Video- ICE Union Head Testifies To Congress On Immigration Bill: Law Enforcement 'Purposely Excluded From Process'

By Susan Duclos

President of the National Immigration and Customs Enforcement Council Chris Crane testified before Congress Monday, harshly criticizing the process the so-called "Gang of 8" used in writing their immigration bill, including special interest groups in favor of amnesty for illegal aliens and "purposely excluding" law enforcement officers.

Via BizPac:

Crane told the Judiciary Committee:
Lawmaking in our nation has indeed taken a strange twist. Senators invite illegal aliens to testify before Congress…but American citizens working as law enforcement officers within our nation’s broken immigration system are purposely excluded from the process and prohibited from providing input.
Suffice it to say, following the Boston terrorist attack, I was appalled to hear the Gang of Eight telling America that its legislation was what American law enforcement needs.
Crane criticized President Obama and Congress for choosing a path of legalization for illegals rather than allowing immigration agents to crackdown on enforcement.

“Unbelievably, [this bill] gives far greater authority to the president and secretary of DHS. Exactly the opposite of what our country needs to create a consistent and effective immigration system,” Crane concluded.


To paraphrase one portion of his statement: How dare the "gang of 8" tell Americans this immigration bill is what law enforcement needs without any input whatsoever from that very same law enforcement.
