Disgusted ICE Agent Faces Down ‘Gang of Eight’ in Dramatic Senate Testimony (Video)

“Never before have I seen such contempt for law enforcement officers
as what I’ve 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 O’Connor 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 Senate’s 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 I’ve 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 nation’s broken immigration system are purposely excluded from the process and prohibited from providing input.

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.

Crane criticized Obama and Congress for choosing a path of legalization for illegals rather than allowing immigration agents to crackdown on enforcement.

“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.

this leo fails to connect the dots that it isnt about immigration - its about growing dem voter roles and increasing the dependent voting class

our parties have sold us (the Country) out for increased poll wins, and by extension, power over us - ......enslavement

I got called tonight by - can’t remember the actual name - but the group for raising ‘support and money’ for the Congressional Republicans.

I told them;”I’m no longer a Repbulican. I’m a Conservative.”
They said: “ We are too!”
I replied:”No, you’re Rinos. I don’t support Rino’s. Have a good night.” and hung up.
