Law enforcement not high on Colorado AG Priority list

From the Denver Post 

Colorado Attorney General John Suthers – citing a lack of funding – has not been enforcing one of the legislature’s centerpiece laws to get tough on illegal immigration.

The new statute orders the attorney general to pursue civil fines of at least $50,000 from people who forge documents to help illegal immigrants get jobs. Local authorities are responsible for pursuing criminal convictions, and forgery remains a crime.

But Suthers’ office has not hired the employee approved by the law, has not pursued civil cases of alleged forgery and has not collected any fines.

“We are eager to begin enforcing this statute,” said Kristen Holtzman, a spokeswoman for Suthers. “However, without the resources to do so, it’s not possible. We are looking for ways to fund it.”

The attorney general’s office, however, did not contact local law enforcement officials about forgery cases to pursue until Tuesday – after a reporter called with questions about the law.

“We have made an inquiry of the district attorneys to see what civil cases might be out there that we could begin taking a look at so we might be about to recoup the costs,” Holtzman said.

Suthers’ failure to pursue cases sooner troubles top statehouse Democrats.

“I’m very surprised that the attorney general, of all people, is not following the law,” said Senate President Joan Fitz-Gerald, D-Jefferson County. “I am disappointed that he would not get on the issue of people who are making fraudulent documents.”

Doing a simple google search of Colorado Attorney General John Suthers will show a couple interesting links. Like this one:

Colorado Attorney General John Suthers Apologizes To Saudis

Colorado Attorney General John Suthers traveled to Saudi Arabia to apologize. Apologize for the American justice system and virtually everything else that America stands for.

Suthers went to Saudi Arabia to apologize for the conviction of Homaidan Al-Turki. Just before Labor Day, Al-Turki was sentenced to 27 years to life in a Colorado prison for keeping a slave and raping her, among other crimes.

It seems to me that the Colorado AG needs to get his priorities in order. He is the chief Law Enforcement Officer of the State of Colorado not the Chief apologist.

    Every year, municipalities and counties of every state will declare thousands of things to be illegal, some of which were perfectly legal beforehand. Cherokee County, Georgia, just got done declaring something illegal that is already against the law.

    […] _________________ The Democrats may have a tiny majority, but they still will not be able to open up our country and grant Amnesty without the help of Republicans and their own conservative collegues.This is where the battle is. This is where we need to be unrelenting with our pressure. In the battle over illegal immigration the Dems are clearly not on the side of Americans…….They are siding with another country. Will we let them get away with it? Democracy works because we take part …….Time to get busy! Others who ARE BUSY! CommonSenseAmerica knows the Chocolate we’re getting.
