This is exactly the inter-agency cooperation that we need to enforce our laws and catch those illegally in the country.

Amazing how Iran can arrest 3 Americans they claimed were illegally in their county, however, we've had millions cross our borders?

"“The president has stated his priority is to target serious criminals for deportation and to move away from raids and roundups,” Gutierrez said.“But from what I heard about what happened in Jackson County and the participation of ICE in a traffic enforcement action, that doesn’t sound consistent with the president’s policies.”
The president’s policies do not supersede the LAW. The LAW says if you are in the country illegally you are a criminal and the LAW says that illegal aliens should be arrested and deported. Somehow it is o.k. to prosecute people for not wearing seat belts which is a victimless crime but prosecuting an illegal alien, a crime that makes victims of every single American citizen and immigrant is not allowed.

Well if illegal aliens didn't drive cars, IAW the law, they wouldn't have to worry about ICE at check points. STOP DRIVING!!!

That's what American gets when they go straying into Counties that have horrible diplomatic relations with the USA.

They won't stop driving nor will they stop entering the USA so in a sense, these check points might be rationalized if statistics can be compiled that the community in question has a high instance of illegal aliens.

In the end, it sends a strong message that an illegal immigrant is here only on borrowed time.

The point is they shouldn't be borrowing a minute of our time.

Checkpoints like that should be used more often and in every state!
