Even before I began hearing from outraged, demoralized ICE agents, their families, and their union, I was already outraged by the latest behavior of Barack Hussein Obama’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) chief John the Moron Morton. Last week, he attacked his own agents for doing their jobs, and he made his attacks during a personal appearance at a Muslim-dominated tax-funded agency that brings Muslim illegal aliens into the country, helps them stay here and evade authorities, and helps them rip off Medicaid and other government entitlements. Oh, and the agency also gave job training to the Detroit terror cell. Congrats, Dhimmi Morton. Remember, this jerk is the Assistant Secretary of Homeland Security. (As you may recall, in July, ICE agents had a “vote of no confidence” in Morton, which passed unanimously, 259-0.)
John Morton, ICE Chief & Complete Schmuck
Yes, this (quasi-)man who is supposed to be helping protect our borders and get rid of malefactors within instead panders to the enemy and denigrates his own agents to the press. Although Morton’s meeting with open borders activists and illegal alien activists at the Muslim-controlled ACCESS–the Arab American Community Center for Economic and Social Services–was closed to the press, he made sure his appearance and meeting there with open borders whiners was publicized in both of Detroit’s major newspapers and he made it known that he apologized for his agents’ “improper actions.”
So what were those, um, “improper actions”? Tailing illegal aliens who were ordered deported by federal judges. Yeah, we can’t have Enforcement and Removal Operations actually enforcing court orders and removing aliens, can we? ICE agents, including those from Enforcement and Removal Operations, were following an illegal alien who had been evading them and who’d been ordered deported. They apparently followed this individual near a school. Suddenly, the outraged Detroit media coverage accused ICE agents of surveilling and raiding schools, seeking illegal aliens as they drop off their children, and harassing children. Although that isn’t what happened, why exactly is that a problem? If a bank robber, a kidnapper, or a child molester was dropping his kid off at school, does that mean police should stay away and let him disappear? Only a moron would demand that. These people doth protest too much because they know that the schools in question are Anchor Baby Central, and most of the parents are here illegally.
The men on these Fugitive Operations teams not only risk their lives every day, but they are the best in the biz, frequently sought by the Federal Marshals to assist in finding and capturing domestic criminals. Instead of refusing to appear at an agency that aids and abets the illegal alien invasion of our country, instead of standing up for his Enforcement and Removal Operations agents who put their lives on the line every day trying to apprehend and deport illegal aliens under very dangerous circumstances, John Mor(t)on threw them under the bus to pander to those who support the mass-scale criminal trespass into our country. It’s truly despicable. Julie L. Myers was bad enough. But this guy is far, far worse. Not only has he publicly attacked his agents, but so has his tax-paid ICE Public Affairs Director, Brian Hale, a man who should definitely be fired along with Morton.
Patrick Murray, Vice President of Enforcement and Removal Operations, for ICE Council 118–ICE agents’ union, sent me the following press release, which is a must-read, as what is detailed therein is outrageous:
Union Defends ICE Agents in Detroit: Leaders Call on ICE Managers to Quit Playing Politics
Union defends ICE Agents in Detroit: On the morning of April 5, 2011 Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Fugitive Operations Officers were conducting routine surveillance of a home in the Detroit area suspected to be the residence of a criminal fugitive ordered deported from the United States by a Federal Judge.
Leaders call on ICE managers to quit playing politics.
On the morning of April 5, 2011 Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Fugitive Operations Officers were conducting routine surveillance of a home in the Detroit area suspected to be the residence of a criminal fugitive ordered deported from the United States by a Federal Judge. When a vehicle left the residence ICE Agents adhered to standard law enforcement surveillance techniques and followed.
As the vehicle entered a school area Agents broke contact but maintained surveillance from a distance. When the vehicle drove away from the area Agents followed unobserved for approximately five blocks before pulling the car over and arresting the fugitive identified on the warrant in their possession. “It was textbook law enforcement,” said Chris Crane, President of the National ICE Council, the Union representing ICE Agents and Officers, “I’m proud of our Officers and the professionalism they displayed in conducting their duties.”
However, this routine arrest has erupted in a media storm of false accusations and misinformation. Immigration Activists claim that the school was surrounded by ICE Agents who profiled and stalked Hispanic residents, made warrantless arrests and otherwise terrorized innocent bystanders and children. Crane denies those allegations. “None of the people making these allegations have the facts; ICE Agents were acting under an order from a Federal Judge. No man, woman or child was terrorized or harassed; nobody surrounded the school or took any other action around it.”
Crane also rejected statements by ICE Public Affairs Director Brian Hale that implied ICE Agents had acted contrary to ICE policy. “ICE hadn’t even spoken to the officers involved when Hale made those statements. His statements were premature and inaccurate. Mr. Hale is not an officer, does not represent ICE Agents, and clearly is not familiar with ICE policy regarding surveillance near schools. His comments have created confusion and fueled this storm”
This is not the first time Hale has failed to accurately represent ICE Officers in the field the Union alleges. In March, the Union filed a formal complaint with ICE Director John Morton calling for Hale’s resignation alleging he told the press that ICE did not consider its own agents to be “real agents.” Hale allegedly made these statements after masked gunman entered the home of an ICE Agent in Texas to kill the Agent, but when he was not at home molested his fianceé. “We were outraged,” Crane said, “our Agent needed help and instead our own Agency attacked us.” ICE Director John Morton did not respond to the Union’s complaint.
“Thanks to ICE, newspapers and blogs across the country now read ‘ICE admits to wrongdoing in Detroit,’ but our officers did nothing wrong. ICE is abusing its authority and attacking its employees instead of protecting them, it’s time for ICE to quit playing politics and defend our officers publicly.”
The National ICE Council represents 7,000 ICE Officers, Agents and employees working for ICE.
Meanwhile, ICE agents at headquarters in Washington keep telling me about the bevy of fancy cars, hotels, and restaurants John Morton is charging up courtesy of you. And, remember, he’s the one spending your time and money, hobnobbing with open anti-Semites from Egypt, like Zahi Hawass. He’s also the same guy who told ICE agents not to arrest illegal aliens during the census or ever. This guy isn’t just incompetent. He’s responsible for further destroying the country. And he’s definitely responsible for the ultimate nadir of morale within his agency. There simply doesn’t seem to be a reason to even have ICE as a continuing agency. If you won’t let your agents do their jobs, if you won’t let them follow court orders and pick up and deport people, then why keep the shop open?
It’s beyond disgusting what he is saying about and doing to his agents. Only a complete scumbag would apologize to criminals and malefactors and attack his own good people.
And that’s exactly what John Mor(t)on is. A schmuck. Period.
