“Ice Agent Suspended for Arresting Illegal Alien”

Michael Cutler, CAPS, August 9, 2012

Generally people get into trouble on their jobs when they refuse to do what they are paid to do.  However, on August 2, 2012 Fox News ran a story titled “ICE Agent Faces Suspension For Arresting Illegal Alien.” Here we have the incredible story about an employee of ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) who is in trouble for doing his job!

According to published reports about this deplorable case, the agent, who has worked for ICE for 18 years and has also served in the United States military, ran afoul of his superiors at ICE when he participated in a surveillance of a vehicle believed to be owned by a criminal alien who was to be arrested so that he could be deported (removed) from the United States.  The idea was to hopefully find the wanted alien when he showed up to drive his vehicle.

During the course of the surveillance an individual entered the vehicle.  He was stopped by the agents and it was subsequently determined that the driver of the vehicle was not the criminal alien for whom they were searching but a 35 year old citizen of Mexico who was an alien illegally present in the United States.

{snip} The illegal alien in this case has a demonstrable relationship with a wanted criminal alien (he was driving the car that was purportedly owned by that criminal alien).  Furthermore, he reportedly had been stopped on ten previous occasions for committing various motor vehicle law violations including driving without a license. Because motor vehicle law violations are not considered “serious crimes,” this alien did not meet the definition of “criminal alien.”

Purportedly the ICE agent in question had an argument with his superiors over their orders to release the alien because he did not meet the Obama administration’s criteria for arresting illegal aliens.  Given all of the previously noted circumstances, the agent wanted an immigration judge make the decision.  Because of this disagreement, that agent now faces a 3-day suspension and will face the loss of his job if he ever again violates the President’s “prosecutorial discretion.”  Meanwhile the illegal alien in question was allowed to simply go on his merry way proving to him and illegal aliens across our country and aspiring illegal aliens around the world, that aliens may run our nation’s borders, violate other immigration laws and face absolutely no consequences.  In fact, under current policies about to implemented by the Obama administration, in the name of “prosecutorial discretion” aliens can ultimately expect to be rewarded for running our borders and violating various laws including our immigration laws along with other laws that are supposed to protect innocent lives.

    There is not even the shadow of pretense now. Pandering to illegal aliens is out in the open and will remain a clear and present danger to all of us until we elect someone who cares more for the American people that he/she does rather than surrendering to foreign interests in the hopes of furthering their own.

    If really true, do we still need a border?

  • haroldcrews

    ‘America’ is dead to me.  It’s just a meaningless word used to manipulate the ignorant and gullible.  It’s a false idol.

    •  100% agreement.  The “United States” exists in name only.  God help us all.

      I pray Harold that Romney will cure some of the ills that we have ! It is time to close our southern  border and throw these roaches out!

      But White America, or what’s left of it, survives as long as we continue to speak up.

      • It’s not about “White America,” it’s about upholding the laws of the land.  I could care less what color you are or what religion you are, as long as you are a legal citizen and do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

    Why wasn’t the ICE agent arrested and executed?

    ICE Agent Faces Suspension For Arresting Illegal Alien.

    America’s elected officials don’t care.  They just don’t care.

    Aileen and her husband Zach were traveling along Interstate 25 in San Miguel County, N.M., when a car driven by Ramon Hernandez, 43, collided with their vehicle. Aileen Smith suffered severe contusions to her midsection as well as a broken sternum. She was seven months pregnant with the couple’s first child.

    But the injuries to the unborn child were too severe and he died only minutes after being delivered. The baby died from a massive head injury and blood on the brain, according to a coroner’s report.

    They were on the way to a baby shower for Aileen when they were struck by Hernandez. The funeral was held only two days before Aileen’s 26th birthday.

    Hernandez – an illegal alien from Mexico – has been charged with homicide by vehicle DUI.  According to the New Mexico authorities, Hernandez was convicted of DUI twice in 2000, once in 2003 and once again in 2004. He was also driving on a revoked license at the time of the crash due to multiple unpaid traffic tickets. He has pleaded not guilty.


    Congratulations Lefties: 

    This is your legacy and that of obama, holder, napolitano, pelosi and ICE authorities who let foreign criminals roam free: the deaths of innocents at the hands of savages. This is the unnecessary pain and suffering you’ve unleashed on us, a formerly beautiful, orderly, well-maintained White country…now a decomposing cesspool of rampant crime, drunk driving and lawlessness.  

    All because you of leftists.

       The men and women who allow things like this to happen to real American’s like this young women and her baby have no shame, no morals, and no soul.

      I hope the traitors within our government face JUSTICE one day for the harm and destruction they have caused this country, because of their refusal to enforce the law.  Their punishment should be swift and unforgiving!

    • It’s not about left or right – that’s an illusion fostered by the multi-billionaire elite that run this country and own BOTH parties.  At the highest levels of power, they are Satanists.

        George Wallace was NOT wrong when he said “There’s not a dime’s worth of difference between the two parties!!”

        They’re both taking us down the same Road to Hell — the Republicans a bit slower!!


        PS:  I’m voting for Gary Johnson.

    If “motor vehicle law violations are not considered serious crimes”, then I suppose motor vehicle accident deaths are not considered serious deaths.

  • JackKrak

    How much longer before they just go ahead and replace border control points with welcome stations with free cash sitting on tables?

  • The__Bobster

    ICE is not bothering to go after squat monster invaders anymore because they say they don’t have the funding.  But somehow they have money for their new mission: tracking down American perverts.


  • ageofknowledge

    If they are crossing the border illegally, they are the “bad guys.”

  • And the destruction of America continues by the multi-billionaires that own both parties here.
