Ban Homeland Security- Now.

Here is just another example of why Home Land Security must be abolished.

COLUMBIA -- Gov. Nikki Haley said Friday that South Carolina's two dozen illegal immigration enforcement agents were blocked by the Obama administration from enforcing the state's law banning business from hiring undocumented workers.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security, part of President Barack Obama's Cabinet, told the state it could not use E-Verify documentation to enforce South Carolina's immigration law. But Thursday's U.S. Supreme Court ruling on a similar law in Arizona upheld a state's right to rely on the online system that uses Social Security numbers to screen new workers to see if they are legally in the country.

More than 200,000 businesses use E-Verify, and it is considered the most reliable source in South Carolina, where about half of the driver's licenses from other states don't pass muster. The U.S. Supreme Court found E-Verify to be the best and most efficient way for employers to verify an individual's work eligibility.
