Fireworks erupt between Sessions, Napolitano over morale of ICE agents during Senate hearing [VIDEO]
The Daily Caller ^ | 4/23/13 | Jeff Poor

Posted on 04/23/2013 12:18:41 PM PDT by Nachum

During a Senate hearing on immigration reform Tuesday, Republican Sen. Jeff Sessions and Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano had a testy back-and-forth over the performance of Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials.

Sessions challenged Napolitano on whether she had met with leader of the ICE employees’ union in the wake of reports of low morale among ICE agents. Napolitano replied that she had not.

“I think you should have met with them,” Sessions said. “I think there’s a real problem there. We have a very real problem. In December of 2012, a few months ago, a survey of federal agencies showed that morale of ICE employees has dropped in rankings to 279th out of 291 federal agencies. Were you aware that the morale at ICE has plummeted?”

Janet Napolitano vs. Hillary Clinton vs. Elizabeth Warren. The Dems have some prized candidates for 2016.

I’m sure she couldn’t possibly care less.

“But here’s what I expect as a former federal prosecutor and attorney general, and that is that law enforcement agents will enforce the law in accord with the guidance they are given from their superiors.

The guidance they are given from their superiors is the problem. I have an ICE agent that lives next door. He says it is a cluster^&*+.

As part time deputy grammar police (ok FR has no grammar police, and that’s a good thing) I do thank you for using that expression correctly.

Speaking of morale, didn’t I read that suicide in the military is at an epic high? Is anyone bringing this to light or doing anything about it? Or is Obama just continuing to cut their pay & benefits while funneling & to Islamists in Egypt, etc.?

The sad part is.... the country is so far gone and the electorate's mentality so diseased, any one of those three would wipe the floor with the "best" republican.

Perhaps the Dems won’t be quite so popular once Obamacare kicks into high gear. Baucus didn’t retire because he was a shoo-in, that’s for sure.

The Mombasa MF has the tough lesbo out running interference, and using nothing more than bad-bull-dyke-in-a-bar intimidation, she's actually doing quite well. Concentrate on her, let him skip blithely through.

If only one of our emerging Republican "heroes" had the cojones to confront Reggie's BF directly, this country might have a chance.

A thought for Republicans in the Senate: "Why doesn't one of you fellows talk to Sheriff Joe Arpaio. He's from Arizona, just like Big Jan.

In a normal world, that'd be the case, but the "media" will be there with their leader, convincing voters Obamacare would be a blazing success if Republicans didn't stand in the way of its implementation.

Yeah, what about that Saudi that was whisked away back to safety?

What about those Chechen boys living expensive lifestyles with no visible means of support?

Guess I'm just a stupid flyover country good old boy worried more about the little mysterious Saudi bastard than I am about low morale ICE workers, for some reason.

What difference does it make? They won’t be allowed to do their job anyway so why should Napolitanadyke care if they are demoralized? She prefers them that way!

That’s exactly right.

ICE agents are being told to leave illegals alone unless they are carruying drugs of importing whores.

They are being told to ignore the law and only make outright criminals a priority.

Napolitano stated flat out that agents are being told not to do their job, but to do what she tells them to do.
Leave illegals alone.

Anyone still wonder why they are coming across in droves?

Good job, Sessions.

Incompetano does not like to be challenged. Typical for leftists and lesbians.

If Obama gets an F for his presidency, Napolitano’s grade would be F to the nth degree.

I ask again, WHY does she still have a job?

How would you remove her from her office? No one is big enough to throw her out by himself or herself. No three or four guys are big enough. And send in a squad, Napolitano could cut a Oregano-and-garlic generated blue darter that would kill them all.
