Bad Leadership Sours DHS Immigration Program

Does anybody gladly work with Obama on anything any more?

At the beginning of July, the Obama administration started its Priority Enforcement Program, a new approach to how the administration enforces the immigration laws, but it’s soured by DHS’s past immigration enforcement track record. It’s a failure in leadership: Local law enforcement and even groups that would have supported Obama’s immigration policies don’t trust his new enforcement effort. The supervising attorney for the Immigrant Legal Resource Center, Angie Junck, told The Washington Post, “We see this as DHS kind of rebranding to rebuild the trust they lost with a lot of local law enforcement agencies. We are very concerned that it will repeat the mistakes of the past.” Does anybody gladly work with Obama on anything any more? He’s lost so much trust. No wonder so many cities decided to go it alone and declare themselves sanctuary cities. Home rule is better than rule from a capricious federal government that is rewriting immigration law on the fly by “prioritizing” certain types of deportations. The Obama administration has exacerbated the problems with immigration by destroying the cooperation and trust between levels of government.
