Support for Trump dwindles among ICE officers

By Stephen Dinan     |     The Washington Times     |     Monday, March 11, 2019


ICE officers who endorsed President Trump in 2016 now say he has failed to follow through on his get-tough promises, saying catch-and-release of immigrants living illegally in the U.S. is not only still happening, but has gone into “overdrive.”

Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers say they’re being roped into such mundane tasks as opening the doors on vans to release immigrants already caught by Border Patrol agents. That’s dragging the officers from their usual duties of nabbing fugitives, or scouring local prisons and jails for immigrant criminals who lived illegally in the U.S. ready to be deported.

The shell game is all the more “ridiculous,” the officers said, because Border Patrol agents could fill out paperwork and open the doors themselves, but the agency’s leaders don’t want to be part of catch-and-release.

“Hundreds of man hours are wasted each day at a time of crisis on the border,” the leaders of the National ICE Council, the union that represents ICE officers, said in a letter sent directly to Mr. Trump on Monday.

If a political party does not have its foundation in the determination to advance a cause that is right and that is moral, then it is not a political party; it is merely a conspiracy to seize power.

Things that make you go Hmmmmmm.......

He hasn't followed through on his promises to protect our borders.

Surprised, anyone?
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

Absolutely!  That's exactly where all the anger should be directed!  Unless you look at it like I do. In that case, it still falls on the President because he should have told Judge Dana Sabraw to stick her opinion where the sun doesn't shine and to stay in her lane from now on!

Not when his party will not support him. And it will not.

Nuts.  No one in the GOP is standing in the way of Trump expediting asylum hearings.  Heck, he even campaigned on expediting the legalization of illegals.  He certainly can expedite the processing of their asylum cases.

It simply is a matter of thinking outside the box, which unfortunately is damn difficult for a President who embraces the Establishment.
