U.S. House member Pete Stark (D-CA) recently reminded an audience that our borders enjoyed full security. He denigrated members of the audience that disagreed. As with most of the U.S. Congress, they stand away from the reality of our unguarded borders. Reality check: the borders stand as open today as they stood on 9/11. Recently, 7,000 ICE agents rendered a no-confidence vote for ICE Director John Morton. That rendered a de facto “no-confidence” vote for Homeland Security chief Janet Napolitano.Examiner Journalist Dave Gibson wrote: “Head of ICE receives unanimous no-confidence vote from own agents…accused of de facto amnesty.”
“It has just come to light that on June 11, 2010, the National Immigration and Customs Enforcement Council and their local chapter representatives, which represent 7,000 ICE agents working across the country, took a vote of no-confidence on ICE Director John Morton, resulting in a 259-0 total against the director,” said Gibson. “The union also drafted a letter citing examples of how Morton has failed the country, by misrepresenting the extent of the dangers posed by criminal aliens; turning detainment centers into resorts, where illegal aliens are allowed to roam free, and no longer subject to searches; and basically creating a de facto amnesty, in lieu of enforcement. The letter is entitled “VOTE OF NO CONFIDENCE IN ICE DIRECTOR JOHN MORTON AND ODPP ASSISTANT DIRECTOR PHYLLIS COVEN .”
Why do you suppose those on the front line voted “no confidence”? Simple: they know that Napolitano and Morton lie, obfuscate, suppress, ignore, deny and avoid telling the truth. Those two continue the façade even as more Americans discover the truth in their own communities as more and more fresh illegals arrive in their schools, hospitals and prisons.
Denver Post today, “Waiting to see a doctor” by
Jennifer Brown, 8/9/10, reported that more ‘needy’ patients at 60,000, meaning
aliens, overwhelm the hospital and cost $436,000.00 for ‘free care’
last year and more this year.
ICE FAILS AMERICANS
“While ICE reports internally that more than 90 percent of ICE detainees are first encountered in jails after they are arrested by local police for criminal charges, ICE senior leadership misrepresents this information publicly in order to portray ICE detainees as being non-criminal in nature to support the Administration's position on amnesty and relaxed security at ICE detention facilities,” said Gibson. “The majority of ICE ERO Officers are prohibited from making street arrests or enforcing United States immigration laws outside of the institutional (jail) setting. This has effectively created "amnesty through policy" for anyone illegally in the United States who has not been arrested by another agency for a criminal violation.”
The next portion ridicules Obama’s new policies of softening the immigration detention centers:
“ICE Detention Reforms have transformed into a detention system aimed at providing resort like living conditions to criminal aliens,” said Gibson. “Senior ICE leadership excluded ICE officers and field managers (the technical experts on ICE detention) from the development of these reforms, and instead solicited recommendations from special interest groups. The lack of technical expertise and field expertise has resulted in a priority of providing bingo nights, dance lessons and hanging plants to criminals, instead of addressing safe and responsible detention reforms for non-criminal individuals and families. Unlike any other agency in the nation, ICE officers will be prevented from searching detainees housed in ICE facilities allowing weapons, drugs and other contraband into detention centers putting detainees, ICE officers and contract guards at risk.”
“Morton, if he has a shred of integrity…should resign,” said Gibson.
The mere fact that 20 million illegal aliens walk, talk, work and live in the United States today—illustrates the fact that Napolitano and Morton fail on every level to do their jobs and fail the American people.
