ICE budget hearing in front of House Committee on Appropriations

On April 15, 2015, the House Committee on Appropriations Subcommittee on Homeland Security held a budget hearing regarding Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). In regards to ICE agents being allowed to use their best judgement and discretion in the field to decide who to arrest, Representative Carter said the following to ICE Assistant Secretary Sarah Saldana at the 1:53:20 mark:

"Ok, then let them make those decisions, but don't let the president of the United States threaten their jobs, their pensions, and their lives if they don't do it the way he wants them to do it. That's the problem we've got with this system. It's none of his business how an ICE agent operates, unless he's operating outside the law."
