Homeland Security: Forget the Border, We Have Americans to Bust

It’s a rough life being an ICE agent, especially these days.
Ever since President Obama decided he was a king and used an executive order to grant amnesty by unilaterally enacting the congressionally rejected Dream Act, ICE agents have been in a sort of limbo.
No longer able to do their jobs rounding up young illegal immigrants, they have also been ordered to ignore calls from law enforcement in Arizona since the Supreme Court upheld that state’s law allowing officers to inquire into detainees’ immigration status.
And with the closing of nine Border Patrol stations, the ICE folks must be spending a lot of time playing Pac-Man.
Chris Crane, president of the National ICE Council, told Fox News, “Morale is in the toilet right now. Most of the guys out in the field are just in an uproar.”
Obama’s executive order calls for officials to use prosecutorial discretion to let young illegal immigrants stay in the country.
