Personally I thought Obama would choose this idiot to head up Immigrations & Customs Enforcement, but this guy is the next best thing — in a wildly counterproductive kind of way:

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 on the issue.

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.

It’s a $180,000 a year gig. Our money will be well spent once again.

Next, look for Cindy Sheehan to get the nod for Secretary of Defense.

    So I guess La Raza chairman, Daniel R. Ortega was unavailable for the position.

    What slays me about this whole issue, the majority of the democrat constituency is against these illegals, but they blindly keep voting D.

    Because they know if they don't Pelosi will pull their thumbs out of their mouths and coat them with cod liver oil.

    Snapped Shot was down for an extended period this morning—Our hosting provider, ServerPronto, is very apologetic, and promises that it won’t happen again—and I’ve spent most of the afternoon in meetings, so I’m pretty behind on what’s going on toda…

    My middle son joined the Houston PD and was promoted to Lieutenant in less than ten years, which is phenomenal. Hurrt was the chief of police. Terry (my son) became so outraged at Hurrt's continual instructions to NOT enforce the law and his coddling of other minority law-breakers, Terry quit the force and is now a member of ICE. AND HERE COMES THAT STUPID BASTARD AGAIN!!!!
