Screening Immigrants in the Gulf Cleanup

A suburban New Orleans Sheriff is screening for illegal immigrants among the BP clean-up workers:

“St. Bernard Parish Sheriff Jack A. Stephens says in a news release that his department asked Immigration and Customs Enforcement weeks ago to look into the reports.

Stephens says he wants to protect the community from “criminal elements” seeking to establish “criminal enterprises.” He says “we’re not worried about people who want to earn an honest buck.”

Setting up checkpoints goes even further than the Arizona law. Any bets on how long it will take federal officials to try to stop him?
