Veteran ICE Agent Faces Discipline for Arresting Illegal Alien
"An 18 year veteran Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agent is facing suspension for refusing to release a person he knew to be an illegal alien. The ICE agent and his partner were conducting surveillance on the vehicle of a known criminal alien. A subject got into the car but upon his arrest and detention turned out to not be the target of the investigation but still illegally within the United States," the Examiner writes. "The veteran agent decided to go forward with the detention of the subject even though the subject did not meet the criteria for deportation set by the Obama administration. Two supervisors ordered the veteran agent to let the subject go and a disagreement ensued that eventually led to a letter of proposed suspension for the agent over the incident."
