An ICE agent, as yet unidentified, could face a three-day suspension because he arrested a 35-year-old illegal immigrant from Mexican who had at least 10 traffic violations.
According to Fox News,
The agent was ordered by supervisors to release the individual because he was not a “priority target.” When the officer balked, he was threatened with a three-day suspension and the illegal alien was let go.
“The actions that it appears were taken by your agency send a message to agents in the field that they will be punished for doing their duty and enforcing the law,” Sessions wrote in an letter to ICE Director John Morton and obtained exclusively by Fox News.
A spokesperson for the Newark Police Dept. told Fox News that had an American citizen been stopped under the same circumstances – they would have been jailed. Sessions said that is a troubling revelation.
Sen. Sessions, who took on Leon Panetta’s unconstitutional view of the U.S. military and the authority of Congress, blasted the Immigration and Customs Enforcement,
“Federal law enforcement should certainly not be giving illegal aliens more preferential treatment that is afforded American citizens. Your agency’s apparent treatment of the criminal alien sends the troubling message that the demands of public safety are trumped by the desire for reduced deportations of those deemed ‘not presidential priorities.’”
If you are an American you can now be arrested for almost anything under the Dictator’s EOs, but if you are an illegal in this country you get off free, no jail time, no nothing. As Americans we should be mad as hell about this.
The usual question “why doesn’t Congress do something about this is once again a mystery. This is totally ridiculous that an ICE agent would be punished for doing his job.
