Rebranding at ICE meant to soften immigration enforcement agency's image

By Ed O'Keefe

By Andrew Becker for The Washington Post:

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement will realign its duties to promote criminal investigations over immigrant deportation, officials have announced.
By streamlining and renaming several offices, officials hope to highlight the agency's counterterrorism, money laundering and other complex criminal investigations and in the process "re-brand" ICE, turning the public -- and political -- spotlight away from its immigration work.
ICE Assistant Secretary John Morton said that immigration enforcement remains a top priority but that the intention of the image makeover is to show the agency's "true face."

Morton is a fool and a disgrace. I'm not interested in his "rebranding"; I'm interested in his enforcement of our immigration laws. ICE is only one of many agencies who interconnect in counter-terroism activities. That is not their sole funtion. What he is effectively saying is that he will be trying to hide the fact that he won't enforce the law.

This is the clown who said that he may refuse to process illegal aliens sent to him by Arizona law enforcement officials.

He has already eliminated 50 detention facilities. And insists immigration policy should be playing the dangerous game of illegal alien "catch and release."

Here are some of this idiots ideas on cracking down on illegal aliens, that the ICE agency will implement in the next 30 days:

-- "Softening" the physical appearance of privately contracted detention facilities with "hanging plants."

- Giving illegal alien detainees e-mail access and free Internet-based phone service.

- Abandoning lockdowns, lights-out, visitor screening and detention uniform requirements.

- Serving fresh veggies and continental breakfast and providing Bingo sessions, arts and crafts classes, and, yes, movie nights.

Why not give them bonus points and free hotel rooms when they cross the border successfully more that 100 times - Idiots
