Don’t say I didn’t warn you about Harold Hurtt. Back in March, I broke the exclusive story that Hurtt, the fired Houston police chief, was Barack Obama’s and Janet Napolitano’s top choice to run Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Section 287 (g) program which works with state and local police and allows them to enforce immigration laws. And it was announced yesterday–as I predicted–that he got the job. No surprise to those who read me in March. Just a surprise to the folks at FOX News.

World of Hurtt: Illegal Aliens’ Best Friend Gets Key ICE Job
The program is also known as the Office of State and Local Coordination (OSLC). Now, the rest of the media–especially the blind and toothless mainstream conservative media–is catching up. But I told you Hurtt would get this job, months ago.
As I told you then, Hurtt not only spoke out against that program–testifying before Congress against police aiding in immigration enforcement, but was the key player in Houston’s sanctuary city status, prohibiting his police from enforcing immigration laws. That and his other carelessness made him a defendant in a lawsuit filed by the widow of one of his murdered cops, after two of them were shot and killed by illegal aliens. Hurtt built his career on open borders baloney and opposing enforcement of immigration laws, including and especially the very program he will now head up. It’s an incredible joke–like putting his boss, Napolitano, on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition.
And don’t forget Hurtt denouncing America and the Texas prison system on Al-Jazeera, the Terrorist News Network. The man is a disaster. Two very experienced career ICE agents with solid immigration enforcement experience were competing with Hurtt for the job, including the highly competent and qualified Matthew Albence, who would have been perfect for the job. But, clearly, those two White guys were never really in the running and were interviewed as a formality because the affirmative action pick, Harold Hurtt, was already the chosen one, no matter how incompetent. Call it ICE’s “anti-Rooney rule.” Someone asked me, today, if I think Barack Obama is a racist. With moves like this, I gotta say, “YES!”
Hurtt needed a job, and no other police force, including the San Francisco PD–where he applied–would hire him. They know how incompetent and damaging this guy is. So, in the ultimate of Obama stimulus packages for the incompetent, ICE hired him.
La Raza now has their man running America’s immigration (non-)enforcement.
