Call for Accountability led by Tancredo:
Nicely job performance doesn’t live up to his name!?
This is definitely a step in the right direction! At least there are a few House members who seem to take their Constitutional responsibilities seriously.
Eight members of the House of Representatives, led by Rep. Tom Tancredo, R-Colo., and chairman of the House Immigration Reform Committee, are calling for the resignation of a Border Patrol official in Arizona who is alleged to have told his agents to stand down following the Minuteman Project vigil in April so that an increase in apprehensions of illegal aliens would not give the citizen group bragging rights.
The focus of attention is Michael Nicely, agent-in-charge of the Tucson Sector of the Border Patrol. He is accused by a dozen of his agents of ordering them to be less than aggressive in arrests beginning in early May.
One can only hope that this has some effect out in the field. This total nonsense of border officials (NOT the field officers, but their hack “superiors”) refusing to enforce the laws of the nation has been a festering sore on the body of the American republic. If we don;t have a border, then we don’t have a country!
