The ICE Princess’ Last Stand; New Head of Immigration Enforcement Under Investigation; Ray Kelly Lobbying for DHS Top Job

By Debbie Schlussel
**** SCROLL DOWN FOR UPDATE on Ray Kelly ****
Today, a myriad of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents contacted me from all over to let me know that their unqualified, incompetent Bush crony-ette boss, Julie L. Myers a/k/a “The ICE Princess”, stopped by ICE headquarters to say good-bye to the little people.
After months away from the office–an unearned paid vacation courtesy of your tax dollars–she decided to make an official stop in. And, surprise, it wasn’t to judge a costume contest and give out awards for “originality” to employees dressed in blackface . . . or to illegally destroy evidence when she got caught.
Also, today, while she was saying good-bye, I was observing one of the many sad legacies she’s left in her destructive path of incompetence, ineptitude, and selfishness.

From the Beginning, ICE Agents Compared Julie Myers to a Bad Sitcom

Here are some of the many fun and appropriate ICE images I’ve asked David Lunde to make over the last three years . . .
Julie Myers Was Unqualified, Clueless, and an Embarrassment to ICE Agents . . .

<strong>But She Got the Job Because Her Uncle Was Retired Gen. Richard Myers and Her Bed Partner Was Chertoff Chief of Staff John Wood . . .</strong><br />

Prima Donna Julie Myers Liked to Be Chauffeured Around by ICE Agents, Who Were Forced to Buy Her Diet Coke (Out of Their Money) . . .


And She Liked to Give Awards to Her Employees Dressed in Blackface . . .

As I walked down the aisles of a Detroit-area kosher supermarket and saw signs all over saying there is no pastrami or buffalo meat, I thought: this is really the main legacy of “The ICE Princess”–the head of our nation’s immigration enforcement for the last three years, and the woman who exacerbated the problem.
The reason there is a shortage in kosher beef across the country is that instead of tracking down illegal alien visa violators–which include many Muslim “tourists” and “students” who came here for neither purpose and are still here–Myers wasted over $10,000,000 and thousands of ICE agent man-hours to round up just 300 mostly Guatemalan illegal aliens at the nation’s primary kosher meat processing plant in Postville, Iowa.
I’m all for arresting illegal alien workers, but we must set priorities. And the priorities she set dictated that several hundred Somalian Muslim extremist workers with work visas got the illegal alien Guatemalans’ jobs. Don’t you feel so much safer now that “Black Hawk Down” was imported to Iowa? Wow, that was really worth the $10,000,000 national photo op Julie Myers bought with your taxes.
Also, the plant and its parent company just filed for bankruptcy. It is taking the whole Postville town out of commission economically–in a time we can least afford it. The whole town will collapse.
But, hey, the hundreds of thousands of Muslim tourist and student visa violators continue to roam free. I guess they are “less dangerous” than Guatemalan Catholic meat packers.
And, of course, as I noted right after the raid, I asked an ICE agent who conducted the raid whether they’d ever raid Muslim halal meat-processing plants (many of which have been linked to terrorist money laundering), and he say, “F-ck no! The White House has to sign off on this.”
Instead, Julie Myers spent her days feting “former” Islamic terrorists who commit marriage and immigration fraud and work to impede her agents from enforcing the law–an amazingly obtuse move about which I wrote in the New York Post. Yes, American has its priorities.
And the priorities under Julie L. Myers, Michael Chertoff, and George W. Bush were not immigration enforcement. Estimates say that under Myers and her two top protectors–Bush and Chertoff–hundreds of thousands to a million new illegal aliens either entered the country illegally or stayed here past the time they were legally allowed to be here.
That’s the rest of her Politically Correct and incredible bankrupt legacy. Under Myers, ICE became LICE–Latino Immigration and Customs Enforcement, because that’s the only ethnicity that seems to be the target of immigration enforcement in these post-9/11 years.
Finally, there’s her hand-picked temporary successor, whom she promoted to Deputy Assistant Secretary of ICE, even though she knew he was and remains under investigation for promoting unqualified women to important ICE positions because they slept with him.
My sources say that John P. Torres, the proud high school graduate running ICE now that Myers is gone, is under serious investigation for that misconduct and for misusing and misspending ICE money on flights to fly his extramarital girlfriend around. Because of him, she is now Assistant Special Agent in Charge in Baltimore. And don’t forget the hundreds of thousands of dollars he wasted on a weeklong ICE confab promoting . . . himself and paying $30,000-$50,000 to Tommy Lasorda to speak to ICE agents.
Nice work if you can get it.
And, apparently, at ICE, you can only get the plum jobs and get promoted if you are dishonest and incompetent.
Meanwhile, illegal aliens laugh at us, just as they laughed at Myers’ brilliant plan to ask illegal aliens to self-deport. Only 9 out of hundreds of thousands took a bite.
Buh-bye, ICE Princess. And good riddance. So glad you are no longer on ICE and that your federal career is on ice.

New Temp Atop ICE, John Torres

Here are a couple representative examples of the many e-mails I’ve received from ICE agents, very glad to see Myers go, but very much captive of low morale amidst the “leadership” of John P. Torres, ICE’s own unique version of a power-mad George Costanza:

Subject: JULIE MEYERS is saying GOOD-BYE Today!
Dear Debbie,
Julie Meyers will be dropping by the new ICE HQ on 500 12th Street SW, Washington, DC to say Good-Bye today!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The exclamation marks are the message–excitement that Ms. Thang is finally gone.

Subject: Meyers finally Gone!!
Tomorrow (read today) is Julie Meyers last day……. Now we have the wonderful (sic) Torres running ICE………. Jeez, all we need to complete this bad nightmare is for Ray Kelly to come back to be DHS……… We are in serious kak kak………..

Note that both of these ICE agents spelled The ICE Princess’ surname wrong, because they simply don’t care about or respect her in the least to get it right. In fact, many ICE agents referred to her as The ICE Princess, after she was so dubbed by this site.
Yes, Ray Kelly, who heads the NYPD and was once head of U.S. Customs, is pushing to become Obama’s new chief of Homeland Security. I’ve written about him before. ICE agents who worked for the former U.S. Customs noted his priority as head of Customs was not law enforcement, but affirmative action for minorities in hiring and promotions. He is a close friend of Hillary Clinton, so that may put him out of the running. He’s not a good guy, but he’s far better than Michael Chertoff, in that he at least was a cop and a high-level federal cop.
Sadly, as I’ve noted in the past, Kelly was tight with his former protege, Islamo-panderer Brian Moskowitz a/k/a “Abu Moskowitz”, the sleazy, swinging ICE Special Agent in Charge for Michigan and Ohio, who was seeking extramarital relationships with employees of organizations engaged in immigration fraud, organizations that were under investigation by his agent, and suddenly aren’t now.
And that’s the latest in the ongoing comedy that is not a sitcom, but, sadly, real life for America: ICEfeld.


**** 11/15/08, UPDATE on Ray Kelly, possible new Homeland Security Chief:
One commenter, who claims his name is Tony Attansio and who says he worked in the NYPD and as a federal agent for Ray Kelly, is upset by my comments on Kelly. I have had mixed reactions about Kelly among ICE agents when I wrote about him when Hillary Clinton was the front-runner in the Presidential race.
Certainly, he’d be a vast improvement over Michael Chertoff, but why should Chertoff be the bar? If that’s the case, the bar is set very low. Here’s what I wrote about Ray Kelly, then. I think it’s a pretty even-handed assessment, since Kelly has, indeed, done a decent job of infiltrating and stopping Muslim terrorists, to the great jealousy and disdain of the FBI, which has been incompetent in the same area. At the same time, this began under Bernard Kerik, and Kelly has been very much into “outreach” to Islamic extremists:

Then, there is Hillary Cankles Clinton–for whom I would NEVER EVER vote. She is very good friends with New York Police Commissioner Ray Kelly, who would likely be among Hillary’s top choices to head up DHS. Legacy-Customs agents in Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) have mixed reviews of Kelly’s performance when he ran the then-U.S. Customs Service, a job he got because of his tight friendship with Hillary Clinton.
One former Special Agent in Charge, whom I trust a great deal, told me Kelly’s chief priority was not law enforcement and stopping money laundering and smuggling of goods into America. He said Kelly’s chief priority and objective in Customs was the affirmative action hiring and promotion of minorities, many of whom were not competent because they were not hired or promoted based on qualifications and experience. The former Customs Agent tells me that Kelly was terrible and helped destroy Customs.
And Kelly is friends with dangerous Islamo-pandering ICE officials like Brian Moskowitz a/k/a “Abu Moskowitz,” the ICE Special Agent in Charge over Michigan and Ohio. Abu Moskowitz, a former New York City cop, brown-nosed Kelly. And Kelly, in turn, repeatedly promoted and groomed Abu M (selecting him for the prestigious Customs Leadership Institute), getting him to the position where he is today. Under a Kelly DHS, Moskowitz–who panders to known Islamic terrorists and agents of the Government of Iran and refuses to investigate their illicit activity–might be as protected and unduly promoted as Julie L. Myers a/k/a “The ICE Princess” was and is. NOT a good thing.
On the other hand, as head of New York’s police, Kelly has been doing a great job getting and stopping Islamic terrorists. The NYPD has done such a great job stopping Islamic terrorists in New York, the FBI is angry and jealous. (That includes NYPD counter-terrorism personnel embedded in Israel, to which the FBI strenuously objects.) Most big terrorism suspects thwarted in New York recently have been stopped by NYPD undercover operatives and informants, not those from the FBI. While Kelly has achieved a lot in the fight against terrorism in NYC, he’s hugged and kissed a lot of extremist Muslims in photo ops, in the process. Not a good thing.


Ray Kelly: New DHS Leader?

I asked at that time for agents to respond and comment on Kelly:

I’d love to hear more from ICE agents who’ve worked for Kelly. Please post your comments in this entry and/or e-mail me, and let me know what you think of him.

Read the responses. And please comment now on your reaction to Ray Kelly atop DHS.

It’s partly crap like having someone like this working for the federal government that cost the Republicans the presidential election this year. The Republicans need to start running a much tighter ship.

Debbie, I’m glad the princess is gone, as you have been scratching her eyes out forever now. I have a feeling that Obama’s appointments will make the Bushies look much better in retrospect. In particular, pretty white women are probably going to take a hit. BTW, I hope you haven’t been serving buffalo brisket to unsuspecting Shabbes guests. As for me, I like to keep a few jars of the pareve Manischewitz Matzo Ball Soup on hand, the consumption of which now constitutes the lion’s share of my religious practice.

Debbie, YOU ROCK! I wish there were more Americans like you.

The blackface and Diet Coke pic is hilarious!

ObamaSlammaJamma on November 15, 2008 at 5:35 pm

I would think that a US Attorney who had a good record going after the terrorists but did not have negative baggage similar to what Kelly has would be perfect for the job. Are there any US Attorneys who would fit that description?

It appears that Meyers final official act was to promote the ICE SAC/Dallas from terminal GS/15 to SES. John Chakwin JR, affectionately known as the antichrist (JC Jr) by his more than 125 agents was able to dodge the SES vetting process thanks to Myers and Marcy Foreman his well connected ‘Rabbi’ at ICE. Chakwin is the single most unpopular SAC in Dallas history and universally disliked by the state, local and federal law enforcement community, to include the United States Attorney’s office.
According to sources at ICE in Dallas, Chakwin’s secretary and “close” personal friend who has been accused of being preselected as a higher grade paralegal over a year ago, is still performing both secretarial and girl Friday duties for the boss who makes her so proud. Chakwin’s secretary also appears to serve as his one and only cheer leader and is reportedly the only trusted insider on JC’s staff. But performing paralegal work is still “not her thing”.
However it seems that payback can be a real bitch in Dallas. The personal secretary for the former Chief Counsel at the Department of Health and Human Services in Dallas recently found out that change can be sudden. After many years of escaping numerous allegations of waste, fraud and mismanagement under the cover of her mentor and ‘Rabbi’, the climate suddenly changed at HHS, with the retirement of the Chief Counsel due to a grave illness.
Pegaus reports that Josephine Davis, a former employee in the Dallas regional office of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of General Counsel, pled guilty in federal court to theft of government property, announced U.S. Attorney Richard B. Roper of the Northern District of Texas. Davis, 58, of Dallas, entered her plea to the one-count Information before Chief U.S. District Judge Sidney A. Fitzwater. She faces a maximum statutory sentence of 10 years in prison, a $250,000 fine and restitution. She is scheduled to be sentenced by Judge Fitzwater on January 23, 2009.
According to documents filed in Court, Davis worked as a program analyst and team leader for non-attorney staff at the OGC. She was an authorized user of a government credit card issued to pay for supplies, furniture, training, and maintenance related to the OGC. However, in late 2006 and 2007, Davis charged purchases totaling $9,537.00 to that government credit card to pay for a retirement party for her supervisor. These charges included the cost of banquet facilities, catering, and decorations. Davis admits that she knew she was not authorized to spend OGC funds nor use the government credit card for these purchases.
After charging the party purchases on the government credit card, Davis transferred $10,000.00 from one OGC fund to an OGC “training” budget to pay for the charges.
In addition, from 2004 to 2007, Davis obtained over $10,000.00 from OGC as a result of unsubstantiated requests for overtime, as well as $2,885.00 paid on her behalf for personal use of a government-issued cell phone.
As they say in ICE, Investigation continues.

Under Kelly (And Bloomberg of course) New York has blossomed as a haven for the most radical of Islamic hate groups. The City has become as crazy and as dangerous as Jenin,,,perhaps more.
Under Kelly,(and Bloomberg) the NYPD hhas been ordered to “Stay away” from the Moslems….especially nice folks such as Siraj Wahhaj. Kelly is content to issue plagiarised (From Dr. Paul Williams and others)accounts of their unique “Anti-Terror” operations…….which are basically a green light for radical Islam.
Kelly would be more suited for a position with the PLO than a US Federal agency.

Debbie, thanks for following this story so doggedly. I have heard that Kelly was never the brains behind NYPD. Anyway, it is surely great that the Ice Princess is history. That someone so obviously incompetent was kept by Bush is yet another nail in the coffin of any legacy he’ll have. It’s one thing (and bad) to ignore illegal Mexican aliens, but it is 100x worse to promote jihad from those following the Religion of Peace.

Ray Kelly head of DHS, nope, I dont see it. Kelly hates the feds and routinely does everything he can to upstage them. He wants to be police commissioner of the world and is still bothered by the fact that on 9/11 he was in charge of….. absolutely NOTHING!!! Now he spends his time gathering intell from around the world and sharing little, but takes alot. His precious little NYPD gets a lions share of federal homeland security funding, but disses the Feds by ticketing and towing fed cars (he even refused to give the feds police parking placards earlier this year and said the NYPD would NOT honor placards printed and distributed by the feds).
I cant see him taking a job within the venue he hates with a passion.
As for he previous leadership at Customs…. sorry, not a mover or shaker. He was more interested in putting Inspectors in new uniforms that looked like the NYPD than actual law enforcement or trade legislation.

ICEDover on November 17, 2008 at 9:46 pm

I was midway through a HQ tour when Kelly was in charge. He was more interested in getting on TV than anything else. Not a bad guy, really. Just never did anything significant. Bonner was better.
