Ice has said they will not process illegals so did this guy just get a get out jail card will Obama criticize this arrest ?A man accused of shooting two revelers at a New Year's party in Arvada has been indicted by a federal grand jury.

Francisco Ornelas-Camacho, 20, was indicted Monday on possession of a firearm by an illegal alien, according to a media release from the U.S. Attorney's Office.

Ornelas-Camacho was living in Thornton at the time of the double shooting and is a citizen of Mexico, according to the release.

He also faces two counts of attempted murder, and two counts of assault resulting in serious bodily injury.

Ornelas-Camacho is being held in the Jefferson County Jail.

"As a result of the shooting, the federal indictment alleges that the defendant knowingly possessed one or more firearms while being an alien who was illegally and unlawfully in the United States," according to the release.

The shooting happened on January 1 at about 2 a.m. in the 6400 block of West 80th Drive, at the Lake Arbor subdivision, according to police.

According to police, Ornelas-Camacho fled the scene and was arrested later that day.

The victims, both men, are ages 21 and 23. A motive in the shooting was not released.

If convicted, Ornelas-Camacho faces not more than 10 years in federal prison, and up to a $250,000 fine. He also faces possible deportation after any punishment on the state and federal levels.


For further proof, take a look at the little-noticed ICE website unveiled last week with new policy changes and summaries of the major “detention reforms and accomplishments of the last year.” Click on the link and you’ll find that five of the seven new policies that Morton touts as “accomplishments” involve not enforcing immigration law by making it harder to arrest them, catching-and-releasing them, or creating new loopholes for avoiding detention and deportation..

    This is what happens when you place left-wing civilians in charge of Law Enforcement Agencies. Thomas Morton is a piece of garbage, as are Napolitano and Obama. Rather than INSIST that ICE does its job to the fullest extent, they hinder us every step of the way.

    Here is a news article that basically sums it up. Remember, these are our elected/appointed leaders- ICE Agents perform their duties to the best of our abilities.

    Top Official Says Feds May Not Process Illegals Referred From Arizona

    A top Department of Homeland Security official reportedly said his agency will not necessarily process illegal immigrants referred to them by Arizona authorities.

    A top Department of Homeland Security official reportedly said his agency will not necessarily process illegal immigrants referred to them by Arizona authorities.

    John Morton, assistant secretary of homeland security for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, made the comment during a meeting on Wednesday with the editorial board of the Chicago Tribune, the newspaper reports.

    "I don't think the Arizona law, or laws like it, are the solution," Morton told the newspaper.

    The best way to reduce illegal immigration is through a comprehensive federal approach, he said, and not a patchwork of state laws.

    The law, which criminalizes being in the state illegally and requires authorities to check suspects for immigration status, is not "good government," Morton said.

    In response to Morton's comments, DHS officials said President Obama has ordered the Department of Justice to examine the civil rights and other implications of the law.

    "That review will inform the government's actions going forward," DHS spokesman Matt Chandler told Fox News on Friday.

    Meanwhile, DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano said ICE is not obligated to process illegal immigrants referred to them by Arizona authorities.

    "ICE has the legal discretion to accept or not to accept persons delivered to it by non-federal personnel," Napolitano said. "It also has the discretion to deport or not to deport persons delivered to it by any government agents, even its own."

    Morton, according to a biography posted on ICE's website, began his federal service in 1994 and has held numerous positions at the Department of Justice, including as a trial attorney and special assistant to the general counsel in the former Immigration and Naturalization Service and as counsel to the deputy attorney general.

    Border apprehensions in Arizona, where roughly 500,000 illegal immigrants are estimated to be living, are up 6 percent since October, according to federal statistics. Roughly 6.5 million residents live in Arizona.

    Obama says that the Arizona law inherently promotes racial profiling and is racist (heavily inferred) And that Midget El Presidente Calderoni of Mexico is a puppet of the DNC! Mouthing off their talking points like a jack***, blaming Vicente Fox for all the problems! Just like his hero Obongo...just blame Bush! So Obama is a liar! So is Calderon! And the people supporting these apes should be ashamed of themselves because Obama is acting in any way he can to destroy this country! He is the enemy within, demonizing the average, God-fearing, tax paying, working class Citizen whose wages are depressed further by the influx of CHEAP FOREIGN LABOR! Obama is a traitor to the American people! and should be REMOVED FROM OFFICE as soon as possible for the good of the country!

    While it's true that John Morton has stated he will not enforce the enforcement laws of Az. (fox News 5/21/10 "Bill Chill Hits Az") , JANET has stated the reason DHS will be using "discretion" in choosing how to enforce laws, is to focus on going after the "criminal" illegals (ignoring that they are all criminals). So if she is to be believed, this man will have her total focus to convict and sentence. All of these directives come from Barrack Hussein, and smack of federal illegality. Pres. Hussein, you are treading impeachable waters. Our country's new "UNHOLY TRINITY": Obama, Napolitano, and Morton.

    Nope. It means he gets 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. Ten years from now, who knows who'll be president and what they'll be doing about deportation.

    Can you post the link of ICE saying that they "will not process illegals?"

    Still not seeing on the website where it states that ICE has decided as an agency not to its job.

    Did see this though:

    "ICE’s Criminal Alien Program (CAP) is responsible for identifying, processing and removing criminal aliens incarcerated in federal, state and local prisons and jails throughout the United States, preventing their release into the general public by securing a final order of removal prior to the termination of their sentences, when possible."

    I've waited for a long time for one of these so-called Americans, (liberal bleeding hearts), to give me a comprehensive answer as to what benefit to America is allowing illegals to continue to invade our country? The answer is zero. It is strictly for democratic votes by invaders who have acquired false documentation. Selfishness is the reason. Period.
