ICE Union Leaders call for Director to end disciplinary actions taken against ICE Agents and Officers for enforcing federal laws
ICE Union leadership has issued a national petition asking Americans to support ICE Agents and Officers nationwide who are now under threat of disciplinary action, up to and including the loss of their jobs and retirements, simply for attempting to enforce federal laws. The Administration’s claims that ICE agents would have more “discretion” under the President’s new immigration policies were false. ICE agents are now under orders to ignore the law as well as threats to public safety and fraud; those officers who refuse to follow the Administration’s unlawful orders by making arrests will be disciplined and lose their jobs, as well as the ability to support their families. The National ICE Council representing approximately 7,200 ICE Agents, Officers and employees were the first to sign the petition on behalf of those that they represent in hopes that through public support ICE, DHS and the Administration can be convinced to take a more responsible approach to law enforcement and cease their collective efforts to devastate and demoralize federal law enforcement officers and their families.
