It's illegal for state and or local law enforcement to do exactly what is stated.[/QUOTE]
No, the issue is that B. Hussein and his corrupt crew of skumbags has decided to selectively enforce the law. Either you're OK with that or you don't understand what is being done.
From the same story.
[U]The Obama administration quickly moved to deflate the remaining provision.[/U]
By Monday afternoon, the Department of Homeland Security had pulled back on a program known as 287(g), which allows the feds to deputize local officials to make immigration-based arrests. According to a Homeland Security official, the administration has determined those agreements are "not useful" now in states that have Arizona-style laws. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has since rescinded that agreement in Arizona -- with the state itself, and with three local law enforcement agencies.
The move means that even if local police step up immigration checks, they'll have to rely on federal officials to make the arrests.
And federal officials made clear that ICE would be selective in responding to the expected rise in calls from Arizona and other police agencies about immigration status. Officials said ICE will not respond to the scene unless the person in question meets certain criteria -- such as being wanted for a felony.
