EXCLUSIVE: Obama ICE Chief Ignores Agent-Shootings; In NYC Job-Seeking @ NBC, Viacom, to LA for Oscars (on Your Dime)
Question: Why is Barack Obama’s top immigration cop blowing off the internecine shooting of a top agent and the death of another?
Answer: He’s busy using your tax dollars to fly to New York in his job search, meeting with top officials of NBC Universal and Viacom, trying to land a position as an entertainment lawyer. Yup, you are paying for his post-Obama job quest, complete with a posse of bodyguards and top ICE staff, all of whom are aware of the job quest.
John Morton, Barack Obama’s hand-picked Assistant Secretary of Homeland Security for Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is blowing off the biggest tragedy in his agency’s history–the shooting death of one agent, after he shot a top fellow LA agent. The Los Angeles office of his agency is burning and the offices around the country are in simmer mode. But John Morton can’t be bothered. Instead, DebbieSchlussel.com has learned that Morton is headed to New York City, where tomorrow, he will be spending your money and resources meeting with officials of two major media companies with whom he’s seeking a position and a $2 million annual salary. Rome is burning, but he’s more concerned with his own personal irons in a different fire.
On Friday, we told you about the shooting death of Ezequiel “Zeke” Garcia, an ICE Senior Supervisory Agent and Group Supervisor, after he shot his boss, Deputy ICE Special Agent in Charge for Los Angeles, Kevin Kozak. It made news around the world and has caused a deeper rift within a failing agency already ripped apart by bad management, hamstrung agents not allowed to arrest illegal aliens, and an Obama policy urging illegal aliens to report ICE agents. Morton, the Director of ICE, quickly flew in and out of Los Angeles because he has job interviews to go to. Tomorrow, Morton is meeting for lunch with Richard “Rick” Cotton, General Counsel and Executive Vice President of NBC Universal. And, after lunch, Morton will dine with Michael Fricklas, Executive Vice President, General Counsel, and Secretary with Viacom, again seeking a job. Sources say that Morton has already flown to New York City, on your dime, to meet with Rick Cotton on four previous occasions, but still hasn’t gotten the job. That’s why the inept ICE “leader” hasn’t yet resigned as he was expected to do at year’s end.
To make it look “legit,” Morton is also flying a complete entourage of other ICE officials, including Suzie “Stripper Pole” Barr, Beth Gibson, Gary Meade, and Andrew Strait, to New York with him, along with his two ICE agent bodyguards and a chauffeur. And he’s inserted into the schedule a town hall and a meeting with some deportation officials. But the real purpose is the job interviews. FYI, Mr. Strait is the “advocate,” a position created for him by Morton to “advocate” for illegal aliens arrested by ICE agents, who’ve called an 800 number created for illegal aliens to attack the agente who do their jobs.
But, don’t worry, he’s expected back in LA next week–to attend the Academy Awards, not to investigate why a career agent snapped and shot his boss. ICE sources tell DebbieSchlussel.com that Morton has made 20 trips to Los Angeles since he’s headed the agency, most of them to try to curry favor with Hollywood bigwigs in his quest for a position as a high-paid legal beagle or exec with an entertainment company. The sources also confirm that Morton accepted free tickets to the Emmy Awards, the Grammy Awards, as well as other major entertainment shows. Accepting such coveted, expensive tickets for free, as Morton has for the Super Bowl among other such events, is improper and not allowed under strict ICE policies prohibiting personnel from accepting so much as a free meal. But Morton is above the rules, apparently. At least, in his own mind. And, in exchange, he steps up the tradition of turning ICE agents into the publicly-funded copyright police of NFL and Hollywood billionaires.
Morton has assigned himself two career ICE agents to be his full-time bodyguards. That’s in addition to an agent who acts as his permanent chauffeur. This entourage, which accompanies him everywhere including to his job interviews tomorrow, costs America $50,000 per month. Morton ordered them to wear phony earpieces to impress those in attendance at a law school reunion. The chauffeur and the bodyguards have also been seen ferrying Morton’s girlfriend, not a government employee, around for easy booty call access. Even Morton’s high-flying predecessor, Julie L. Myers a/k/a “The ICE Queen,” did not feel the need to have bodyguards. And what’s the threat on his life? Morton has forbidden ICE agents from arresting illegal aliens and provided a toll-free number and “advocate” to help the few who are arrested. Illegal aliens love him. However, I’ve heard that he faces imminent attack from a Debbie Schlusseldead sarcophagus he might deport to Egypt. That, FYI, is virtually the only deportation he’s doing these days.
Yes, a career ICE agent is dead after shooting and nearly killing a top Los Angeles ICE official. And John Morton can’t be bothered to be in Los Angeles for that.
He has an entertainment job interview to go to. And the Oscars. Give the man an Academy Award for playing the head of Homeland Security’s largest law enforcement agency.
After all, he’s just acting.
