Uh-oh! On January 9, 2006–her first day on the job, Julie L. Myers, Assistant Secretary for Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) a/k/a the “ICE Princess” wore a Mexican eagle pin. Not a good symbol about her intentions in enforcing our nation’s immigration laws.
It’s bad enough that the ICE Princess has decided to follow in the the Madeleine Albright tradition of wearing ugly brooches, but the Mexican Eagle?!
In fact, the pin was featured in Julie Myers’ official ICE photo that hangs in the offices of the Homeland Security agency, known as the “ICE Palace.” AND it was featured in the photo atop Myers’ online bio at ICE’s website. Observant ICE agents pointed out this glaring symbol of deadly open borders sported on Ms. Myers’ chest (over her heart). And someone must have also pointed it out to ICE’s public affairs, because they’ve now cropped the Mexican eagle out of the photo (you can still find the eagle if you click on her photo, but we’re sure they’ll soon crop that one, too).
They can crop the Mexican symbol all they want. It will not change a thing. Like everything else emanating out of Myers and ICE’s cornupcopia of PR, it’s merely cosmetic surgery with no change in mindset. The reality is that our nation’s top immigration official supports open borders and expanding guest workers programs, and she hasn’t done anything to stop the ever-increasing illegal immigration problem. Her Freudian slip of brooch choice said it all, which is why we’ve posted it here, where ICE PR cannot crop it out.
In case, Ms. Myers needs help telling the difference (and apparently she does), we’ve assembled some examples of the Mexican eagle (from various Mexican flags) with its wings pointed down versus examples of the more glorious American eagle with its wings bravely outstretched.
Here are the Mexican Eagles (just like your pin):
Here are the American ones, ie. YOUR country (try your local Walgreen’s):
