Your Tax $$$ @ Work: ICE Builds “More Attractive to Immigrants” Center

By Debbie Schlussel
**** CORRECTION, 05/11/09: ICE agents inform me that this building is not an ICE building but a Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS) building and that ICE is stuck at the Mt. Elliot building. Sorry, ICE, for the mistake. ****
Just how much taxpayer money did Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) spend to build a new “green” immigration center in Detroit designed to be “more attractive” to immigrants?
Remember “The ICE Princess”–incompetent former ICE chieftess Julie L. Myers, who promised fiscal restraint at her confirmation hearings? She and her buddy John “Costanza” Torres–the current acting chief of ICE–approved this spending boondoggle which benefits NON-citizens.

A new immigration office opened Wednesday in Detroit.
The building, 11411 E. Jefferson Ave., was designed to be environmentally friendly by using recycled materials and sunlight. The design also reduces storm water runoff, officials said.
It also was hoped to provide a more attractive place for immigrants. The previous facility, on Mt. Elliott in Detroit, was cramped and dark, officials said.



Thanks, ICE, for Our New “Green” “More Attractive” Immigration Center
So, now we’re not only persecuting ICE agents for doing their jobs, setting free the illegal aliens they captured and giving them work permits, but we’re spending money to make our buildings more “attractive” to immigrants?
Your tax dollars (not) @ work.

Let’s not forget that this is also to accommodate the bureaucratic buffoons at CIS. The same entity which issued EAD’s to the Seattle aliens so they could persecute CIS’ fellow ICE brethren in OI. CIS is filled with nothing more than traitorous, anti-American, anti-law enforcement high school droputs. Or at least that’s my perception of them!

Nothing changes except the faces. This is another example of misuse of government funds and dereliction of attending to the more pressing matters of investigations/prosecution of criminal aliens. As always, this will get swept under the carpet and nobody will get held accountable.
Don’t look for any investigation into this as OIG is tasked with more important crap like screwing the agents trying to do their jobs or just tending to their own business, not trying to stir the pot.
Why is a new center needed anyway when they can’t operate the old one effectively? The entire DHS family (ICE, CBP, CIS) have been going down the tank since inception and the future continues to look bleak.
Man, I’m glad to be gone…

Damn right ICEnomore. I look back and it’s like it was all a bad dream. I am amazed at how the situation gets worse every day, week, and month. A few people have said to some of us who left, “I bet you regret it now, since we’re going back to Customs.” Yea whatever! So long as they don’t encounter any aliens, and jump through all of the hoops Napolitano has in place now and in the future. Like having seven reporting requirements for an enforcement action. I too am glad to be gone!
