You Heard it Here First: Harold Hurtt, Obama’s New Pro-Illegal Alien Immigration Guy

By Debbie Schlussel

Don’t say I didn’t warn you about Harold Hurtt.  Back in March, I broke the exclusive story that Hurtt, the fired Houston police chief, was Barack Obama’s and Janet Napolitano’s top choice to run Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Section 287 (g) program which works with state and local police and allows them to enforce immigration laws.  And it was announced yesterday–as I predicted–that he got the job.  No surprise to those who read me in March.  Just a surprise to the folks at FOX News.

EXCLUSIVE: Who is Harold Hurtt? Meet the Immigration Enforcement Foe . . . Who Wants to be ICE’s Public Face

By Debbie Schlussel


World of Hurtt: Illegal Aliens’ Best Friend Gets Key ICE Job

The program is also known as the Office of State and Local Coordination (OSLC).  Now, the rest of the media–especially the blind and toothless mainstream conservative media–is catching up.  But I told you Hurtt would get this job, months ago.

As I told you then, Hurtt not only spoke out against that program–testifying before Congress against police aiding in immigration enforcement, but was the key player in Houston’s sanctuary city status, prohibiting his police from enforcing immigration laws.  That and his other carelessness made him a defendant in a lawsuit filed by the widow of one of his murdered cops, after two of them were shot and killed by illegal aliens.  Hurtt built his career on open borders baloney and opposing enforcement of immigration laws, including and especially the very program he will now head up.  It’s an incredible joke–like putting his boss, Napolitano, on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition.

And don’t forget Hurtt denouncing America and the Texas prison system on Al-Jazeera, the Terrorist News Network.  The man is a disaster.  Two very experienced career ICE agents with solid immigration enforcement experience were competing with Hurtt for the job, including the highly competent and qualified Matthew Albence, who would have been perfect for the job.  But, clearly, those two White guys were never really in the running and were interviewed as a formality because the affirmative action pick, Harold Hurtt, was already the chosen one, no matter how incompetent.  Call it ICE’s “anti-Rooney rule.” Someone asked me, today, if I think Barack Obama is a racist. With moves like this, I gotta say, “YES!”

Hurtt needed a job, and no other police force, including the San Francisco PD–where he applied–would hire him.  They know how incompetent and damaging this guy is.  So, in the ultimate of Obama stimulus packages for the incompetent, ICE hired him.

La Raza now has their man running America’s immigration (non-)enforcement.

Affirmative Action in Action for ya folks!

He should have retired by now.

Oscar on June 25, 2010 at 2:51 pm

The blind stumble around to a story Debbie broke months ago. Will they give her credit for it?


NormanF on June 25, 2010 at 3:16 pm

The guy either needs a new gut or a new suit. Incidentally, what does this story have to do with affirmative action? It is about ideology, not race. There are plenty of white male liberals that would have exactly the same agenda were Obama (or Clinton, Biden or any other Democrat) to put them in that post. And why does this post exist anyway? It seems that whether the president is Bush (either one), Obama or Clinton, all these posts just means more people to get powerful jobs to be corrupt in. Maybe if there were fewer government jobs like this, there would be less corruption.

Gerald on June 25, 2010 at 3:36 pm

Yes, Gerald. It is about ideology: teh ideolgy of going to extreme lengths to avoid hiring whites. Obama is our first affirmative action president, and except for critical high-level posts that were decided for him in advance, *all* of his political appointments are purely based on the ideology of punishing white males for supposed transgressions of our forefathers. From transexuals to Latinos to gays and lesbians, this is clearly reflected in Obama’s actions.

DS_ROCKS! on June 25, 2010 at 3:50 pm

DS…I appreciate the way you call a “spade-a-spade.” My personal opinion is Barack Obama IS a racist and here are MY reasons:

You don’t sit and listen Jerry Wright’s weekly rant of Black liberation (racist)theology for twenty years and claim you didn’t “hear” it.

After reading Michelle’s senior year treatise at Princeton, exposing her “true” feelings about race and incertitude.

When speaking in San Francisco- while playing the populist card- the references he made to gun-toting, bible thumping, people who don’t look like “them,” was definitely a blatant of racism and the media should have called him out on it. Pussy’s!

Another reason is the hint of acrimony when he claimed the Cambridge, MA police acted “stupidly” in his opinion, prior to seeking the facts. Obama was purporting every stereotype inculcated into his head by race hustlers, about “white” cops profiling blacks.

Yet, the Christmas day shoe bomber attempts to blow up a plane and Obama said he did that “allegedly” though. Go figure! What’s wrong with this picture?

In 18 months B.O. has Made more African appointments than the NAACP has in its’ history. Kinda goin overboard to Payback the black folk. I wonder if skin color was his only criteria in all of these appointments? One last musing, Why hasn’t any of the MSM did a story on this?

Very Concerned citizen on June 25, 2010 at 7:48 pm

Maybe he will make ICE agents do their job instead of dumping it off on the the street cops.

ICEhole on June 25, 2010 at 8:08 pm

I will tell you all this: There will be no second term for Barry Sotero.

#1 Vato on June 25, 2010 at 9:27 pm

Total sell out. Until someone close to him is affected by the criminal illegal mexicans, he and his ilk won’t care.

samurai on June 25, 2010 at 9:58 pm

No these people, obama and this ice guy are really sick in the head. I heard a story of this white guy who was a beurocrat in favor of open borders, he got hit walking by a drunk illegal alien and I think was in critical condition. When he got better he said he supports illegals just the same. The hard core lefts ideas have been proven time and time again to be failures but they still come up with the same crap. Nothing can sway obamas view of illegal aliens, hell he is one.

tyler on June 25, 2010 at 11:14 pm

    I may be an asshole, but hearing of a really stupid libtard being hit by a car and continuing to support illegals makes me laugh a little bit. Hope he’s seriously seriously injured.

    samurai on June 26, 2010 at 3:20 pm

It’s the ideology and affirmitive action is part of it. Can’t expect anything else from people who’s answer to shooting yourself in the foot is to use a bigger gun.
Incompetancy rules the halls of liberal PC land.

theShadow on June 26, 2010 at 1:19 am

Immigration enforcement at ICE under this administration is a farce. Hiring Harry just adds to the comedy. Only thing is – not too many are laughing. ICE continues to decline.

belugajedi on June 26, 2010 at 2:25 am

Debbie – you hit that nail right on the head. BHO has to be the most racist president in our history. But I do have to say that white males are the ones that he is most biased against.

BHO doesn’t think that affirmative action type laws are strong enough. Affirmative action is very biased against the white male already, but BHO wants to go further. Damn those crackers.

BHO alienates our allies in Europe and the Israeli people but he sucks up to the muzzies. The Europeans are a group of more white people that he doesn’t like. Maybe BHO will like them more when the muzzie infestation of Europe is complete.

There is also the reperation arguement by BHO and his racist buddies. They all believe that whitey needs to poney up the cash for this one also. F U is what I say to these people who bring this sh#t up. My forefathers came here in the early 1800’s and none of them ever owned slaves. I don’t owe anyone jack in reperations.

Finally, he hates how the U.S. was founded and who wrote our founding documents and laws. You can see this by how he interprets the Constitution as being a living, breathing document, contrary to how it was written. And who wrote these documents – more white men who didn’t use affirmative action PC nonsense to create these documents.

Jarhead on June 26, 2010 at 12:07 pm

    not alone saying our forefathers came after slavery times. But, What about all the Africans that also came here after slavery times. Do you pay them too? I have 2 different indian bloods in me, wheres my reparations?

    Very Concerned citizen on June 28, 2010 at 12:14 pm

This post made several points about the aptly named Harold Hurtt.

Yes, ideology is important, and Mr. Hurtt is indeed not unique in this regard. But Debbie made several other points including:

–he was a fired police chief and was rejected for other law enforcement jobs

–Hurtt has gone out of his way not only to speak against, but to try to weaken immigration enforcement programs, to the point he was sued.

Would a white person with Hurtt’s ideology get the job? Yes, quite likely. Would a white person with his additional record of demonstrated incompetence, law suits against him, and the consistently vocal opposition that Hurtt has expressed to the programs he is supposed to enforce get the job? A lot less likely.

Little Al on June 26, 2010 at 1:22 pm

    I disagree. A white guy in his position wouldn’t even be in a position to be in his position. Follow this. A conservative white guy doesn’t get the considerations for the gov job this bastard soaked up. Period. It’s a modern miracle when a guy like Joe Arpaio gets his job. When a chief Gates gets his job. When a Schwartzcoff gets his job. Just the way it is. I’ve only worked for one and he’s hated by most in hq.

    samurai on June 26, 2010 at 3:24 pm

What an ABSOLUTE disgrace!!!!!!…this guy is the lowest of forms!!!…Barry im sure is quite proud…

BIG IRISH on June 26, 2010 at 5:25 pm

Here’s what you all fail to understand, so let me explain it for you …

Morton does NOT run ICE. Suzie Barr does. Barr was Napolitano’s right hand woman in Arizona, and was placed in ICE in title as Chief of Staff. However, in actuality, she is Napolitano’s stoolie and acts at Napolitano’s behest to carry out Napolitano’s and, by extension, the administration’s wishes.

Furthermore, Morton does not make a f**king move without the assent of two of his old cronies from DOJ: Erik Barnett and Beth Gibson. If they say “Yes”, it’s yes; if they say “No”, it’s no – no ands, ifs or buts about it. My sources tell me: Just go to the Mandarin Oriental lounge down the street from ICE headquarters; you will see Barr, Barnett and Gibson holding court 2-3 times a week in a cozy corner, planning (or plotting might be the better term) the direction and future of the agency – Morton is nowhere to be seen.

Therefore, who really runs ICE are political cronies and lawyers – a bad combination for a law enforcement agency. Morton is simply a puppet figurehead who does what he is told. Don’t think that he speaks or acts without the direct knowledge and approval of Barr (and, by extension, Napolitano), Barnett and Gibson – Barr is there for the politics, and Barnett and Gibson keep Morton’s legal ass safe.

Therefore, you can call ICE ICE or HSI or CID or whatever the f**k you want to call it; in the end, it, when it became part of DHS and assumed the immigration noose, became the gallows from which all the agents and deportation officers hang from, twisting in the wind.

Have a good evening.

Still Shaking My Head on June 26, 2010 at 5:31 pm

Still Shaking – you hit the nail on the head. Dead on! These three idiots have done more to destroy ICE in a matter of months than was accomplished from the time of ICE’s inception in 2003 until the time they arrived on board. They have completely gutted enforcement and their continued activities will only further ensure the implosion of an agency with alot of good hardworking law enforcement officers who only want to do their jobs but who havent been allowed to do their jobs for years. ICE has a horrendous reputation among other law enforcement agencies. It is a laughingstock. It is known throughout headquarters that the class act Suzie Barr calls what was formerly known as Detention and Removals the ‘Retard Club’. That is ICE’s stellar leadership. And they no doubt wonder why they can’t improve morale at the agency. When something is rotten from the head down – you need to cut the head off.

belugajedi on June 27, 2010 at 1:46 am

InCompetent Extremists, Affirmative Inaction, and Forgetful Bumbling Idiots make for an extremely toxic stew. Drink up cuz that’s all we get with this regime.

RG on June 29, 2010 at 6:39 am

as a white guy. i do hav to laugh at you FOOLS for even pretending you know jack sh*t about what goes on inside the head of a man you’ve never met. obama may not be amazing, but untuck your nuts from the tight squeeze you’ve been keeping them and groow up.. grow a pair, and stop whining, you sound like little girls- oh wait, thats the whole website.. haaaaa thank god you have the safety of the internet to spout your nonsense. you probably need to clean the fast food outta the 89′ ford and start worrying about you’re own life. since you won’t,cuz you’re life looks soooo much worse than a little far right wing rant, then i direct you to the official 9/11 GOVERNMENT CONSPIRACY- ask yourselves if you really believe the government line about how the towers came down. then ask yourself how your so out of touch.. bam, something we all can agree on- the government is lying to you. ahem, the bush government you hypocrites- *bible says hypocrites burn in hell. SO HAVE FUN BEFORE HELL TAKES YA.
