Judiciary Committee and chief author of the 1996 immigration law. "Will they ignore individuals who fail to pay taxes? Will they ignore banking laws that require disclosure of transactions over $10,000? Of course not."
A spokeswoman for Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. says sanctuary cities that refuse to enforce federal immigration laws will not face lawsuits like Arizona, which has passed a law on illegal immigrants.

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer and other critics said that sanctuary cities--localities that refuse to check on someone's legal status or won't alert immigration authorities when they encounter illegal immigrants-- are just as guilty of creating a patchwork of laws, and violate the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996.
Once again,The White House is just plain wrong on the law since the Arizona law mirrors federal law and Obama is just trying to gain more support with Hispanics.
Sanctuary policies encourage more criminal, human trafficking, and drug violence in our cities and nation. We must put our military on the border to control our borders and start targeting illegals so they do not get jobs or any government support from the tax payers.

Judicial Watch filed a California Public Records request last week with the San Francisco Sheriff’s Department to obtain arrest and booking records related to Edwin Ramos, an illegal alien who was charged with a June 22, 2008, triple murder of three innocent American citizens.
Sanctuary for illegal aliens must end — it is a matter of life and death.
