President Obama wants what he wants when he wants it. When a federal judge issued an injunction forbidding him to go ahead with his unconstitutional amnesty plans, a ticked off, defiant president showed up at Florida International University in Miami. In an MSNBC/ Telemundo townhall hosted by Jose Diaz-Balart in February 2015, the President warned ICE officials and border patrol agents there “will be consequences” for those who do not obey his orders.
DICE to remove the word ‘alien’) Sarah Saldaña took part in a Wednesday hearing of the Congressional Budget Committee in which she responded to questions about some of the agency’s employees not feeling safe on what laws they should follow and what laws they should ignore.
The background is that the White House issued a directive on more relaxed handling of deportations, which are contrary to U.S. migration laws. These new measures are meant to delay the deportation of “non-priority” illegal immigrants.
“If I gave the instructions or directives that went against the law, I would understand if they did not want to follow them,” said Republican Congressman David Young during the hearing.
He got no support from the Government Chief.
– “This is where you and I have a fundamentally different view,” said Sarah Saldaña and laid out the directive from the White House that apply to the rules, no matter what the law says.

Extract from Obama’s threat against ICE agents:
Jose Diaz-Balart: How do you insure that ICE and border patrol agents won’t be deporting people like this? What are the consequences
Obama: The bottom line is if somebody’s working for ICE and there’s a policy and they don’t follow the policy there are going to be consequences to it. So I can’t speak to a specific problem.
What I can talk about is what’s true in the government generally. In the U S military when you get an order, you’re expected to follow it. It doesn’t mean that everybody follows the order. If they don’t, they’ve got a problem and the same is going to be true with respect to the policies that we’re putting forward.
