Skip to comments.ICE agents warn Americans “to brace themselves for what’s coming”
Posted on 06/24/2011 3:43:38 PM PDT by Nachum
In the wake of the recent memo from the Obama administration which announced prosecutorial discretion in dealing with illegal aliens, Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents across the country have been speaking out what many of them are calling a backdoor amnesty.
On Wednesday, ICE Union president Chris Crane told PRNewswire: Any American concerned about immigration needs to brace themselves for what's coming. This is just one of many new ICE policies in queue aimed at stopping the enforcement of U.S. immigration laws in the United States. Unable to pass its immigration agenda through legislation, the Administration is now implementing it through agency policy.
Crane continued: ICE and the Administration have excluded our union and our agents from the entire process of developing policies, it was all kept secret from us, we found out from the newspapers. ICE worked hand-in-hand with immigrants rights groups, but excluded its own officers.
Also ignored by the press, was last year's no confidence vote ICE agents gave Obama appointee, ICE director John Morton.
The National ICE Council represents about 7,000 agents and support staff.
Those agents, just as many American citizens are also convinced that the new policy, which gives special preference to illegal aliens who have a relative who has served in the military, those who are enrolled in any education program and even those who are pregnant or nursing is simply to a move from an unpopular president, desperate for re-election.

The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Dear Leader is counting on ACORN and millions of fraudulent votes to keep his job. The lower his polls go, the more desperate he’ll be to open the border.
Silly me! I always thought deportation and/or incarceration of illegals once identified as such was the LAW of the land. Disobedience of these laws is grounds for prosecution of whoever orders it - even if it is Obama!
A big impeachable offense.
So... a rat judge can ‘sentence’ an illegal to the military rather than jail time, who doesn’t even have to see combat but can instantly turn 20 of his family into registered rat voters?
Our officers are already under orders not to make arrests or even talk to foreign nationals in most cases unless another agency has already arrested them; you won’t find that written in any public ICE policy, Crane said.
Finally, this warning from the ICE Union president: I think the writing is on the wall for every person concerned about good government and effective immigration reforms - the things happening at ICE represent neither. We are asking everyone to please email or call your Congressman and Senators immediately and ask them to help stop what’s happening at ICE, we desperately need your help.
Congressional cowards...will do nothing.
Impeachment will never remove Obama. There is not enough backbone in Washington to do that. It will take the people with a vote or other methods.
Lawlessness and chaos, courtesy of King Obama.
So is the gunwalker crime. One day, someone must do something about it, but it will not be congress.
Wow.... literally anything for the Mexican vote.
Its worse than that Mitt, Huntsman and the republican elite respect the AH and would choke before an unkind word about him would leave their mouth.
Obama is really an African dictator, in the Marxist image of Chavez, Che, Mugabe and his cousin Odinga in Kenya.
He, along with Hillary Clinton and the establishment Left, are disciples of Saul Alinsky (admittedly) who see a Communist United States the end goal, and there are no morals to achieving that Marxist utopia here.
You are right, La Raza, ACORN, Soros and the rest of the grievance groups will whatever it takes to steal this election.
That is why Bev Purdue’s decision in NC was so disappointing yesterday, along with Obama’s de-facto amnesty via Executive Order...
I hope President Palin or Bachmann pursues legal action against Obama, Holder and Nappy.
This is one reason why this country isn`t going to survive in its present form. There are simply too many forces arrayed against it.
Bill Clinton almost got the boot for a lot less than this.
It’s way past time for a Second Amendment solution.
I’m sure he has Americorp doing some work for him too.
That would require an opposition party willing to stand up, fight, and enforce the law. All we've got is Boehner and the Republicans.
Almost like our country is being fundamentally transformed.
Use unions on the administration. Defund all INS / ICE / Border Operations, right now.
I would love to immigrate to New Zealand but however, unlike this country, they are sticklers on immigration !
I thought that the only aliens allowed into the military are permanent resident aliens (with a green card). I suspect that this story about “why should we deport people who have served honorably in our military” is (military terminology) Bravo Sierra. If people with phony identities and no social security numbers can get inside our military we are in trouble.
Exactly. Once the Democrats got away with ignoring the Defense of Marriage Act they simply moved on to ignoring immigration law.
Hope those %&*ers don’t mind if when Sarah Palin gets elected next year she chooses to ignore seventy years of gun laws.
And, you're counting on whom to bring them? The Pubbies!!???
I was hoping W would prosecute the Clintons. I was stupid to even think he would consider it.
Bill Clinton didn’t come close to getting the boot. It was decided long before the actual joke of a trial.
If one side has decided that laws only mean something when you want them to then the other side will soon do the same thing. Laws and society only work if people by and large agree to follow the laws which have been made in an orderly and lawful process.
I have wondered what would happen if the U.S. shut down all immigration from everywhere else in the world except South of the border in order to admit, as quickly as possible, all those who are willing to come here legally. Get in line, do the paperwork and you are welcome. It would remove the idea that we are simply against Latinos and focus the issue on the idea that we are against breaking the law. Defacto it would irritate the other countries who would be cut off from coming because of their spaces being given to the Latinos. Not sure if the process even works on allotment of spaces given to different countries, so this may just be crazy talk.
Scary times... feelings of lawlessness and chaos...
AND the muslim vote.
I LIKE it! Where get?
They are not cowards. Most of them agree with Obama on this.
Well, I never said what CONgress would do. I agree, they won’t lift a finger to seriously go after Obama.
I tell people this all the time.....all I get is dumb looks
We are already over the cliff, just haven't started falling downward yet
I agree that scary times are ahead, but take stock in the fact that Obama’s grand scheme isn’t exactly playing out as they thought. Now, I’m guessing here, but this is what I think they thought would happen (in no particular order)...
Drop DADT and cause a large exodus from the military of conservative Christian types.
Produce results of “gunrunner” to restrict 2nd Amendment rights.
Pass Amnesty, which would fill the ranks of the military up with liberal democrap clones.
Set up martial law under the guise of a “national emergency” with the Amnesty/military clones.
Of course much of those things aren’t playing out quite right for Obama, but if Republicans/conservatives don’t get someone to replace him next year, the above could come to play.
That’s exactly right. It’s already done. We little people are just going through the painful realization now.
Again, why can’t the federal govt. be charged under the RICO statute?! Specifically the Obama White House.
Damn, I wish I still had the link, but I lost it when my third dinosaur computer died about a month ago.
Lemme do some hunting. If I find it, I'll give you a ping.
Shut the kenyan dung heaps Money off,he refuses to do his job,Then why pay the Bastard?
Many people I know are going, I call it mini Galt, scaling back their financial footprint, try and save like crazy, learning trades on the side, thinking in terms of self sustaining. etc.
I think many people know in the pit of their gut, this isn't going to end well at all. Not even remotely for many people
Can not the House of Representatives petition the courts to order the law of the land be enforced?
The courts can order forced busing, enforce other elements of the civil rights act, and any number of other rulings where the legislative branch must obey the court.
Why not this?
and then some ...........
Are the Repubs going to say anything? Do anything? How can federal agencies do this? If the Rs say/do nothing, they’re worse than useless.
