Concerned about the alleged “mistreatment” of Border Patrol and other Homeland Security employees who are trying to enforce immigration law, Republican senators want to know how may DHS employees have been disciplined over the last six years for refusing to comply with the Obama administration’s “prosecutorial discretion” policy. “We write regarding potential retaliation against Department of Homeland Security (DHS) personnel for upholding their oaths of office and faithfully discharging the duties of the offices in which they serve,” eight Republicans said in a March 31 letter sent to DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson.
The letter is signed by Sen. Jeff Sessions (Ala.), chairman of the immigration subcommittee; along with Sens. David Vitter (La.), David Perdue (Ga.), Charles Grassley (Iowa), John Cornyn (Texas), Mike Lee (Utah), Ted Cruz (Texas) and Tom Tillis (N.C.).
Testifying before the oversight committee is Director Sarah Saldana, who says they could be terminated if they don’t follow O’s unconstitutional orders.

In contrast to the video above, DEA agents who had numerous sex parties in Columbia, paid for with taxpayer money, get to keep their jobs. In this video, lawmakers from both parties are questioning Michele Leonhart, an administrator at the DEA. The only punishment the agents will see is retraining – in other words, nothing.
Up is down and down is up. Violate laws and the Constitution, get off scott-free, but following laws on the books instead of O’s executive orders could get agents fired. Executive orders, which by the way, have been put on hold by a federal judge, whose orders are being ignored.
Our government has become so wretched and corrupt it is unrecognizable.
