|Obama discussing immigration policy|
An Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agent, an 18 year law enforcement and military veteran, has been threatened with a disciplinary suspension for attempting to enforce a law that the Obama administration apparently doesn't want enforced! The agent apprehended a 35 year old illegal who had about 10 outstanding traffic violations, near Newark, Delaware but was told by his superiors to let him go- when the agent balked, he was threatened with the disciplinary suspension! The illegal was released. Newark police have said that had it been an American citizen that they had stopped under the same circumstances, that citizen would have gone to jail.
“The actions that it appears were taken by your agency send a message to agents in the field that they will be punished for doing their duty and enforcing the law. Federal law enforcement should certainly not be giving illegal aliens more preferential treatment than that afforded American citizens" he wrote. . “Your agency’s apparent treatment of the criminal alien sends the troubling message that the demands of public safety are trumped by the desire for reduced deportations of those deemed ‘not presidential priorities.’”
According to another article in THE DAILY CALLER:
Illegal aliens who have been released from custody between 2008 and mid-2011 have been charged with 16,226 subsequent crimes, including 19 murders, 142 sex crimes and thousands of drunk-driving offenses, drug-crimes and felonies, according to a new report from the nonpartisan Congressional Research Service.
