Hello...Justice Department? Yeah...Who the hell is in charge there?

While the US Justice Department is busy suing a school district for denying a Muslim teacher with nine months on the job, a three-week vacation to travel to Mecca (denied because it would cause an undue hardship on the teaching needs of the small school), it is at the same time neglecting other more serious Constitutional obligations, oh like keeping illegal aliens from crossing our borders.

According to this exclusive (click on the link):

"An Arizona sheriff says U.S. Border Patrol officials have repeatedly told him they have been ordered to reduce -- at times even stop -- arrests of illegal immigrants caught trying to cross the U.S. border.

Cochise County Sheriff Larry Dever told that a supervisor with the U.S. Border Patrol told him as recently as this month that the federal agency’s office on Arizona's southern border was under orders to keep apprehension numbers down during specific reporting time periods.

“The senior supervisor agent is telling me about how their mission is now to scare people back,” Dever said in an interview with “He said, ‘I had to go back to my guys and tell them not to catch anybody, that their job is to chase people away. … They were not to catch anyone, arrest anyone. Their job was to set up posture, to intimidate people, to get them to go back.”

I guess this is the era of the kinder, gentler Justice Department.

Perhaps at some point in the near future, our esteemed President would be interested in presenting this lovely (and hopefully parting) gift to Eric Holder:
