ICE Agents Could Be Fired but DEA Agents Keep Their Jobs

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.

    The corruption of the government is the indicator of just how far into the American Experience the communist philosophies have encroached.
    Not only is a governing party acting totally outside the Constitution but are also actively and in open view committing treason against the country.
    The non-communists in government have been castrated by the fear of a communist inspired media, a selfish desire to retain the power and prestige of a DC politician and a constituency of low information voters who haven’t the ability to think outside the box. Therefore they do nothing while the mayhem continues to shred our Constitution, drive us into unrecoverable debt, destroy our economy and degrade our military capabilities to frat club status.

      As Clyde would say, take a bow, Cap, you said a mouthful right there. And very few of the useful idiots give a tinker’s damn what happens in the future.

    Agree capt. this is an indictment not only of current immorality in government but in the whole of the US and world.

    However, the issue at hand says if there is a law broken and those in charge do nothing to correct it within the law, then they are an accomplice. Everyone involved including this lady should Be brought up on charges. “What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas” is not acceptable.

    In addition the breeching of security is an extremely dangerous and pervasive federal crime. Many have gone to prison over the years on this problem alone. If Petraeus can be brought down and castigated on this then all should be. But then O and Hillary have wormed their way out of this so often, I guess others should have the same chance as well. I would put forward in that case that no one receive any retribution. Petraeus and others should have their rights restored and public apologies made to them if this behavior is allowed to continue on EVERY level of government from the lowest to the commander-in-chief.

    • Uriel says:

      I think I am SICK of the phrase prosecutorial discretion. It has NO place in following or carrying out the duties under current laws. If an act is illegal under current law, work to change the law. Until that happens regardless of position every government employee has to faithfully carry out to the letter of the law.

      Corporations are not government but are bound by law in the same way. The court is filled with cases on this with resulting consequences for actions. O has a right to send memos out to all employees under his command but even then has to answer if he places them in direct conflict with constitutional dictates.

      Those employees should not suffer harm either within “company” rules or in any way for refusing what they know is contrary to current law. He went on camera providing proof to the public of his disregard for the laws and eluding to consequences for those not following His policies. There by, totally overstepping his authority in doing so as that is tampering with and placing employees in harms way to be brought to court themselves, cases thrown out that might have citizens safety at risk (as we have seen), or placing those very employees lives and safety at risk.

      If our justice department was really just, these hearings wouldn’t be a waste of time, Hillary would be in prison and Petraeus wouldn’t be in trouble. He did less harm than Hillary and was treated as the sacrificial lamb to send a message.

      When you have a government that has to have laws prohibiting the politicians’ use of porn, and you have to tell the people in the justice dept not to solicit prostitutes, then something(s) are very wrong. We’re the ones in need of a reset button, not Russia.

      • Uriel says:

        True. But given a history of the number of loyal top brass and soldiers conveniently fired or retired over the last 3 years Petraeus was simply, if you ask me, a warning shot to all to tow a line or find themselves in a similar struggle. If I remember right he was critical of orders coming down.

        • Kathy says:

          Agreed, and I think he was in the chain of command when the attack on Benghazi happened. As I recall, he wasn’t going along with the story, so he had to be ‘removed’. What better way to do it, than turn him into a criminal, meanwhile Hillary walks away without a scratch.

          The hypocrisy, lying and corruption is neck-deep in our government and no department is untouched.

    It’s going to take a President Ted Cruz appointing Trey Gowdy as Attorney General to undo the evils done by this criminal enterprise called the Obama administration.
