Martin Gould and Kathleen Walter begin an Aug. 19 Newsmax article this way:
President Barack Obama has finally come up with a plan for jobs, Arizona governor Jan Brewer said on Friday. The only problem is that it will only benefit illegal immigrants!
Brewer was leading the attack on the White House after details of a new deportation policy became clear. Officers have been told only to go after illegal aliens who have a criminal record and leave others alone.
That's a completely false interpretation of the immigration policy change that was recently implemented. The policy change simply invokes prosecutorial discretion to focus efforts in deporting illegal immigrants on those who have committed crimes. Similar prosecutorial discretion in deportation cases was excercised under the Bush administration.
