ICE Union Head on Immigration Reform: 'Zero confidence any promises of future enforcement will be fulfilled'
    The head of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent union says that he has no confidence that the Obama administration would step up its border control efforts as part of any immigration reform agreement.
    Chris Crane, ICE officer and National ICE Council president representing 7,000 ICE agents, officers, and employees, expressed concern in a statement issued Friday that the "the immigration bill being crafted behind closed doors" by the bipartisan "Gang of Eight" senators "will be rushed to passage without proper public consideration and proper input from the law enforcement community."
    According to Crane, while big businesses and advocacy groups have been given a seat at the table by the White House and at "other secret meetings," the ICE union has been left out of the conversation.
    He added that ICE's "politically appointed leaders" --- Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and ICE Director John Morton --- "do not speak for us when it comes to enforcing the law" and that the pair have "repeatedly undermined the ability of our officers to enforce and protect the public safety."
