Thomas Feeley, a retired Director with Immigration and Customs Enforcement said on Fox News on Tuesday that he left the agency after being fed up with the Biden administration’s border policies.
Feeley said that the crisis on the “wide open” southern border has gotten “so bad” that immigrants crossing over are being processed over the phone after entering the U.S.
“There’s a fine line between telling people we’re not breaking the law and not enforcing it,” Feeley said.
From Fox News:
Feeley revealed the administration directly hired non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to join DHS and ICE following Biden’s inauguration. The retiree let spill that some NGOs began cutting out field office directors and law enforcement officers in order to release migrants into the country – of which he claims to possess email evidence.
“I had a case who the guy was a convicted arsonist and they called me and said, ‘Hey, Mr. Feeley. One of our criteria is if the guy hasn’t been arrested in the past 10 years we need to let them go and we’d like you to release them.’ And I said, ‘I totally get what you’re saying, but… he’s been in prison for 12 years. That’s why he hasn’t been arrested.’ And the answer I got was, ‘We don’t really care,'” he said. “And I had to cut him loose.”
