Union for Immigration Officers Protests Agency Leadership

WASHINGTON— Protesters descended upon the U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) headquarters on Wednesday, accusing the agency’s leadership of mismanaging its employees.

Felix Luciano, an ICE union president in California, accused the federal government of discriminating against veterans, women, people of color, and others.

“We’ve begged ICE leadership to intervene but they refuse to clean up the agency. If you’re a pregnant female, a veteran, a union representative, or a person of color, you’re a target of ICE managers,” he said in a statement...

Chris Crane, the President of the union representing ICE employees, cited the Office of Personnel Management’s annual survey, which shows that ICE workers rank their employer as one of the worst government agencies in terms of morale. “Union and non-union employees agree: ICE is a horrific place to work,” Crane said in a statement.

“Mission readiness falls apart when leadership fails, and morale hits rock bottom. “Discrimination, harassment and retaliation are a part of everyday life for ICE employees. Our managers act more like thugs than public servants entrusted to manage ICE’s critical public safety and national security missions,” Crane added.

On Yahoo: Immigration and Customs Enforcement Employees Call for End to Management Discrimination at Washington, D.C. Picket

Wednesday, February 10, 2016 - 5:18pm

WASHINGTON, Feb. 10, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The union representing employees at U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) staged a picket at ICE headquarters after filing allegations with the agency's Office of Inspector General demanding an investigation into the culture of discrimination, gross-mismanagement, and harassment that pervades the agency's leadership.

"We've begged ICE leadership to intervene but they refuse to clean up the agency," said Felix Luciano, a local president of the union in San Diego. "If you're a pregnant female, a veteran, a union representative, or person of color, you're a target of ICE managers."

Luciano said that, in San Diego alone, ICE employees have filed 18 separate discrimination suits against ICE and Department of Homeland Security supervisors. But the problems are wide-spread. Luciano is one of dozens of union members leading the protest in front of ICE Headquarters in Washington, D.C. today.

"Union and non-union employees agree: ICE is a horrific place to work," said Chris Crane, National President of the union representing ICE employees. The Office of Personnel Management's annual survey of federal employees ranked the agency third-worst in employee morale for all of government.

"Mission readiness falls apart when leadership fails, and morale hits rock bottom," Crane said. "Discrimination, harassment and retaliation are a part of everyday life for ICE employees. Our managers act more like thugs than public servants entrusted to manage ICE's critical public safety and national security missions."

Wednesday, February 10, 2016 - 5:06pm

On today’s program of Breitbart News Daily, Donald Trump’s Senior Policy Adviser, Stephen Miller, shared his never-before publicly discussed insights into Sen. Marco Rubio’s duplicitous conduct during his push to get the Gang of Eight bill through the Senate.

At that time, Miller served as the communications director for the man who organized opposition to the bill, Senator Sen. Jeff Sessions. Miller recalled how throughout the Gang of Eight push, Sen. Rubio “directly deceived” immigration law enforcement and the American people.

Miller recounted one story in particular about Rubio’s treatment of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) union president Chris Crane, who represents thousands of ICE officers. At the time, Crane slammed Rubio for having “directly misled law enforcement.” In his Congressional testimony, Crane said, “Never before have I seen such contempt for law enforcement officers as what I’ve seen from the Gang of Eight.”

For the first time ever, Stephen Miller explained exactly what Rubio did to Chris Crane and how he had deceived the nation’s ICE officers.
