Homeland Security Today – news and analysis – Obama Calls for Review of ICE Procedures

While Obama says he does understand ICE officers are public servants sworn to uphold the law, he believes immigration enforcement policy requires a “top-to-bottom” review to correct a broken system, an Obama campaign spokesperson told

“He has heard communities express concern that ICE enforcement activities have not exercised the necessary balance between respect for civil liberties and the manner in which they enforce the law,” said Moira Mack, deputy national press secretary for Obama for America.

Editor’s note: Security Debrief contributor Chris Battle has written about the increasing trend of members of Congress attacking ICE for enforcing the laws passed by Congress. His most recent column on this topic (“Frankenstein’s Law”)  can be read in U.S. News & World Report.
