H/T One Old Vet
Today’s One Old Vet Amnesty news compendium totals 30. In addition OOV carries a number of particularly important stories separately. Possibly the most significant was Claim: ICE is now being run by the illegal alien lobby linking to an Examiner.com story of February 7 2013 by Dave Gibson:
On Tuesday, Chris Crane, the 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.
