Attoney General's aren't supposed to enforce the law

From a memo put out by Oregon attorney general Hardly Matters.

We have been given no reason to believe any person to be interviewed has violated any law, including any federal immigration statute. If, in the course of the interview, the state investigator develops a suspicion the interviewee may be in violation of federal immigration laws, the investigator should ask no further questions relating to such possible violation.

It's like the corrupt cop who walks in on the mafia beating someone to death but says "I didn't see nothing" and walks back out.

I work in government (I'll leave it at that). I've been told that if we discover someone is illegal, we are to ignore it and tell the "client" that, that doesn't matter. Services are still available for you and others in your situation. How about that? There is an upside to it, but I can't get into it here.
