    (link below) are making the following points:

    1. Obama is preventing local law enforcement from enforcing state immigration laws saying that it's the federal government's responsibility.  Not quite sure if they know that local law enforcement still calls ICE when they think there's a problem with a person's standing and also I don't think they know Obama's deported more foreigners than any other president in history.

    2. They seem to think a Sheriff is the supreme law enforcement officer in a county, above state officers and above federal officers.  Not quite sure how they think this works, but, oh well.

    3.  They claim executive orders aren't laws so they don't have to be followed.  Again, there are plenty of executive orders that have the force of law because when the Executive branch has law enforcement responsibilities.  This is another example of their only being willing to follow the laws when they agree with the President - probably a lot of Libertarian voices this being Colorado and definitely a lot of hatred spewed in the comments about that Commie in the WHITE House.

    4.  They compare enforcement of medical marijuana laws and the new recreational marijuana laws to the federal laws still outlawing marijuana in all circumstances.  This one actually has some merit - the feds say marijuana is illegal through laws passed in Congress and the state says marijuana is legal, with Fort Collins not prosecuting those cases anymore.
