**** CORRECTION, 05/11/09: ICE agents inform me that this building is not an ICE building but a Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS) building and that ICE is stuck at the Mt. Elliot building. Sorry, ICE, for the mistake. ****
Just how much taxpayer money did Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) spend to build a new “green” immigration center in Detroit designed to be “more attractive” to immigrants?
Remember “The ICE Princess”–incompetent former ICE chieftess Julie L. Myers, who promised fiscal restraint at her confirmation hearings? She and her buddy John “Costanza” Torres–the current acting chief of ICE–approved this spending boondoggle which benefits NON-citizens.
A new immigration office opened Wednesday in Detroit.
The building, 11411 E. Jefferson Ave., was designed to be environmentally friendly by using recycled materials and sunlight. The design also reduces storm water runoff, officials said.
It also was hoped to provide a more attractive place for immigrants. The previous facility, on Mt. Elliott in Detroit, was cramped and dark, officials said.
Thanks, ICE, for Our New “Green” “More Attractive” Immigration Center
So, now we’re not only persecuting ICE agents for doing their jobs, setting free the illegal aliens they captured and giving them work permits, but we’re spending money to make our buildings more “attractive” to immigrants?
Your tax dollars (not) @ work.
