Obama's Arizona Immigration Law Hypocritical Lie

President Obama told a crowd in Ottumwa, Iowa:
Now,suddenly, if you don't have your papers, and you took your kid out to get ice cream, you're going to get harassed -- that's something that could potentially happen... That's not the right way to go.
A lie, actually, unless you steal the ice cream or commit some other crime while doing so, and are here illegally, in which case, you have every reason to expect the federal government Obama heads to "harass" you as well.

The federal government's Secure Communities Program checks the fingerprints of suspects during the process of a normal arrest, even when they are arrested by police officers in Arizona.

President Obama's 2010 budget expands the Secure Communities program.
