ICE agents rebel, say Trump ‘betrayed’
them by retaining Obama’s people

Washington Times, by Stephen Dinan

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/14/2017 8:21:06 PM

The country’s immigration enforcement officers launched a website Tuesday demanding President Trump do more to clean up their agency, saying he’s left the Obama team in place and it’s stymieing his goal of enforcing the laws on the books. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement supervisors in Philadelphia banned officers from wearing bullet proof vests during an operation in the dangerous “badlands” section in the city’s north, for fear of offending the immigrant community, the new website, jicreport.com, charges. Meanwhile officers in one Utah city are required to give city officials seven days’ heads-up before arresting anyone — and by the

Comments:
So why haven´t these Obama leaders been replaced??? The negligence in failing to replace the Obama hacks is outrageous! Who is stopping this? I´ve never seen so many people from a former administration held over. No wonder things aren´t getting done, Maybe this will shake things up. There is absolutely no excuse for this a year in from the election..

I would expect the rot from the leftards is deep and wide; and the uniparty leftards haven´t been and aren´t approving Trumnp´s appointments in any kind of a timely manner.

I thought we already had the answer to this question. Things are being help up mightily by the Senate, and all the GOP insiders who do not want PT to get things done.

I don´t know if this is true. But as a matter of principle, every Obama era hire, should have been fired right from the beginning.
The Dems were known to be sowing their treasonous spawn all throughout the Executive Branch. The only way to get a chance at rooting them out, is to fire them all.

The border patrol is having a difficult time finding qualified staff. They are currently over 2000 behind and at hiring at a slower rate than people are leaving.
Past neglect has created a situation where people going into law enforcement see ICE as far less than optimal. Changing that won´t happen overnight.
These agents should be trying to convince officers from other agencies to join them, solving the staffing problem, rather than complain that more people haven´t been let go.

I´m beginning to notice a trend. Good cop, bad cop. Trump has a tendency to blame his underlings for policies that are in his control. I´ll wait before I make a final judgement.

Brooklyn College doesn’t want

Brooklyn College is kowtowing to cop-hating students by directing officers who need a bathroom break to the broken-down facilities in a building on the far edge of campus. Amid a planned petition drive to ban cops from the taxpayer-funded campus, Donald Wenz, the school’s director of public safety, told the student newspaper The Excelsior that he’s trying to keep New York’s Finest out of sight. While Wenz said all of the school’s restrooms were technically open to cops, the college prefers they stick to those in the isolated West End Building, “rather than walking across either quad to use the

Country music singer Neal McCoy takes a jab at former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and others who protested the national anthem by taking a knee in his newest single he debuted last week. The song, “Take a Knee, My Ass (I Won’t Take a Knee),” was performed in front of a small audience on Oct. 8th and shared online as a Facebook Live video, which has since gone viral. (Snip) The song, which McCoy notes was written by a friend of his, cites the armed forces as a reason why he proudly stands for the national anthem. “I’ve

Ohio State Supreme Court Justice Bill O´Neill is something of an eccentric character. After repeated unsuccessful campaigns for Congress and for Ohio´s Supreme Court, the Democrat shocked everyone when he won his current seat in 2012. He knocked off a Republican incumbent despite promising to take no campaign contributions, in part thanks to backlash against a scorched-earth Republican campaign ad against him, accusing him of expressing sympathy for rapists. Speaking of which, O´Neill is in the news again today for his um...unorthodox response to the current controversy over alleged sexual harassment or assault by Minnesota Sen.

One year after losing the presidential race, 2016 Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton is still questioning the “legitimacy” of President Trump’s victory, accusing Republicans of voter suppression tactics in swing states and Russians of influencing votes through a “disinformation campaign.” “I think that there are lots of questions about its legitimacy,” Clinton said of the election during a video interview posted online Friday by the liberal Mother Jones website. Clinton lamented how “we don’t have a method for contesting” the election in the United States and called for an independent commission to “get to the bottom of what happened.” She suggested that she

The NFL has come out against House Republicans’ tax cut bill, putting the league out on a political limb even as it deals with the fallout from national anthem protests. Other big pro sports leagues are staying out of the fight, but a spokesman for the National Football League said teams don’t want to lose a special tax break that allows them to use tax-free bonds to build stadiums. The NFL says it deserves the break because new stadiums create jobs. “You can look around the country and see the economic development that’s generated from some of these stadiums,” Joe Lockhart, a former

One of the Clinton family’s most aggressive defenders lashed out overnight at a Democratic senator who said Bill Clinton should have resigned the presidency over his affair with Monica Lewinsky. “Ken Starr spent $70 million on a consensual b***job. Senate voted to keep POTUS WJC. But not enough for you @SenGillibrand? Over 20 yrs you took the Clintons’ endorsements, money, and seat. Hypocrite,” former Hillary Clinton adviser Philippe Reines tweeted late Thursday, at Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y. (Snip) The graphic jab came after Gillibrand leveled some of the highest-level criticism yet at former President Clinton. “Yes, I think that is

The deadly plague will never be eradicated, scientists have warned amid fears the situation in Madagascar is spiralling out of control. At least 171 people have died in the country off the coast of Africa´s ´worst outbreak in 50 years´ and 2,119 have been infected, World Health Organization figures show.

As the breaking story of Al Franken‘s lewd behavior toward Leeann Tweeden during a USO tour in 2006 was developing Thursday, MSNBC’s Capitol Hill Correspondent Kasie Hunt reported to viewers that Franken was “not actually groping” Tweeden in the famous photo that shook the political and media landscape.

How does she know this? What facts have been presented to support this? I

Washington’s Museum of the Bible will be opening its doors to visitors this weekend. Privately funded by Steve Green, the evangelical owner of the arts and crafts retail chain of Hobby Lobby, the $500 million museum will feature a huge array of artifacts both from Green’s private collection and from traveling exhibits from around the world. The museum, which its website says aims to engage visitors with the history, narrative, and impact of the Bible, is opening amid some controversy after Green settled a $3 million case involving smuggling artifacts earlier this year.

While editing ‘Vanity Fair’ in the ’80s and ’90s, Daily Beast founder Tina Brown confided some of her best dish to her now published diary, including this gem about Jackie Kennedy. Thursday, July 6, 1989 Quogue- I love how New York changes so completely in the summer. It’s my favorite time of year here, sitting at my wooden desk before the open window with the cool sea breeze. The August issue arrived by FedEx. The Jackie O cover story, and Michael Milken’s rise and fall by Marie, is a much more commercial combo than July. To generate some summer heat I assigned Ed Klein to do Jackie to mark her sixtieth birthday. I asked him because he was always going on about how she liked him when he edited The New York Times Magazine.

More than two dozen investigators have spent weeks scouring wine country trying to solve the mystery at the heart of the most destructive wildfires in California history: What caused the infernos that killed 43 people and destroyed more than 8,000 buildings? The answers will have wide-ranging ramifications for the region, which faces staggering losses and a challenging rebuilding effort. Losses from insured properties alone are expected to far exceed $1 billion, and the total bill for the fires will be still higher. Just fighting the fires cost $189 million, according to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection. Cal Fire is

In the longstanding liberal narrative about Bill Clinton and his scandals, the one pushed by Clinton courtiers and ratified in media coverage of his post-presidency, our 42nd president was only guilty of being a horndog, his affairs were nobody’s business but his family’s, and oral sex with Monica Lewinsky was a small thing that should never have put his presidency in peril. That narrative could not survive the current wave of outrage over male sexual misconduct. So now a new one may be forming for the age of Harvey Weinstein and Donald Trump.

(Snip) Says Trump: "Now that the three basketball players are out of China and saved from years in jail, LaVar Ball, the father of LiAngelo, is unaccepting of what I did for his son and that shoplifting is no big deal. I should have left them in jail!" Trump later tweeted: "Shoplifting is a very big deal in China, as it should be (5-10 years in jail), but not to father LaVar. Should have gotten his son out during my next trip to China instead. China told them why they were released. Very ungrateful!"
