Mr. Speaker, Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director John Morton said of his agency that they would "not necessarily process undocumented immigrants referred to them by Arizona officials." Homeland Security Secretary Napolitano said the government is not obligated to deport illegals captured by Arizona law enforcement.

So let's get this straight: The government doesn't adequately enforce border security laws and now won't allow Arizona to help do it either. It looks like the administration is AWOL on this national security issue.

Now, isn't that lovely? It seems like the Feds need all the help they can get. The administration keeps saying Arizona law is not the answer; comprehensive immigration reform is the answer. What that means is the administration would rather give out amnesty than secure the border.

If ICE won't answer law enforcement calls from Arizona, maybe the IRS shouldn't collect taxes from Arizona either. Give the people of Arizona their Federal taxes back and let them do the job the administration refuses to do. But we can't do that. That might make President Calderon unhappy.

And that's just the way it is.
