Rule of Law, not Rule by Decree of Your Betters

Upstanding Americans sue to prevent the Federal Govt from requiring it's own agents to break Federal Law by imposing, by fiat and without legislation passed by Congress and signed by the President, a requirement to let illegal immigrants escape arrest, prosecution, and deportation.

This lawsuit is based on the core principle that no administration, Republican or Democrat, should order federal law enforcement agents to break federal law," says Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach

Quote:
Napolitano’s directive, Exercising Prosecutorial Discretion with Respect to Individuals Who Came to the United States as Children,” would make some illegal aliens immune to deportation proceedings if they meet certain criteria, such as coming to the U.S. before the age of 16 and maintaining a clean felony record. The order has already led to situations in which ICE agents have to choose between keeping step with the administration and carrying out their duty, the plaintiffs say.

According to the lawsuit filed today in the Dallas division of Texas District Court, ICE agent Samuel Martin was assaulted by an illegal alien who had been picked up from the El Paso County Jail by immigration officials and then tried to escape custody. The alien was released without charges under protest from the agents, who were told the action was according to the administration’s new immigration policies. Martin is now one of the plaintiffs in the case.
Napolitano is neither legislator, emperor, nor queen. She cannot simply declare we will not enforce a law, and that law enforcement must likewise violate the law.

Illegal means illegal.

If this is what is wanted, then pass it via normal legislation.

About time, I also think the defendants should be FINANCIALLY responsible for the losses caused by their action being they broke the law.

This should include those responsible for issuing orders found to be illegal. Immunity for govt officials is a prime enabler of action without true responsibilty.
