Apparently Napolitano was shocked that ICE agents actually were involved in Customs investigations and enforcement. Apparently Napolitano was under the impression that ICE was ONLY an Immigration Enforcement agency. She thought that CBP, Customs Border Protection, handled all matters, including investigations, related to the Customs laws of the United States.
HQ insiders expect the entire Customs mission to be transferred to CBP in the future. Napolitano has vowed to make significant changes at both ICE and CBP.
How long will it be before ICE will have over 6,000 special agents earning in excess of $100,000 a year, tracking down illegal aliens within in the interior of the country?
Are illegals really that difficult to find that we have to pay civil servants six figure incomes to round them up for deportation?
Prior to joining the Obama Administration, Napolitano was mid-way through her second term as governor of the state of Arizona.
