Immigration OUTRAGE: ICE’s Peppermint Patty Gets $45,000 Bonus(!)

By Debbie Schlussel
So, ICE arrested a few hundred illegal aliens at meat packing plants, yesterday. That’s great. But it still leaves the number of illegal aliens arrested at U.S. employers at only a few thousand in an entire year. That’s a speck of dust in comparison to 20 million illegals here and still working with impunity–taking jobs away from Americans. And that’s because the people atop ICE aren’t serious about immigration enforcement.
Given that millions of illegal aliens are roaming free throughout our country, we wonder why Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Director of Investigations Marcy Forman-Friedman a/k/a “Peppermint Patty” just received a $45,000 bonus from our tax money, doled out by her boss, ICE chieftess Julie L. Myers a/k/a “The ICE Princess.” (It gives new meaning to the song, “Sisters are Doing it for Themselves.”) Forman is, after all, the woman who wrote this memo telling ICE agents that they should release illegal aliens with no criminal record into the Great American Abyss–never to be seen again (until they murder someone or commit another serious crime).


Julie Myers & Marcy Forman-Friedman:

The ICE Princess Showered Peppermint Patty w/$45K of Our Tax $$$

$45,000 is more than many Americans make in an entire year. It’s more than many Americans working on Wall Street in the private sector get for Christmas bonuses, and many of them actually made money for their clients. In this case, we’ve got a woman who’s lost a lot of illegal aliens for us due to shoddy choices in investigative pursuits in immigration enforcement. And she’s getting a bonues for that?! The fish rots from the head down. And in this case, the rotten fishhead just got rewarded with $45,000 for the rapid rot.
Given this, we wonder who else received tens of thousands of dollars in our tax money from the incompetent, wasteful ICE Princess. How much did The ICE Princess dole out to ICE’s wasteful, evil version of George Costanza, John P. Torres (in addition to the thousands he wasted on a Tommy Lasorda speech and a week-long party in Kansas City)? We also wonder why Myers has $45 K to dole out to Peppermint Patty but not enough money for ICE agents to have oil changes on their government cars, adequate bed space for illegal aliens, and more agents to enforce immigration laws.
We’re not the only ones wondering. So are many outrage, hard-working ICE agents–who are far more deserving of bonuses than these inept so-called “managers” and directors at ICE. Here’s what one of several wrote us:

I work at ICE and would like to report that Marcy Forman, our great investigations director, received a $45,000 bonus for her “outstanding service to ICE”. It is ironic that she is getting a bonus when ICE is at an all time low in morale, our budget is in shambles and agent retention is at an all time low. Not to mention many SACS [DS: Special Agents in Charge] out in the field did not get SES [DS: Senior Executive Status] bonuses and they deserved them. [DS: Hardly. Not Abu Moskowitz and several other incompetent SACs, so I beg to differ here.] Makes me wonder what the bench mark is for getting a bonus. Also, as we are in a budget crunch and can not afford vehicles, travel and many other things, our investigations director gets a bonus?

Good grief. The whole thing is, frankly, disgusting. Bonuses are supposed to go to those who did their job well.

Salary bonuses, and pay increases for all appointed Civil Service Positions should be subject to a Citizen Review Board. IT’S OUR MONEY!

Is this a shock to ANYONE? Oh my gosh- a group of unqualified government appointees participating in a self congratulatory “pat ourselves and our cronies in arms on the back party”. All at our taxpaying expense.
I bet the ICE Princess also expects a baby shower for her spawn. Of course to be hosted by all of the agents whom she precludes from performing their job in any effective manner.
Excuse me while I go vomit….

With a big bonus and accompanying outstanding performance evaluation, she is set up for a big promotion. Could this be the ICE Princess replacement?

Why does anyone on the government payroll, state, local or federal, get a bonus for anything? This is not the private sector.

The gov’t is as much a business as any other. My husband works for DHS. He is one of the most proactive, knowlegeable as well as senior CBP officers in his district. He is regarded by higher ups as their “immigration expert”. But since he isn’t one of the “inner circle” he is denied the cash bonuses that senior management grant themselves and their little drones every year. They claim they are entitled because of their “cost saving” measures.

Thanks for the update, MarySJ. Didn’t know (government) mgmt. had any ability to augment their salaries out of their budgets. Thought their salary was “fixed” by statute or administrative regulations.

The Bonus was actually a presidential award, and one SAC (Tampa) also received the award. The award is a certain percentage of your salary. Not sure exactly who is eligible to receive the award and/or what the criteria is for selection.

Debbie, as you know this is a PR stunt. Think about their “record” which they will talk about later when people criticize them:
“Oh, but we worked hard to hunt down those naughty illegal immigrants. Look, we arrested many of them lately. We are doing our job, we can’t hunt them all, it will take time, we are working on it. But now we need a raise, a reward, an award, a bonus……”
The government is full of crap.
Most of those who are so eager to work for the government are doing it just for the benefits, not to honestly serve the American people and America.

Yesterday I was rear ended in an accident that was started by a mexican chick in a white SUV. she didnt want to communicate with us and when we pulled over to get out of traffic she took off. She likely had no insurance and was an illegal alien. I got her license plate number though.
These illegals in Texas are swarming us and I’m freaking sick and tired of it. I find it ammusing that the liberals love to point out the lower costs we get becasue of them and then I laugh at that sorry excuse as I’m forced to pay higher insurance costs and deductables becasue of illegal $hit heads like this. We americans dont save money with the cheaper labor, its just transfered into other indirect and/or invisible costs. Send them home! I’m tired of this crap.

Every time I am given the libe-tard argument about lower cost BS. I always ask if that person would then be willing to give out his or her Social Security # to an illegal so they can work. I love the blank stares I get after that question.

Has it occurred to anyone the the Government has become a criminal enterprise which sole mission is to line the pockets of the employees that work for them. There are no standards for performance in Government work except CYA.
They let Tyson, Cargel, and Swift fire American citizens that use to get $20.00 an hour and hire Illegals that get around 9.00 an hour. This has been allowed to go on for the last 15 years and then Ice arrests a couple hundred for PR and claims they are doing something about it.
I predict they all will be on the street within a week and Swift will not be fined.
If I was in charge, I would raid Tyson, Cargel, and Swift every week, load the buses and head to Mexico for immediate deportation.
It is just common sense that these meat packers hire the coyotes and import slave labor from third world countries and it takes ICE a year to investigate what is so obvious to anyone with half a brain.
So, Peppermint Patty makes one high profile raid in 6 years and expects a bonus. She is not qualified to clean the bathrooms at ICE let alone run the agency.
She should have been demoted for being incompetent and a leech on the taxpayers dime.
