ICE Princess on Ice?: U.S. Senate Says NO to Julie Myers Recess Appointment

By Debbie Schlussel
It’s long been the position of the incompetent, never-confirmed Assistant Secretary of Homeland Security for Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE) Julie L. Myers a/k/a “The ICE Princess” and her Bush Admin cronies that her annoying, undeserved recess appointment by President Bush, last year, lasted until the end of next year or even the end of 2008.
Perhaps the U.S. Senate doesn’t buy her or Bush’s cockamamie, Rube Goldberg claims about her nomination. On December 9th, the Senate rejected her nomination and returned it back to the President. Think he’ll finally get the message and nominate someone serious about enforcing our nation’s immigration laws (and with the law enforcement background to do so)?
Here’s what the official Senate record reflects on the much-appreciated, far-too-late rejection of The ICE Princess:


The following Executive Nominations were returned to the President, pursuant to Senate rules, or were disapproved by the Senate during the current Congress.
Dec 9, 2006 . . .
Julie L. Myers, of Kansas, to be an Assistant Secretary of Homeland Security, to which position she was appointed during the last recess of the Senate.

Returned to the President under the provisions of Senate Rule XXXI, paragraph 6 of the Standing Rules of the Senate.
Does this mean no more taxpayer waste on stupid ICE recruitment videos featuring The ICE Princess, The ICE Princess, Fat Chicks, and The ICE Princess?
Here’s the official Senate floor procedure for what comes next:

Nominations Returned to the President
Nominations that are not confirmed or rejected are returned to the President at the end of a session or when the Senate adjourns or recesses for more than 30 days (Senate Rule XXXI, paragraph 6). If the President still wants a nominee considered, he must submit a new nomination to the Senate. The Senate can, however, waive this rule by unanimous consent. For example, on November 19, 1999, at the close of the first session of the l06* Congress, Majority Leader Trent Lott asked and received unanimous consent “that all nominations received by the Senate during the 10ChCongress, first session, remain in status quo.”

We sure hope Trent Lott doesn’t screw America with any more “Myers Time,” but aren’t holding our breath. We don’t count on President Bush to do the right thing. Only an idiot would have picked her in the first place (and three idiots–Bush, Chertoff a/k/a “Mr. Burns,” and The ICE Princess, herself–did).
Only in America.

Halle-freakin-lujah !!! Free at last, free at last, thank G-d almighty, free at last.
Hey, Julie, time to grab your kid, your do-nothing husband and high tail your happy behind back to your white bred world of Kansas, where I guess “inmigracion” is not a problem.
Oh, I’m sorry, did no one tell you that Mexicans were working at Swift Foods in your neck of the woods? Awww, too bad !!! Perhaps you can tell that f**kface sheriff from Grand Island, NE (who didn’t want to help ICE with the raids because he didn’t want to lose the “trust” of his constituency there) that the next time he wants Federal funding or asset sharing, he and his whole lot of malfeasants can go STRAIGHT TO HELL !!!
Good-bye and good riddance Julie: Your tenure was a pathetic joke and, while you and your hubby put another checkmark on your resumes, we, the field agents, have to suffer with the consequences of your silly, ill-informed and misguided policies and priorities.
Oh, be the bye Julie, had my other agency interview today – looks good for a January/February exit. So, while you ride off into the sunset, hopefully so will I, and ICE and its pathetic moniker and mission can KISS MY A** on the way out.

I will make a big party on the last day (or the next day) of George Weasel Bush’s presidency. That’s a promise.
I hate to think what’s going to happen in 2008, but right now I want Bush out.

I find it rather curious that ICE has turned a blind eye at the poultry industry – right next door in ArKinSaw and Missoura – You know, Bill Clinton’s benefactors at Tyson, Butterball, etc. They not only funded their Manchurian Candidate, hid his dead political opponents, and provided space for drug smugglers, they BUS illegals from Messiko to work at their friggin’ companies! And much of this transport occurs in old YELLOW school busses! I’ve seen ’em myself. The entire “3-state” region has been overrun with illegals who are turning the whole place into Little Messiko.
It is LONG past time to cut off federal funding for local cop shops who refuse to enforce the law – ALL laws! What I have personally witnessed in Arizona and Missouri over the years is NOW happening in rural Michigan. The farm workers USED to go back home after the harvest, but not anymore. It’s sickening. Drive through any small town these days and you’re likely to see shops and restaurants catering specifically to Spanish speakers. Now, I wonder … who might THEY be? They didn’t come here for the friggin’ climate!
