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.

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.
