OK, so the DHS will deport criminal illegal aliens caught and processed. It also says it doesn’t need cooperation from states to do so. So far, so good. The problem is that although the DHS seems capable of a de facto slapdown of the “sanctuary cities” nonsense they don’t do so in a straight forward mannner. Meanwhile, in other branches of the government the search is on for ways to let more illegals in. So Pettifogging government paperwork meets zealous enforcement meets bureaucracy meets “legal” obsturction. What a mess.
