    AZ Sheriff: DHS Memo 'Basically Instructing' Agents Not to Enforce Immigration Law

    AZ Sheriff: DHS Memo 'Basically Instructing' Agents Not to Enforce Immigration Law



    on Breitbart TV 24 Nov 2014

    Pinal County, AZ Sheriff Paul Babeu (R) reported that a November 20th memo from the Department of Homeland Security was "basically instructing all federal agents and officers that they will not enforce immigration law," and that "the release from prison has already started," based on a call he received from ICE officials that they were releasing illegal immigrants convicted of crimes in his county on Monday's "Laura Ingraham Show."

    Babeu, who released the memo on Monday, characterized it as "basically instructing all federal agents and officers that they will not enforce immigration law. And it goes into great detail talking about prosecutorial discretion and saying only if, that the priority is if they committed murder, rape any of these serious violent felonies, that's the priority and it essentially gives a pass to the 20 million illegals who are here." And was a declaration to federal officials that "you're not going to be arresting anybody anymore."

    He also reported that it was "correct" that offenders like drunk drivers, sex offenders and drug and gun offenders were not top priorities and could stay in the US [such offenses are considered priority 2 offenses and should not be removed if they qualify for relief under US law, or are judged by officials to not be a threat to "national security, border security, or public safety"] "and they have been, they've released right in my county, Pinal County, Arizona released close to 500 criminals that were on their way to deportation this past year. Two of them were charged with murder, multiple convictions for child molestation, aggravated assault, armed robbery."

    Babeu also reported that "the release from prison has already started, this weekend, I got a call from ICE officials here and it's happening around the country...come to find out, they started releasing, they released up to 50 right here in my county...all across the country they're releasing them from prison," adding that these offenders were the "worst of the worst."

    Babeu further stated "He [Obama] didn't put us first he put people from a foreign country who disrespected our law, disrespected our process, and now they're going to be all eligible, lawfully, not just for Social Security cards, but for work permits, welfare, and housing." And "people shouldn't be scratching their heads, wondering why my deputies when we're arresting people here for state crimes that they freely admit they've been deported 10 times, 14 times, 16 times, because there's no consequence, there is no law when it comes to immigration."

    DeFacto Amnesty for All Aliens?


    Lynne LaMaster



    Obama administration promotes "prosecutorial discretion" for handling illegal aliens in letter released by Sheriff Paul Babeu.


    Pinal County, Ariz. - Sheriff Paul Babeu released DHS’s newest internal memorandum containing directives on apprehending, detaining and removing illegal aliens, Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson.

    In addition to rescinding and superseding five previous memoranda, the Nov. 20th, 2014 memorandum provides directives to all federal enforcement in Customs and Border Patrol to use prioritization and prosecutorial discretion for all of the estimated 11-20 million illegals; not just the five million President Obama stated.

    After blaming a lack of resources and admitting the federal government’s failure to handle this country’s immigration issues, the directive encourages prioritization of enforcement for only the most violent criminal offenders, who are illegally living within the United States.

    The directive also promotes prosecutorial discretion – a law enforcement agency’s ability to choose to enforce a law or not – for officials when deciding whether to “issue, serve, file, or cancel a Notice to Appear” in immigration cases, but also when determining “whom to stop, question, and arrest; whom to detain or release; whether to settle, dismiss, appeal, or join in a motion on a case; and whether to grant deferred action, parole, or a stay of removal instead of pursuing removal in a case.” Through this prioritizing and prosecutorial discretion, these directives provide for amnesty for all illegal aliens by removing every expectation for federal officials to enforce the immigration laws of United States.

    This directive is not effective until Jan. 5, 2015, yet ICE has already started releasing hundreds of illegals across the nation this past weekend who are currently incarcerated and on their way to deportation. ICE is concealing this information and will likely defend their action by saying these criminal illegals are non-violent, non-felons and do not pose a threat to the community. This action is on the heels of a mass Obama directed prison break of thousands of convicted criminals, many with serious felonies.
    Executive Action:

    Within this new departmental guide, there is a stunning lack of direction for the checking of documents to ensure an individual has been in the country for five or more years.

    In fact, the five years Obama promised the American people is not mentioned in the directive. Instead, federal officials are instructed to consider enforcement of current immigration laws if the individual in question cannot prove they have been in the country continuously since before Jan. 1, 2014.

    Sheriff Paul Babeu stated, “While the public and media’s attention was on President Obama's executive action, DHS simultaneously issued orders to ignore America's immigration laws. This directive is the ‘smoking gun’ showing ICE doesn't plan to arrest or take action on any of the nearly 20 million illegals already in the United States, which is far greater than the 5 million as stated by the President. President Obama makes illegals his priority, rather than securing the border and enforcing the law. Immigration laws will only sometimes be used for the most serious violent felons, while the nearly 20 million illegals get a free pass. This is not prosecutorial discretion, but an intentional and flagrant disregard of the law and we will all suffer the consequences.”

    Paul Babeu, Sheriff

    It seems that Obama does not fear republicans as much as democrats. The more republicans elected, the more brazen his immigration directives. What was missed in this campaign season recently passed? Preponderance of evidence is mounting.
