Testifying Wednesday on Capitol Hill before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Chris Crane, president of the union representing 7,000 Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers, explained how new Department of Homeland Security prosecutorial discretion policies only cause problems and further inhibit ICE agents from doing their jobs. Crane told a horrifying story about an illegal alien who killed a young child by driving over him four times in 2010. The man was driving without a license at the time and attempted to flee the scene. He still hasn't been deported. Crane also explained how ineligible illegals are taking advantage of President Obama's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals or "dreamers" program...from jail.
"ICE's new policies are neither smart nor effective."
"According to ICE’s new prosecutorial discretion policies, driving without a license is just another traffic offense and because of that ICE agents can’t arrest illegal aliens without licenses unless they have already potentially injured someone.”
