ICE protests shame agency into action

ICE protest

ICE Agents and other ICE employees have been mistreated by managers in the El Paso Field Office and on April 23rd, they took their protests to the streets.  Complaints about management abuse up to this point seemed to have been completely ignored.  Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano and the Assistant Secretary for Immigration and Customs Enforcement John Morton have both been notified of the mismanagement, but neither has responded to the complaints.

ICE is evidently planning on sending a high level official to El Paso to meet with local managers, but this is the same official that the New York Times reported as having covered up a detainee death to avoid a media circus.  The union is demanding a full investigation by DHS Office of Inspector General (OIG) to find out just how widespread this mismanagement actually is.
