Well, No Wonder Congress Won’t Touch The ICE Princess

By Debbie Schlussel
Well, no wonder Congress won’t do a thing to investigate the absolute incompetence of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Valley-Girl-in-Chief Julie L. Myers a/k/a “The ICE Princess” and the complete disarray of her agency under her hegemony.
They know even less about what she does than even she does.
Take Congressman Vito Fossella, a Republican Congressman from Staten Island, New York. He is upset that the naturalization ceremony for new citizens has less frills and pomp, due to budget cuts (these cuts are actually a good thing, Congressman Fossella).
Because he’s so upset, he wrote a letter protesting this to The ICE Princess:

Congressman Vito Fossella: Nice House, Nobody Home

(Julie Myers Baglady by David Lunde/Lundesigns)

Although efficiency is to be applauded, in this case it comes at an unacceptable psychic cost, Rep. Vito Fossella (R-Staten Island/Brooklyn) wrote yesterday in a letter to Julie L. Myers, Assistant Secretary of Homeland Security for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
“The naturalization ceremony is a defining moment in a new citizen’s life,” Fossella said. “A day this important in the life of an immigrant should not be reduced to what one federal judge likened to a ‘paper-pushing’ ceremony.”

Problem is–while she “oversees” (and in her case that’s a very generous term) many things at ICE that are troubled under her reign–she has nothing to do with the naturalization process, nor does ICE in any way.
Memo to Congressman Fossella: Citizenship and Immigration Services– headed by The ICE Princess’ fellow incompetent and undeserving Homeland Security crony, Emilio T. Gonzalez–is the agency in charge of the naturalization ceremonies, usually featuring naturalized undesirables whose backgrounds he and his agency didn’t thoroughly check and merely rubberstamped through.
Gonzalez is the one who gave himself an award for Outstanding American “By Choice,” as opposed to Myers who gave herself her job at ICE and a phony award for fiscal accountability while she wastes millions on stuffed monkeys, chip-clips, and personal lawyers for herself.
Please get your croniest hacks straight, Congressman.
The lesson here is this: Congress will never do the right thing and straighten out ICE or adequately question the incompetent Veruca Salt of ICE, Julie Myers. They don’t even know what she or her agency does.
Yup, the same Congress that wants to give amnesty to illegal aliens. G-d help us.

I went to my best friend’s Naturalization Ceremony and it made me cry. I was so proud to be an American and so proud to witness all my new “fellow Americans” pledge their allegiance. I don’t know what they’re doing on Staten Island, but the one I attended was lovely.

Thats nice to hear. The Illegal immigrants should to pledge allegiance too. I mean I don’t understand how we as “Americans” are letting people live in our country who don’t even pledge allegiance to America. This means that illegal aliens(and Im not singling out Mexicans because illegals come from all over) have no loyalty to America and they can basically can do whatever(murder,rape,rob,steal,loot,molest, smuggle drugs,smuggle slaves) and guess what? Because they aren’t legal citizens they can run back to their country and not face justice.
America is the playground for “illegal aliens”.

Citizenship and Immigration Services (CIS) is slumbering in the same cesspool that Julie Myers has decided to set up ICE camp in. I have no doubt the reason they curtailed the naturalization ceremonies is because the money is going towards self-initiated monetary awards, dog-and-pony show training seminars, and, the biggest laugh of all: CIS has been implementing new programs to “streamline” the immigration/naturalization process to make it more timely and efficient. If you can believe that then I’ll be selling Father’s Day Cards in homes for unwed mothers.
Everyone in with any integrity in the ICE-house knows Julie Myers should be held to the highest extreme of accountability for the fiscal waste and mismanagement she has perpetrated since her reign of terror began but, business being usual in the Beltway, that’ll never happen.
As far as Emilio “Seedy” Gonzalez is concerned, he should be prosecuted for Alien Smuggling under Title 8 U.S.C. 1324 because that is, in essence, what his agency has done. Debbie is right in her assertion of CIS’s rubber-stamping of natz. for resident aliens who shouldn’t have had residency in the first place. Many of these twits who were granted citizenship en masse were discovered to have extensive felony records, convicted of egregious offenses, and some even made it to the Who’s Who on the terrorist watch list. Unfortunately, now that they were granted U.S. Citizenship, the task of ridding them from this country was made even more insurmountable.
For all you Libs in Mind-Mush Land, the infamous Clinton Administration got the ball rolling on this nefarious practice so has to allow Billy Boy to stain the carpet in the Oval Office for another 4 years while Janet Reno looked on with approval while stroking her pet, then Commisioner of legacy INS, “Doris Gump” Meissener.
Happy Trails

Debbie-
I think this Goomba from SI deserves the nickname “Johnnycakes”. When any civil ceremony is done there should be a certain amount of reverence, but I don’t know why immigrants should get all the bells and whistles. While I applaud people actually making the commitment to “legally” immigrate I think that the celebration shouldn’t be any more dramatic than legal adoptions, civil marriages by municpal officials and for that matter, divorces. A status change can be celebrated by the person at their own discretion. Not at the expense of the taxpayer.

Vito had his heart in the right place, he just needs to do a little research. Becoming an American used to be a big deal. It was very important for my family from Germany at the turn of the last century. So much so, the only traditions we still celebrate from the old country are beer, bratwurst, liverwurst and sauerkraut. We have always been Americans first and last, German in name only.
My betrothed’s family came from Italy to America in the 1910’s. It was a huge deal for them, the family still has the original certificate from Ellis Island. I suppose this is the same proud tradition Vito thinks should still be in place, which I think he’s correct. Although, he’s a little confused on which agency should be in charge.

Debbie,
Trying her best to be just like her BFF is ICE’s OPR Director Traci Lembke. She just upgraded her OPR agents to GS14s even though they do not do practically ANY criminal investigations! DHS Inspector General’s Office does all the criminal cases thanks to the MOU it very smartly asked for and got from Secy Ridge when DHS was created! At least one of these jackpot and lottery winning agents saw their pay increase by at least $12,000.00 with the upgrade! Of course, Traci has announced to her well paid troops that she wants them to do only criminal cases and refer out all administrative cases to Office of Investigation management AND that OPR will be taking back all the misconduct cases from the Citizenship and Immigration Services branch. But in the meantime…!
And like a pebble being thrown into a pond, the GS14 upgrades will affect management, the RAC, ASAC, DSAC, SAC, since they will have to be upgraded as well. An OPR RAC is the same as an Office of Investigations Group Supervisor, who is a GS14. But now the OPR RAC will be a GS15, the same level as a OI ASAC. Hmmmmm should not this be investigated for fraud, waste and mismanagement?
Upshot of all this is that the DHS Inspector General agents who are doing the harder cases, the criminal cases, are still GS13 paid agents.
