The head of Immigration and Customs Enforcement defended the role of federal agents in transporting illegal immigrant children after a federal judge complained they were hand-delivering smuggled kids to parents in the United States.
While the courts comments did not relate specifically to ICE, it is clear that the transportation of unaccompanied children (UAC) by ICE personnel is appropriate and legal, acting Director John Sandweg wrote in a brief email obtained by FoxNews.com.
The email was sent Monday and addressed to all ICE employees.
Sandweg noted that recent media reports on the judges order had prompted discussion about whether ICE personnel may lawfully transport alien minors.
Hanens order, though, claimed the Obama administration was engaging in a risky practice by delivering some children to their parents. He argued that the practice would only encourage more parents to have their children smuggled over the border, through operations often connected to the drug cartels.
"These actions are both dangerous and unconscionable," he wrote.
Critics say these policies and others are creating a magnet for illegal immigration. Statistics released late last week showed the number of children crossing the U.S.-Mexico border has in fact surged over the last two years.

Please note the date. Yes, I missed this in Dec, too. Of course, Fox was the only one chasing this. Regrettably, I don't believe they followed it up until last month.
This explains the 'contracts for housing' discovered from the spring. There is no doubt this Administration created this. It's right there in black & white. Once they worked out the 'legality' of transporting the minors, the floodgates should have opened. Obviously something stimulated the delayed response. If it were Mexican/Central American media responding to this court case, the 'flood' would have occurred in the Spring, not the deadly Summer heat. Between the lack of headlines prior and the printed 'notes' for the illegals, there's simply no doubt this was engineered by staff in this Administration.
However, this has been going on since before Bush
Make no mistake: Republicans want amnesty, too.
It will be interesting to see what Cruz ends up drafting in the way of a Bill to deal with this...
The ICE director speaks for The One.. and The One IS the law.
Stalinists lie. ALWAYS
The United States shall guarantee to every state in this union a republican form of government, and shall protect each of them against invasion; and on application of the legislature, or of the executive (when the legislature cannot be convened) against domestic violence.
Treason. Pure and simple
Stalinists lie. Muzzies lie,—so Hussein is a twofer!
just like the rest of this administrations employees, they are all ass kissing lackeys of the fraud in the WH
