  • 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...

    Voting by illegal immigrants is easy to do and is being done in the United States, a former ICE agent explained on "The O'Reilly Factor." ... In addition to winning the Electoral College in a landslide, I won the popular vote if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally . - Trump. ... To assess the claim, O'Reilly talked to retired ICE Special-Agent-In-Charge Claude Arnold, who said he "routinely" arrested illegal immigrants who had voter registrations. "I worked in six locations across the United States. I probably arrested more than 1,000 illegal aliens in my career and I...

    Full title: Illegal Alien Who Butchered Conn. Woman Not Deported After Serving 15 Yrs. for Murder Because Haiti Refused to Repatriate An illegal immigrant who stabbed a young Connecticut woman to death after completing a 15-year sentence for murder couldn’t be deported by the U.S. government because his homeland, which receives billions in aid from Uncle Sam, wouldn’t take him back—three times! So federal authorities released the violent criminal, a Haitian national, and didn’t even bother tracking his whereabouts allowing him to commit yet another heinous crime. Now, a year after an innocent woman was viciously butchered to death in...

    On Friday Breitbart News published an exclusive interview with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Council President Chris Crane.

    Dear Dan: Go ahead, man. Lean over the toilet and let it out. It must have been hard to include Wisconsin Reporter – even backhanded – among the winners in your post-election “Winners and Losers” column. Don’t fight it, Dan. I’ll hold your hair. In crediting Michael Grebe with Gov. Scott Walker’s Election Day win over Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mary Burke, you note that Grebe – Walker’s campaign chairman and head of (what you call) “the conservative Bradley Foundation” – “has poured money into online outlets that dig up dirt on Democrats and liberals.” One of those groups, you say,...

    According to her resume, Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mary Burke spent 1994 and some of 1995 working as the “Administrator” of the non-profit trade group Bicycle Industry Organization (BIO). However, an IRS document shows an address for the trade group that also happens to be a home formerly owned by Burke – a home that was purchased at least seven months after Burke claims she left BIO. According to Burke’s resume, Burke left BIO in 1995 and that same year returned to Trek Bicycle – her family’s business – as Director of Forecasting and Strategic Planning. According to a Dan Bice...

    The top Homeland Security official accused of cultivating a "frat-house"-style work environment has "voluntarily placed herself on leave" amid an internal review, the department told late Tuesday evening -- just hours after contacted the agency about new allegations against her. Two more Immigration and Customs Enforcement employees came forward this week to complain about "lewd" conduct inside the agency, submitting sworn affidavits that depict graphic comments made by two top officials working under DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano. The affidavits were given as part of a discrimination and retaliation suit filed earlier this year by James T. Hayes Jr.,...

    GAINESVILLE, Mo. -- Its a hot button issue in the Ozarks and nation. Illegal immigration has some asking, 'is enough being done.' U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (I.C.E.) was created under the Department of Homeland Security to ensure our nation's safety. KY3 found answering the simple question of 'who can be arrested?' is complicated. "Imagine my head hurting," Ozark County Sheriff Raymond Pace said. "I had five right off the border, still had pesos, looking for a Bank of America to cash in their pesos and get American dollars." Sheriff Pace brought undocumented immigrants to his office and called I.C.E....

    A recently introduced immigration reform bill in the U.S. House of Representatives could potentially end a federal immigration program currently used by the Town of Herndon to empower its local officers to enforce federal immigration law. In March 2007, the Herndon Town Council voted to make Herndon the first incorporated town in America to allow U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement to train and empower local officers to enforce federal immigration law under a program called 287(g). Prince William and Loudoun counties and the cities of Manassas and Manassas Park also partner with ICE in the 287(g) program. But as of...

    The nondescript 737 jet taxied to the front of the runway line at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport. Aboard the flight, 53 passengers stared out windows as their rising plane banked toward Mexico and their handcuffs glinted in the morning sun. This is U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Flight Repatriate, a booming airline ferrying illegal immigrants out of the country. Flying worldwide from O'Hare and 22 other airports, the so-called ICE Air planes transported more than 367,000 illegal immigrants, including 11,500 from the Chicago area, out of the U.S. from October 2007 to October 2008—a 26 percent increase over the previous...

    How expensive is illegal immigration for the U.S.? The answer may depend on who you ask. Some argue that, overall, illegal immigrants help our economy while others insist their presence creates a fiscal deficit in the billions. Recently, Action 4 News gained exclusive access and insight on the costs of detaining and deporting illegal immigrants. It is just after 4 a.m. But already the nation's largest detention center for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (or ICE) in Raymondville, Texas is bustling with activity. The crew has been preparing for hours to deport a group of 132 Hondurans to their country....

    The Northern Virginia office of the federal agency that processes immigration applications will hold its first public forum next month to answer questions from immigrants. The forum also is intended to spread word that the agency, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, or USCIS, is distinct from its feared federal cousins, the Border Patrol and Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE. "We don't want people to fear us," said Greg Christian, director of the Vienna office of USCIS.... The agency is often an impenetrable bureaucracy with complicated forms and a help hotline that dispenses unreliable information. It has also recently...

    Rodriguez is hardly alone, say local business owners who cater to Hispanic immigrants. They say state laws aimed at curbing illegal immigration, along with several high-profile raids in Colorado by Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials over the past year, have scared away their immigrant clientele.
