    Immigration agents file suit against Napolitano over 'amnesty' program

    Ten federal immigration agents have filed suit against Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano claiming recent directives are forcing them to break the law and ignore their duties when it comes to deporting illegal immigrants.
    The suit was filed Thursday in Texas federal court by Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials. It challenges recent directives allowing some illegal immigrants -- particularly non-felons and those who came to the U.S. as children -- to stay and, in some cases, get work permits.
    The suit, obtained by Fox News, says the agents are being forced to "violate federal law." It says the new directive "unconstitutionally usurps and encroaches upon the legislative powers of Congress." ICE Director John Morton is also named as a defendant.
    Kris Kobach, lead attorney on the case, equated the move to give thousands of illegal immigrants a reprieve to the failed Fast and Furious gun-walking operation.
    "In both instances, the Obama administration ordered federal law enforcement agents to break the law, to ignore the laws that they're supposed to enforce, and, in the case of the ICE agents, to actually break federal laws that say you're supposed to deport certain people," he said. "And in each case, the Obama administration seems to be doing so for political reasons."

    It's a night and day difference between the current Governor of Arizona and the former Governor of Arizona...different jobs, same "goal", and two completely different ways of attaining that goal - a way that works, and a way that doesn't work.

    This country needs someone like the current Governor of Arizona to be in charge of Homeland Security, rather than the useless moonbat that is "occupying" that cabinet position.

    I hope they Judge shopped before they file the suit. This could be fast tracked to the SJC.
