Instead of actually enforcing immigration laws, it appears the job of top Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials is to spread a campaign of lies on media tours.
At least that seems to be the view of incompetent ICE chieftess Julie L. Myers, Secretary of ICE, a/k/a “The ICE Princess.” The ICE Princess made so many propaganda appearances on FOX News recently, it made our heads spin. It also made us wonder for what office she is campaigning.
And that’s what it’s all about a PR campaign against illegal aliens, but not a real one. She believes that as long as she is getting attention and getting on camera, we will believe it. But to paraphrase one of our fave Presidents, Abraham Lincoln, you cannot fool all of the people all of the time.
E-mail has been overflowing with apt criticisms of The ICE Princess’ appearances, yesterday on Neil Cavuto’s show and this morning on Fox & Friends. There were so many lies, we found more use for our sets of Wacky Packs.
We’d love to debate her, but she couldn’t handle it and wouldn’t dare. Here’s what one reader said (and he is NOT an ICE agent in the know):
Your ICE Princess was on Cavuto yesterday. Julie talked about how ICE is going to be cracking down on document fraud & how wide-spread it is & how easy it is to get. (No s–t, Sherlock.) I got the impression she JUST learned about this.
Cavuto mentioned about the last raid ICE did with the 1200 illegals & she said ALL were deported except for a few (got sick hearing this lie, cause didn’t ICE hold only 200 & let the rest gooooooooo?) So I was too livid watching her to HEAR what other b.s. she said.
Yes, indeed, almost all of those arrested at IFCO Systems were released with a Notice to (Dis)Appear, and this is after she ordered hundreds of other illegal detainees released from Detention and Removal Operations nationwide, to make temporary room for the show-arrestees. Your tax dollars–and her phony PR campaign against illegals–at work.
Ditto for the fight against document fraud, since we know of investigations that her various ICE Special Agents in Charge ended, because they did not care about the document fraud.
Another reader was angry at similar lies on “FOX & Friends”:
Wake up….Ice Princess Spinning on Fox News…6:15 a.m……..Steve getting jiggy with her….
And finally, there is this from a wife of an ICE Agent (when Myers was nominated, we didn’t realize how prophetic we were when we subtitled it “Desperate ICE-Wives“):
As a wife of an “ICE” Officer, I hear it from
everyone. You have no idea how many officers in Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) feel the same way that your friend, Scott James of the Border Patrol, feels. They wish they could financially be able to quit their jobs due to the the lack of support. Most feel like they’re doing their jobs for nothing. They all know that the situation has gotten out of control and no matter how hard they work, there’s always another ag-felon illegal alien to catch. Our jails can’t hold all of them because, believe me, my husband tried to fill’em. I believe the only possible solution is to close off the borders, but then the terrorist have won then, and we are no longer a free society.
We don’t have enough jail space in our jails to hold all the really bad illegals, let alone all the ones who haven’t committed murder, rape, etc. It costs American Taxpayers $50 per day to house an illegal in jail. That’s not the bad part. Once in jail we then become responsible to pay all medical, dental, and optical care. I know of one illegal that our government paid out millions of dollars in medical bills for several heart surgeries–for one prisoner. The man was too weak to deport. If you jail all of them then you are running into a huge can of worms. These people come to our country because we are still considered the “Land of Opportunity”. There has to be another was to integrate these people into society but legally and we can’t do that until the borders are closed.
Tell your friend he’s not alone as everyone I’ve spoken to in Texas and Michigan feels the same way. The trick is to not give up and to communicate with your superiors. This president’s term will end and that’s why we limit the number of years a president can serve. And someone will come in who can realize what the people of the United State want.
Maybe some day, there will be hope. For now, The ICE Princess’ policies phony immigration policies remain EMPTY, ABSENT & HOPELESS.
