Skip to comments.ICE union president: Rubio ‘directly misled law enforcement’
Posted on 06/23/2013 11:28:52 PM PDT by Nachum
In advance of a critical vote Monday on a border security deal offered by Republican Sens. Bob Coker and John Hoeven, the president of the Immigrations and Customs Enforcement union urged senators to vote no on the amendment.
National ICE Council President Chris Crane issued an aggressive statement calling on lawmakers to vote no on the amendment to the Senates immigration reform bill and called out Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio for misleading law enforcement on promises of more interior enforcement.
Senator Corker a lead sponsor of the 1,200 page amendment being voted on today has admitted that needed interior enforcement provisions are absent. Senator Rubio, who promised ICE officers and Sheriffs that he would take steps to repair the bills provisions that gut interior enforcement, has abandoned that commitment, Crane said. He directly misled law enforcement officers.

Chris, these guys couldn’t give a rat’s ass what you think. The OBL money is flowing right into their bank accounts. That’s all that matters.
Hell, they’ve thrown the US taxpayer over board, you think they are concerned about you?
Folks, this is the “hill to die on”.
“This bill accelerates immigration so much that it will effectively merge the populations of the USA and Mexico. Territorial merger will logically follow.”
It’s called the North American Union. The globalist’s wet dream.
“The Man Who Sold the World”
Rubio threw it all away...
Marco, the man who has totally screwed this bill up to the
point it may never pass and that’s a good thing. Besides
unions are liberal communist enclaves anyway so who cares.
Way to go Rubio. The Jar Jar Binks of the Republican party.
I wish he’d get over his McCainism and back to conservatism.
Two words: "El Presidente."
The GOP-e is stupid enough to think that Señator Rubio will still appeal to the Tea Party when he decides to run for President. If there isn't a quid pro quo somewhere around here I'll eat my keyboard.
I’ll call you a liar also. Go away.
I've watched the Cruz/Boling video interview and Cruz clearly states he's only for the legalization of LEGAL immigrants (those who've come here legally and followed our immigration process).
Cruz is FOR securing the border FIRST...BEFORE any further legislation.
Stop posting that Cruz is for legalization without posting the facts of the type of legalization he's actually for.
That’s actually not at all what Cruz says in that interview.
Hang in there and thanks for what you're doing. If nothing else, we'll know who the Tr8ors are and that we gave it our best, to save this great nation.
I’m not lying and I’m not going away.
What else does he say? I've listened to it. Tell me what I'm missing.
Not sure what your issue is with Cruz. He's one of the few in DC that's actually trying to turn this boat around...by stopping the tyranny taking place.
Will it count if we call Senators not in our area? My 2 are a waste of time. But I heard in the past that they won’t even count my call if I’m not one of their constituents.
So much potential wasted. MR had many fooled by saying all the right things to get elected Senator and develop national appeal. Unfortunately, he is an easily manipulated fool for the enemies of this country and is clearly deserving of the scorn he has sown in such a short time. He really is a traitor, along with every politician that passes legislation they don’t read.
The absurdity of it all is too familiar at this point and the secret unread provisions are what will ultimately destroy the USA as we know it.
Excuse me, sir. It depends on the “Asian”.
I already told you.
And yes, he’s better than many GOP sellouts, but that shows just how far they’ve moved the ball—that our supposed best hope is someone who is for a massive legalization if only we can tweak some preconditions.
You’ve got to look beyond the rhetoric to the actual positions that they support. Cruz is like most TX pols (hello, Rick Perry), who loudly tout their conservatism, but since Texas is already so lost to Hispanic immigration, legal and otherwise, are ready to sell out the country to the demographics change they’ve already undergone.
YES! I've already called other Senators.
I called Murkowski's office and told her staffer that this bill has $$ in it to buy AK union votes for Murk.
I begin with asking if they (staffer) knows how Senator XX is planning on voting on the Corker amendment, today. I then say that I'll be watching the votes on this, closely. And, that ANYONE who votes for this monstrosity is voting AGAINST American workers and America....and FOR lining their pockets with special interest $$.
I also mentioned that I'd work feverishly to support the primary opponent of ANY Repub voting FOR this absurdity.
When did Cruz say he was FOR legalizing ILLEGAL’s?
Yep. The whole lot of them are well versed at misleading as they call it.
called all the offices and only got through to less than half but I still let a message and now I;m mailing them all but where are other freepers besides a few , What is the point of coming on here moaning about this bill and then doing nothing to stop it?
just called all and now mailing all
I've thought about that but I just can't see an all-Florida ticket.
For one thing, it would be against the law.
I pray many many others are following your lead. Great Job! Am lagging somewhat behind you though am utilizing email only. Many were saying that the voice mailboxes were full just yesterday iirc. Did you get through to a person or voice-mail or combination of the two?
Everyone posting should make at least 2 - 3 phone calls to Senate DC or field offices. Do it!!
Lists of phone numbers have been posted on numerous threads, folks!!
my apology you answered my question at this point am linked to. Thank you and no response necessary on my question in prior post.
How many freepers come here post and then only make one call or don’t even make a call but complain about bills and the country?
We have lets say 300 freepers, who can make 5 calls and then get their spouse or kids to make a couple fo calls then congress will hear us.
Then talk radio who has millions make those calls too and this bill will be dead.
Understand that this is the President of a union whose membership would purportedly be doubled by Corker-Hoeven. And they are asking the Senate to vote against it.
That is a powerful statement, indeed.
So love your statement. Call a spade a spade and stop the games!!! It is all BS. We all know it! But the dems have to make it into a wonderful thing. Does this bill just cover Mexicans only, or can Dominicans come in too?
Didn’t Cheney register to vote in another state? I could see Jeb doing that to get a beloved Hispanic on the ticket.
I'm guessing it involves either little girls or little boys.
I will be ‘borrowing’ them and make some calls too.
I think the union is opposing he entire bill.
There were stories about a month ago on Fox, Wash Examiner and Times and also Breitbart about the immigration agencies unions are opposing the bill. The other union President said the volume would be so great that there’d be no option other than to rubber stamp everybody.
Yes, Cheney switched his residence from Texas to Wyoming to be GWB’s running mate.
But Cheney’s personal and political history were based in Wyoming. Not seen as a big deal, Jeb’s career has been in FL. Very different deal than Cheney’s switch.
Jeb also has considerable ties to Texas. I can see him registering there.
Yes. But Cheney had been born and raised in Wyoming, was elected to Congress from Wyoming and had always maintained a residence there. Indeed, there was more reason to accept Cheney as a resident of Wyoming than as a resident of Texas.
There is no reason to accept Rubio as a resident of any state other than Florida. Accordingly, it would have to be Jeb Bush who would have to change states -- to Texas, where he was born and raised.
Your entire post is nothing but GOP-e pablum. You are trying to weave a laughable line of reasoning that tries to justify what is plain reality in front of us.
You have not understanding of the power and the march of the Statist of both parties.
Oh and for you Palin fans, she is out of her league when trying to play this game.
What a disgusting statement. I suggest you read the reality of Sarah's 18 years in public service. She took on entrenched elitists of both parties in her state and soundly defeated them.
Sarah sees clearly the evil of crony capitalism and the power-hungry Statists of both parties.
It doesn't take a nuanced genius to weave a solution -- as your dumb post implies.
No, it takes a leader that will rally the people to elect politicians who will dismantle the unconstitutional parts of the Federal leviathan.
Sarah out of her league?? What Founder would even consider a 1200 page bill worthy of even a glance? NONE. Sarah has the Founders love of Liberty in her DNA. You can go hang out with your arrogant elitist friends who are destroying our Republic.
I DETEST TRAITORS and LIARS and PHONIES!!! MR fits ALL THREE!
That's what I'm saying. Jeb would walk on hot coals to get a Hispanic king in waiting.
Let's face it... just another worthless POS politician.
Law enforcement wasn’t even consulted in the bill’s drafting
May his feet burn down to the ankles...
The states that have the most "skin in the game" should have a say in scoring the results. They CERTAINLY have to compensate for the downside of non-performance.
Youve got to look beyond the rhetoric to the actual positions that they support. Cruz is like most TX pols (hello, Rick Perry), who loudly tout their conservatism, but since Texas is already so lost to Hispanic immigration, legal and otherwise, are ready to sell out the country to the demographics change theyve already undergone.
How about you fill the rest of us in...?!
Your take on TX politics is ignorant at best. Actions speak LOUDER than words. I'll take the results of Texas over anything you can tout newbie.
Read my profile and In-Forum posts before attacking me...
Sure didn’t take somebody long to type up 1200 pages of crap. That’s like writing 3 or 4 novels. Who actually writes these bills?
Marco Rubio the Salt Water Wet Back
I was listening to the Hannity Comedy Show yesterday while I was in my tractor and he wondered how Rubio was going to vote on this. I liked to cracked up laughing so hard that here was Hannity wondering how this sellout was going to vote.
Oh and by the way. For me, I never fell for the crap that was coming from this amnesty loving wetbacks mouth
