MSNBC's Jose Diaz-Balart asked Barack Obama, "How do you ensure that ICE and Border Patrol won't be deporting people like this. What are the consequences?" And Obama answered that agent would have trouble. "The bottom line is that if somebody's working for ICE," Obama said, "and there's a policy, and they don't follow the policy, there's going to be consequences to it. So I can't speak to a specific problem. What I can talk about is what's true in the government generally. In the U.S. military, when you get an order, you're expected to follow it."So let me get this straight. If you are an illegal immigrant, in other words, you have broken multiple federal and state laws by crossing our border without permission, working illegally in our country, committing perjury by falsifying various government forms in order to continue working, collect government benefits, etc, you will not be prosecuted under the guise of "prosecutorial discretion".
But if you are an agent of the Federal Government, and you enforce the law as written and upheld by a federal judge, then there will be consequences.
And no one on the left side of the political spectrum sees a problem with this?
