DHS ICE HSI Agents Send Protest Letter To Secretary
Friday, June 29, 2018
I get very serious when it comes to what homeland security is supposed to be about. We can push exactly that as a critical message at this time. It's directly related to Saturday's Families Belong Together protests.
A political agenda is negatively affecting our country's homeland security via ICE's current actions.
The Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) unit in Immigrations & Customs Enforcement (ICE) is one of the most impressive parts of the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
That 19 special agents in charge are speaking out is stupefying. That they wrote a letter to the DHS Secretary is extremely risky for each one of them.
These folks have nothing but courage. I'm proud as hell to call them former colleagues. They are speaking out about the work we were meant to be doing after 9/11. Their work is critical.
Take that to the streets. Take that to your legislators.
Details, from the article referenced above:
"In a letter sent last week, 19 special agents in charge at ICE’s Homeland Security Investigations unit said that ICE’s controversial detention and deportation policies have made it hard for them to conduct investigations into threats to national security, organized crime, narcotics smuggling and human trafficking.
“'HSI’s investigations have been perceived as targeting undocumented aliens, instead of the transnational criminal organizations that facilitate cross border crimes impacting our communities and national security,' the special agents in charge wrote in the previously unreported letter."
