“You should be aware that these groups have not worked with or consulted with ICE officers,” Crane wrote in his Monday letter to members of Congress. “In fact, their actions have undermined the safety of the country and law enforcement personnel. They do not represent the interests of your constituents, the law enforcement community, or the nation itself. They have demonstrated no evident concern for the constitutional rule of law."
"They are interested in power and money," he continued. "ICE officers are pleading with you to resist their well-financed pressure campaign and stand with American citizens and the immigration officers who put their own personal safety at risk each day to provide for public safety. The American public is fed up with rich individuals, corporations and special interests using money to control the legislative process.”
Crane added that these special interest organizations are clearly not interested in public safety because they have not joined him and other ICE agents in calling for an investigation of President Barack Obama’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and its non-enforcement directives ordering law enforcement to ignore specific laws. “If these groups were concerned about public safety, national security and the rule of law they would be joining our call for an investigation of the Department of Homeland Security,” Crane wrote.
“In fact, we are urging all lawmakers to demand an investigation of DHS before moving immigration bills. ICE officers are being ordered by DHS political appointees to ignore the law," he explained. "Violent criminal aliens are released every day from jails back into American communities. ICE Officers face disciplinary action for engaging in routine law enforcement actions."
