The Obama administration has tapped an outspoken critic of immigration enforcement on the local level to oversee and promote partnerships between federal and local officials. Harold Hurtt, a former police chief in Houston and Phoenix, has been hired as the director for the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Office of State and Local Coordination.

Starting July 6, Hurtt will supervise outreach and communication between ICE, local law enforcement agencies, tribal leaders and representatives from non-governmental organizations.

But 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.

He also, during his tenure as Houston police chief, criticized ICE's key program that draws on local law enforcement's support.

I found this story to be a bit on the editorial side, but this is still very interesting.

He's been selected as the liaison between local law enforcement et al and ICE and yet he seemingly has some tendencies that might clash with ICE. And clash with law enforcement for that matter, if law enforcement was actually upholding the law. All of this sounds to me like it's paving the way for the amnesty announcement.

And wow...$180,000 for this job? What ever happened to our humble civil servants? That's...a lot of money.

This is basically further proof Obama is an incompetent moron who has no idea what he is doing with the Presidency.

Change we can believe in
