We wonder why when the U.S. Homeland Security Immigration and Customs Enforcement blokes have the smuggled antiquities, no arrests are announced. I think we just got the answer. A report has just surfaced (I read about it on Fox News, so it must be true) that details some events which would send a message to ICE agents in the field that they will be punished for doing their duty and enforcing the law. An ICE agent is facing punishment for arresting an illegal immigrant.
The unidentified agent could face a three-day suspension after he arrested a 35-year-old illegal immigrant from Mexico who had as many as 10 traffic violations. The agent was ordered by supervisors to release the individual because he was not a "priority target." When the officer balked, he was threatened with a three-day suspension and the illegal alien was let go.So what do we have to do to get ICE to treat culture criminals (looters and smugglers) as "priority targets"? Until we do, will we not see any ICE staff taking any action whatsoever against them?
