VA Governor Blasts Feds on Immigration

I have been very critical of the Administration on its immigration enforcement and policy proposals. While a substantial part of the blame for failed immigration enforcement should rest on the Federal Government, Sanctuary Cities and States which refuse to communicate and cooperate with Federal officials, Groups like the ACLU which files lawsuits against those that do, and politicians from both parties that seek to get some percieved political advantage at the expense of our national interest deserve a much bigger piece of the blame.    

Gov. Timothy M. Kaine accused the federal government of abdicating its obligation to safeguard America’s borders from illegal aliens Tuesday.

Kaine said state and even local governments are feeling pressure to handle the nation’s immigration crisis because there has been “real bankruptcy at the federal level on this issue.”

He said on his live monthly show on WTOP radio in Washington, D.C., that it’s an outrage that the federal government knows its immigration enforcement laws don’t work, yet Congress won’t pass new ones that will.

Here is one example of what I mean about States and Cities hindering Immigration enforcement.

DHS sues Illinois for blocking immigrant crackdown

The Homeland Security Department is suing Illinois to undo a new state law the federal agency says would make it more difficult to enforce the nation’s immigration laws.

The law is an amendment to Illinois’s “Right to Privacy in the Workplace Act” which would make it impossible, says Homeland Security, for employers to participate in a voluntary federal program many currently use to verify whether new employees are legally entitled to work in the U.S.
