The union representing immigration enforcement officers is urging Senate negotiators to include them in talks on an immigration reform package, complaining that their agents are apparently “not welcome” in the discussions even as business groups and “amnesty” advocates get a seat at the table.
The National Immigration and Customs Enforcement Council is speaking out after members say President Obama ignored a request dating back to Feb. 12 to be included in White House meetings. Now, the union is taking their case to the bipartisan “Gang of 8” senators who are working on drafting an immigration bill.
Union chief Chris Crane voiced concern in a letter to the senators that “the last four years have been a roller-coaster of ever-changing arrest authorities” that often force officers to violate the law.
