Claim: ICE Is Being Run by the Illegal Alien Lobby

EXAMINER | On Tuesday, Chris Crane, the president of the union representing more than 7,600 rank-and-file ICE agents, told the House Judiciary Committee how the agency is “now guided in large part by the influences of powerful special interest groups that advocate on behalf of illegal aliens.”

Crane testified:

These influences have in large part eroded the order, stability and effectiveness of the agency, creating confusion among all 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.

Most Americans would be surprised to know that immigration agents are regularly restricted from enforcing the two most fundamental sections of United States immigration law…

This is not the first time Crane and the agents he represents have found themselves at-odds with the Obama administration.
