Enforcement Declines As ICE's Priorities Are Also Ignored
The ongoing Obama Regime Administrative Amnesty accelerates as the one-time priorities of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) are also ignored. Previously deported illegal aliens were one of John Morton's priorities. Not so much anymore as the mother of a DREAMer who has been previously deported got amnesty.

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano responded on Tuesday to allegations that the agency targeted an undocumented immigrant's family as retribution for her activism.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers detained the mother and brother of Erika Andiola, who is active in the immigrant rights movement and the founder of activism group DRM Capitol, on Jan. 10. The mother, Maria Arreola, and brother, Heriberto Andiola Arreola, were quickly released from custody after an outcry from advocacy groups.
Napolitano told Phoenix NBC affiliate KPNX that Maria Arreola was taken in because of a previous deportation in 1998 and traffic arrest last year. Maria Arreola was therefore considered a priority case, she said...
Barbara Gonzalez, a spokeswoman for the agency, said in a statement at the time that ICE would use prosecutorial discretion in the case and likely would not pursue deportation.
"Although one individual had been previously removed from the country, an initial review of these cases revealed that certain factors outlined in ICE’s prosecutorial discretion policy appear to be present and merit an exercise of discretion," she said. "A fuller review of the cases is currently on-going. ICE exercises prosecutorial discretion on a case-by-case basis, considering the totality of the circumstances in an individual case."
It is compelling evidence that even the so-called priorities of the Regime are not that, but merely boob-bait-for-bubbas, designed to hide the Obama Regime Administrative Amnesty behind a cloud of lies.
