The National Immigration and Customs Enforcement Council sees firsthand what illegal immigration is doing to our country, so when it announced the candidate it will be endorsing for president and why — it’s a wake-up call for all Americans.
The organization that represents 5,000 federal immigration officers and law enforcement support staff said Monday that it supports Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump and urged all Americans to do the same, according to The Hill.
Chris Crane, president of the National ICE Council, described its personnel as the “last line of defense for American communities” and lamented the poor level of support they had been receiving from the nation’s leaders, the Trump campaign reported.
“Our 5,000 officers, underfunded and undermanned, are responsible for enforcing immigration laws in a nation of 320 million people,” Crane said.
Crane said ICE officers come into contact some of the most dangerous people in the world, including cartel members, murder suspects, gang members, weapons traffickers and drug dealers, yet they are unable to make arrests or are “forced to release many of the most dangerous back into U.S. communities due to unscrupulous political agendas and corrupt leaders.”
Crane criticized President Barack Obama for his “unconstitutional executive orders” and Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton for embracing them.
“Our officers are prevented from enforcing the most basic immigration laws, including laws against illegal work, illegal entry, illegal overstay and also the public charge law,” he said, referring to a provision of immigration law that denies entry to aliens likely to end up on public assistance.
Crane described Clinton’s immigration plan — which he framed as “total amnesty plus open borders” — as the “most radical immigration agenda proposal in U.S. history,” one that would result in thousands of American deaths and an “uncontrollable flood of illegal immigrants across U.S. borders.”
Crane also said the federal government has lied to Americans about the U.S. immigration system and that Trump is the only candidate willing to put politics aside so we can achieve the goal of safety.
This would be bad news for Clinton any time, but it’s especially bad coming on the same day as the first presidential debate.
