Arizona's "cry for help" being rebuffed by those [supposedly] in charge of immigration enforcement

The Obama administration still KEEPING US STRONG!! [/sarcasm]

CHICAGO - Arizona's new law targeting illegal immigration is not "good government," a top Department of Homeland Security official said in Chicago on Wednesday.

John Morton, who heads U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, said his agency will not necessarily process illegal immigrants referred to them by Arizona officials. The best way to reduce illegal immigration is through a comprehensive federal approach, not a patchwork of state laws, he said.

"I don't think the Arizona law, or laws like it, are the solution," Morton said during a visit to the Chicago Tribune editorial board.

Great. So, Arizona's actually doing Morton's job in the first place, and now -- even though, again, AZ is doing his job -- he still WON'T DO HIS JOB!

I wonder -- has Morton read the Arizona law, unlike 1) Barack Obama, 2) Eric Holder, and 3) Janet Napolitano? Is he just parroting the standard administration line on the topic? Will Morton now hold a press conference with Mexican President Calderón too -- and let him (again) trash Arizona's law?
