    Republican senators called Thursday for the Senate to approve a resolution putting the chamber on record in support of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, saying the government’s top deportation agency does critical work in keeping the country safe. Led by Sens. Ted Cruz and John Kennedy, the resolution counters the call from a growing number of Democrats to abolish ICE over anger at the agency’s role in detaining and deporting illegal immigrants. “Abolishing ICE is unthinkable,” said Mr. Kennedy, a Louisiana Republican...

    The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) held a joint call Tuesday to announce their efforts to comply with a June 26 federal court ruling mandating children under five years old in HHS custody be “reunited” with parents if they were separated at the border. U.S. District Judge Dana Sabraw, in response to an American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) lawsuit, set a July 10 deadline to reunite the families and refused to provide additional time for the government to use DNA testing to determine if the people in question are even the 102...

    Judicial Watch Sues for Documents on Mueller’s Abusive Raid on Trump’s Lawyers In April, Special Counsel Mueller and the DOJ crossed yet another bridge too far, when Mueller recommended, and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein approved, a raid on President Trump’s then-personal attorney’s home and office. At the time of the raid, I tweeted: “The raid is just one more reason to shut the Mueller operation down – it’s constitutionally suspect, ethically compromised, & frankly has no reason for being – given the fact that there’s no evidence of @RealDonaldTrump-Russia collusion.” Judicial Watch began an investigation that has resulted...

    US Border Patrol had the audacity to separate another mother from her 2-year-old child merely for smuggling $157,500 worth of meth with her infant in the backseat of her car! This is a travesty of justice and unbelievably cruel! From US Customs and Border Patrol: YUMA, Ariz. – U.S. Border Patrol agents assigned to the Wellton Station Interstate 8 Immigration Checkpoint arrested a Yuma resident for transporting 41 packages of methamphetamine in her vehicle Monday. At approximately 10:31 a.m., agents sent a green 2005 Chrysler Pacifica to the secondary inspection area for further investigation. A Border Patrol canine positively alerted...

    President Trump’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is seeking to house and detain up to 12,000 illegal aliens in Department of Defense facilities. In a letter to the Defense Department, DHS officials have asked that enough detention space be made available for the agency to detain up to 12,000 illegal aliens, specifically border crossing family units. DHS officials say that if the Defense Department does not have the facilities to house that number, DHS is requesting that the agency identify land space to build “semi-separate, soft-sided camp facilities capable of sheltering up to 4,000 people, at three separate locations,” the...

    Retiring U.S. Immigration and Customs Immigration Enforcement chief official, Thomas Homan, sat down with the Washington Examiner's Anna Giaritelli to discuss his time in the agency and what can be improved upon to increase border security. Homan remarked during the interview that, of the six administrations that he has worked for, no commander-in-chief has more positively impacted the border than President Trump. "It’s just a fact that our sitting president of one year has made a big difference," Homan said. "I've worked for six presidents. I started with Ronald Reagan...No one has done more for border [safety], public safety,...

    A former top Border Patrol official was tapped Saturday to be the acting chief of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Ronald D. Vitiello takes over from Thomas D. Homan, who had been the acting chief since the start of the Trump administration. Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen announced the move, calling Mr. Vitiello a “well-respected career law enforcement officer” and promised he would be a good advocate for agents and officers.
  • Celebrating the history of ICE

    06/29/2018 7:49:01 PM PDT · by ATOMIC_PUNK · 5 replies
    It's a story that began nearly fifteen years ago… With its passage in November 2002, the Homeland Security Act set into motion what would be the single-largest government reorganization since the creation of the Department of Defense. Opening its doors in March 2003, one of the component agencies in the new Department of Homeland Security was the Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, now known as U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement or ICE. ICE was granted a unique combination of civil and criminal authorities to better protect national security and strengthen public safety in response to the deadly attacks perpetrated...

    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is calling for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement to be abolished, saying that the agency has "become a punitive, negative tool for division," and is "no longer acceptable." In calling for the agency to be disbanded, de Blasio echoed comments made by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a political newcomer who vanquished Rep. Joe Crowley (D-N.Y.) in a Democratic primary race on Tuesday. "You need some kind of agency to deal with immigration, but ICE is not that," de Blasio said on "The Brian Lehrer Show" on WYNC. "ICE has proven it can't be that. ICE's...

    The Trump administration may place up to 20,000 unaccompanied migrant children on military bases starting as early as next month, according to a new Pentagon memo. The notification, sent to lawmakers on Wednesday and first reported by The Washington Post, says the Defense Department received a request for assistance from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). “HHS has requested DOD determine its capabilities to provide up to 20,000 temporary beds for unaccompanied children at DOD installations,” the document states. If the Pentagon finds that it can provide such lodging, “the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) requests the...

    "FACT CHECK: Are Democrats Responsible For DHS Separating Children From Their Parents?" "In an interview with NPR's Morning Edition host Steve Inskeep Tuesday, former President Barack Obama's domestic policy director, Cecilia Muñoz, stated unequivocally that separating children from their parents was not a policy the Obama administration followed. "The Obama administration did not do that, no. We did not separate children from their parents," Muñoz said. "This is a new decision, a policy decision put in place by the attorney general," which Muñoz said "puts us in league with the most brutal regimes in the world's history."https://www.npr.org/2018/05/29/615211215/fact-check-are-democrats-responsible-for-dhs-separating-children-from-their-pare

    Protesters confronted Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen inside a Mexican restaurant Tuesday night, chanting “Shame!” over the Trump administration’s policy of separating children from their parents at the border. In video posted on Twitter, protesters are seen heckling Nielson, sitting just feet away at a table with a guest, surrounded by her security. The protesters loudly called for the end of the controversial policy, and the abolition of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, which is a unit under Homeland Security.

    """Democrats’ Border Separation Bill Would Let Nearly All Parents Who Commit Federal Crimes Get Off Scot-Free"""" Democrats’ proposed legislation to prohibit so-called border separations would actually prevent federal law enforcement agencies almost anywhere inside the United States from arresting and detaining criminals who are parents having nothing to do with unlawfully crossing the border and seeking asylum. Every Senate Democrat has now signed on to cosponsor a bill written so carelessly that it does not distinguish between migrant children at the border and U.S. citizen children already within the United States. The bill further does not distinguish between federal officers...

    In recent days, we have seen reporters, Members of Congress, and other groups mislead the public on the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) zero-tolerance policy. Federal law enforcement officers have sworn duties to enforce the laws that Congress passes. Repeating intentionally untrue and unsubstantiated statements about DHS agents, officers, and procedures is irresponsible and deeply disrespectful to the men and women who risk their lives every day to secure our border and enforce our laws. Myth DHS has a policy to separate families at the border. Fact DHS does not have a blanket policy of separating families at the border....

    Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen defended the Trump administration's migrant policies amid growing public backlash in a series of tweets on Sunday, saying the administration does not have a policy of separating families at the border. "This misreporting by Members, press & advocacy groups must stop. It is irresponsible and unproductive. As I have said many times before, if you are seeking asylum for your family, there is no reason to break the law and illegally cross between ports of entry," Nielsen said. "You are not breaking the law by seeking asylum at a port of entry," she continued. "For...

So if you have a website, an important blog...
