In Arizona, the Feds are trying to tell the Maricopa County Sheriff that he can no longer do sweeps and pick up illegals for delivery to the Feds for deportation. Part of the reason given is that, in most places, the sheriffs are apparently slackers and only deliver illegals who have been caught in the process of committing some other crime.
So since he goes that extra step and tries to catch the illegals (who are already committing a crime by being here illegally
In a somewhat related note, I heard that our immigration and Homeland Security forces are going to be trying to come up with a classification system for illegals so that they can house the 'not dangerous' ones in hotels and such rather than incarcerating them and using up valuable prison space. TO me, this seems to be a backdoor way of beginning to legalize those folks--very tricky on the part of Napolitano.
