An immigration officer working in ICE’s Enforcement and Removal Operations division says “a significant portion” of officers’ times is now spent helping people determine eligibility for executive amnesty and reviewing cases rather than enforcing the law.

In an email a congressional office shared exclusively with Breitbart News on the condition of anonymity, an unnamed ERO supervisor highlights the irony of the Obama administration’s argument that ICE lacks resources to remove and detain people when so much of officers’ time is spent enacting the administration’s executive orders.

“I love how the Admin keeps parroting how we just don’t have the time or resources or manpower to remove everyone or to remove or keep the so called ‘non priorities’ in custody (we just did a big flush out of custody of mostly reinstatements of prior removals, repeat immigration violators and mostly traffic offenders/those not actually convicted of a significant crime that were in various stages of appeal or removal proceedings),” the ERO supervisor’s email reads.
