Acting ICE chief defends agents, scolds lawmakers for political rhetoric

Source: ABC News

In an interview with ABC News, the nation’s top immigration enforcement official scolded lawmakers for heated political rhetoric that he said put his agents’ safety at risk and declared that “everyone” should “take a deep breath,” an admonition that could apply to President Donald Trump as well as critics of his policies.

“We’re not Nazis,” he said in a wide-ranging interview this week, referencing comparisons from Democrats who've described migrant detention centers as “concentration camps.”

The plea by acting U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director Matthew Albence is likely to solicit pushback. Critics say his agency’s tactics have grown increasingly aggressive, including one incident in which ICE officers smashed the window of a car with a man sitting inside with his young children. He was dragged out and arrested, then deported. Agency officials said the force was justified because the man had previously been deported and had reentered the U.S. – a felony.

But Albence insists that not enough is being done to tell the side of the agents who are responsible for enforcing President Donald Trump's most controversial immigration policies.

1. I liked Aaron Rupar's characterization of this scumbucket:

Acting CBP commissioner Mark Morgan is basically a
bad WWE character. Here he is cutting a wrestling
promo at the border.”

3. Tell the side of the agents?! There is no rationale that mitigates in any frigging way to any

or to any extent the well documented, on-going heinously cruel behavior and acts being carried out by — the apparently neo-Nazi — ICE officers! F that! F off!
