On Tuesday, Chris Crane, president of the union representing more than 7,600 rank-and-file ICE agents, told the House Judiciary Committee how the agency is "now guided in large part by the influences of powerful special interest groups that advocate on behalf of illegal aliens."
These influences have in large part eroded the order, stability and effectiveness of the agency, creating confusion among all ICE employees. For the last four years it has been a roller coaster for ICE officers with regard to who they can or cannot arrest, and which federal laws they will be permitted to enforce. Most of these directives restricting enforcement are given only verbally to prevent written evidence from reaching the public.
Most Americans would be surprised to know that immigration agents are regularly restricted from enforcing the two most fundamental sections of United States immigration law
That policy, announced by ICE Director John Morton in June 2011, informed officials that they no longer have to deport illegal aliens if they are enrolled in any type of education program, if their family members have volunteered for U.S. military service, if they have filed a civil rights lawsuit or even if they are pregnant or nursing.
In October 2011, Crane told a House Judiciary subcommittee: "Law enforcement and public safety have taken a back seat to attempts to satisfy immigrant advocacy groups."
Shortly after the Morton memo was issued, Crane spoke to PRNewswire, and offered the following warning:
Any American concerned about immigration needs to brace themselves for what's coming. This is just one of many new ICE policies in queue aimed at stopping the enforcement of U.S. immigration laws in the United States. Unable to pass its immigration agenda through legislation, the Administration is now implementing it through agency policy.

The Regime does not believe in the Rule of Law.
That’s why Africa, Asia, Central and South America are as in a shambles as they are, no law, no standards, just a free-for-all.
Europe, Australia and the US were the last holdouts, now the Marxists want us dead or broke, so we are toppling over.
Ban government employee unions! There is something inherently wrong with a union of government employees, especially law enforcement, that has lobbyists in the government.
We had better be praying that come 2016 there will be something we can change.
“Ban government employee unions! There is something inherently wrong with a union of government employees, especially law enforcement, that has lobbyists in the government.”
In this case, you’re wrong. The border patrol people are trying to do the job, it’s not their fault they can’t. They’re letting us know the truth.
So what are governors waiting on?
The left is all about infiltration. Government, education, Even the boy Scouts. It come straight from the communist plan to take over America. Smart people best realize that.
