WASHINGTON — The director of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency said on Monday he will step down at the end of July to go to the private sector after heading the agency for four years. "I am extremely proud of what we have accomplished together during that time and look with awe on the incredible progress ICE has made as an agency," ICE Director John Morton said in making the announcement in an internal message to employees that was made available to Reuters. "ICE has truly come of age and become an innovative, leading force in federal law enforcement."

A political and PC correct(openly gay) appointee that admitted under oath in front of a congressional committee that even though the Sequestration act had been passed almost three years previously “ we started preparing for it in January of 2013”

“I am extremely proud of what we have accomplished together during that time...”

I totally disagree. You could have done a much better job allowing many more hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants to come across our borders into this Nation. And you could have done a much better job of letting them go once they were caught.

It's a lucrative field, especially if you have the ear of the President.

That's like a backhoe operator breaking a sewer pipe which floods your property, coming up to you and telling you how proud he is of his accomplishment.

In other words... "We've prepared more reports on time and done a better job of achieving the Administration's goals than ever before."

What a incompetent. Other than illegal aliens and terrorists does anyone believe this fool wasn’t incompetent?
