Reverse Escorting

United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is a law enforcement agency under the United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS), with the responsibility to enforce immigration and customs laws. On June 24, 2013, conservative blogger Debbie Schlussel reported that ICE is engaged in “reverse escorting.” Instead of deporting people who are in the United States illegally, ICE transports them from the southern border to “sanctuary” churches and other locations in states such as Michigan, where illegals can wait until they qualify for amnesty.


Wikipedia: U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is a United States federal law enforcement agency under the United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS), responsible for identifying, investigating, and dismantling vulnerabilities regarding the nation’s border, economic, transportation, and infrastructure security. ICE has two primary components: Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) and Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO). Headquartered in Washington, D.C., ICE is charged with the investigation and enforcement of over 400 federal statutes within the United States, and maintains attachés at major U.S. embassies overseas.

ICE is led by a director, who is appointed at the sub-Cabinet level by the president of the United States, confirmed by the Senate, and reports directly to the Secretary of Homeland Security. ICE is the second largest criminal investigations agency in the U.S. government, following the FBI. The mission of ICE is to protect the United States and uphold public safety by enforcing immigration and customs laws.

EXCLUSIVE: Obama Sends ICE Agents to Southern Border to Pick Up “Youths” Awaiting Amnesty, Deliver Them to Northern “Sanctuary” Churches
By Debbie Schlussel
I’ve learned a new term created by the immigration amnesty bill currently before the U.S. Senate: “Reverse Escorting.” If you want a preview of what “border security” will entail under Senators Boobio’s and Corkbrain’s amnesty bill, you should become familiar with reverse escorting.

DebbieSchlussel.com has exclusively learned from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents based in Michigan–and confirmed from ICE agents around the country–that the Obama administration is spending gazillions of your money to “reverse escort” illegal aliens caught at the border into the interior of the United States to await amnesty, rather than deporting them. ICE agents from northern border and interior states are being sent to southern border states like Texas to pick up “juvenile” illegal aliens caught sneaking into the border. Instead of deporting them, taxpayers are funding the escort of the illegal aliens to interior and northern border states to seek sanctuary in churches and other such locations while awaiting the passage of amnesty. Again, the practice is called, “reverse escorting.”
