Never before have I seen such contempt for law enforcement officers
as what Ive seen from the Gang of Eight
- Chris Crane, ICE Agent union president.
Last week, ICE union chief Chris Crane won a stunning initial court victory in his lawsuit against the Obama Administration. As we reported, Federal Judge Federal Judge Reed OConnor told the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) that they had no power to refuse to deport illegal aliens, and that he was likely to strike down Obama's virtual "DACA" amnesty for millions of illegal aliens. The ruling stunned Washington, and Crane's lawsuit could derail Obama's four-year effort to undermine immigration enforcement nationwide.
In Senate testimony (video below), President of the National Immigration and Customs Enforcement Council Crane slammed the Obama administration and the Senates Gang of Eight for including advocates for illegal aliens, but excluding law enforcement from providing input on the new 'immigration reform' legislation.
Crane testified before the Senate expressing his disgust that law enforcement was shut out of the negotiations on immigration reform. Crane was sitting right next to National Council of La Raza ("The Race") president Janet Murguia when he made his comments. La Raza - a racist intimidation group originally funded by the Mexican Government - was outrageously welcomed to help write the immigration bill, while law enforcement agents were shunned.
Crane recounted to the Judiciary Committee how he was physically escorted out of a Gang of Eight press conference last week and spoken to with anger and disrespect.
Never before have I seen such contempt for law enforcement officers as what Ive seen from the Gang of Eight, he said.
Crane told the Judiciary Committee:
Lawmaking in our nation has indeed taken a strange twist. Senators invite illegal aliens to testify before Congress but American citizens working as law enforcement officers within our nations broken immigration system are purposely excluded from the process and prohibited from providing input.Crane criticized Obama and Congress for choosing a path of legalization for illegals rather than allowing immigration agents to crackdown on enforcement.
Suffice it to say, following the Boston terrorist attack, I was appalled to hear the Gang of Eight telling America that its legislation was what American law enforcement needs.
Unbelievably, [this bill] gives far greater authority to the president and secretary of DHS. Exactly the opposite of what our country needs to create a consistent and effective immigration system, Crane concluded.

How long until he’s Breitbarted?
What a brave man with principles and conviction. He stands with the Constitution and we should stand with him. This was a huge first victory in the courts.
He is also a former Marine, and friend of slain Border agent Brian Terry.
Praying for protection
The question is, who will get to him first, Obama or McCain?
A good argument for public service unions. This is what they are for.To stand up for professional standards of service.
Three and half more years of this! The RNC better throw everything they got at 2014. The House must be kept and the Senate won. Yes, I know it will be the feckless Repub leadership, but the Dems will be ineffective as well. And Obama will not have the redoubt of a Dem Senate majority to mask his agenda. The big O will be forced to veto or sign bills, including a budget.
Our law enforcement and military have had about enough of out wanna be dictator/emperor -
If they think our law enforcement/military will turn on us for them!!!
A man with genuine principle; a rare breed these days.
I’m not hearing a peep from the Repubs. I have a feeling it’s going to be us versus both parties on this.
does DACA stand for Don’t Ask, Can’t Act?

Either we stop these people, or America will be destroyed, and quickly.
” The RNC better throw everything they got at 2014.”
NO, they are throwing every person against amnesty under the bus.
I agree sadly it seems the arms of the Mexican government (La Raza) have already inflirated our traitorous political leaders.
Thanks for the ping, and I completely agree with you.
Any of our lawmakers who stand with La Raza and against Chris Cane must not be forgotten, and vice versa.
That video is a must-see.
Ping for later
What do Schumer, Durbin, Menendez, Bennet, McCain, Flake, Graham and Rubio have in common?
They all proposed the bill on Amnesty for illegals while you were watching the coverage on Boston.
