New Republic: ICE Officials Ignoring White House Mandate on Prosecutorial Discretion

Rating: 5 votes, 5.00 average.

TNR reports on what immigration lawyers widely know to be the case. ICE officers and attorneys nationwide are basically ignoring the August prosecutorial discretion memo ordering them not to pursue deportations against individuals on the low priority list. When is ICE Director Morton going to start firing people who disobey orders coming straight from the President? This is gross insubordination and surely grounds for termination. DHS Secretary Napolitano has indicated that cases already in the system would take three months to review, but new cases are not supposed to be pursued without reviewing them under the August memo first. And there are lots of indications that this is not happening.

    As Ruben Navarrete best out it in one of his articles, "The Morton memos isn't worth the paper is printed on". Given that it is still about prosecutorial discretion and is not in the nature or job description of ICE attorneys or Immigration judges not to deport someone this is no surprise. It merely points out what we knew that this was a failed attempt by the Obama administration to make them look good in the Latino community but their smoke screen has miserably failed as their own employees are not even following it...they are not required to!!! What is important to them and required is to keep the funding for the DHS at current levels therefore the numbers must hit their targets.
