Shocked? I'm Not.

From this source comes a vulgar display of insult to injury:

The widow of a Houston police officer killed by an illegal immigrant was "shocked" to learn that the city's former police chief has landed a top immigration job with the Obama administration, her lawyer told on Friday. 
That's because Joslyn Johnson, whose husband, Rodney Johnson, was killed in 2006, is suing former Houston Police Chief Harold Hurtt for failing to enforce federal immigration laws. She claims her husband would be alive today if the city had bothered to check up on the gunman's immigration status. 
Now that Hurtt is taking a job to oversee partnerships between federal and local officials with Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Johnson -- and other critics -- say they're concerned the official who resisted immigration enforcement in Houston will now be in charge of promoting it. 
"She was shocked at the irony," Johnson's attorney, Ben Dominguez, said. 
As a police chief, Hurtt was a supporter of "sanctuary city" policies, by which illegal immigrants who don't commit crimes can live without fear of exposure or detainment because police don't check for immigration papers. During his tenure as Houston police chief, he criticized ICE's key program that draws on local law enforcement's support. He said in 2008 that local police "don't want to be immigration officers." He described that as a burden on the force. 

This is par for course for this administration.

Just more idiocy from the current inhabitants.

Quite frankly, I think this just shows what his immigration policy is - nonexistent.

If Joslyn Johnson doesn't watch it, she could be deported because her attitude isn't politically correct.

Really ... nothing surprises me any more. Well, I mean beyond the fact that the American people voted for BO44 in the first place. What a bunch of idiots. I wonder if Joslyn is one of those.

This is the position years of not securing our borders, by several administrations, has put us in ... it's a fookin' disgrace.

I can only shake my head in shame for one more inequity thanks to this administration.

Hayden said...

You see, Harold Hurtt has the perfect resume then, to work with Obama and help promote his socialist/communist to-do list.

I hadn't noticed yesterday, but I must've fat-fingered the title of this post while I was typing. Heh. It is now corrected.

Chuck: Immigration policy exists, but is only for show and never to be enforced by either party.

Sam: I believe that, in all seriousness, if the current administration could deport political dissenters they would. Illegals would be openly welcome.

Angel: Nor am I.

SB: It goes waaaaaaaay back.

Cube: The hits just keep on comin', don't they?

Hayden: Yepper. This administration goes out of its way to instal the worst possible picks for freedom, democracy, competency, ect.

cube said...

Yep, every single day.

The BHO administration goes in search of anyone to hire if that anyone doesn't support America and her Constitution.

Boethius said...

Oh, it must be such a burden on Hurtt, trying to prevent illegals from kidnapping and killing true American citizens. Certainly not worth his precious time. It's idiots like him that pushed Jan Brewer to make the law in the first place. And Obama is only pointing out his own failure to do his job by bashing her for doing what was necessary.

I couldn't agree more.
