Dudes and dudettes…here’s a major story that once again has been ignored by the mainstream media, of course! After all, we know what Chris Crane had to say doesn’t fit their never-ending agenda, especially when it comes to illegal immigration and the powers that be that have tied their hands in more ways than one at every turn in the road! Hells Bells, they’ve been neutered when it comes to doing to their jobs and enforcing the laws we have on the books now! – Dear Leader is more than satisfied, his agenda fulfilled!

Here’s the report…you can read this in full here:

Chris Crane, president of the National Immigration and Customs Enforcement Council 118, made a number of stunning revelations during his testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday — and he’s begging Congress for help. The ICE union boss argued that agents are no longer allowed to arrest illegal aliens solely for illegal entry or expired visas and morale is at an all-time low.

Most Americans would be shocked to find out that immigration agents are regularly “prohibited from enforcing the two most fundamental sections of United States immigration law,” he said. Instead, the administration has ordered that only illegals charged or convicted of “very serious criminal offenses” may be arrested or charged by ICE agents and officers.

“In fact, under current policy individuals legally in the United States must now be convicted of 3 or more criminal misdemeanors before ICE agents are permitted to charge or arrest the illegal alien for illegal entry or overstaying a visa,” he added. That is unless the misdemeanors involve assault, sexual abuse or drug trafficking.

Even more shocking, Crane said ICE agents or officers who witness a violation of immigration law are prohibited from making arrests and even from asking questions “under the threat of disciplinary action.”

Citing a recent morale survey disseminated throughout federal agencies, Crane said ICE ranks 279 out of 291 in employee morale and job satisfaction. He has previously asked the Obama administration to help address the plummeting morale and dissatisfaction among ICE agents.

Meanwhile, the Obama administration is continually making it nearly impossible for agents to enforce federal immigration law because they allow special interests groups to influence policy, Crane explained.

“The day-to day duties of ICE agents and officers often seem in conflict with the law as ICE officers are prohibited from enforcing many laws enacted by Congress; laws they took an oath to enforce,” he said. “ICE is now guided in large part by influences of powerful special interest groups that advocate on behalf of illegal aliens.”

Crane continued: “These influences have in large part eroded the order, stability and effectiveness of the agency, creating confusion among 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.”



All of these restrictions being placed on ICE employees has put them in increased danger and the agency has seen assaults against ICE officers and agents continue to rise as “ICE arrestees become increasingly more violent and criminal in nature.”

You may be surprised to know that ICE agents are also prohibited from carrying life saving protective equipment like Tasers while on duty. Crane said ICE won’t approve the equipment due to “political reasons.”

“Death or serious injury to ICE officers and agents appears more acceptable to ICE, DHS and administration leadership than the public complaints that would be lodged by special interest groups,” he added.

Crane closed with this:

“In closing, while deeply concerned by the actions of our agency, as well as the current state and future of immigration enforcement, we are optimistic that all of these matters can be resolved with the assistance of members of Congress.

Only time will tell if lawmakers will answer the repeated pleas for help. Nearly a dozen immigration agents have sued the Obama administration for the right to enforce immigration law.

Just as a side note, despite being AFL-CIO affiliates, the union representing ICE agents has been shunned by AFL-CIO President Richard Trumpka and shut out of the development of immigration policy with the union and the Obama administration. The ICE agents union reportedly made multiple attempts to contact Trumpka’s top advisors to resolve the situation but have been ignored.

    BT, it has come to this: just open the damn border and let everybody in.

    It is CLEAR that the border is indeed technically wide open. It’s all for votes—-it’s all to make this country a complete socialist dictatorship with O and whichever Dem follows him forever in power, that is, unless the Constitution is changed yet again to allow O to stay prez, which I believe can happen.

    Illegal Mexicans, Chinese, radical Muslims, and everyone else who cares to is already using the southern border to come in. What’s amazing is that we allow ourselves to be invaded—-and make no mistake, this is an invasion. These people, like our Dear Leader, hate Western culture and ideals so they are destroying it from within and our own government is in collusion.

    Communists, socialists, Marxists, et al, have never and will never believe in the concept of true freedom of the middle class, the proletariat, the Everyday Joe, and so this is easy for them to do. There are also 300 million+ of us to control. What the left couldn’t give us because we didn’t want it (read: food stamps, Section 8 housing, government healthcare) cannot be used against us. So, we “cling to [our] guns and religion” and that is something our current administration, and about half of the people here, legally or illegally, cannot abide.

    The only ones who would have stood their ground during a more militaristic invasion would have been the citizen gun owners but now they’re not a problem because that invasion was unnecessary. However, those same citizens have awakened and so this is another reason why Feds wish to take the guns. It’s all part of the implementation.

    Yes, I’m rambling and this post hasn’t been deeply thought out but I believe I’m onto something, even though it’s nothing new.

      You’re not rambling on at all! Each and every point you made hits the nail on the head with the first whack…and then some!

      What infuriates me the most about all of this is the silence from the msm…they all make me sick! – Just as an example is today, on and on they go about the cruise ship that’s been without power…for days now! Seems to me they should have the time to slip in other news too…but, NOOOO…we can’t have that! – Some things never change…we’re fracked!

        Btw… called Ted Cruz’s office today in Washington to thank him for standing up and fighting the good fight when others in our party cower in the corner. They were so grateful that I would take time to call as they informed me they are mostly receiving nothing but hate calls and mail.

          Btw…I’m glad at least fourty-one of the senators on the ‘R’ of the aisle stopped Hagel from being confirmed today…for now.

          (0)
          • YEAH!!! But did you hear stinking Lindsey Graham say today that he was sure they could get Hagel nominated. Whats up with Graham.

            Btw… Apparently Graham and McShame are f–k buddies… what say you???

            (0)
          • Yeah….I heard about that, as well as McRINO and Kelly Ayotte having the same sentiments too.

            …I’m so sick of them. I swear Paul, nothing changes. There’s supposedly a devasting video of Hagel out there that’s being hidden under wraps that has to do with Hagel speaking for money supporting Hamas…or something like that.

            Sorry if this is jumbled up…just hope you get my meaning here.

            I bet Reid got has assed kicked everyday when he was in high school and now he has little man syndrome.

However, it absolutely blew my mind when she started telling me what a great job Obama was doing for our country.

            How in hell can people not see what a disaster this president is along with his socialist policies that trample our freedoms and his beliefs towards the Constitution as just an old worn out piece of paper.

People such as you speak of don’t bother to take the time to do any research on their own, let alone have no curiosity to just why prices are going sky high in every realm of our lives. – I give up on having hope for the masses when it comes to seeing the big picture for what it really is. – Reality should be kicking their a$$es sideways by now…but it isn’t registering to the brain-dead!

    • What Samuel Betances left out is what happened to White Europeans when they wandered into Tribal Territory and came across some Immigration Enforcement Warriors (IEW) These Pilgrims didn’t get the chance to show their Immigration status because their throats were unceremoniously cut and their scalps hung from lodge Poles.

      I am so sick of the American Indian being made out to be these peaceful dope smoking hippies living in commune with nature and each other. And then stabbed in the back while the pumpkin pie was being served during thanksgiving dinner by the evil White man.

      They were a tribal warrior culture that fought incessant wars over their territory, and the only immigration policy they had was kill on sight, and slave raiding from other tribes.

      But Samuel Betances sure knows how to twist a good story

  11. THE SELL OUT OF AMERICA by the Gang of Eight and our Oath Violating Elected Officials:

    Why would the federal government not uphold the laws that are already on the books as federal law? Why would they allow millions to break our laws, break into our country in violation of those laws and do damage to our citizens. Isn’t this in violation of their Oath of Office they take? Isn’t this a form of treason? 600 thousand illegal aliens in Arizona and 17% of those have Felony convictions. Sounds to me like this administration supports law breakers over citizen’s rights to be protected.

    Could the breaking of our laws and complete support of this invasion of law breakers get any more blatant than with this current administration? The total disregard of protecting our sovereignty, our borders and our citizens simply and utterly amazes me.

    The President and Mr. Holder works for WE THE PEOPLE, the legal residents and citizens of this Republic, not criminal invaders. Enough is enough.

    This administration is aiding and abetting, inciting criminal behavior and obstruction of justice, and of course with the help of the Gang of Eight now.

    Contact Sen. John McCain and U.S. Reps Jeff Flake demand they stand up for a secure America and the rule of law.

    What part of “illegal” do they not get? When Arizona’s senior senator along with the long time Amnesty pushing Senator Jeff Flake and their open border allies released their plan to push amnesty, again, millions of illegal aliens beamed with pleasure at the idea of gaining legal status by rewarding them with their law breaking goal and border crossings increased by thousands daily.

    To those who have taken the Oath, Remember the Oath! Remember that those who make laws contrary to the Constitution, Those who enforce laws contrary to the Constitution, And those who give orders contrary to the Constitution, are domestic enemies of the Constitution! It doesn’t take a Judge or a lawyer to know the difference and in fact they seem to least understand it!

    “I DO SOLEMNLY SWEAR THAT I WILL SUPPORT AND DEFEND THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES AGAINST ALL ENEMIES, FOREIGN AND DOMESTIC; THAT I WILL BEAR TRUE FAITH AND ALLEGIANCE TO THE SAME; …….. SO HELP ME GOD.”

    All laws which are repugnant to the Constitution are null and void.” Marbury vs. Madison, 5 US (2 Cranch) 137, 164, 176. (1803)

    “Where rights secured by the Constitution are involved, there can be no rule making or legislation which would abrogate them.” Miranda vs. Arizona, 384 U.S. 436, 491.

    “An unconstitutional act is not law; it confers no rights; it imposes no duties; it affords no protection; it creates no office; it is in legal contemplation, as inoperative as though it had never been passed.” Norton vs. Shelby County, 118 US 425, 442.

    There is currently a battle raging in this country that will determine whether our nation enforces its immigration laws and secures its borders or becomes victim of its enemies. We are a Nation built upon the “Rule of Law” and either we stand up for the principles that our Founding Fathers gave us to ensure lasting Liberty, enshrined in a Constitution that protects those liberties or we destroy all that is sacred and the end result will be a nation who commits suicide. Illegal immigration is the Trojan Horse in America; we must secure our borders and enforces our laws. Our nation depends on it.

    “Drop in crime coincides with exodus of illegal immigrants” Phoenix Business Journal – by Mike Sunnucks

    Statement by Phoenix Law Enforcement Association: “Since SB1070, Phoenix has experienced a 30-year low crime rate. When hard-working rank-and-file Phoenix Police Officers were given access to the tool of Phoenix Law Enforcement Association; “because of SB1070 Phoenix has a 30 year low in crime, SB1070, the deterrence factor this legislation brought about was clearly instrumental in our unprecedented drop in crime. … without a single civil rights, racial profiling, or biased policing complaint. To ignore the positive impact of SB1070 in the City of Phoenix is to ignore the huge elephant in the middle of the room.”

    23 Million Unemployed Americans Shouldn’t Have to Compete for Jobs with Today’s Illegal Aliens Crime Victims of Illegal Aliens; everyone should be aware.

    Congressman Steve King (R-Iowa) on the floor of the House Of Representatives stated on July 1, 2006, ‘Illegal aliens kill 25 Americans daily, seven days a week, 365 days a year*****…that adds up to 9,125 dead Americans every year.’ This is a 9/11 every four months and more Americans than we’ve lost fighting terrorist in the Gulf and Iraqi Wars combined.” —Mary Williams, Director of Protect Our Citizens

    Illegal aliens kill Americans either by drunk driving crashes or outright MURDER ! Yet it goes on and on and on…..Those that rule are complicit in these deaths and crimes…….

    ALL ILLEGAL ALIENS MUST BE DEPORTED TO RE-ESTABLISH COMMON SENSE IN AMERICA; ONE TRAFFIC STOP AT A TIME, ENFORCEMENT ACTUALLY WORKS. WE DON’T HAVE A BROKEN IMMIGRATION SYSTEM AS MUCH AS WE HAVE BROKEN POLITICIANS.

    The below web site shows photo’s and what happened to many citizens.

    http://www.fncic-voiacm.org/victims.php

    Dept of Justice sites Arizona’s crime has declined 14% while the rest of the nation has dropped 5% in the same period of time.

    Illegal is not a race, it is a crime. SB1070 simply codifies federal law into state law making enforcement clear and r emoving illegal sanctuary policies from all Arizona cities. Sanctuary policies are actually illegal under federal law (8 USC 1644 & 1373) and now Arizona law SB1070. Yet these illegal sanctuary policies exist in most major cities all over the United States.

    Listening to the media or open border crowd you would think Arizona made illegal, illegal, when actually it was already illegal and that Arizona’s law to enforce the law was UnConstitutional!

    When do we stand up for Americans and the rule of law, if not now, when? We are a nation of laws, a Constitutional Republic.

    It is a crime to enter or remain in the U.S. in violation of federal law. States have always had inherent authority to enforce immigration laws and has failed or refused to do so.

    Well here in Arizona we are going to enforce our laws, protect our citizens and stand firmly behind the rule of law.

    Obama LIED: If law enforcement could not stop someone before this law SB1070, they cannot stop them now. If you did not have to carry ID before this law, you don’t have to carry ID under this new law. We did not expand law enforcement authority or require any “new” requirements or put new conditions on citizens. We simply took the handcuffs off from law enforcement and allow them to enforce our immigration laws, like any other law. Enforcement actually works, Arizona has proven it.

    My heart goes out to many nations and people that struggle under dire circumstances, but I also recognize my duty to God, Family, and Country and will honor that obligation. I do not intend to attend another funeral of a citizen or police officer killed by an illegal alien knowing that I did not do all I can to prevent it.

    We are a Nation of Laws. We must have the courage – the fortitude – to enforce, with compassion but without apology, those laws that protect the integrity of our borders and the rights of our lawful citizens.

    I will do all I can to protect American jobs.

    I will do all I can to protect the taxpayers of this state and nation.

    I will do all I can to defend the Rule of Law.

    I will do all I can to protect the citizens of this Republic.

    I will not apologize for standing up for America and Americans.

    “Domestic Terrorism”: Illegal aliens in our country that assault, kill, and intimidate American citizens.

    STATES INHERENT AUTHORITY AND STATES INHERENT RIGHTS UNDER THE CONSTITUTION: In 2011 the Supreme Court upheld Arizona’s Legal Workforce Act and in 2012 the Supreme Court held SB1070 to be legal and Constitutional and March of 2013 had oral arguments on Proposition 200 all of which I authored that protects the rule of law, citizens of the United States and the integrity of our elections and taxpayer paid benefits.

    Congress has firmly established that there is a significant public interest in the effective enforcement of immigration law. “The statutory law of the United States is part of the law of each state just as if it were written into state statutory law.” States do not need a 287g, IGA, MOU or a permission slip to arrest illegal aliens!!!!

    Unsanctioned entry into the United States is a crime, over staying one’s VISA is a crime.

    Illegals are responsible for more deaths in the U.S. each year than we lost at Pearl Harbor, in the 9-11 attack and in the Iraq war to date. Where is the outrage of our government? According to a Congressional report as many as 9,000 killed each year in the U.S. by illegal aliens; 25 per day, 12 by stabbings and shootings and 13 a day by DUI and other vehicular crimes. We have become the home-invasion, car-jacking, identity-theft capital of the Nation.

    FREE: The taxpayer burden is in the billions of dollars, Schooling, housing, medical, food stamps, along with jobs that Americans use to do, social security benefits, UnConstitutional Citizenship by birth to non-Americans, subsidized mortgages, drug trafficking, gangs, identity-theft, tax evasion, and demanding even more!

    In 2003, 77 border hospitals filed for bankruptcy, violent illegal alien gangs plague our cities and criminal justice cost sore, our education system is overwhelmed. What does it take for our elected officials to recognize and respond to the damage to this nation?

    With an estimated 23 million illegal aliens living in the United States, this “amnesty on the installment plan” robs U.S. citizens of security, opens the flood gates of socialist entitlement programs and threatens the American way of life.

    While illegals have been taking jobs away from Americans and depressing wages of other jobs, they have also been taking advantage of our services.

    In Arizona, it is estimated that to educate, medicate and incarcerate illegals runs taxpayers more than $2.6 billion dollars annually. Amnesty will cause this cost of social programs to triple for the taxpayer. At least 500,000 illegal aliens call Arizona home, according to recent estimates.

    According to the Heritage Foundation it will cost the taxpayers $2.9 Trillion to give Amnesty to illegal aliens; some of Washington’s elite want to brush aside this cost and the will of the people.

    Instead of worrying about jobs for law breakers who take jobs from Americans, Just Maybe, McCain, Flake and the gang of eight should consider the impact of illegal immigration on U.S. citizens, the country’s economy and social impact.

    Far from the typical portrayal of illegal aliens poor hard working folks just seeking a better way, illegals are responsible for a significant amount of crime and cost in this country. More than 4,000 murder warrants from border states of suspects who are believed to have fled to Mexico over 100 in Maricopa County Jail alone on murder charges. 23 million Americans out of work; They take jobs away and depress wages for Americans seeking entry into the workforce.

    Most public opinion polls show Americans are fed up with “illegal” immigration, with 80-plus percent supporting the use of local law enforcement to enforce immigration laws and similar number of people opposing amnesty.

    The McCain-Flake proposal contains fatal flaws while at the same time demands the common person put aside common sense.

    And with the hope of amnesty on the horizon, illegal crossings have skyrocketed. What is left to dissuade another 23 million illegal aliens from making the trek across our desert if they know that eventually they can earn U.S. citizenship and all the benefits that accompany it for a small cost or no cost?

    And instead of demanding enforcement of immigration laws that are on the books, McCain, Flake, the gang of eight and others give the government the right to abdicate its sole authority to keep our borders secure. Cheap labor, cheap votes and perhaps cheap baptisms brings unlikely allies together on this issue, while Americans pay the price.

    Enough is Enough:
