As you may have heard, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents are under attack from Department of Homeland Security Chief Janet Napolitano a/k/a “The Lesbionic Woman” for actually doing their job, enforcing immigration law, and raiding employers who don’t abide by it. She’s now investigating the ICE agents.
Napolitano may look like a man and think she is one. But, today, ICE Special Agent in Charge Leigh H. Winchell sent this e-mail, below, to all Seattle area ICE agents and personnel, showing her where the real cojones lie (look for him to get transferred to the ICE SAC Office in Pakistan). That’s hot. This guy, Winchell’s got guts–the right kind of chutzpah–and cares about the morale of his men. I like that. That’s sexy.
Special Agent Winchell, you’re my new hero (write to me when you get transferred to Antarctica; Also note that the press release he sends was written by one of Julie Myers’/”The ICE Princess”‘ old crony employees, incompetent former ICE press chick Jamie Zuieback, now working for the Repubs on the House Judiciary Committee apparently):
HOT! . . .
NOT . . .

Subject: FW: Napolitano’s Investigation of Investigators is Beyond Backwards
To all SAC [DS: Special Agent in Charge Office] Seattle employees,
By now you have all experienced or heard of the issues that have been made out of some very fine work by our Blaine and Seattle offices when conducting the worksite case in Bellingham two days ago. I want to tell you all how very proud I am of the manner in which you operated during this enforcement action. You did nothing wrong and you did everything right. From ASAC to agent, all the bases were covered, and covered very well. I cannot control the politics that take place with these types of situations, but I can remind you that you are great servants of this country and this agency. I am proud to be your SAC and I know that this distraction will not keep you from fulfilling your wide ranging duties as ICE agents. I also know that you have the support and gratitude of our leadership in ICE HQ.
I thought you would like to see this press release from the House Judiciary Committee.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: February 26, 2009

Smith: Napolitano’s Investigation of Investigators is Beyond Backwards
Washington, D.C. – House Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Lamar Smith (R-Texas) today questioned Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano’s decision to investigate a law enforcement action by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. According to ICE, the Bellingham operation resulted in the arrest of 28 illegal immigrants and is part of an ongoing worksite enforcement investigation.
Ranking Member Smith issued the following statement regarding Secretary Napolitano’s decision to investigate the investigators:
“Let me see if I have this straight: ICE agents arrest a criminal illegal immigrant gang member, discover he had worked illegally with other illegal immigrants at a manufacturing plant, begin an investigation of the employer and arrest the illegal immigrants to get more facts . . . and the Secretary orders an investigation of ICE?
“I am surprised that Secretary Napolitano, a former federal prosecutor, either fails to understand or chooses to ignore the fact that in workplace immigration enforcement cases, the best evidence for a criminal prosecution of the employer often comes from the illegal immigrant workers themselves.
“This sounds like good police work, not something to investigate. Secretary Napolitano’s decision is beyond backwards. It is an insult to the dedicated ICE agents whose daily work makes our country safer and enables American citizens and legal immigrants to get available jobs in our economy.
“The Secretary is on the wrong side of this issue. She should be standing up for U.S. citizens and legal immigrant workers, not the illegal immigrants who take their jobs.”
Right on. If only Zuieback could have written and expressed herself this way when her incompetent bud, Julie L. Myers, was running things in a fashion similar to The Lesbionic Woman.
Three cheers for Leigh Winchell. It’s great to see someone in a position of authority not play politics and praise his law enforcement personnel for doing their jobs and doing them well.
As one of his agents writes me:
. It is nice to see management stand up for the American people to enforce immigration laws despite politics.
And by the way, Leigh, write me from your new job as ICE attache in Gaza City.
This guy should be running ICE instead of yet another lawyer.
By the way, Leigh, can we trade Abu Moskowitz for you? We could use you here in Detroit.
